Auditions

Auditions for our upcoming shows are held at the theatre. They are open to all but if you are chosen to act or work as backstage crew you will need to become an Associate Member of Bromley Little Theatre before your first rehearsal. Members of casts are also expected to help run the theatre when they are not performing – for example by helping to run the bar or constructing sets.

Educating Rita

by Willy Russell

Directed by Kerrin Roberts

Playing dates

Wednesday 22 February to Sunday 26th February

Auditions

2:00 on Sunday 16th October at BLT

Rita, a young hairdresser, wants to know everything; this is at odds with what her family and friends expect of her. She embarks on an Open University course. Frank, a lecturer at a “proper university” has signed up to be her tutor because he needs the money. Rita and Frank make us laugh and think about life’s choices as they change each other.


Hedda Gabler

By Henrik Ibsen
Translated by Edmund Gosse and William Archer
Edited by Mark Perry

Directed by Scott James

Playing dates

Thursday 13th April to Saturday 22nd April (not Sunday 16th April) (inc Charity night on 13th April)

Auditions

3:15 on Sunday 16th October

The story of a woman confined by the restraints of her time. Hedda longs for something more, fighting off wild impulses and urges to control and influence life around her – how far will she go to get this? Ibsen’s classic play is as thrilling and shocking today as it was in 1890, the year of it’s premiere.


The Height of the Storm

by Florian Zeller

Directed by Jane Lobb

Playing dates

Wednesday 26th April to Sunday 30th April

Auditions

4:30pm on Sunday 16th October

‘You think people are dead, but that’s not always the case.’

André and Madeleine have been in love for over fifty years, but this weekend, as their daughters visit, something feels unusual. Flowers arrive, but who sent them? A woman from the past turns up, but who is she? Why is a man sharpening knives? And why does André feel like he isn’t there at all?


Separate Tables

By Terence Rattigan

Directed by Hilary Cordery and Kay O’Dea

Playing dates

Thursday 11th May to Saturday 20th May (not Sunday 14th May) (inc Charity night on 11th May)

Auditions

12 noon on Sunday 13th November at BLT

Rattigan’s pair of one-act plays is a vital portrait of post-war Britain in flux. In a small, shabby hotel in Bournemouth, a fascinating mix of personalities play out a brutal clash of generations. It is classic 1950’s theatre at its finest: witty, poignant, slick dialogue overlaying a darker subtext of guilt and inhibition. A first for BLT and not to be missed!


A Few Good Men

By Aaron Sorkin

Directed by Paul Campion

Playing dates

Thursday 8th June to Saturday 17th June (not Sunday 11th June) (inc Charity night on 8th June)

Auditions

1:30pm on Sunday 13th November at BLT

Two US Marines are on trial over the death of a fellow Marine. At first, their young rookie lawyer is more interested in playing softball than fighting their case. But as events unfold he finds himself valiantly defending his clients and uncovering a shocking conspiracy. A gripping – and timely – courtroom drama that puts the military mentality on the stand.


Love, Loss and What I Wore

By Nora and Delia Ephron based on the book by Ilene Beckerman

Directed by Donna Dawson

Playing dates

Wednesday 21st June to Sunday 25th June

Auditions

3:00pm on Sunday 13th November at BLT

Witty, wise and wonderful, this play proves that great storytelling is always in fashion. From the brilliant Ephron sisters who created such mega-hits as “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail,” “Sleepless in Seattle” and “Silkwood,” this funny, tender and compelling piece uses clothing as a metaphor for all the big moments in our lives. A magnificent celebration of life through old but unforgotten clothes.


Gentleman Jack

Adapted from the diaries of Ann Lister by Ross McGregor

Directed by Stevie Hughes

Playing dates

Thursday 6th July to Saturday 15th July (not Sunday 9th July) (inc Charity night on 6th July)

Auditions

4:00pm on Sunday 13th November at BLT

Landowner, mountaineer, industrialist, virago and libidinous, full-on lesbian, Anne Lister fought her way into the industrial revolution when women were usually marginalised. Anne flouted the conventions of the day, challenging the bigots, male supremacists and anyone else who stood in her way! A passionate, dramatic tale of love and survival in the face of prejudice.
