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.
Playing dates: Tuesday June 15, to Thursday June 17 inc at 11-00am and 2-00pm
‘When The Lights Go On Again’
The entertainment requires 4 good singers (2 men and 2 women or 1 man and 3 women) who can confidently and of course tunefully sing the WW2 songs and deliver short interludes of script with panache. If you are free during the day from June 15 – 17 and believe that you are a strong singer please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a script and details of the audition process which will most certainly require a voice tape of a popular song of the 1940’s era. The deadline for your expression of interest is Saturday 17 April. Rehearsals will commence immediately over ZOOM and then in person after May 17. To help you to decide on an audition song the following feature as part of the entertainment: ‘That Old Black Magic’, ‘When the Lights Go On Again’, ‘Bluebirds Over The White Cliffs of Dover’, ‘A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square’, Boogie Woogie, Bugle Boy’, ‘In the Mood’.

A PLAYREADING OF ‘INK’ BY JAMES GRAHAM
Following the popularity of ‘Quiz’ by James Graham there will be a reading over ZOOM of the highly entertaining, satirical play ‘Ink’ also by James Graham which traces the rise of ‘The Sun’ newspaper and its founder Rupert Murdoch. It is at once funny, chilling, thrilling, dramatic and highly entertaining. There are over 30 colourful characters that could be played by a reading group of about 10 upwards. The reading will take place at 7-30 on Thursday 22 April. Please express interest as a reader and /or listener by Saturday 10 April to email@example.com I will then sort out how you can access a script and allocate role/s.
playing dates Tuesday 20 July to Saturday 24 July in the evening
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
After months of restrictions and, for the vast majority of Bromley’s theatre societies, still no prospect of live performance in their venues, we would like to offer a very special opportunity for members of existing societies, those interested in participating in increasing the awareness of local arts, and those with a passion for theatre, music and more, to come together and celebrate the many talents residing in Bromley.
Pauline Armour, Simon Clark, David Evans and Debbie Griffiths, have joined forces as Bromley Community Arts Theatre (BCAT) to direct an open air production of William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ at Bromley and Sheppard’s College in the heart of Bromley. We encourage all performers, backstage crew, and front of house volunteers to join us to make this a wonderful event. The playing dates are Tuesday 20 July to Saturday 24 July in the evening. Please contact us by Saturday 24 April at the very latest if you are interested in being involved in this production in any capacity. Follow the link for details of how to express interest and how to audition.
If you wish to be considered as a performer, we shall be holding auditions for roles in the play in the grounds of Bromley and Sheppard’s College during the day on May 1, 2 and 3. Due to COVID social distancing restrictions we shall assign a specific time slot for your audition. Once you have expressed interest in auditioning for a role, we shall send you an electronic script and the audition pieces and agree an audition day and time. Due to the evolving nature of the Covid-19 regulations, cast and crew alike will need to be flexible and adaptable, with an understanding that things could change at a moment’s notice – so all involved will need to be very well prepared for whatever eventuality. To express your interest in auditioning for this production or working alongside us in any capacity on this exciting journey – please do contact us by 24 April at the latest: firstname.lastname@example.org
