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.

Auditions

Mel Edison has definitely had better days. The summer heat is unbearable, the air-con is on the blink, the noisy neighbours are driving him crazy, his high-stress job is about to vanish and the television news is getting weirder by the second. Luckily Edna, his loving and supportive wife, is a beacon of hope and sanity. But not for long…

A couple of roles still need to be cast in this play. Contact the director, Andy Solts for an electronic copy of the audition pieces: andyjsolts@gmail.com


Harry Edison – Medium Role – 50s
Mel’s big brother is a self appointed father figure and head of the family. He is a stressed-out, self-made and self-important businessman. Basically a good man, he remains quietly jealous of Mel for reasons explored in the play.


Pearl – Small Role – 50s
Mel’s widowed sister. Very sweet but also batty and ‘away with the fairies’.


Audition Pieces:
Harry
47-50: ‘He was always nervous’ until ‘You’re the crazy one’.
50-53: ‘What are we going to do’ until ‘Agreed!’
66-68: ‘Here. This is for you and Edna’ until ‘You grew up very fast’.

Pearl (Jessie and Pauline)
47-50: ‘He was always nervous’ until ‘You’re the crazy one’.
50-53: ‘What are we going to do’ until ‘Agreed!’
