Welcome!

**AUDITION CALL**

Join us for Dartmouth Player’s ambitious production of Stephen Sondheim’s cult-favourite “Company.”

Auditions will be held Wednesday, August 19 and Thursday, August 20 from 6-9pm at Dartmouth Players. Auditions are on a first-come, first-serve basis. No appointments necessary.

It’s a big project in a short amount of time, so we’re looking for musical theatre actors between 25-65 who are up for the challenge.

We are casting for all roles (6 men, 8 women) and we ask that auditioners are able to work with sheet music. There *will* be dancing in this show. We may ask you about your previous dance experience, but there will be no dance element to the auditions.

Rehersals are tentatively scheduled for Monday and Wednesday evenings with Sunday afternoon/evenings as well. PLEASE NOTE: These are not finalized and we will be asking auditioners for their prefered availability at the auditions. Not every actor will be called for every rehearsal.

Rehearsals will start the week of Monday, August 24.

The show runs October 28 till November 14 with shows Wednesday - Sunday.

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

Music: Please prepare a contemporary, up-tempo musical theatre song. There may be an accompanist. You may also be asked to sing an acapella musical theatre ballad. You may be asked to demonstrate an ability to read/understand music and rhythms.
Monologue: Please prepare a 2 minute monologue of your choice. If you would prefer, there will be cold read material available from the show.

If you have questions concerning any of the above, please contact the director, Laura Thornton, at laura.c.thornton@gmail.com.

Thank you for your interest, we look forward to meeting you!

Company (musical) 
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by George Furth
Directed by Laura Thornton
October 28 - November 14, 2015

Company is Stephen Sondheim's ode to the modern relationship. Winning 7 Tony Awards (including Best MusicalBest Lyrics and Best Score) this dark comedy focuses on confirmed bachelor Robert on the night of his 35th birthday. Sondheim's razor sharp wit explores dating and marriage from all sides, while asking "what's it really about?" Featuring some of Sondheim's most famous songs, audience members will see themselves in the vividly realistic characters on stage.
 
The Compleat Works of William Shakespeare Abridged, (comedy) 
By Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield, 
Directed by Tamara Smith 
January 13 - 30, 2016

Life is short. The complete works of Shakespeare are long. Now all of the bard’s most familiar pieces are condensed into one hilarious rollercoaster spoof! This has become one of the world’s most popular shows, and you don’t have to be a fan of Shakespeare, or even familiar with his plays, to enjoy this inventive, fast-paced comedy!

And Then There Were None, (mystery) 
By Agatha Christie 
Directed by Bryn Rowlands 
March 30 - April 16, 2016

Dame Agatha's first successful play is set on Soldier Island off the coast of Devon in the 1940's. A group of strangers is invited to a lovely estate, where, one by one, like the 10 little soldiers in the nursery rhyme, they are murdered.  But whodunit?  And will there be anyone left at the end?  Christie claimed this play to be her best piece of craftsmanship.
 
The Dining Room, (comedy) 
By A. R. Gurney
Directed by Nick Jupp
June 1 - 18, 2016

Formal dining rooms are a special place different than any other. Formal celebrations, grave discussions, flirtations, visitors, secrets, teenage indiscretions and many other occurrences happen within the unique atmosphere of a dining room. In A. R. Gurney’s “Dining Room”, six actors create eighteen unique situations and events that will bring back personal memories, make you laugh and maybe shed a tear.
