AUDITIONS: THE GREAT GATSBY
Devilishly handsome men and outrageously beautiful women needed to recreate the ‘Roaring Twenties’ for the opening production of the new season. Flapper dresses, cloche hats and bobbed hair for the ladies, sharp suits and short back and sides for the men. The Charleston, the Black Bottom, cocktails, champagne and bathtub gin, life is one long party. You know you want to be there!
Auditions will take place on:
MONDAY 26th JUNE in the GREEN ROOM at 7.30pm
TUESDAY 27th JUNE in the REHEARSAL ROOM at 7.30pm
Call backs (if necessary) THURSDAY 29th JUNE at 7.30
There is no need to prepare an audition piece.

In addition, I would like four actors (2m 2f any age) to play several small speaking parts as well as being extra party guests, waiters, waitresses etc.
The play is set in Long Island and New York City in summer 1922
The episodic nature of the play means there is the possibility of some flexibility in the rehearsal schedule to accommodate holidays.
The production runs from SATURDAY 9th till SATURDAY 16th SEPTEMBER
