Here is your chance to portray one of these characters in one of the greatest farces of all times. Below are the list of roles to be auditioned at Centenary Theatre on Saturday 24 February at 11am.

Cnr Halsbury and Queenscroft Streets, Chelmer.

Performance scheduled for May/June.

Any further information please contact William (Director) at willchar04@outlook.com.

Please bring your bio to the audition and be prepared for a headshot.

Lloyd Dallas: The director of a play-within-the-play, Nothing On. Temperamental, exacting and sarcastic. Involved with both Brooke and Poppy.

Dotty Otley: A middle-aged television star who is not only the top-billed star but also one of the play’s principal investors. Dating the much younger Garry.

Garry Lejeune: The play’s leading man, a solid actor who is completely incapable of finishing a sentence unless it is dialogue. Constantly stutters and ends sentences with “you know…” Dating Dotty and prone to jealousy.

Brooke Ashton: A young, inexperienced actress from London. She pays no attention to others, either in performance or backstage, and persists in her role as scripted regardless of any interruption or mayhem. She is always losing her contact lenses, without which she is blind. Part of the Lloyd–Poppy–Brooke love triangle.

Frederick (Freddie) Fellowes: Has a serious fear of violence and blood, both of which give him nosebleeds. Well-meaning, but lacks confidence and is rather dim-witted.

Belinda Blair: Cheerful and sensible, a reliable actress and the company’s de facto peacemaker. Something of a gossip, and a bit two-faced. Has a rather protective attitude towards Freddie.

Selsdon Mowbray: An elderly, half-deaf “pro” with a long, storied career and a drinking problem. If he is not in sight while rehearsing, the stage crew must find him before he finds anything alcoholic.

Poppy Norton-Taylor: Assistant Stage Manager and understudy to the female roles. Emotional, skittish and over-sensitive. Part of the Lloyd-Poppy-Brooke love triangle and, by act two, pregnant with Lloyd’s baby.

Tim Allgood: The over-worked and easily flustered Stage Manager, who must understudy, fix the set and run Lloyd’s errands on top of his usual duties.
