Auditionee form - Please complete and print out the form posted below and bring it to auditions - together with a copy of your resume and a headshot

Calendar - Please review carefully the rehearsal and performance schedule, which is also posted below, and indicate all your conflicts on the back of your auditionee form - this is really important in order to plan blocking rehearsals, etc

Auditionees please arrive promptly

Auditionees are asked to prepare a 30 - 60 second monologue with a British accent

Young ladies auditioning for the role of Eliza please prepare two monologues -
one with a cockney accent and one with a proper British accent

The plan is to have all auditionees deliver their monologues first, after which we will move on to cold readings from the script

All roles non-paying • Age ranges young to old
British accents preferred
