Auditions are open to all members and non-members. The only requirements are acting ability and an appropriate part being available. Please note that once you have been given a part in a production, you will need to join the Tamaritans as a full member.
The next auditions will be on Thursday 5th July at 7.30 at Manor Gardens for "The Hound of the Baskervilles", adapted by American author Tim Kelly from the original story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Hopefully the autumnal feel of the dense mists of Dartmoor in this story will be just what our audiences want by the time we get to our performances, 24th-27th October 2018 in the Red House. To be directed by Noel Preston-Jones.
There are 10 characters (5 women & 5 men) and a good spread of ages:
Lady Agatha Mortimer: forceful, ‘tweedy’, mature, medical doctor
Perkins: a young maid
Dr Watson: a colleague of Holmes
Mrs Barrymore: the housekeeper
Sir Henry Baskerville: young nobleman, with American accent
Barrymore: the butler; capable, but sinister …..
Kathy Stapleton: vivacious, flirtatious young lady
Jack: her brother, prone to emotional outbursts
Laura Lyons: capable young woman - with a dangerous secret!
Hope to see you there.
After that the next auditions will be for the February 2019 play "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller. This is to be performed on 18-23 Feb 2019 at The Red House.
The auditions for this are on Monday 24 September 2018. Before that there is a play reading scheduled on Friday 14th September (7.30 at Manor Gardens).
