Auditions

The Woman in Black – by Stephen Malatratt

 

A frightening and gripping horror story
Haunted by the ominous spectre of a woman in black who is terrorizing a village. Arthur Kipps enlists Sam Daily, a young skeptic, to help tell his spine-chilling tale. But as the pair delve deeper into Arthur’s traumatic memories, a world of eerie marshes, moaning winds, and howling spectres begin to emerge. The borders between make-believe and reality blur… and the flesh begins to creep.

Director: Jeremy Webb

Character breakdown

 

Casting "The Woman in Black," by Susan Hill, adapted by Stephen Mallatratt. "The Woman in Black" is one of the longest-running plays in the West End. 

"The Woman in Black" takes place over three time periods – the 1880’s, the 1920’s and the 1950’s (present-day in the play). The two leads take on the telling of the tale of Arthur Kipps playing multiple characters. Each must have great training, have great dialect work and be comfortable in the style of each era above. A sense of humor is essential.

 

Title Character

Minimum 5'5" tall. Movement skills an advantage

This performer can have a movement/ dance background. Otherworldly, haunting, impacts the story through movement and presence. Nonspeaking. Due to the nature of the show, this artist is unbilled.

 

The Actor (Young Kipps) (Late 20’s-mid-30’s)

An actor working in the London Theatre of the fifties. He is well-spoken, well-trained and technically proficient in the handling of verse. Not mannered or affected, he’s justly confident of his abilities, and of his prospects for success. The performer cast will be transformational, charming, charismatic, a brilliant storyteller and be possessed of a great sense of humour.

 

Arthur Kipps (55-65)

A man in tremendous pain, very close to an emotional and nervous collapse. Quiet, self-effacing, well-educated with very little in the way of self-confidence. A lawyer, working for an established London firm, he displays little of the ability he doubtless possesses. In the course of the play, we are to learn what it is in his personal history that has reduced him to this state. This performer must be a character actor since he needs to portray very distinctly different people sharply and with a minimum of props, costumes, etc. He must always remember however that he is Kipps becoming those people - his default state is that of the nervous lawyer to whom all this actually happened. 

 

Sides will be emailed to selected artists with an audition time. Please indicate which role you want to be considered for.

 

Video accepted from selected artists that are unable to attend in person.


Alice in Pantoland …written by Jeremy Webb…

 

Don't Be Late, Adventure Awaits!
Pantoland is in jeopardy when the evil Queen of Hearts unleashes a plot that threatens the magical land. It’s up to Alice and a star-studded team of magnificent characters to save the day! Packed with punchy pop songs, laughs and zany antics, this show is a trip down the rabbit hole for the kid in all of us.

 

Neptune Theatre continues its new tradition of taking a well-known family story and giving it the ‘panto’ treatment.

Our cast will be singing, dancing, comedic, multi-role playing genius’.
