Open Auditions - Freshers' Week Shows

by Rachel Bussom

Bedlam Theatre will be holding open auditions for four shows going on during the Freshers’ Week Festival 2013! The auditions will take place on Saturday 27 April and Sunday 28 April, 2-6pm both days.

No experience or preparation is necessary. Pieces will be provided on the day. Just come to the side door, ring the doorbell to be let in, and have fun!

The shows auditioning are:


‘Verona’s the place from where our play is picked! Two families lived there…and MAN were they ticked!’ Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, but it’s not as accessible to modern audiences as we’d like. So we have decided to shake it up a bit with Peter Bloedel’s Seussy retelling of the great classic. Silly, colorful, and fun, all while entirely spoken in rhyming tetrameter!


For Alice, Kelly and Christa, 9/11 is not just a past event. It’s a present horror which continually affects their lives. They are the ones who attend the memorial service each year, they are the ones who are haunted by their husbands’ deaths. They remember so the world never forgets. They are the Sentinels.


Four actors guide you through a series of hilarious retro sketches set in the 1990s where technology goes wrong and misunderstandings are rife.


Frank is a professor of literature and a failed writer, turned to alcoholism. Rita, his newest student is a working class, outspoken, Liverpudlian hairdresser who wants to know ‘everything.’ She is the last person that Frank would expect to tutor on an open university course. However, Rita isn’t the only one learning as their two worlds clash head-on.
