We are an award-winning theatre company with a new approach to new writing.
We're holding OPEN AUDITIONS!
As part of our TAKEOVER of the Bunker Theatre next month we will be holding workshop audition sessions on Friday 7th July. Please note that these are general auditions- we are not currently casting anything- we are hoping to meet brilliant actors and then keep them in mind for future PLAY projects.
The session will be run by Rebecca, Katharine and one of our associate directors.
If you would like to be considered for an audition then please contact katharine(at)playtheatreco.com with a link to your spotlight CV. We want to see as many people as possible but we only have a finite amount of time so please be aware that places are strictly limited and we cannot guarantee that everyone who replies will get a slot.
Please get in touch before Wednesday 28th June, 10am, if you are successful we’ll let you know soon after that.
