STRIKES

A special 20th anniversary of The Dream Factory production! 

 

Summer 1911, as temperatures soared workers answered the call to strike, it seemed that only the school children were still working. However, by September 1911 a wave of school strikes swept the country led by Tommy Atkins and his friend, from the Mumps Academy, Cynthia Fanshawe.

GRETEL

 

Christmas this year is set to be a HUGE adventure! Toby Quash writes a brand new interpretation of Grimm’s tale, which sets the story of Hansel & Gretel in a whole new light, where anything is possible and nothing – and no-one – is to be trusted. A new play, especially for Playbox Theatre, and written in collaboration with Blank-Shift… this is going to be an extraordinary piece of theatre to set The Dream Factory alight this winter!

 

Emily Quash directs and is looking for a tight cast of multi-talented young actors who are ferociously committed, imaginative and hard-working to use both voice and physical theatre to bring this new play to life in a way that only Playbox can!

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PARENTS AND MEMBERS:

Playbox Theatre auditions are highly competitive (as is reflected in the whole world of theatre). Auditionees are scored in many different ways and the final ‘company’ is selected according to a range of specific criteria. We ask parents to support their children, and Playbox Theatre, completely and to acknowledge that these processes are selective and there is a high probability of a young person not being successful. Please help to manage their expectations and to be certain that it is right for them to audition at this time. Casting may take up to 4 weeks.

 

All cast must potentially be available to attend every rehearsal, and every performance. Not all cast will necessarily be called to every rehearsal but must be available. Please read the dates very carefully before coming to the audition as rehearsal absence is never permitted.

 

All rehearsals and performances held at The Dream Factory, Stratford Road, Warwick CV34 6LE.
