We’re holding auditions for our Christmas play, ‘The Vicar of Dibley – The second coming’. More details about the play can be found by clicking here.
Audition pieces will be available on the night, but if you want to prepare, you can watch the TV episode as it is mostly based around the Christmas special.
Where: Gladstone Theatre, Port Sunlight.
When: Monday 25th June 2018 at 7:30pm
List of characters:
The Reverend Geraldine Granger (The Vicar) – A jolly down to earth female vicar. Principle role who is on stage for majority of the play.
Alice Horton (nee Tinker) – The blonde, scatter-brained, dim-witted but hugely lovable verger and best friend to Geraldine. Recently married to Hugo. Principle role.
Hugo Horton – A sweet natured, childlike man, also dim-witted but kind husband to Alice and son of David. Principle role.
David Horton – The stately and slightly pompous chairman of the village parish. Rigid and old-fashioned, he is the only other sane character in the village apart from the vicar! Principle role.
Frank Pickle – The dull but friendly parish secretary. Dubbed the most boring man in Britain! Principle role.
Owen Newitt – Local farmer and parish council member. A man with extremely poor personal hygiene and a huge crush on the vicar! Principle role.
Jim Trott – Is he a parish council member?… No no no no YES! An idiosyncratic but lovable character, also with a small crush on the vicar!
Mrs Cropley – Parish Council member and church organist. An unusual talent for “baking”. Principle role.
Vet – 6 lines in final scene
Woman in audience (one line) – only required for final scene and will be planted in the audience. No audition required, please get in touch if you are interested in this part.
Choir – we need a choir for the show to sing some Christmas Carols. If you’re interested in coming in the show to sing some festive songs, there’s no need to audition, but please get in touch to let us know you’re interested.
We look forward to seeing you there 🙂
