We will contact everyone on the shortlist directly, either by telephone and/or email and we will give you more details about further auditions, rehearsals and the show dates.
It may be that some adult performers have been shortlisted for two roles, including a different role from the one they have already auditioned for: We will let you know which role/s we think are most suitable for you and will invite you to a further audition if you would like to be considered for the new role. We are currently looking for suitable venues and times for the final shortlist auditions and will let you know the time and date of these as soon as possible.
And finally – We are very sorry to disappoint those of you who auditioned for main roles but were not shortlisted – the competition was strong!
However, we would be delighted if you would still like to be involved in the show… there are lots of chorus roles available for male and female performers and there are also other smaller speaking characters still to be cast.
We specifically need some young lady performers (minimum 5ft tall) to play the postulants and younger nuns at the Abbey and we also need male performers of all ages to play Herr Zeller, the German admiral, officials, guests at the ball and officers in Act 2.
Please let us know if you or your daughter would like to be considered for the female chorus roles or if you’d like to be considered for one of the male speaking roles.
Jane and Greg.
