Ready to tread the boards?

Auditions for our upcoming production of Shelagh Stephenson's award-winning comedy take place on 10 December.  



Our 2024 schedule has now been finalised, and some excellent roles are up for grabs. Be sure to keep an eye on as we'll be holding auditions for each of the following shows: 

  • Memory of Water, directed by Orna Joseph. Find out more here >

  • A Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by Alice Collins

  • The Real Inspector Hound, directed by Rhonda Lidgold

  • Scene Unseen, produced by Kate Bromage, Jo Dodds and Colin Sheehan

how does it work?

Auditions are held for every show we produce - so there are lots of opportunities to get involved! Here are just some things to keep in mind when it comes to auditions: 

Who can audition? 

  • Auditions are open to all - including non-members

  • Unlike other groups, we don't require you to audition beforehand to become a member

What's the process?

  • We aim to complete casting four months before the production takes place

  • Audition pieces are circulated prior to each audition

  • You don't need to learn the lines but to give yourself the best chance, it's best to familiarise yourself with the text

  • We generally aim to cast on the day

What happens if I get cast?

  • Cheers! First things first, we celebrate! 

  • New to the group? You will need to join as a New Stagers member

  • Subs are £84 p/a (contribution if unwaged), payable £7 monthly by standing order

  • Your director/producer will be in touch with all of the key show details and relevant rehearsal/tech dates 

Being part of a New Stagers production:

  • We rehearse twice a week: Tuesdays 20:15 - 22:15 and Sundays, 16:00 - 20:00

  • Rehearsals run for approximately three months. For example, the October show will begin rehearsing in August and run in the final week of October

  • Most shows include a run of four nights, Wednesday to Saturday, however, the run for some shows can be extended to two weeks and may include matinee performances

  • Run times and show numbers will be confirmed before auditions
