• AUDITION NOTICE for the SPECIAL 70th ANNIVERSARY PRODUCTION.

    Audition Dates: Wedndesday March 11 and Thursday March 12 at 7pm both evenings.

    Performance Dates May 27 to 30, 2015.

    What’s it all about?
    Would you like to be cast in a memorable production by Singapore’s oldest and most respected theatre company? The Stage Club has produced more than 300 shows over seven decades, the latest just finished was “Don’t Dress for Dinner” with a cast of six talented players, some very new and others very experienced.
    The May production will consist of seven scenes from seven plays – averaging 15 minutes each - as well as some musical interludes. The show will require a cast of at least 30 with acting and singing talent. Some might well be asked to be in more than one scene/play.
    It will feature the best of British comedy, drama and music, though the ages, producing one night of “gloriously funny and entertaining theatre.”
    Four directors, with years of experience with the Stage Club, will be involved in the special production to mark seven decades of community theatre in Singapore. They are currently finalising the selection of scenes and plays.
    To give you some idea of what’s in store, selections have already been made from four plays – which have been performed in past years. They include:
    • Geoffrey Chaucer’s timeless “Canterbury Tales”, and when presented by the Club in 2001, the actors: “burst onto the stage with all the energy and exuberance of the originals…. which adds up to wonderfully entertaining theatre”;

    • George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion”, which was set in the early 1900s, was the basis for the musical “My Fair Lady”, featuring the Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle and the English professor Henry Higgins;

    • “How the Other Half Loves”, by Alan Ayckbourn, features two very different couples in two separate but over-lapping living rooms, set in the late 1960s

    • Richard Gordon’s raucous comedy “Doctor in the House”, which covers the exploits and various pranks of young medical students and nurses set in London in the 1950s.

    The production calls for a wide range of ages and styles in acting and singing. But as can be detected by the scenes/plays already chosen, there is more opportunity for comedy and “characters” than straight drama.

    Auditions Details:
    It will be a group audition, so be prepared to stay the full session of the audition. Each audition should last about 2 hours. Please come on time.

    Please come prepared with a short piece, which you think might be appropriate for one of the scenes/plays, or which best displays your talent. You might well have been involved in previous Stage Club productions, so you could always select something you’ve done before.
    But even if you have never been on stage before and think you have “a hidden talent”, come and show us what you do best.
    Over the years, The Stage Club has often provided a platform for “new talent” and whether you are “foreign talent” or Singaporean, all are encouraged to audition for this the highlight production of the club’s 70th year.

    Should you have any questions, please email the Executive Director Elena Scherer at admin@stageclub.com
    If for some reason, you cannot attend the auditions at the times/dates given, and would like to be considered for the show, please email with your details, including something about yourself and your experience. It might well be possible to arrange further auditions.
