New Stagers' October play is Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen, Adapted by Richard Eyre, directed by Ian Pring

 

Dates: Tuesday 24 to Saturday 28 October 2017  (no Friday performance) – 7:30pm

Oswald, a young artist, returns to his home from Paris, carrying a hidden and deadly disease. His mother is opening an orphanage in memory of her late husband, a pillar of the community whose perversions were kept from public view. But the orphanage is uninsured and one of the builders is careless with matches…

Increasingly desperate, Oswald asks his mother to help him die when the time comes.

Ibsen’s play sparked moral outrage when it was first performed, and over 100 years later remains a visceral portrayal of the diseased side of the human condition.

Ghosts will be performed at the Colour House Theatre at Merton Abbey Mills, Wimbledon

FRANKENSTEIN

Box office: sedos.co.uk

“Slowly I learnt the ways of humans: how to ruin, how to hate, how to debase, how to humiliate. And at the feet of my master I learnt the highest of human skills, the skill no other creature owns: I finally learnt how to lie.”

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein's bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Frankenstein was first presented at the National Theatre, London, on 5 February 2011, directed by Danny Boyle.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Two con men, a beautiful woman and the elite of the French Riviera collide in this sexy and irreverent farce.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards. Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress, Christine Colgate, wins, and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
Tickets £17.50 / £14 concessions

Ordinary Days
ORDINARY DAYS |  27-30 September 2017

Box office: sedos.co.uk

“Ordinary Days captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility." — Charles Isherwood, The New York Times”

From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes Ordinary Days, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point).

Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfilment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life.

Ordinary Days is an original musical for anyone who's ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humour and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.

The Nether

by JENNIFER HALEY| 26-30 September 2017

Box office: sedos.co.uk

NETHER REALM

Another world for mythical creatures

Demon world

A dimension of evil or imagination

urban dictionary.com 

The internet has evolved into the Nether, a vast network of virtual reality realms. Users may log in, choose an identity, and indulge any desire. When Detective Morris investigates a realm called The Hideaway where people with a sexual interest in children may live out their fantasies involving children, she brings its creator in for interrogation. They discover they have made emotional attachments in his realm that blind them to the greater questions of ethical behaviour, both in the imagination and the outside world.

The Rivals
THE RIVALS

by RICHARD BRINSLEY SHERIDAN | 19-23 September 2017

Box office: sedos.co.uk

“COME, COME, WE MUST LAY ASIDE SOME OF OUR ROMANCE - A LITTLE WEALTH AND COMFORT MAY BE ENDURED AFTER ALL”

Wealthy, head-strong beauty, Lydia Languish, wants to marry a poor man to offend her guardian Aunt and hopefully prompt a romantic elopement. Jack Absolute, himself a wealthy man, learns of this, and adopts the fake identity of Beverley, a poorly paid Ensign, in order to win her affections. From this deception, many complications arise with hilarious consequences, not least because she has two other eager suitors in the shape of Bob Acres and Sir Lucius O’Trigger.

This pedigree comedy is too often staged simply as an academic opportunity to study the period. It is here to be presented as the fine situation comedy it is and it will definitely be played for laughs. That, after all, was the writer’s intention.

The Rivals
Bridewell Theatre, Bride Lane, Fleet Street, London EC4Y 8EQ
19-23 Sept 2017 at 7.30pm, Saturday matinee at 3pm

Chorley writer Jim Cartwright has crafted a modern fairytale of love and hope as Little Voice finally finds a voice of her own.

Tring Festival Company and Tring Youth Theatre Project present 'Spring Awakening' at The Court Theatre at Pendley, Tring from 5th-9th September 2017. Curtain up at 7.30pm, plus Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.




Based on Frank Wedekind’s controversial 1891 play this brilliantly scored, Tony Award winning rock musical takes you on a journey of sexual awakening, youth revolt, and self-discovery in a time when the establishment held all the cards. Although many will find the themes and subject matter disturbing, the underlying strength of this piece of theatre lies in its ultimate truth as the young men and women of Wedekinds original play together with todays music travel the fraught and rocky path of adolescence, discovering their bodies, their minds, and much more! An electrically charged and vibrant celebration of youth and rebellion, Spring Awakening fuses issues of morality, sexuality, and modern music into a story that packs a powerful emotional punch.

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments.

REHEARSALS

Rehearsals will be held in South Wimbledon on Monday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons and will begin on Monday 7 August. We will not require everyone at every rehearsal and we will ask people on their audition form to give us their availability so we can try and match that to our rehearsal schedule. However, we will expect the cast to be as committed to the process as physically possible. As we get closer to show week, rehearsals will increase and it is very likely that everyone will be required for all rehearsals in the last two weeks running up to the show.

BOOKING YOUR AUDITION

To book your audition please send an email to the show’s producers at westsidestory@mayhemtheatre.co.uk stating your name, email address, phone number and whether you would prefer to audition on Sunday 30 or Monday 31 July. Once your audition is booked, we will email you a confirmation with your workshop start time, the time of your individual audition slot and a copy of the audition material.
