Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Open Auditions Adults

11 April // 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Would you love to perform on a professional stage?

Step inside a world of pure imagination! We’re on the lookout for adults to take to the big stage at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre for a very special fundraising performance of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in August 2024.

No experience necessary – just enthusiasm, commitment, and a love of theatre are needed for this exciting chance to shine on the big stage.

All money raised from this community project will go directly to Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity, which is dedicated to delivering the best hospice care for everyone who needs it across Buckinghamshire and its borders, wherever and whenever they need it.

If possible, we ask that our adult cast make a donation to the Charity. This will help to cover the cost of rehearsal venues, costumes and theatre hire.

During the audition there will be a brief introduction to the team and an outline chat of the audition process. You will need to learn the song or dialogue for your chosen role.

Audition dialogues and songs are contained in the audition pack here

Please bring a 6″x4″ photo of yourself, light refreshments and any required medication.

No. We welcome auditionees who have no experience, who are enthusiastic, committed and have a love of theatre.

Something that is light, comfortable and easy to move in.

It is unlikely that you will be needed every day during the rehearsal period, we will send an outline rehearsal schedule in mid-July.
