Wyrd Sisters Audition 08/03/18

Wryd Sisters by Terry Pratchett adapted by Stephen Briggs
8th March University of Sheffield Drama Studio Rehearsal Rooms 8pm
Terry Pratchett's story about three witches, foul murder, a ghost, and a playwright named Hwel, has a large cast and we operate open auditions.

The lead characters are the three wyrd sisters and an evil duchess (definitely not Lady Macbeth).  This is a certain Shakespearean tale told from the point of view of the witches, who are the heroes of the piece.

The Company is looking for actors of all ages and types but especially people wanting to play strong women to audition at the Drama Studio at 8pm on Thursday 8th March.
The audition is open to everyone, and their are plenty of roles.

Wyrd Sisters Auditions

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare's Macbeth and then turns it up 'till the knob comes off. It's all there - a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

Adapted by Stephen Briggs (who assures us the cast should still be able to be in the pub by 10 o'clock) and presented by The Company, a group of players who don't so much stroll but saunter vaguely pubwards.

Our auditions operate as follows:
  • All are welcome
  • No preparation is necessary
  • The rehearsal rooms are up the Shearwood Rd side of the Drama Studio past the stage door
  • There is a coded lock on the door, if no-one is about to let you in please knock

The Man In The Iron Mask

So, there's just one more rehearsal to go for "The Man In The Iron Mask" before we get into the theatre for show week.  It has been a fantastic show to be involved with, with so many laughs along the way.  The cast and director have worked so very hard, not only at lines and characterisation but also at whacking each other with huge great swords!  The fight scenes have been great fun to be a part of and they will look spectacular on stage - I think there are 20 people with weapons of various sorts on stage at the same time in one scene!  And it's not just stunts you can expect - it really is very funny with drama and romance along the way. What more could anyone ask for?

It has been a little while since The Company took on a swashbuckling spectacular like this (Treasure Island back in 2010) but it's what we do best.  Please do get booking tickets so you don't miss out.

We're performing at The University Drama Studio from Wednesday 1st until Saturday 4th July.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start.  Tickets paid for on the door are £9 (£6 for students and OAPs) but if you book in advance via our website or via this link you save 50p per ticket.

Details of auditions for our October production of "The Hound Of The Baskervilles" will be coming around soon (or on display in the foyer of the theatre during show week - another reason to come along!) and if you ever want any more information about what we're doing and how you can get more involved, please email me at

Thanks for your ongoing support.
