Julius Caesar Auditions

On stage 5 - 8th February 2014 will be Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. Auditions will be held on Tuesday 5th and Thursday 7th November at 8pm in the Drama Studio rehearsal rooms.

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

"And why should Caesar be a tyrant then?
Poor man! I know he would not be a wolf,
But that he sees the Romans are but sheep:
He were no lion, were not Romans hinds."

    Hello, I am new to theatre groups in Sheffield. Could you tell me how often you will be rehearsing this play each week? And for how many weeks prior to the performance? Thank you! Keegan Greenwood

    1. We rehearse on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Sunday mornings. You don't necessarily have to come to every rehearsal, just the ones for those scenes your character's in. Rehearsals start w/c 11th November for a performance at the beginning of February.

    1. They are open auditions, so a small group will be given short scene to perform in front of anyone else - you get a little time to practice. We generally do this three times, swapping people into different character roles. We're not expecting acting perfection, we just want to see what you can do. It's not very pressured, you just need the courage to stand up in front of everyone else. I know it's daunting walking into a room with people you don't know, but we're very friendly. I hope to see you next week.

  4. Hi there, many thanks for all your correspondence from the Company so far as I too am interested in getting back into theater after a while away. I was sorry to miss HP Lovecraft as I love his work and I am gutted that I will be away for the Julius Ceaser play as its my favorite Shakespeare. However I would love to audition for The Comedy of Errors, another favorite. Thanks again for the opportunity to be part of the company and I hope to meet you all soon. Kind regards, Simon

    I will be coming to the audition on the 12th but have a work meeting that I cannot avoid so will not be able to get to the drama studio until about 8:00. So hopefully I will be able to get in if I don't have the door code.

    Kind regards
