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
