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
