Rock of Ages Auditions…

Posted on 6th Apr 2016 by BrassNeck

We are excited to announce details of our upcoming auditions for our May 2017 production of Rock of Ages!

Auditions will be taking place on Sunday 12th June at DW Fitness, Haworth Lane, Yeadon, Leeds, LS19 7EN.  The exact timings of the event will be confirmed once we have a better idea of numbers; people interested in auditioning for a principal role should anticipate being busy most of the day.

The format of the day is again somewhat subject to numbers, but is likely to include a group workshop session followed by separate principal auditions held individually or in small groups.  Please note EVERYONE is expected to participate in the workshop audition even if you are just wanting to be considered for a principal role.  The minimum age for consideration in this production is 17.  The show dates are 16th – 20th May, 2017.

To register your interest in the auditions please complete the online form here.

If you have any questions please feel free to email anneweston@ntlworld.com.
