Casting at the Torch Theatre

 

The Torch Theatre Company produces three to four shows each year and productions are cast by the company’s Artistic Director Peter Doran & any guest directors.

CastingWe don’t generally have a company, or ‘through-cast’ for a season of plays. Productions are normally cast separately, taking account of the specific demands of each role.

We employ actors who are resident all over the U.K and auditions are usually held either in Cardiff, London or here at the Torch.

Casting Do’s and Don’ts

E-mails making specific suggestions for particular roles are helpful. General emails, expressing a wish to work at The Torch are not usually effective.

Letters and hard copies of photographs and CVs are not necessary with emails and attachments being preferable. CDs and show reels are generally not useful.

Please remember

There are a lot of you, and not many of us. We receive hundreds of submissions and invitations to shows each year so it is not possible to file or respond to all of them.

While we try to be helpful and supportive, we cannot always respond to requests for career advice or help with auditions.

All submissions for casting should be made to: peter@torchtheatre.co.uk

Please ensure you have read our policy on casting before making your submission.

 

We are currently receiving submissions for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and our Christmas pantomime Dick Whittington.

Any actor or any agent wanting to make a submission for Chief Bromden in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – we are looking for somebody at least 6ft 4in.
