Actors joining the ETTC

We welcome all actors wishing to audition for the ETTC. Here we outline three key-points that are important to us:

  • EXPERIENCE: we love to work with new and emerging talent, but you will need to have had some training and/or appeared on stage in a play (sadly, school performances do not count!)
  • COMMITMENT: acting is not easy – it’s hard and demanding! And rehearsals will be hard and demanding! You will need to be prepared to do your “homework” and join us in our strive for perfection.
  • PASSION: a real deep desire to act!

Naturally, your English must be good, and we have worked with actors from Egypt, Germany, USA, Romania, Austria, Ukraine and India (as well as Poland!).

Still interested? Please read on…

(Please note: we also run Acting Workshops for people passionate about acting but who lack experience/training.)

Step 1

Send us an email and include:

1. An up-to-date headshot. (Only one!)

2. Your CV. (Or include your acting experience within the email.)

Audition / Casting

We arrange auditions throughout the year

so please do contact us to arrange an audition.

Step 2

We will email you 2 documents:

1. A scene called “Say Please“. (You will be given one character to learn.)

2. A monologue.

You will need to learn them both – perfectly – and deliver them at the audition, when we share the date with you.

Step 3

At the audition there will be other people auditioning (or our cast members to help). We will begin with a chat to get to know you a bit more and (hopefully) calm your nerves.

You will start by performing the “Say Please” scene. The first time will be your interpretation of the scene, the second time the director will ask you to try some different interpretations of the scene.

And then you will deliver the monologue.

If we feel you would fit into our theatre company, we will then invite you to a recall. And after the recall we will be able to make our final decision.

So if you’re ready, please email us today!

Think about it...

We look forward to working with actors but would like you to seriously consider whether acting (with us) is what you really (really!) want.

We take our performances very seriously and therefore the work we put into them is of the highest standard. If you do join us we will expect you (as an actor) to:

  • learn your lines before the first rehearsal (we do online read throughs before we meet)
  • research everything connected to the play (we know it’s obvious!)
  • it’s a commitment!

We are truly grateful for all the positive feedback we receive from the audiences, but they only see the final result – the journey we all undertake to get to that point is the really (really) hard part.

If you still wish to join us, are you sure (completely sure!) that you are ready for the hard part…?
