We want to create the best possible conditions for actors to do their very best work. This starts with auditions.

We promise:
To be open to as many people as possible –
If you don’t have an agent or you’re not on Spotlight you can still apply to audition when we’re casting.
We can’t promise to meet everyone, but if we think you’re right for the part, we’ll try our best to see you, regardless of your background/training etc.

To let you know what we’re casting –
We cast on a show by show basis and we’ll publish breakdowns on our website and Facebook for every part we’re casting; we’ll also Tweet about it so everyone knows.

To provide you with the information you need to prepare –
We’ll always let you know in advance who you will be meeting, how the meeting will work, and what we expect you to prepare so there are no surprises for you on the day, and you can concentrate on giving us the best audition you can.

To be pleased to see you –
Everyone in the room wants you to be brilliant and we hugely appreciate the time and effort that’s gone in to preparing for your audition. So we promise to give you a warm welcome.

To always get back to you –
Whatever the result of your audition, we’ll always get back to you. We promise to do so as soon as we possibly can.

MASSIVE thanks to our friends at Paines Plough theatre company for agreeing to let us steal this policy almost wholesale.
