Chichester Players Auditions

A Collection of Plays by Noel Coward

'Tonight at 8.30' by Noel Coward are a collection of one act plays designed as "acting, singing and dancing vehicles" for Coward and Gertrude Lawrence. The styles and subject matter range from broad farce to intricate comedies of manners to melodrama to romance, giving Coward a chance to show off his range as a playwright and actor.

We've chosen 3 of these plays for the Spring production; Star Chamber, Family Album and Still Life (the basis for Brief Encounter). These plays offer a wide range of characters and our aim would be to have a company of actors to play in all 3. We'll then transport our audiences back to 1936 and an enchanting, scintillating evening with Noel Coward!

Auditions will take place on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd November at 7.30pm at Chichester High School in H6. Please meet under the clock outside main reception where you will be shown down to the audition room.
