BSC Address

Friday, July 04, 2008


Some actors may wonder why they don't get an audition. It's not always because they weren't picked to be seen. Sometimes going through the CV's we discover someone we know who has submitted themselves for the role and we think would be perfect. They will then be offered the role without that part being auditioned. There's no way around this: it's impossible for us to think about everyone we know each time we come to cast a show and we will often be surprised by submissions from people we are acquainted with. Indeed, I often tell people who have worked for us in the past that they should always submit their CV for a role they are interested in playing because they mustn't assume we will have already considered them when casting.

That said, the BSC probably auditions more actors than most other companies, so the chances of being seen are relatively high.

Next week we start auditions for SKELLIG. It's turning into an extremely exciting project!

Boy, you don't think small. What a wonderful group of plays you are producing. The horrible histories alone would seem to demand the full time of the entire company. How many actors are you employing at any one time? Mind-boggling to think how you manage to juggle everything.

Thanks G! I am just hoping not to drop any balls at the moment!

How many actors? About 50 once all the shows are up and running. Couldn't have a better group of actors this year - it's been a dream team for each show.
