AUDITIONS – BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE – 6/4 & 6/5 at 7pm
Performance Dates: September 8, 9, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 2017
Take three witches, a bewildered young man and a rather wicked cat. Mix with a good glug of humour, stir in a dollop of desire. The result? A deliciously dark tale of treachery and enchantment that will leave you spellbound … Gillian Holroyd leads a charmed life. And when her eye falls on the man upstairs, she soon has him under her spell. But the family are far from impressed and get down to some hocus pocus of their own. It’s a war of the warlocks with a hapless human playing mortal in the middle. What begins as an amusing game rapidly becomes more devilishly dangerous. Torn between two worlds, Gillian is forced to answer the age-old question – is love always worth the sacrifice?
Needed are three men and two women as follows:
Gillian Holroyd – Late 20’s/Early 30’s. Female Lead. She is described by the author as “small, alert, direct, very attractive”. Gillian is a witch – she should have a commanding presence. She is confident but still has doubts about using her powers.
Shepherd Henderson – 30’s to mid 40’s. Male Lead. He is described by the author as “masculine and attractive”. Shepherd is mortal but the chemistry between him and Gillian should be palpable.
Miss Holroyd (Aunt Queenie) – 50’s/60’s. Supporting Female. She is described by the author as “odd looking, vague, fluttery and eccentric”. Miss Holroyd is also a witch but somewhat bumbling.
Nicky Holroyd – Mid 20’s to Early 30’s – Gillian’s brother. Supporting male. Nicky is described as having “an engaging, impish, and somewhat impertinent personality”. Nicky is a warlock and a prankster. Could also be portrayed as gay.
Sidney Redlitch – 50’s – Supporting male. He is described by the author as being “shambling, messy, and slightly drunk”. Sidney is mortal and a perennial drinker. He is an author writing about witchcraft and somewhat gullible.
