GST invites you to audition for the first of our two open-air summer productions for 2020, The Count of Monte Cristo.

Directed and newly adapted by Owain Rose, the Count of Monte Cristo will be an energetic romp through the classic tale – influenced by Kneehigh Theatre, Ben Elton and Baz Lurhman. The aim will be to create an ensemble of dynamic and creative performers who will multi-role around the main character, Edmond Dantes.

From Napoleon himself to the illustrious Banker No.4 – there will be plenty of roles to go around. Any actor-musicians would be a real benefit to the production as the aim is to utilise the many musical talents of the group to enrich the production.

I will be taking people with availability over everything else, as the whole cast will be needed for almost all the rehearsals – we will be working as a creative ensemble and need as many minds in the room as possible.

We will be rehearsing Tuesday and Thursday evenings (7.30 – 9.30 pm) and Sundays time tbc, starting in early April.

If, due to exceptional circumstances you are unable to attend this audition and wish to audition by video/at another time or you have any questions about the show or this audition notice, please feel free to contact us on countofmontecristo@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk
