In April 2017 Edinburgh Music Theatre will be bringing Fiddler on the Roof to the King’s Theatre stage. Rehearsals will start in October, and we have just released details of how you can audition to be in the show.
On the evening of Wednesday 14th September we’ll have a general open evening. If you’re interested in being in the show this is the first date that you should attend to come along, meet the creative team who will be bringing the show to life and hear their vision for the show, and find out what being part of EMT is all about. It’s also a chance to find out more about the format of the auditions to follow, and there may be some work-shopping that night too (details to be confirmed).
Then, on Saturday 17th September it will be general auditions to get into the company. More information will be posted about this when it’s available.
The evening of Wednesday 21st September is reserved for auditions for those people who are interested in securing a principal or named role.
The venue for all these sessions, and for rehearsals, is Barclay Viewforth Church Centre, 1 Wrights Houses, EH10 4HR. You’ll find us on the side of Bruntsfield Links – just look for the big red doors, a short way down from the Golf Tavern.
Please be aware that minimum entry age for the company is 16 and players who are accepted into the company should make sure they have good availability for Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings from October until April for rehearsals. They should also make sure that they are fully available for all evenings of show week and the Saturday preceding it.
