Fiddler auditions…! Everything you need to know!

Fiddler auditions…! Everything you need to know!

EMT are hosting a Fiddler Welcome Night on Wednesday 14th September from 7pm – 10pm at Barclay Church (upper hall).  It will be a chance to meet EMTers and our creative team. There will also be a Fiddler-inspired workshop which will help give you a feel for what it will be like to be part of the company as well as helping to prep you for auditions.  We really hope to see you there!

Auditions will then proceed on Saturday 17th and Wednesday 21st September.  There may also be callbacks on Wednesday 28th. Everything you need to know is below so please read on. Link to audition materials is at the bottom. 

On Saturday 17th September we will hold a workshop from 10am – 11:30am for people interested in an ensemble role, i.e. you wish to be in the company but don’t aspire to a principal or main role. Following the workshop there will be a short individual audition for those prospective ensemble members. Please get in touch with us before the welcome night to be allocated a slot if timing matters to you, otherwise we will asign you a slot for your audition at the welcome night itself. If you plan to audition for ensemble you can also look at the song Tradition, (men – bars 64-79 and 100-116, ladies – bars 82-98 and 119-131D) which you will find in the Music folder in the link below.

If you wish to audition for a principal role, individual audition slots will be run later in the day on Saturday 17th and between 7pm and 8:30pm on Wednesday 21st. Again, if you have an absolute requirement for a specific timeslot, please email us on:, or book your slot when you’re at the welcome night.

You will find a character breakdown and the music/dialogue which is appropriate to each character in a link here

We are looking forward to seeing some new faces and welcoming back some new friends.
