TBC Productions sets audition date

Edinburgh amateur musicals company TBC Productions has announced audition dates for its June 2018 production of Duncan Sheik’s musical version of Spring Awakening.

Following its recent search for a production team, the company has appointed Louise Sables as director, Steven Segaud as musical director and Chanel Turner as choreographer.

Initial auditions to be part of the cast of Spring Awakening will be on Saturday 20 January 2018. Anyone wishing to sign up should email TBCProductions.Info@gmail.com.

The show will take place at The Studio at the Festival Theatre from Wednesday 27 to Saturday 30 June 2018 with a Saturday matinee.

The musical of Spring Awakening is based on the 1891 play by Frank Wedekind. Duncan Sheik’s rock score juxtaposes the 19th century setting and subtext weaved throughout the script. It deals with many issues teenagers currently deal with including depression, anxiety and sexual awakening but within the constraints of the period it was originally written.

The show’s original Broadway production opened in 2006 and starred Glee’s Lea Michele and Frozen’s Jonathan Groff in the lead roles. There have been several amateur productions in Edinburgh of the show in recent years.

MGA had a hugely successful production in June 2015 (★★★★★ Cult classic), with Captivate staging their version at EdFringe 2015 (★★★☆☆ Stirring). Eusog were at the following fringe (★★★★☆ Visceral) and Shoogly Peg in July 2017 (★★★☆☆ Echo chamber).
