Casting for three digital productions

Leading Edinburgh amateur company Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group has put out a casting call for three digital productions as part of the 2021 Edinburgh Fringe 2021.

Auditions for the productions will take place the week beginning Monday 5 July. Due to the different techniques to be used in the three plays, auditions for each will take place separately.

All three productions will be pre-recorded – either online or in-person on location – and presented on the Fringe Society’s online streaming platform in August.

The plays are Guilty Animals by Dug Campbell, which will be directed by Jenny Tamplin, The Report written and directed by Martin Foreman and Ripe for Improvement, written and directed by Hilary Spiers.
