It’s Sister Act for FCT’s #EdFringe show

Forth Children’s Theatre has announced open auditions for its Edinburgh Fringe 2018 production of Sister Act, which will play the Edinburgh Tabernacle from Friday 3 to Saturday 11 August 2018.

The production of Alan Menken’s smash-hit musical comedy will be directed by Charlie West and auditions are open to anyone aged ten or over and 18 or under at the start of the show week.

Auditions will held on Sunday 22 April 2018, running 10am to 6pm at Inverleith Rugby Club. Morning workshops will be followed by small group auditions in front of the directing team in the afternoon. Confirm audition attendance to fctsisteract@gmail.com.

All material will be learnt in the morning so there will be no need to prepare anything in advance. For casting purposes, filming of auditions may take place on the day, and anyone who has issues with this should highlight it when notifying of attendance.

Based on the 1992 hit film of the same name, Sister Act is written by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner with additional book material by Douglas Carter Beane. It has a different music track to the movie, with original lyrics by Glenn Slater and original music by Alan Menken.

The story follows showgirl Deloris Van Cartier, who witnesses a brutal murder and is put in protective custody in a convent. Disguised as a nun, Deloris clashes with both the highly-strung Mother Superior and the newfound holy lifestyle imposed upon her until she finds her calling.

Tasked with inspiring the choir, Deloris revitalises both the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover and before long, her murderous ex-boyfriend and his gang are in pursuit. Intent on hunting her down, the mob find themselves up against Deloris and her formidable new Sisterhood.

Rehearsals will take place on Fridays, 6 – 9pm, and Sundays, 12 noon – 5pm, at Inverleith Rugby Club with some additional all day rehearsals at the start of the process in order to cover the music.
