Playhouse 2015 Stage Experience details announced

Auditions for Edinburgh Playhouse’s Stage Experience production of Into the Woods will take place this coming weekend, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 April 2015.

This year’s Experience features a new production team and has extended its range to cover ages 11 to 24.

CCj2FjaWgAAkNt9wPeter Corry, the singer, producer and director who spent three years performing the role of Inspector Javert in Les Miserables (including during the record-breaking 1993 run at the Playhouse) – will direct the production.

Coming in as musical director will be MD, composer and director Matthew Reeve, who has a whole string of productions under his belt, while last year’s assistant choreographer Louise Ferrier will be returning to lead the choreography.

The open auditions will be over two stages on Saturday 25 April at The Edinburgh Academy Senior School, 54 Henderson Row, EH3 5BL. The 11-16 year-old age group will audition from 10am to 2pm (registration open at 9am), while the 17-24 year-olds will audition from 3pm to finish, with registration from 2pm. Principal call backs will be the following day at the Playhouse.

Into The Woods is based on Grimm’s fairytales and follows the not-so-innocent quest to live ‘happily ever after’. Featuring some of Sondheim’s most famous songs including Giants In The Sky and Children Will Listen.

Picking up a quartet of fairy stories – Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel – the musical twists them all together into a coherent tale.

It was adapted into the recently released Oscar-nominated Disney movie.

There will be up to 130 company members in the production. Rehearsals will take place from July 18 2015, with three performances taking place at the Playhouse on Friday 31 July and Saturday 1 August.
