The Gondaliers

Following our super-successful productions of The Pirates of Penzance in 2014 and The Mikado in 2015, the multi-award-winning team at Torbay Theatre is staging Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers in December 2016.

Auditions will be held on:

  • Sunday 31 July at 2 pm, in the Torbay Community Hall and
  • Monday 1 August at 7.30 pm, in the Gate Theatre, Torbay

The large cast requires FIVE principal males and FOUR principal females who are confident singers and actors, along with another EIGHT minor soloists (four female and four male) who are also members of the chorus.

As well, we require another 10-20 chorus members (both male and female) who are competent singers and/or dancers (not necessarily both!)

Auditions will take a workshop format, so we ask that all auditionees arrive at the start of the session.  Wear comfortable clothes and shoes for movement, and bring an audition song with piano music or an accompaniment track if you wish to be considered as a soloist.  All ages from teens up are welcome!

Rehearsals will be held at the Torbay Community Centre on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9 pm, and on Sundays from 2-5 pm.  These rehearsals will be timetabled around cast availability, and will be organised in groups so that, initially, most cast will only be required at one or two rehearsals a week.

Production dates are from 8 to 18 December (except Monday 12th) with 2 pm matinées on the Sundays, and all other performances at 7.30 pm.
