CALL FOR AUDITIONS: Fringe Festival 2017

Fringe 2017 Auditions

Men and women of all nationalities are invited to attend auditions for Bangkok Community Theatre’s Fringe Festival: an evening of short plays and scenes, to be performed in English at Creative Industries at M Theatre in May. The festival consists of 6/7 one-act plays/scenes and musical/dance numbers, staged by talented directors and ranging from 10 to 20 minutes long, each with large and small roles.

With an abbreviated rehearsal period and rehearsal schedules limited to once or twice a week, this is the perfect opportunity for every would-be actor. If you are usually too busy, the one-rehearsal-per-week schedule of some of the productions is right for you. If you’ve never acted before, the very supportive audience of BCT members and friends will reduce the butterflies and stress. If you just want to get back on stage, there are some great plays going into production, and one is surely perfect for you!

As always, enthusiasm is much more important than experience, and auditions will be relaxed and informal. Plus, we have been fortunate enough to cast everyone who auditioned for the last Fringe Festivals and will try to do so again this year.

Please come by to learn more and join in the fun. We need you to make it happen! We are also looking for backstage cast and crew, so if you’d like to help out behind the scenes please contact us.

If you’re interested call 084 388 5650, or email elisemel@gmail.com to register.

When: Monday, April 3, 2017, at 7:00 PM
Where: Bistro 33 Sukhumvit Soi 33

We hope to see you there!

Club Night for April 6: Acting on the Fly

Mark your calendars now! The April 6 club night will be run by the ever entertaining and enlightening Cian Green!

Have you ever wondered how actors effortlessly become another person? Have you ever wanted to act but are scared of getting up in front of others? Well this month’s BCT club night will be perfect for you. ‘Acting on the fly’ is meant for beginners that want to act but don’t know where to start. This BCT club night will give you the tips and tricks needed to pick up any script and start thinking about theatre space and moving through it. Learn what to expect from a director and most importantly how to pick up a script and turn words on a page into a fully fleshed character.

The club night is open for beginners that want a good grounding and any experienced actors that want a fun refresher. It is tied together with theatre games, improvisation activities and script work to give you an excellent grounding in all things acting.

Check our Facebook page, and stay tuned for more details. It’ll be a blast as always!

The Vagina Monologues (2017): It’s a Wrap!
