Our auditions are open to anyone to attend but if successful in being cast you will be expected to join IES in order to perform on the Warehouse Theatre stage.
The Turn of the Screw
adapted by Ken Whitmore from the novel by Henry James. To be directed by Phil Hunt.
Set in 1840, a young governess agrees to look after two orphaned children in Bly, a seemingly idyllic country house. However, shortly after her arrival, she realises that they are not alone; there are others present – the ghosts of Bly’s troubled past. Creepy.
There are great acting opportunities for this small cast as follows:
Flora. Young girl 12yrs but could be played by someone slightly older. (As long as they don't look too old). One of the main characters.
Miles. Boy slightly older than Flora. Another main character.
Mrs Grose. Older lady, the housekeeper. Again one of the main characters.
Miss Grey. 20ish, the governess. A main character
Mr Crimond, Late thirties / early forties. The children's uncle, small part
Peter Quint. Similar age ghost non-speaking. Former handiman
Miss Jessel. Twenties ghost, non-speaking. Former governess.
Auditions: Wednesday, December 13th and Friday, December 15th at 7.30pm at the Theatre
