  5. Hi!

    I would like to audition for the pantomime but I have had almost no experience in performance. Is there any point in auditioning?

    Thanks!

  6. Hi I am very keen to come audition for the end of year panto. Is anyone welcome? I was just wondering what days rehearsals are on, should one be cast in the play? Lastly, when will audition pieces be put up on the website?

    Thanks
    Lisa

    • Hey Lisa, oh my gosh, nobody is replying to these blog posts!! I will try to have this rectified!! Anybody is welcome to audition (although unfortunately the panto is already well into rehearsals) – experience is not a prerequisite. We have access to our community recreation hall on Mon and Wed evenings and Sun afternoons which is when we have rehearsals… Please come and meet us or ask further questions right here, I will make sure somebody with knowledge answers you! 🙂 Traci

    • Hello Guyver, we will soon be posting a review of the production (which was a roaring success!) and will include the program which will provide more details on the cast and crew 🙂

  7. Hi I would like to get involved either technical or acting. Please let me know when next meeting/auditions are to be held

    • Hi Bongani – that’s wonderful! Why don’t you come to the auditions for our annual One-Act Play Festival – have a look at our Auditions page for all the details. Whether you want to be on stage or behind the scenes, there’s always a role to fill 🙂 See you soon!

    • Hi Jonas, we are holding four sets of auditions later this month for our annual one-act play festival – see the dates and times at the top of our Auditions page. Every year Franklin Players and other amateur drama societies such as our good friends at EADS put on a festival of about 10 very short plays (only one act each, about half an hour) and it’s the most fun you’re ever going to have!! No experience necessary and no need to prepare anything, just show up and join in the fun 🙂
      Cheers,
      Traci

  8. Dear Franklin Players

    I would love to join as a member. Please indicate whether I would have to complete an application form in order to do so.

    I would also like to participate in the one-act play festival. Is there a possibility of still auditioning, assisting as director or just being a part of the backstage production team?

    Looking forward to your response.

    Kind regards

    Melinda
