Casting call: UP Big April Show

Unscripted Players BIG APRIL SHOW Casting Call


Unscripted Players is Bristol Improv Theatre’s amateur theatre company. We’re casting for two improvised shows to be performed on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th April (two evening performances, and a Saturday matinee performance) as part of our BIG APRIL SHOW line up.

Spur of the Moment

An improvised Western adventure with a twist – the townsfolk of Lil’ Clifton are thrown into turmoil when an innovation from the last 100 years (think online dating, fidget spinners, photocopiers) suddenly arrives in town. Directed by James Cottle. We will be casting 5 to 7 people for this show.

Good Morning Bristol

An improvised morning news show, where all the segments are short-form games – think Whose Line meets daytime TV! Directed by Aidan Pope. We will be casting 8 people for this show.

Auditions are to be held at The BIT on Sunday 9th February 2020 and we’re offering two possible session times to audition:

Session One will run from 10.00am to 12.30pm

Session Two will run from 1.00pm to 3.30pm

Audition sessions are capped at 20 places each to allow adequate time for each performer.

Please RSVP to let us know which session you’d prefer to attend: hello@unscriptedplayers.com

You’ll have the opportunity to audition for both shows at either session and each show will have its own cast.

To be eligible to audition, you must be a paid member of the of Unscripted Players before 8th February 2020. You can register or renew your membership via: https://www.unscriptedplayers.com/join-up

The audition will be treated as a workshop with structure offered for character and scene work. Performers are expected to stay for the duration of their audition session and be available for rehearsals on Sundays (11am – 2pm) from the 16th February until the performance dates in April. There will also be a dress rehearsal on the evening of Wednesday 8th April at 6pm.
