Twelfth Night – 2020 Production

Production & Audition Information

Rococo Players are pleased to announce details of their next production, Shakespeare’s well-known and well-loved comic masterpiece, “Twelfth Night”.

Written around 1601, the show takes its title from the revelry following the twelfth day of Christmas, bringing together romance and music in a tale full of festivity and folly. The comedy’s themes around the fickleness of love, the arbitrary nature of relationships, and the rethinking of sexuality seem particularly relevant for our day.

Performances will be at De Crypt, Southgate Street, Gloucester the week beginning 26th October, followed by three nights at Chapel Arts, Cheltenham the following week.

Rehearsal dates, venues and days have yet to be finalised, but we hope to hold workshops in June, with more intensive rehearsals starting in August.

Please bring dates of holidays and availability to the auditions.

Auditions will be held on:

  • Thursday 5th March from 7.30pm at Badgeworth Church Hall, GL51 4UW
  • Sunday 8th March from 2.30pm to approx. 6.00pm at Cheltenham Playhouse, GL53 7HG

All interested members of the public are welcome to attend. There is no membership fee for Rococo, but a fee of £40.00 is required to cover costume and production costs.

Audition pieces are attached below, but please come with ideas and enthusiasm and be willing to be re-directed. I am not looking for polished performances but potential and willingness to work together in a company.

I have not specified ages as I will be looking for characters who work well together and compliment each other.

If you are unable to make these dates or require any further information, please contact Rococo Players on trpprod@live.co.uk

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Best wishes,

Antoinette Wilson

Director, Chair Rococo Players
