The Studio Company - A Little Night Music - Audition

The Studio Company - A Little Night Music - Audition

The Studio Company is one of our musical theatre performance groups and is currently auditioning for ‘A Little Night Music' by Stephen Sondheim

Previous productions include ‘Chicago’ 'In the Heights', 'Lend me a Tenor', 'Sweeney Todd', 'Urinetown', 'Into The Woods' , ‘Company', ‘Avenue Q’ and ’The Producers', all of which have played to sold-out audiences and rave reviews.

The group rehearses and performs in prestigious London theatre spaces. Rehearsals take place on Thursday, Friday and Sunday evenings over two months and the company aims to produce shows of the highest calibre possible.

You will work with a Director, a Musical Director and a Choreographer, all with extensive experience in professional theatre, to produce a show you will be incredibly proud of.

The Studio Company is strictly by audition only. Auditions are held to form a new company for every specific production rather than for an ongoing group.

Our Vision for the Show

We are so excited to put on this beautiful show. Based on Ingmar Bergmans' film 'Smiles of a Summer Night', the story interweaves couples, a three-way, two virgins and a family matriarch as they work through differing aspects of love. 

A Little Night Music is an intimate, fun tale of relationships and truly the most perfect show to return to the original roots of the Studio Company. 

Unlike our latest more traditional show settings, we plan to take the audience by the hand (not literally, but almost!) by changing the seating plan and have them onstage as the performance takes place. Our previous Sondheim’ shows have included, Company, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd and Assassins but this will be the first time that we tackle the concept of immersive seating at the amazing Bridewell Theatre.

Accompanied by a small band in a more minimalist setting, with a stripped back vision focused on highlighting the individual and ensemble performance, this show is a thrilling challenge for talented performers and our way of celebrating the works of the late Stephen Sondheim and sharing this wonderful piece with our audience.

Auditions

First-round auditions are £5 with no further charge should you be asked to come back for a recall.

Please book your audition via the 'Booking & Timetable' tab, details will be emailed to you once you have signed up for the audition. You will be asked to prepare a Sondheim piece of your own choice performed along to a backing track or piano. Please upload to our Dropbox by the deadline date of Wednesday 10th August.
