General Notes on Auditioning for East Lane Theatre Club
East Lane is an amateur club. No payments are made for performing.
If this is your first time at East Lane, please also bring with you details of your past experience, a photo with your Full name, address, phone number and email so we can contact you later.
Auditions are as friendly and informal as possible, you will be asked to read from the provided
audition pieces, either singly or in groups, as well as moving around our stage.
There is no need to learn the pieces provided, and we do not ask for any learnt pieces to be performed.
We do ask that if cast you can make all the rehearsal & performance dates, although it is sometimes possible to accommodate pre arranged holidays. Please bring with you dates you cannot make.
To perform in a production you must be a Full paid up Member, and pay the casting fee £20 on the first rehearsal (which covers your script, tea & coffee etc)
We usually rehearse for 9 weeks, Monday & Thursday from 19.30 to 22.00

George Radfern lives a quiet, uneventful life near London, burdened by sponging relatives and his prospective son-in-law. When George quietly announces he's a leader of a counterfeit ring, the sponges find reasons to leave. His immediate family reacts according to character until it looks as if George has been spoofing them. The ending is one of the most surprising ones ever used in a mystery play.
The cast is as follows: George Radfern a prosperous business man 45/55
Dorothy Radfern his wife 40/50
Elsie Radfern their daughter, sulky 20
Lucy Baxley Dorothy's sister, silly 40
Bernard Baxley her husband, shifty 45
Harold Russ Elsie's boyfriend, sober 25
Joe Fletten a neighbour, slightly common 50
Inspector Stack plain clothes policeman 35/45
Sergeant Morris a policeman 40/50
The ages are not set in stone.
