The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, adapted for the stage by Neil Duffield
Director Katherine Barry writes:
This classic children’s story was last seen at the Abbey Theatre in 2004. The performances dates are: 12, 13, 17-20, 22, 23, 27-30 December. Saturdays and Sundays and Bank Holiday Monday at 2.30pm; all other days at 7.30pm.
I will be holding auditions on Thursday 1 October by Zoom at 8.00pm; and on Sunday 4 October at 11.00am and Monday 5 at 8pm at the theatre in the Studio. Please contact me if you are interested: you will need to book a time slot for auditions.
Cast requirements are as follows:
Mary Lennox – a young girl brought up in India but sent to live with her uncle in Yorkshire after an outbreak of cholera
Martha – a young maid
Mrs Medlock – housekeeper to Mr Craven
Dickon – Martha’s younger brother
Colin – Mr Craven’s invalid son
Ben Weatherstaff – a gardener
Mr Craven – Mary’s uncle
Mr Craven and Ben Weatherstaff will be doubled so I need a cast of 6. The playing age for Mary should be 11–13-ish but I will cast Mary, Dickon and Colin from those aged 16 and over (who have done their GCSEs) to avoid the need for chaperones backstage. Martha could be 20s/30s as long as she looks younger and Mr Craven/Ben and Mrs Medlock 40+.
I look forward to seeing you at the auditions.
