Glitter & Twisted Theatre Company return to Stroud's Cotswold Playhouse in January 2019 in an exciting co-production with The Cotswold Players. She Loves Me is a romantic 1963 musical with stunning songs by Bock & Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and hilarious book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret).
Set in a 1950s Hungarian parfumerie, the show concerns two co-workers that hate each other, while simultaneously conducting a correspondance love affair. Sub-plots revolve around the others that work in the shop. Performances are between 18 and 28 Jan 2019.
We will be launching the show to potential performers on Sun 1 July at 2pm at the Cotswold Playhouse. Auditions will follow at 2pm on Sun 22 July. Potential performers can meanwhile contact us for details of the audition pieces or to arrange some coaching.
There are parts for seven major principals, aged 18-70+. These must be singer-actors.
There is a part for a (possibly camp) waiter that steals his only scene in a fantastic number.
There are smaller parts for three ladies and one man, including small sung solos.
We also need a small chorus of dancers. Any age.
Every part will be auditioned. All those cast will need to become members of The Cotswold Players. Rehearsals will be on irregular days of the week, either weekends or weekday evenings, according to the availability of our cast, fitting around rehearsals for other local groups as much as possible. We require full commitment during January 2019, and ask that you take no more than two weeks holiday between start of rehearsals in early September, and mid-December.
For more information about roles, audition pieces, or to arrange coaching ahead of an audition, please contact us now.
