Somme Theatre Open Auditions at The Old Vic

The Old Vic Theatre, in partnership with the Imperial War Museum, is inviting local residents to sign up for a role in a brand new play commemorating the 90th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.

The Battle of the Somme was the longest and most costly land battle in British history, fought from 1 July to 18 November 1916.

Somme Theatre will see a community cast exploring the realities of life on the front line, and presenting a nightly show from 15 to 19 November in the Imperial War Museum Londonâs dramatic glass-roofed atrium.

The Old Vic is looking for 85 volunteers to contribute to all aspects of the project: both on and off stage. Lambeth and Southwark residents willing to sign up for the war effort should come to The Old Vic (Stage Door) at 10am on Sunday 1 October for an informal audition.

All ages welcome from 14 yrs upwards. No experience is necessary just lots of enthusiasm.

Somme Theatre has been made possible through an award of £46,100 from The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
