Jenny Wren Productions, in association with Gloucester Cathedral, is auditioning for a community cast for its epic production that will take place in May 2019.
Coram Boy is a gothic drama novel and an amazing piece of historical fiction based in the eighteenth century in both London and Gloucester. Stroud-based Jamila Gavin (who also wrote Jenny Wren's recent show, Love Lies Bleeding, manages to cleverly interweave three strands together to tell a story of love, friendship and betrayal.
Auditions will take place in Gloucester on Saturday 8th December at St Mary de Lode, St Mary's Square, Gloucester, 1 - 2.30pm for children aged 8-18, and in Cheltenham on Sunday 9th December, at St Luke's Church Hall, Cheltenham, 6 - 7.30pm for children aged 8-18 and 7.30 - 9pm for adults.
**** Please note we have had a lot of interest for the children's auditions and we are now particularly looking for adult actors. There are some fantastic parts for both men and women and we would be very interested to hear from you. ****
