Open Auditions for Oh What a Lovely War. Nottingham.

New Street Theatre Company.

We are scouring the county once again to find the most exciting upcoming musical theatre talent.  We are wondering if you or those you know may be among them...
Open auditions are taking place at Lakeside Arts Centre Nottingham to find the cast for our brand new production of Oh What a Lovely War.  The auditions are on Saturday 8th and Saturday 15th March from 12noon - 5pm and are open to everyone over the age of 14.

Please use contact details at the bottom of this page for auditions.

The production is an ideal opportunity for people who are thinking about a career in the performing arts to gain experience of rehearsing with a professional theatre director, designer and musical director and performing at Lakeside with the full support of Lakeside's experienced technical team.

 This is Lakeside and New Street Theatre's fourth musical theatre collaboration. Previous productions include the brilliant, Into The Woods and Little Shop of Horrors a 'fantastic ensemble piece of tremendous discipline and breath-taking quality' and last year's record breaking critical success, Sweeney Todd. Our aim is to create an exciting piece of original theatre and, in doing so, help those involved to develop their confidence, skills, experience and contacts. Young people involved in these two productions have gone on to win places on some of the most prestigious courses including RADA, GSA, Mountview, East15, Rose Bruford, Bristol Old Vic and London School of Musical Theatre. Also this training has lead them to work at theatres including Hull Truck, Nottingham Playhouse and more.

Oh What a Lovely War will be directed by Martin Berry. Martin is currently working on Richard the Third at the Landor in London and on his brand new professional production of The Last Five Years. More locally Martin directed Mod Crop the Musical at Nottingham Theatre Royal and A Christmas Carol and Lysistrata at Lakeside and The Rise and Fall of Little Voice. His West End credits include Bill Kenwright's JosephAnd The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Blood Brothers and Phyllida Lloyd's The Handmaid's Tale with the English National Opera.
