Come and tread the boards with The Norwich Players...

What can you act in? The Maddermarket Theatre produces in-house productions between February and December each year. These span both our main house and studio spaces and include everything from Shakespeare, farce, modern drama and family shows. All our productions hold auditions and these are open to everyone and anyone.

How to find out more: Each production releases a casting call approximately four weeks before holding auditions. This is a breakdown of all the roles on offer, together with information about the play, the production and the audition process. These can be found on the left of this page.

Not sure what auditioning involves? If you're new to auditioning or considering making a return to the stage after some time away, feel free to contact the Director of Productions, Jez Pike to ask for advice or make general enquiries.

What opportunities are coming up? The next auditions will be for the 2019 Season. Check it out below. To find out more about each play, what parts are on offer and when the auditions are...
