Nell Gwynn Information and Auditions

TDS are pleased to announce we will be holding auditions for Nell Gwynn, the first play of our 2018 season, directed by Daniel Gillett.

We will be holding an information evening on Tuesday 5th December at 7:30pm at the Passchendaele room at the Town Hall. This will be a joint evening with TMS and their information evening for Funny Girl.

Auditions will be held in the evening, by appointment on the 7th and 8th of March.
In order to prepare for the audition you need to learn the lyrics to a song, so that you can be redirected. You may also be asked to read a short excerpt the play and attempt an English accent.


Nell Gwynn is a parody of Restoration theatre, following the life of Nell Gwynn, a mistress to Charles II and her time as an actress.
