Acting for KDC is open to anyone, irrespective of age and experience. Some of our members have had a formal dramatic training while others may never have been on stage before. Most often our members have acted at school or university before coming to London, starting work and finding that they aren’t performing any more and want to do something about it. That’s where we can help.
Every play has a week’s run, from Tuesday to Saturday night and (depending on venue) a matinee on Saturday afternoon.
Auditions take place on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings after the Newcomers meeting. Keep an eye on the Auditions page for more details. Directors will normally outline the content of their auditions at the Newcomers meeting, but typically we do not require audition pieces. Auditions are free to attend.
Callbacks are held on the Saturday at the end of the audition week. The director will notify you if you are required for a callback, but if they loved you first time round that may not be necessary.
If you are cast, then a subs fee of £70/£35 concessions is payable at the first rehearsal. This is the only charge that KDC makes on its members.
We have 3 rehearsal slots per week but obviously you may not be called for every night. These are held at various central locations in London.
On Mondays and Wednesdays we rehearse from 7:00pm to 9:30pm and on Sundays we rehearse either from 1:00pm to 5:00pm or from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.
