With our Autumn Season well under way it’s time to set our eyes to Spring (we are sorry, it’s not even Halloween yet…) but there are 3 weeks up for grabs as part of our first season of 2019 at Barons Court Theatre w/c 18th/25th March and 1st April. There is no set theme to follow for Spring, we just really want to see your passion for your chosen project come through in your pitch.
Please keep the following in mind when making your choice: KDC’s acting demographic is predominantly made up for 20s/30s; we historically have a higher percentage of auditionees that identify as female; we generally look for a minimum cast number of 6 and the Barons Court itself is an intimate space so bear that in mind with regards to tech etc.
Each season is looked at individually so if you don’t think your idea quite fits the above, do still get in touch! Also, obtaining rights can sometimes prove problematic so within your pitch you will be asked for a 2nd choice, please give this some serious thought as you will be asked about it in your pitch interview (but don’t be put off if you don’t have one, we can chat about options should we need to).
Hopefully that doesn’t all sound too scary BUT there’s a handy information sheet and if you’re still unsure, have questions or would like any further information or support in order to complete your pitch, please contact me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Whether you’ve directed for KDC before or would finally like to give it a go, we can’t wait to see what you’ve got up your sleeves!
Come make puppets with us! We will be constructing and playing with puppets made from everyday objects and materials, working out how they move, what personalities they have, what stories we can tell, and how we can alter their design to change their character. We will find out how they can interact with each other and human characters, and how to operate them, to give them life.
The workshop is free and you don’t need any experience! If you have any questions please email email@example.com
Auditions are now complete and we have our new casts for the autumn. We had a fantastic turnout to auditions and it was a shame to have to turn down so many good people. Congratulations to everyone chosen, I look forward to seeing what you have for us…

Thanks to the efforts of Sarah and Will, and those KDC members that approved the required constitution changes, KDC is now officially a registered charity! This is a very positive step for the group, aligning our legal status with what we actually are (“doing good nice things m’kay”), and making our future more secure.
So, welcome to KDC Theatre, registered charity num 1179970!
Autumn auditions are under-way, and we will be announcing our new casts next week.
Auditions for our fantastic autumns season of shows are this week, Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday evenings. You can audition for all the shows in a single evening, and you only need to come to one day. There is no need to prepare anything, you don’t need to pre-register, and they are free.
