Summer season imminent

No sooner have we brought lights down on the Spring Season (massive congratulations to our productions’ cast and crew for their amazing 3 shows), it’s time to kick off our Summer Season, launching on Monday!

No rest, more theatre to create! Join us Monday 15th April at the Hoop & Grapes pub and meet the rest of our merry band, hear from directors and generally have a merry old time.

Carried Away

Want to dip your toe in a nice manageable acting project this Spring?

We’re looking for actors to be in our Full Stack new writing showcase which this year it’s title and theme is: Carried Away.

After over a hundred submissions our team of directors are whittling it down to around fifteen 4-6 minute plays.

By auditioning for Carried Away you get the opportunity to potentially play very different characters, giving yourself an acting challenge and to display your versatility.

It’s also a great way to meet new people or catch up with KDC friends, as our showcase rehearsals are always very sociable and with a large number of people involved, there’s always someone up for a drink!

To find out more about how we audition and what the scripts might be, com along on Monday 15th April, 7pm at the Hoop and Grapes, Farringdon Road.

Auditions this week

The spring season is go! Was great to meet everyone at the launch party, I’ve mostly got over my hangover now. So it’s time to assemble our casts!

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday at 6:40pm at Deptford Lounge. Come any evening you like, and you can audition for all three shows on a single evening. You don’t need to prepare anything, and all the details are in the notices above.

Audition notices for January

Merry Christmas! Our gift to you: KDC will be running our Spring Season cast auditions on evenings of 14, 15 & 16th January. Come to any of the audition evenings, and you can audition for all three (or just one or two) of the shows on the same evening. See below for the details…
