Hello my name is Adam and I’ve written a “bloody” musical. The next stage in development is the workshop, and so I’m now looking for performers to help me bring it to life! My musical is about a Vampire – imagine Rocky Horror meets Sweeney Todd and you’re getting close. For this workshop, together we will look at realising and filming a number of scenes, that involve the main characters:

Plus some supporting characters:

*Dancing not essential but ideally all will have strong vocals*

Multiple characters can be played by the same performer so versatility in your performance would be a great asset. This is no ordinary musical as it uses a variety of music styles, from Rock, Pop & Indie to folk & “traditional musical” style music, so a love of all music styles is imperative! The resulting footage will be seen by Top West End movers and shakers so it will be an excellent opportunity for aspiring actors/actresses to showcase themselves.

Auditions will be held at Exeter Phoenix. Please email for more details and to book an audition time.
