Who let you in here? Taking Flight Theatre Company present a clowning residency with John Wright

Who let you in here?

Clowning is empowering. Contrary to popular opinion, Clowning isn't about finding a character and it isn't about wit or cleverness either, being a clown is the direct opposite of being a stand up comedian. Clowning was originally a form of street  entertainment.

A Midsummer Night's Dream opens at Gnoll Park

Hi Elise - thanks for getting in touch.

There are no set time slots - but we plan to be there between 2pm and 6pm. We'll pass out the audition scripts when you get there and, once you're ready, we'll get the audition under way. If you let us know if you're in a hurry, we'll move things around a little and get you seen ASAP.

Be great to see you there,

All the best,

Hey Elise - how is everything? Really random but I dont suppose you know any good light-hearted audition pieces (female, 20s, approx 2mins)??? If you can think of anything that might possibly be suitable any help would be AMAZING!!
Hope alls good with you, might see you at the next WHN!
