audition notice - SEE HOW THEY RUN - Hale Centre Theatre - September 30

Hale Centre Theatre will hold auditions for See How They Run, playing December 30, 2017 – February 10, 2018 on September 30th. The show is produced by David and Corrin Dietlein, directed by Cambrian James and casting directors David and Corrin Dietlein. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday evenings and Saturday matinees. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition.

In a hilarious case of mistaken identity, an American actor, an escaped convict, and two extremely punctual vicars find themselves dressed as clergymen dashing about the vicarage. With the arrival of the stately Bishop, one expects the shenanigans to cease - however, the confusion only mounts until the situation finally snowballs into an absolute laugh riot! Gossip, danger and mishap abound in one of the funniest wartime farces of the London stage.

Other Notes
Runtime: Approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. Auditions are by appointment only. Any questions may be emailed to


REVEREND LIONEL TOOP: (25-35) Pleasant, rather handsome, but not “drop dead” gorgeous. Must be physically agile – will need to run, jump, etc. British accent.

PENELOPE TOOP: (20-30) American wife of Reverend Toop. Vivacious, charming, attractive. She lights up a room. Moves, speaks, and reacts quickly.

CORPORAL CLIVE WINTON: (20-35) American. Rather dashing, with a devil-may-care attitude. Also must have agility.

IDA, the MAID: (20-30)  Does not suffer fools lightly but is loyal and playful enough to join in on the schemes. Must have a Cockney accent, although an Irish one could work. Must be strong enough to catch/drag/move Miss Skillon.

MISS SKILLON: (25-40) About the same age as Rev. Lionel Toop or older. Miss Skillon is the town busybody and arbitrator of all that is “correct.” Very, very British. Must be adept at physical comedy, falling, staggering, getting “slapped” etc.

THE INTRUDER: (35-60) Russian (East European) accent. He is a Russian spy and is very mysterious.

THE BISHOP OF LAX: (45-60) British. Imposing, dignified, accustomed to getting his own way. Must be somewhat agile, though not as much as the others.

THE REVEREND ARTHUR HUMPHREY: (40-60) British. A sweet man, he is slightly (and not so slightly) befuddled most of the time.

SERGEANT TOWERS: (25-35) A loud, blustery kind of man, he’s a take charge kinda guy. Must have a Cockney (or Yorkshire) type accent.
