Director Paul Allum says:

It is beneficial to attend one or both read-throughs to get a feel for the play and characters, although not necessarily essential. Please make sure you are available for the whole Audition day. If you are unable to make this or need to attend at a specific time, please let us know ASAP. Whilst it will not count against you, learning the extracts ahead of Auditions will help us judge your comedic skill. Also whilst accents can be worked on (we have six months) we are looking for at least some effort in speaking with the appropriate dialect... There are 33 individual parts and we’re aiming for a cast of around twenty. Those not in lead parts are likely to be playing 2 – 4 characters throughout the production and there are plenty of lines (and comedy moments) to go around. I encourage you to read the original novel or listen to the audio book version. There is also an animated film adaptation (available on YouTube) which sticks fairly closely to the novel.

A full Audition Timetable will be e-mailed by Thursday October 29th. However, if you have any further questions, e-mail me at secretary@dosoc.co.uk.

I'm tremendously grateful to Terry for the chances he gave me, for the opportunity he gave me to change my life in ways I couldn't possibly imagine. – Stephen Briggs

Here be a wonderful video of Mr Briggs at Sir Terry's home, talking about their 25-year collaboration and how it changed his world:
