Deb, Lucinda and I were delighted by both sets of auditions for The Railway Children which were held on the 20th and 23rd November. It was very obvious that people had put a lot of thought and attention into their auditions and the standard of audition caused us much food for thought and discussion.
The standard for Bobbie and Phyllis was exceptionally high and as a result we will be having a double cast for these roles.
After much consideration this is the cast list:
Bobbie: Sophie Carroll( 3 shows) and Ruby Clark
Phyllis: Lauren Easton ( 3 shows) and Erin Watts
Peter: Oscar Easterbrook
Perks: Anton Jungreuthmayer
Mrs. Perks: Julie Dawson
Perks Child: Sasha Kewell
Mother: Alison Gibbs
Mrs Viney: Sue Kennedy
Mr Szezcpansky: Mark Savage
Doctor: Dan Weiss
Old Gentleman: Michael Tackley
Jim: Max Campbell
Ensemble: Laura Beacham,Trevor Clark, Wendy Court, Clare Easterbrook, Chris Peters, Danielle Peters, Skye Simmons, Dave Tinney,
There a number of parts i.e. Father, Cook, Maid, Bystanders, Workers, Superintendent, Voices, runners that will be filled by the Ensemble and these will be allocated once rehearsals start.
