Once cast, in order to reduce the number of weekend rehearsals leading up to the performances there will be two separate workshop days between the auditions and June allowing everyone to come together early as a company and work on characterisation.
Rehearsals weekends start from 1st June to avoid the spring bank holiday and usually run 10-6 Saturday and Sundays. Depending on the role you won't be needed all the time but likely to be needed for some of most weekends. A schedule will be circulated early on for the seven weekends leading to the performance week. It is however essential that all cast are available for the whole of the final weekend (13-14 July) and for 2 dress rehearsals (on the evenings of the 15-16 July).
