Auditions Announced

TAODS is delighted to announce our September production of Growth by Luke Norris.


Growth is a dark comedy about growing up and coming to terms with the pressures of life as a young man in the 21st Century. Tobes is a self absorbed twenty-something who drifts through life in a dead end job at a garden centre, can hardly make a living, and has been dumped (again) by his girlfriend. To make matters worse is the realisation that the lump he has been ignoring on his testicles for the last two years may be about to be the wake up call he wasn't expecting... It's a real ball ache!


This production will be directed by Matt Parker who was most recently at the helm of Neville's Island. He can't wait to get started and is very much looking forward to the first get together.


Growth is often performed by just 3 people. Tobes, who is on stage constantly, and one other male and female playing the characters he interacts with. However, as this is the last chance to perform in the theatre before the temporary closure for building work, there is the potential opportunity for up to 16 other performers to take on smaller roles, of any age and gender. We will also be presenting Growth in the 'round' instead of the main stage

Audition Information

TAODS is proud to hold open auditions for all of our productions and we always look forward to welcoming new and familiar faces.

The open get together for Growth will be held in the Hippodrome Foyer on the 7th June 2024. This is a relaxed evening where you can meet the director, find out more about the play and usually enjoy a relaxed readthrough of the text. The auditions will then follow on the 18th June with times to be confirmed closer to the event. A synopsis of characters will be published here soon.

Everyone is welcome to attend on the evening but if you would like to register your interest on the form opposite it can help us with planning.

We hope to see you there.
