Importance of Being Earnest auditions

A Wilde summer with CADS!

CADS are putting on a production of the Importance of Being Earnest at the end of August and we need YOU!

The Importance of Being Earnest, ‘A Trivial Comedy for Serious People’ was first performed in 1895 and has charmed audiences ever since. On the surface, it is a delightfully frivolous and humorous story of thwarted love and mistaken identity, but underneath there is a wonderfully written satire of Victorian cultural norms and social commentary.

Come along to auditions and join us in breathing life into this gem of a play!

The shows will be performed at the stunning Clifton Club right in the heart of Clifton Village. The luxurious regency décor will undoubtedly enhance the authenticity of the production.

If you are interested please sign up for an audition here. Please note that auditions are open to all, but once you are offered and accept a part you will need to join CADS as a member (£20 annual fee, covers up to 31 December 2024, or £13.30 show fee for one show).

Important dates to consider:

  • 9th and 11th April – auditions (Highbury Vaults, St Michael’s Hill on 9th and Somerset House, Clifton Village on 11th)
  • 15th April – call backs (Clifton Village venue will be given when you are invited for call backs)

If you can’t make those dates please let us know by emailing as we might be able to accommodate you. We will be sending out the audition parts beforehand.
