This show is going to be a lot of fun to put on.  

Bertie Wooster is staging a one-man show about his recent experiences at the country house, Totleigh Towers, but soon discovers he needs help to tell the story. Ably assisted by his valet Jeeves and Aunt Dahlia's butler Seppings, watch as the events of the weekend unfold: Who will end up with the silver cow creamer? Will Madeline and Gussie call off the wedding?? Will Constable Oates find his policeman's helmet???  Come along to find out!

I am looking for 3 actors to enter the harebrained world of Bertie Wooster. 

All roles are open to everyone, regardless of age, gender and/or ethnicity

  • Bertie Wooster
  • Jeeves  – Also plays Sir Watkyn Bassett, Gussie Fink-Nottle, Stiffy Byng, Madeline Bassett
  • Seppings – Also plays Aunt Dahlia, Antique Shop Proprietor, Roderick Spode, Butterfield, Constable Oates

Please email the director, Laura, at [email protected] to register for one of the auditions or if you have any questions.

If you are unable to attend on either of these dates, let her know and she will endeavour to make alternative arrangements.
