Auditions for hound of the baskervilles

Auditions for Weymouth Drama Club's Covid delayed production of Hound of the Baskervilles will take place at The Warehouse Theatre, 7 Hope street, Weymouth on Wednesday 21 July at 19:45.  The play will be performed at The Pavilion Theatre, Weymouth on the 21st to 23rd October 2021.

The Hound of the Baskervilles is a comedy drama, described in the press as "a wonderful barking spoof".  It is an ensemble piece, with actors playing several roles.  The production requires 6 actors: 18 years+, male or female who are fit and active as it is a physically demanding play.  The audition is open to anyone.  Successful actors will need to join Weymouth Drama Club to be part of the production.  Audition pieces will be available shortly.  These need not be learned but actors are advised to study them prior to the audition.

For further information and copies of audition pieces please contact Richard Lawson, the director, at
