Open auditions at the Octagon Theatre

activ8, the participation team at the Octagon are producing a brand new musical, 'Well Swung', to be premiered in the Theatre at the end of August. The show has roles available for a number of young actors and singers (aged 14 -21) and also members of our community who play a brass instrument (of any age).

Auditions are taking place for Brass musicians on Monday 21st July between 3pm and 6pm and for young actors/singers on Tuesday 22nd between 3pm and 6pm at the Octagon Theatre.

activ8 has teamed up with local musician and studio manager Pete Faint. Pete creates swing music with a surprising twist. This inspiring music was the starting point for the creation of a brand new actor musician show. Caz Brader, the show’s Producer and Head of activ8 said …

“The music Pete creates is unique in it’s potential to appeal to teenagers and the over 60’s alike. It’s fantastic! Music that brings together people from different generations seemed the perfect starting place for a community show. So we commissioned it. We hope to bring together talented people of all ages from across Bolton to perform this show and give them the opportunity to tread the boards at their local Theatre”

To book an audition slot please ring activ8 on 01204 556501. The cast and orchestra must have availability to attend the two week ‘theatre school’ for rehearsals throughout the last two weeks of August.

The show ‘Well Swung’ will be performed at the Octagon Theatre on the 29th and 30th of August.
