THE TIME TRAVELLER’S WIFE: THE MUSICAL

TO HOLD AUDITIONS FOR THE ROLE OF YOUNG CLARE

ON MONDAY 25 JULY AT 12NOON

 

AHEAD OF PREMIERE AT STORYHOUSE, CHESTER

FROM 30 SEPTEMBER 2022 FOR TWO-WEEK SEASON

AHEAD OF WEST END TRANSFER

 

The Time Traveller’s Wife: The Musical, a new musical premiering at Storyhouse in Chester from 30 September to 15 October 2022, is holding auditions to find three local children to play the role of Young Clare on Monday 25 July at 12noon.

The auditions will take place at Storyhouse with the aim of giving local children the opportunity to star in a major new musical.

Director Bill Buckhurst has requested that applicants send in a video of themselves singing a verse and a chorus of a pop song they enjoy singing and a short poem or monologue, and to provide some background information on why they want to play the role and what (if any) performance experience they have.

Applicants should send their tapes to kidsttw@gmail.com by Thursday 21 July.

The Time Traveller’s Wife: The Musical is based on the best-selling novel by Audrey Niffenegger and the New Line Cinema film screenplay by Bruce Joel Rubin. The two-week season at Storyhouse will precede a West End transfer, to be announced at a later date.

 

The Time Traveller’s Wife: The Musical weaves a heart-breaking and soaring original musical score by multi Grammy Award-winning composers Joss Stone and Dave Stewart with one of the most beloved novels of the last 50 years. All couples ask how to truly know one another, to trust, to commit, to build a family, to work at something bigger than ourselves.  Not all of us are time travellers.  How do you love across time?

 

Director Bill Buckhurst said “The Time Traveller’s Wife centres around a time-travelling librarian, Henry DeTamble and Clare Abshire, a paper artist. They meet on one of Henry’s time-travelling episodes and later in the story they get married. During the show there are a few scenes where we meet Clare as a ten-year-old and we’re looking for a young, talented actor to play this role. The same actor would also play the role of Alba, who is the daughter of Henry and Clare (also 10 years old).

We’re looking to meet actors between the ages of 11 and 16 for this role. They must have some acting experience, be confident singers and to be able to do a credible standard American accent.”

With a book by Lauren Gunderson, original music and lyrics by Joss Stone and Dave Stewart and additional lyrics by Kait Kerrigan, the production will be directed by Bill Buckhurst and designed by Anna Fleischle, with choreography by Shelley Maxwell, lighting design by Lucy Carter, illusions by Chris Fisher, video design by Andrzej Goulding, sound design by Richard Brooker, musical supervision & arrangement by Nick Finlow and orchestrations by Bryan Crook.  Casting will be by Grindrod Burton Casting.  It will be produced by Colin Ingram for InTheatre Productions, Gavin Kalin Productions, Teresa Tsai and Crossroads Live, by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures.
