Chariots of Fire launch event

Posted on Sep 9, 2018

We are well underway with planning for Chariots of Fire – our Spring 2019 Playhouse production and would like to invite anyone who is interested in getting involved on and off stage to join us for the launch event.   It will be a chance to hear about the show, the staging ideas, how casting will work, the athletics and musical elements – and to ask lots of questions.   The launch event will be 6.30pm to 8pm on Sunday 14th October. We will be in the Oxford Playhouse rehearsal room which is located at HMG in the centre of Oxford: 126 High Street, Oxford, OX1 4DG (these directions might help).   If you are interested in joining the production team there are a wide range of roles to consider – design, wardrobe, props, hair and make up, music, choreography, lighting, sound, stage management and much more.  It is an ambitious project and the more support we have, the better it will be!   If you are interested in auditioning, there will be a chance to look at the list of over 130 characters we will be looking to cast – we are looking for actors, athletes, singers, dancers.  We are ultimately looking for a cast of between 25 and 30 to bring this iconic story to life on stage.   With so many opportunities, it would be great to see as many people as possible there.  If you can’t make it and have questions, please email   For your diary, the audition dates are as follows (we are still confirming locations): First Round auditions Wednesday 24 October 8pm – 10pm Saturday 27 October 11am to 1pm Monday 29 October 7.30pm – 9.30pm Recall audition (by invitation only) Sunday 4 November 6pm to 10pm   Full details will be announced very...
