BROS TC is based in South West London, performing a wide range of musicals at Hampton Hill Theatre, Richmond Theatre and the Minack Theatre, Cornwall.

We are an amateur company, but pride ourselves on setting the bar high, not just in terms of our production values, but in how we operate and represent ourselves within the wider theatre industry.

Our May 2021 production is Little Shop of Horrors, which will be rehearsing in South West London, though initially on Zoom, and playing at the open air Minack Theatre in Cornwall. The show was chosen after our planned production of Kipps had to be rescheduled, to enable us to comply with social distancing rules in place at the theatre. We are very much planning for the production to go ahead, pending any future Covid restrictions.

We recognise that this show represents an opportunity to address some of the inclusion and diversity issues that have become apparent within the theatrical world, and more specifically, within amateur theatre. Our approach to casting is always inclusive. However, although we were able to cast many talented performers for this production from within our membership, we feel we should have done more to attract new talent, to create the more diverse company we are seeking going forward. We have therefore taken the decision to reopen the audition process for the roles of Crystal, Chiffon and Ronette, in order to give opportunities to black performers for whom the characters were originally written.

In addition, we are also casting for an Audrey and an ensemble member and we particularly encourage auditions from those who are currently under-represented in the amateur theatre world.

The show is entirely double cast. Those people who have already submitted audition tapes for these roles may be cast and should notify the production team if they no longer wish to be considered.

If you’re interested in joining our family but don’t feel Little Shop is the show for you, we have auditions coming up for two more shows, Ordinary Days and The Addams Family. Please get in touch with us - we’d love to hear from you.
