The Hired Man community musical at the Lichfield Garrick

The Lichfield Garrick will be following up the success of its 2016 musical The Hired Man with The Dreaming.

The show is a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and will run at the Garrick from July 31 to August 5.

Performers will get the chance to audition between April 5 and 8.

Artistic Director Tim Ford said: “We’re looking for local actors, singers, dancer and musicians to audition.

“Anyone from the age of eight to 80 can audition and actors of all backgrounds, ethnicity and gender are welcome. Stage experience, or experience in performing in musicals, is not necessary.

“We are particularly keen to hear from boys aged 12 to 18 years old with strong singing backgrounds and young men aged 18 to 25 years old for this production.”

Aspiring performers will not be asked to prepare anything for their audition as all the material will be taught on the day.

Tim added: “We are also looking for local people to be a part of our back stage, marketing and creative teams for this production.

“So, if you are a budding stage manager, costume maker, set builder, lighting or sound technician, marketing guru or if you fancy yourself as a director, choreographer or voice coach then we are also keen to hear from you.”

To apply, download an application form from and send completed form to Lichfield Garrick, Castle Dyke, Lichfield, WS13 6HR or email, by March 29.
