Auditions for Out of Focus
on Tuesday 3rd & Wednesday 4th August

Performance Dates: Friday 22nd – Saturday 30th October 2021

This will be the first audition in the studio since the pandemic and Maskers want to take precautions to minimise any risks to the health of those auditioning.
We will ask that you don’t attend the audition if the following apply. Please email the production manager and we will endeavour to sort out an alternative Zoom audition:-

  1. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID 19 (fever, continuous cough, loss or change in sense of taste/smell) then please do not attend the studio for auditions.
  2. If you have been advised to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS Covid 19 app then please do not attend the studio for auditions.

We look forward to welcoming you to Maskers Studio and are very excited be be working on this funny play which we think our audiences will enjoy.
See below guidance for audition and rehearsal -

  1. When you arrive you will be asked to remain outside of the building and asked to complete an audition form. If the weather is wet we may make alternative indoor arrangements.
  2. You will be given some pieces from the play to audition with and may practise with others present though we advise you avoid close contact with others as much as possible.
  3. We encourage all those attending to take a lateral flow test prior to attending the studio.
  4. Please sanitise your hands on arrival at the studio.
  5. We encourage people to wear a mask while in the studio building though it may be removed when you are performing your audition.
  6. If you have not had 2 doses of Covid Vaccine or are not happy to disclose your vaccine status to our staff then we may ask you to wear a face covering during the audition. This may also apply for rehearsals if you are cast in the play.
  7. All those cast irrespective of vaccine status will be asked to carry out regular lateral flow tests during rehearsals as a way to keep everyone safe. These are widely available though we may be able to supply some kits if people struggle to obtain them.
If you are unable to attend but would still like to audition please email
Please also email the Productions Director if you would like to assist in any technical or backstage role.
