'Dead End' - a zombie apocalypse!





A different kind of art this time - theatre.

Casting is underway for Dead End, an original production for the 2013 Macclesfield Barnaby Festival. The play is set against the backdrop of a UK zombie apocalypse and auditions are being held to find actors aged anywhere between ten and seventy for a variety of roles.

Dead End writer and director Jude D’Souza says: “I’m keen to audition as many people as possible, for parts that include a newsreader, a journalist, a scientist and a teenage survivor. The play is written as a series of monologues but includes some single lines and pre-recorded sequences too, so there is a range of opportunities for actors of all abilities, amateur, professional or complete novice!”

Open auditions for Dead End take place at the Bate Hall Pub on Chestergate in Macclesfield at 2pm on Saturday 2 March and 8pm on Thursday 7 March. Excerpts from the main roles will be available to read at the audition, but participants are welcome to perform a single monologue they have selected themselves.

If you have any queries please contact Jude D’Souza at stressedforsuccess@gmail.com For more information, please visit www.barnabyfestival.org.uk

Dead End will premiere at this year’s Macclesfield Barnaby Festival and is programmed to take place over the Big Weekend 21-23 June 2013.
