Audition Description

In a similar way to Blood Brothers many of the key roles in Our House need to be played by actors who can convey a sense of youth. These characters start the show as sixteen year old school leavers and by the end are in their early twenties. However, the actual age of the actors can be much older. Providing you can give a performance that makes us believe you are a school leaver and that you relate to the other characters in a way that suggests you are all the same age then your actual age will not be a barrier to these roles.

In addition to the excellent principal roles, one of the great advantages of Our House is that members of the ensemble have so many opportunities to utilize and develop their performance skills - there is plenty of scope for everyone to show what they can do. This means it's a great chance for less experienced performers (or those looking for their first opportunity on stage) to build their confidence.

There are over twenty ensemble characters (a mixture of speaking, singing and non-speaking roles). In theory these can all be played by a small number of people but equally it would work well with a large ensemble. This is definitely not a show that gives anyone much chance to sit around backstage!

There is no need to attend both auditions. Further information about audition format will be provided at the read through and audition prep evenings.

  • This is a large leading role and requires a lot of lead singing. Our House is very definitely Joe's story, or rather stories as early in the show Joe splits into two characters 'God Joe' - the one who made the 'right' choice - and 'Bad Joe - the one who didn't. This role was originally played by one actor, but could be played by two if we think that will work better with the available auditionees. Either way, Joe is at heart an optimistic, energetic 'rough diamond' to whom friends and family are very important but he is also a victim of his own choices.

Her life hasn't been easy, but she's not willing to give up - and won't shy away from a fight for what she believes in. Kath has Irish roots so at least an Irish lilt to her voice would be desirable.

I got a role in an up coming movie It has been a great experience being with Explore Talent. Going in for an audition competing amongst ourselves for role that best fits us leaves you with a knott in your throat when you get a call back or a response telling you that you got a role in the movie. Which makes you know that you did an excellent job at what you went in for. Of corse you go in with butterflies in your stomach and that must be the main obsticle to get through but when you do your best and give it your all nothing can come between the passion one has for acting or doing what they enjoy the most . To say that I got a role in an up coming movie that I got in through Explore Talent, with some assistance of a wonderful person of course!! The service at explore talent is excellent also. Their up to date calander and in general the system they use. Customer service... WOW!!! There is one particular person I would like to personally Thank... Francisco!! You are great !! Wonderful in the position given. I have not met anyone in any other job who has taken care of their customers like you have taken care of me , Thank you so much and GOD BLESS!!
