Their lives were worlds apart. Their destiny joined them together.
In 1957 a talented young man by the name of Peter Bloomfield turned his dream of creating a quality theatre company into a reality. With the help of his equally talented wife, Shirley and some passionate friends they created Newcastle Repertory Club. Decades later, now trading as Newcastle Theatre Company, his vision lives on.
It means the world to us that we’re able to share a wide range of productions with our audiences. Equal to that is the experience backstage and pre-production with all of our wonderful members. We strive to create positive experiences for all involved from the first reading to the final ‘curtain’.
As a member of Newcastle Theatre Company you’ll receive notice of upcoming auditions via email. We also post audition information in the blog section of this site and on our Facebook page. You don’t need to be a current member in order to audition. If you’re successful in securing a role in one of our productions we will ask you to join before your first rehearsal.
Here are our top tips for auditioning with us!
