Great Gatsby Community Cast Audition Notice

The production will be directed by Alexander Wright. Further information on the project will be given when auditions with individuals have been confirmed.


Theatr Clwyd, Clwyd Room – Sunday 26 November 2017, 15.00-17.00

Please contact Melanie Jones ( to confirm your attendance at the audition session. You don’t have to prepare anything: just wear some comfortable clothes and bring some water.

Please note you must be aged 18 or older to be a part of the community cast.


If successful, you will be offered the choice to be double-cast, sharing a role with another performer. This would mean undertaking half the number of performances, which may work better for balancing family/work commitments. The number of rehearsals you’d be required to attend would be roughly the same in either case.

Evenings & weekends, an average of 1-3 rehearsals per week

Technical Rehearsals:
Monday 19 February – Wednesday 21 February 2018

Writer in Residence Scheme

writing-1560276-150x150Part of TYFU | GROW – Theatr Clwyd’s Creative Development Programme

Generously supported by the Friends of Theatr Clwyd and Gladstone’s Library

**Applications open until 28 November 2016**

We are a home for writers in Wales, offering the time and space to write within a community of fellow artists without the pressure of ‘showing’ or producing something. We offer residencies connected to our in-house productions so writers can get to know other artists working here, spend time observing rehearsals and develop ideas in a supportive environment. The Writer in Residence Scheme is generously supported by the Friends of Theatr Clwyd and Gladstone’s Library.

  • The attachment includes:
  • A bursary to cover travel, subsistence and expenses
  • Accommodation at the nearby Gladstone’s Library (a beautiful Grade I listed building at the only Prime Ministerial Library in Britain)
  • Use of our Writers’ Room
  • Optional feedback on any work produced
  • The potential to work with actors on any work produced
  • Talk with the Friends of Theatr Clwyd about your work in progress

This is a wonderful opportunity to spend some time writing and reflecting on your practice, for us to get to know each other and, if it’s helpful, to get feedback on your work. There is no obligation on you to produce anything for us at the end of the attachment and equally no obligation on us to produce the work. Our hope is that these attachments will form the beginning of a relationship with Theatr Clwyd and a network of writers who can call our theatre home.

In 2017, we will be offering four residencies connected to our in-house productions. We are now opening applications for the first two of these attachments.


How to Apply

If you are interested, please send an email giving a sense of what you’d like to work on while you’re here to by 5pm on Monday 28 November 2016. Please also tell us which of the two productions you would be available or prefer to be attached to, and why (details below). We will be selecting two writers from the applications we receive and will notify all applicants in due course. You will receive more information after submitting your application.


Productions and Dates

Skylight by David Hare, directed by Tamara Harvey – Monday 16 January 2016 – Friday 27 January 2016

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, directed by Richard Fitch – Monday 10 April – Sunday 23 April 2016

Please note that this is developmental attachment – we want to develop long term relationships with writers and this is just one of the ways we intend to do that. The attachment is about you, rather than what you write while you are here.
