Roles available, in order of appearance, are as follows:

Eleanor Vance
Lonely, isolated family caretaker who is unhappy in life. Often escapes reality by retreating into her mind and constructing fantasies.

Mrs. Dudley
Hill House cook and wife of the property caretaker who is often silent and sullen, but also quite rigid and strict about rules in place.

Theodora

Independent, curious, quick-witted, strong-headed and queer, who at times can become cold, mean and spiteful. 

Dr. Montague

Vain and science focused with an intense interest in the analysis of supernatural manifestations. Considers self careful, conscientious, and of above average intelligence who craves respect and fame for academic endeavours.

Luke Sanderson

Future heir of Hill House who is well-educated and flirtatious. Known to be a liar and thief, but also selfish, lazy and uses humour to casually insult others.

Mrs. Montague

Overbearing, demanding, and condescending paranormal investigator (and wife to Dr. Montague). Often grating to others and vicious even in her compliments, strongly believes in offering love and sympathy to the spirits she communicates with.

Arthur Parker 

Spews toxic masculine ideals, though obedient and agreeable in service of Mrs. Montague. Speaks in short, opinionated clips and becomes flustered by female attention.

All who are over the age of 18 are welcome to audition, whether you've worked with us before or are a newcomer. No prior preparation is necessary and the auditions will be workshop style. You only need to attend one audition, but please try to also keep yourself free for callbacks, if possible.

Callbacks are an opportunity for our directors to have another look at certain characters and test stage chemistry between actors suitable for those roles. Being called back does not guarantee a part. Equally, if you are not called back, it doesn't mean you're out of the running for getting cast. Everyone who attends auditions will have an opportunity to get cast.
