Auditions & Opportunities

Tip Top welcomes anyone to try out/audition for parts in any of our productions.

All our auditions are fair; in fact a committee member will normally attend as an independent observer. You don’t have to be a member to audition but you will be required to join if you are successfully cast in a part. Membership details will be available during the audition.

So what are you waiting for? Look at the list below and email the director of any show you are interested in.

Auditions will take place shortly for the pivotal role of Benji.

We are looking for a male aged 9-10 years who can play age 7-8 years. Skills required are acting and some singing, he needs to have a nice clear singing voice. Dance ability optional, not essential. Benji is innocent and sweet, but has a natural cheekiness. Slight build. Needs to be confident with good energy and concentration.

Tip Top Productions has an effective Safeguarding Policy. Parents/guardians will be required to get children to and from the audition, rehearsal and performance venue; casting is subject to the successful application for a performance license issued by the relevant local authority. The application includes the successful appointment of licensed chaperones. Parents/Guardians may also be asked to support.

Based on the Oscar winning movie The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, the musical tells the funny and moving story of three drag performers who set off from Sydney across the Australian desert in a battered old tour bus, christened Priscilla. The show contains over 20 classic disco hits such as I Will Survive and I Love The Nightlife.

Parents or Guardians must be aware of the content of this show prior to the audition and are asked to contact the director for a full explanation of the show's plot, some subjects and very occasional strong language.

This is my Musical

This Is My Musical (TIMM) is returning for 2018 and will be performed at the fabulous Vanbrugh Theatre between 8 and 11 August.

Cast auditions will be held at the Forum Theatre on Sunday 11 March between 10am and 5pm. Registration is from 10 to 10.30am.

Now in its ninth year, TIMM is an ensemble piece and we are looking to bring together a group of performers for what promises to be another wonderful production for Tip Top. Auditionees need to be able to sing and dance but we do recognise that some of the team will be stronger in one discipline. We are not seeking a team of individual performers rather we will be looking to cast a group of people who will work the best together.

The audition will comprise of a movement workshop in the morning followed by a group session with our MD where you will be taught a musical number. Solo vocal auditions will then be after lunch.

For the voice auditions we ask that you prepare two contrasting musical theatre pieces of your choice. Choose something that you think highlights your strengths and personality. You may bring sheet music or provide a backing track on USB, email, CD, phone or any other suitable format. You may only be asked to perform one of or part of your chosen pieces of music.

Age restrictions: We are looking for a cast between the ages of 16 (on 8 August 2018) and playing age of 35. Unfortunately due to dressing room limitations we will not be able to cast anyone under the age of 16 for this production.

To register an interest please contact

We cannot wait to see you in March!
