For each of our productions, a play reading evening is held some four to five months before the production opens. This is a social evening to learn more about the play and to meet the director and other members of the Miller Centre Theatre Company. It is usually held on a Tuesday evening in the Studio.
Auditions are normally held on a Sunday afternoon in the theatre a few weeks later. The director and members of the production team will be on hand to welcome you and answer any questions you may have.
An Audition Notice is sent to members but is also available for downloading from this site via the link on this page. The Audition Notice contains a synopsis of the play, a description of the characters and relevant dates and contact details. It also contains a list of audition pieces so that any potential cast members can prepare for their audition.
The Studio is located behind the main theatre. Entry to the theatre on Sunday afternoons is via the Stage Door at the back of the theatre. Access to the Studio and Stage Door is via Timber Lane, off Timber Hill Road (click here for map).

Frank is a tutor of English in his fifties whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26 year-old hairdresser who is eager to learn. After weeks of cajoling, Rita slowly wins over the very hesitant Frank with her innate insight and refusal to accept no for an answer. Their relationship as teacher and student blossoms, ultimately giving Frank a new sense of self and Rita the knowledge she so craves. The play became a hit film with Michael Caine and Julie Walters.
