We are committed to improving diversity in our casting and, unless stated for artistic reasons, we aim to actively adopt an inclusive casting policy.

This is an amateur production. You do not need to be a member of PTC to audition, but actors and crew will need to become members for £25 a year by direct debit, or £30 otherwise. A £10 show fee will also need to be paid by all actors in the production. We encourage you to become a member of PTC anyway, even if not cast.

Our company is run by volunteers and we expect all actors cast in a play to do Front of House at least once a year. Our shows could not go up without our Front of House volunteers.

The play

A fresh, fast-paced, funny new version of a classic story. Friends George, Harris and J are overworked and desperately in need of a holiday. Joined by a dog named Montmorency, they decide to go boating up the Thames from Kingston to Oxford and back again. A series of wonderfully amusing events ensues in the great outdoors. A uniquely theatrical take on a charmingly enduring book.

Audition preparation

An extract of the play will be sent a few days before the audition took at. It doesn’t need to be learnt. Auditions are likely to be outside if the weather is ok. Please email to register your interest in auditioning.
