About Us

 

Founded in 2016, Ethereal Theatre Company prides itself on producing high quality productions annually performed both in venue across the UK. Primarily focused upon the stage, Ethereal Theatre produces original and dynamic work, while twisting new concepts onto iconic plays and musicals. We are able to explore and discover a newfound perspective while reinventing the messages and themes of such works for today's contemporary audience. 

With our productions achieving success and a smattering of positive reviews, it is our collective ethos to continue producing theatre which is thought-provoking, imaginative and provides a platform for the next generation of creatives. 

WHAT IS ETHEREAL THEATRE?

A DREAM COLLABORATION

Gaining momentum while at University, Marc Zayat and Dana Hudson already had several successful theatre productions under their belt before joining forces to create Ethereal Theatre. Both with extensive backgrounds in Performing Arts, the two friends chose to establish Ethereal Theatre as a company invested in producing conceptual and original ideas at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Marc and Dana run Ethereal Theatre as a duo, balancing and managing all aspects of the company together.

HOW TO KNOW IF WE ARE CASTING?

The best way of seeing a casting announcement and/or job posting is by following us on social media. We will always announce auditions on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. In the past we have worked with The Stage, backstage.com and Spotlight and we urge you to check for any listings or breakdowns we may have.

 

Top tip: auditions soon follow a post about a new production.

 

Along with the announcement of our latest production, you will find the necessary details needed, in order for you to apply for an audition slot. If you are invited to audition, an email will be sent to you detailing the time, place and what to prepare. The first round of auditions usually consists of presenting the specified audition requirements (i.e a verse and chorus of a song) to our panel. You may also be required to partake in a dance audition which will run as a workshop. Here you will meet the Director, Musical Director and Choreographer for that production. 

If you are invited to attend a recall, the day will run like a workshop. Any additional material to be learned will be taught on the day along with a more intensive dance recall (for musicals) and an acting workshop. After the recall is completed role offers will be sent to successful auditionees. Here at Ethereal Theatre we endeavor to make sure that everyone hears from us regardless of the outcome. We always offer audition feedback to anyone who requests it too, written by the panel.
