AUDITIONS for Studio Theatre Club’s production of Macbeth are taking place today (04).

The amateur theatre club, based at Blackbird Leys Community Centre in Oxford, are holding auditions from 7.30pm to 9pm.

Macbeth, a tragedy written by William Shakespeare, is about the titular character winning a great victory for Duncan, King of Scotland. He has won praise and honours. But an encounter with the supernatural turns his mind along a darker path.

There is no formal audition process, people are expected to take part in open readings of the play at the centre in Blackbird Leys Road.

The director will use that readthrough, and the information from people's 'hint forms', to decide how best to cast the show
