ABOUT THE SHOW, AND WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR IN OUR CAST

“Dear Edwina” is an unusual musical. It’s a “show within a show” where Edwina’s own life provides the framework for “The Dear Edwina Show”, in which Edwina and her fellow performers share wisdom on everything from trying new foods to making new friends, through clever, catchy and poignant songs.

The directors of “Dear Edwina” are looking for enthusiastic, energetic, and versatile actor/singers who can pull off off not only the everyday boys and girls who are Edwina’s friends but also the somewhat off-beat characters who bring her advice to life through song.

One of the strangest characters in the show is Edwina’s Uncle Vladimir, of the Transylvania Spoonapples, who’s a vampire. Edwina has asked him to come along to help her give advice to someone who has written in with a problem about a party guest who is so horrible that he spoils everyone’s fun. Uncle Vladimir tells his scary story about Frank, the obnoxious boy, in great song called “Frankenguest”.

A request from Ziggy Montego and his steel drum band for advice on saving money brings along Edwina’s cousin Mary Sue Betty Bob, who tells Ziggy and the band, in song, that they should “Put It in the Piggy”. And there are lots more characters and songs that are equally entertaining!


All auditions are by appointment. Please email the theatre at unicorn.theatre@outlook.com to request an audition time.
