Following the success and London sponsorship of our 2013 production of Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean, several of our members have decided to collaborate on an crowdfunded internet film series based on the unabridged novel by Victor Hugo, in episodes of an hour each to be released for worldwide online viewing.

This is a long term project but we intend to begin filming for Episode 1: Favrolles, telling of how the main character Jean Valjean ended up in prison, by the end of 2014, and again, are seeking a full cast for this production, with most roles open for casting, including for characters not usually seen in stage or feature film dramatisations where the storyline is significantly condensed.

*if you cannot make this date, but wish to make an appointment to be auditioned on an alternative date please contact us, the same rules of auditioning will apply*
Jasmyn House, Midvale Road Paignton Devon TQ4 5BD
SEPT 27TH 2014


In a nutshell, this is a long term crowdfunded internet film series, to be broadcast on Youtube and Vimeo, (and any other film or video sites chosen!) starting shooting by the end of 2014.

Overall, this is a three year project, with filming taking place for each crowdfunded episode, over a few days, after funding has been raised. During filming days, shoots could be an early start to late finish, and for relevant characters also include night-time shoots. A lot of locations will be in and around Devon and Cornwall in the UK, some locations in France, especially for later episodes, will be looked into as well.

This is a pretty different project, as it is based on Victor Hugo's UNABRIDGED novel (this is not the musical or a single feature film!) and we are remaining as faithful to that unabridged novel as is possible.

Open theatre auditions - Brixham, Devon
Wednesday May 15th, 2013

Les Miserables; The Memoirs of Jean Valjean

with the South Devon Players theatre company from Brixham.

Full cast required for this full-length show, this is one of the straight-play adaptations rather than the musical, limited singing but not from the musical.

Auditionees for Little Cosette, Petit Gervais, and Gavroche the urchin, must be accompanied by parents/ legal guardians at auditions and at all rehearsals and shows.

The performances will take place in the first weekend of September 2013. Auditions at 7 for 7.30pm, at Chestnut Heights Community Centre, Brixham, rehearsals taking place from the following Wednesday at the same time (until around 9/ 9.30pm).

Auditions consist of a script reading for roles that you are interested in, and if you are not familiar with the story or background history, we are putting together a reference page you can look at - on our main website.

As well as performers, we are also looking for front of house helpers, and set/ stage hands too, so if you do not feel like performing, there are plenty of other ways to get involved in the show.
Please note that Act 2 of the show is likely to contain strobe or light flashes.

The South Devon Players theatre company are an award-winning, completely non-profit community/ amateur theatre company founded in 2005, based in Brixham and featured on BBC 1 national television in January 2013. We mainly specialise in shows about local history, but sometimes expand to wider historical events (as in the case of this production) as well. We are family friendly, lively and welcoming to all who wish to be involved in theatre at any level. In the past, members have gone on to perform in major feature films, and train at RADA. Our membership ranges from age 10 to 65, and from professional performers to complete beginners, all of whom work as part of a team to create new exciting shows which are then brought to our local community.

Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean will be directed by one of the theatre company’s founders; Miss Laura J (
elven_ranger), who as well as being a professional performer and model in her own right, also holds a Masters degree in teaching performing arts, as well as degrees in film production, and photography – and has performed in another production of Les Miserables in the past, elsewhere. She is accompanied by Mrs Louise German, as assistant director. Louise is the other co-founder of the South Devon Players, who has decades of community and amateur theatre experience in her own right. Both are experienced directors, and looking forward to joining you to create the biggest show the South Devon Players have yet produced.

The Ballad of Resurrection Bob  - open theatre auditions in Brixham

Male and female cast required, ages 16 – 75.

Casting will take place at Chestnut Heights Community Centre, Poplar Close, Brixham, on January 23rd 2013, at 7pm for 7.30 start, at open auditions. Rehearsals commencing every Wednesday evening from thereon, the performances will take place late April/ Early May 2013 around Torbay.

About the show:

In the summer of 2012 The South Devon Players were filmed for a BBC 2 programme, performing a clip of their upcoming 2013 production The Ballad Of Resurrection Bob, the humourous true story of a 19th century smuggler, in the Devon fishing port of  Brixham, where the theatre company is based.

This award-winning non-profit community theatre company primarily specialises in bringing to life the history and legends of the county of Devon, in newly researched and written shows.

In past centuries, smuggling of silks, tobacco and brandy, was rife along the coasts of the Southwest, and the smugglers invented ever more creative, and in some cases very humourous tactics to evade the law.

In the case of “Resurrection” Bob Elliott, he faked his own death in order to transport contraband to Totnes, under the noses of the coastguards, in a very large coffin. Later that night, the story tells, the local coastguards encountered Bob on the highway, and were convinced that they had seen a ghost.

From this escapade, Bob earned his nickname of “Resurrection Bob”.

The Smugglers Hotel, in Brixham town center, is said to have been where Bob lived, at the time of the escapade, and indeed, that is how the hotel earned it’s name

Following on the heels of the BBC broadcast of the show in the winter of 2012/ 13, the Players will be auditioning for a full cast for the stage production. Performers are welcome of all ages 16 to the sky’s the limit, and previous experience is not required (what is required, is commitment and the ability to function in a hard-working friendly team)

No role is paid (no one in the theatre company is paid), as we are a non-profit, voluntary group with a turnover of less than £1,000. However, other "perks" are available free of charge eg: free photoshoot/ video clips/ references!

If you would like more information on becoming involved with us, who we are and what our ethos is, please see the "about us" page on our website. 

Feel free to pass on the casting calls to anyone anywhere who may possibly be interested, but make sure ALL information (including audition details, our website, location etc) is included. Thank you!

Two casting calls for theatre projects (Devon, UK)
elven glare
Sadly, shows arent paid, but as you will see there are other perks. We are an award winning, non-profit community theatre company specialising in shows with a historical theme, based in South West England. If you are interested in either show, you can message me here on Livejournal (I am the secretary for the group), or visit our website and facebook links. People need to be locally based to the shows, so think the South of Devon. 
If you will be on holiday in the area though, and would like to join in, as these are fast-turn-around shows, you are still totally welcome to get involved!

Feel free to share the information, but please include ALL the information if you do. :)

Full open auditions for the show The Barbary Pirates.

A lively, family friendly show, based on true stories. In the 17th and 18th Centuries, the Barbary Pirates raided all along the Devon and Cornwall cost, and even, for a while, had a base on Lundy Island. The raids became so severe that one year, the Brixham fishing fleet refused to put to sea at all, for fear of the pirates. The main interest of the Barbary pirates was in taking people as slaves, and in some cases, those people later bought thier freedom and turned to piracy themselves.

Auditions at: 

Brixham Royal British Legion Club
(Function room)
Bakers Hill

Saturday October 2nd, 2010 at 1.30pm.
