Common Casting and Tech Week!

Hello all! We hope you’re getting excited for another fantastic semester of theater here at the HRDC! It’s been a long, hot summer and we can’t wait to get inside and remember that warm, warm sun as the stage lights burn our faces.

As ever, we’re kicking off the semester with our signature week(s) of frantic festivities.

For our wonderful actors, we have…


All our auditions for all our shows, all in one place. Sign up at to see what you can audition for – whether it’s your first show or you’re a seasoned thespian, we’ll see you there. The dates will be 31st August – 9th September (auditions and callbacks), so break a leg!

And for our incredible tech producers, and everyone interested in what goes on behind the scenes, we have…


Your one stop shop for everything there is to know about what makes a show happen. We have workshops run by staff and students, covering lighting, sound, set and costume design, makeup, stage managing, and more. Whether you’ve worked backstage before, or this is your first foray into the theater, we’ve got something for everyone. The schedule is TBA, so keep an eye out on this page and on the HRDC newsletter (sign up for that HERE)!

We’ll have lots more updates in the coming days and weeks, so stay tuned. We hope you’re as excited as we are for this semester!
