Auditions for PSYCHOLOGICAL HORROR play at Chesil Theatre, Winchester


Chesil Theatre are holding open auditions on 3 & 4 December 2023 for The Haunting of Hill House, to be performed in April 2024. This is adapted by F Andrew Leslie from the renowned horror novel by Shirley Jackson and to be directed by Jim Glaister.

In the Summer of 1960, a small group of strangers move into Hill House to discover its secrets, but what begins as a curiosity soon devolves into a nightmare.

Director Jim Glaister says: “The Haunting Of Hill House is a supernatural psychological drama, adapted from the Shirley Jackson novel of the same name. There are seven roles available: four principal roles (2 female and 2 male) and three supporting roles (2 female and 1 male).”

An informal reading of the play is being held on Friday 1 December at 7:45pm at the Chesil Theatre. Newcomers are welcome at the reading, and to the auditions on 3 & 4 December. Performances take place on 6 – 13 April 2024. Tickets are now available online.
