About the Plays

Blithe Spirit, a farce by Noël Coward, is a tale of two wives: Charles Condomine’s wives. The situation starts when Charles invites Madame Arcati to conduct a séance at his home as a way to gather material for his next novel, The Unseen. The should-be-joke séance turns real when it summons Condomine’s previous wife, a vivacious and fun soul, who has been dead for five years. Trapped between his two wives, Condomine tries to placate one while holding onto the other. The cast consists of five adult women and two adult men. Appropriate for audiences 11+.

Peppermint Bear and the Two-Headed Dragon is the third installment of the Peppermint Bear series to be produced by Theatre Oxford. It’s a chance for the entire family to celebrate the Christmas holiday–that is if the elves can survive a very hungry two-headed dragon who has just awaken from a 100-year’s sleep! Together Santa and Peppermint Bear save the elves and the Christmas holiday. The cast consists of Santa (baritone), Peppermint Bear (any gender; does not talk/sing), a male/female or gender non-conforming duo for the dragon (tenor & mezzo), and six elves (varied genders, tenor-soprano), and an Elf Ensemble of children.

Theatre Oxford’s Annual Ten-Minute Play Festival features the winner of TO’s International 10-Minute Play Contest. A crowd favorite for 25 years, the festival will honor playwrights, celebrate original works, host workshops, and more! Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on FB or Instagram for updates.

It’s a Musical Revue, and we’ll announce the title once we have finalized licensing. All we can say for now is that it’s about relationships: dating, falling in love, getting married, having children, and managing in-laws! The cast includes two adult men and two adult women. Appropriate for audiences 14+.

About In-Person Auditions

Each director has a different approach to casting. We’ll reveal more as casting dates draw near. In general, we provide sides (select scenes) in advance. If you are uncomfortable with cold readings, you may wish to prepare before arrival; however, no preparation is required.

About Video Auditions

If you cannot make the in-person auditions at the Powerhouse, please create and submit an audition video. If you do not have a scene partner for sides (linked above), then you may record a monolog. You may use your own or one from this monolog list. Then follow the bullet instructions below.

  • Fill out our Audition Form (will link when time draws near).
  • Record a monolog or a scene from the sides provided under “what to prepare.”
  • Provide a link to your audition video at the end of the form.
  • If you have difficulty, send a document version of your audition form and a link to your audition video to
