Torbay Weekly

Following a successful post-pandemic return to the stage with a regional tour of Ben Hur, South Devon Players have announced open auditions for their next show, Beowulf.

Beowulf – directed by South Devon Players’ founder Laura Jury – is based closely on the original 10th century poem set within the 6th century.

Drawing upon Saxon and Norse traditions, the story of Beowulf centres on a powerful warrior of legend, who protects both their clan and other friendly clans from dark ancient creatures.

The drama is a close retelling of the story, made accessible for audiences of all ages, to be performed in venues around South Devon as well as being streamed online worldwide, as an action-packed drama – and all roles are open for casting.

Anyone interested in auditioning should visit the auditions page at and go along to the open auditions at Chestnut Community Centre, 1-3 Poplar Close, Brixham, at 12.30pm for 1pm on Sunday June 19.
