Casting at English Theatre Frankfurt

Posted 7 September 2011:


The English Theatre Frankfurt is looking for talented boys to play the role of YOUNG TOMMY in our upcoming production, The Who’s Tommy.  In our adaption of the classic musical, Tommy appears as an adult, a young boy (aged 12-14) and a child (aged 7).

We are looking for six performers between 6 and 9 years and six performers between 10 and 15 years. The “young Tommys” have no speaking role and do not need to sing or dance, but should have some stage experience and a desire to act.

For further information about The Who’s Tommy, please visit our website at


Auditions will be held on 17th September 2011 at the English Theatre and. 

Please send your application exclusively via e-mail to

You will then receive an invitation for the auditions; the auditions will take about 20 minutes.

The application should include a picture of your son as well as your address and contact information. We would appreciate also receiving a short description of your son’s stage experience (for example, in school theatre productions).


Rehearsals will take place from 1 to 11 November in Frankfurt, with performances running from 12 November 2011 to 12 February 2012. Each actor will perform only once each week.

During the autumn school holidays (17 to 23 November), two young actors accompanied by one parent each will take part in the production’s London rehearsals, with travel and accommodation costs paid for by the English Theatre.

Our son Thomas auditioned for the role of young Wolfgang in “Cabaret”  and played this role for over four months (2005/2006) . It was a good experience, for all of us.

Pirates of Penzance, a Musical Comedy

Friday February 12th, 5:30 pm
Saturday February 13th, 7:30 pm

sees the presentation of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance by FIS students from grades 9 – 12.  This is true family entertainment – a musical comedy about a bunch of Pirates……or are they? Strange and convenient twists of plot with incredible music (incredible in its challenge for the singers as well as for the beauty of the melodies – I’m sure you’ll know some!), energetic dancing, a live student band, and some 21st century humour make this a super evening for the whole family.

Keep your eyes peeled for one of Gareth Brewster’s amazing posters advertising the show.  It’s a masterpiece!

TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW AT THE BOOK STORE at the Waldlust campus.  5 Euros per ticket.

Get your tickets now!  Two years ago, with the last musical,  all three shows were sold out.  Those who came on Thursday wanted to come again and by Friday lunchtime, every ticket was gone!  Don’t be the one to miss out this time!

Any questions, please email

Hope to see you there.

Our 10th grade son is one of the pirates and we will definitely see one of his performances.
