Doctor Who: Time Fracture performances will be run by a team of 86 people, with 42 of them serving as cast members. They were chosen from more than 5,000 applicants.
“The first day of rehearsals has finally arrived and we’re so excited to bring the story of Doctor Who: Time Fracture to life over the coming weeks,” said director Tom Maller.
“The response to our application process has been overwhelming, as was the talent we met at our carefully managed audition process,” he added.
Doctor Who immersive experience
“We are delighted with our cast who are all ready for an intensive rehearsal period before we finally welcome audiences into Unit HQ from the first preview on May 26.”
The project’s construction is complete, with 17 realistic worlds spread across 2,700 square metres of space for a truly immersive Doctor Who experience.
The production will feature original costumes and props from episodes of Doctor Who, sourced from the BBC’s props store in Cardiff. Other items have been meticulously recreated by leading prop and costume experts.
