Script Details

Please read a portion of the script below for auditions.  
(British man or woman)
"Traditional afternoon tea dates back
to Victorian England, when it was
decided that the wait between lunch
and dinner was too long...It really
is, isn't it?"

(Following the narration, a tea cup slides across the table,
followed by a Victorian silhouette in a gilded picture
A clock slides into frame and ticks slowly.)

"Ever since then, the ritual of the
afternoon tea has stayed pretty much
the same: You have your teas, savory
foods like cucumber sandwiches,
various sweets and pastries, scones
with jam, butter, and marmalade, and
of course some refreshing
champagne to complement all that
deliciousness with!"

(Our Afternoon Tea set–including champagne–builds in one item
at a time until we are left to observe the full tablescape.)

"Nowadays, afternoon tea serves as an
ideal way to celebrate life's
milestones, indulge in a luxurious
treat, or simply take a break from
that busy schedule to enjoy time
with friends. After all, this isn't
your grandmother's tea."

"To begin your afternoon properly,
pair your champagne
with a scrumptious array of tea
sandwiches like marinated cucumber,
creamy egg and watercress, salmon
and herbed cream cheese with lemon,
or chicken and almond."

(A champagne bottle is flanked by flutes that magically fill.
Tea sandwiches appear before our eyes and fill up the first
level of the three-tiered rack.)

"Next, enjoy some palate cleansing
Earl Grey, white, or black tea."

(Various teas appear.)

"Complement that with mini fruit
tartlets and scones covered in jam
or clotted cream."

(Pastries spiral out and fill in the rack's second level.)

"Rosé champagne pairs
exquisitely with macaroons. Rose and
cream, fig and cream, and raspberry
and cream macaroons are simply

(A bottle of Rosé appears and is flanked by a series of
colorful macaroons.)

"For a smashing finish, complete your
afternoon with some red fruit or
rooibos tea."

"Whether you're going for a casual
commemoration or an elegant soirée,
Afternoon Tea is the
perfect way to celebrate."
