We'll be casting for:
The Real Inspector Hound - Tom Stoppard, directed by Adam Thurkettle. United Reformed Church hall. Performance dates 25 to 27 April 2019
Later workshops will be held to cast the following productions...
The Importance of Being Earnest - Oscar Wilde. Directed by Chris Lines. Theatre Royal. Performance dates 5 to 8 June 2019
A Midsummer Night's Dream - William Shakespeare. Directed by Tim Lodge. Abbey Gardens, Bury St Edmunds. 9 - 13 July 2019
See 'Future Production' and 'Workshops' for details of these wonderful plays.
Recruitment workshops are fun and nobody is placed under any pressure but we'd love to get to know you and figure out how best we can give you some of the enjoyment of taking part. We'll be casting the shows listed above right after the workshop.
Of course, if you don't want to act but would like to help in other ways we'll be delighted to meet you.
No experience necessary, total beginners and Oscar winners - all welcome!

LYSISTRATA - THE SEX STRIKE
By Germaine Greer and Phil Willmott after Aristophanes
Unitarian Meeting House, Bury St Edmunds
Thursday 8 to Saturday 10 November
7.30 pm. Saturday matinee 2.30 pm
Athens is in the grip of a futile, destructive war with Sparta and its men are fighting abroad, taken away from their wives and families for long periods of time. The women of Athens have had enough. At dawn, in a men's bathhouse, leading society woman Lysistrata gathers an assembly of Athenian and Spartan women to discuss negotiating a peace treaty. Their tactics are simple; they will refuse their men sex until peace is declared...
Extremely funny adaptation by the controversial feminist with raunchy dialogue and bawdy action, possibly not suitable for children...
