Our congratulations to the cast of “Wyrd Sisters”, a great mix of youth and experience and probably our largest cast yet with 20 performers playing the multitude of roles.
Its that time of year again! We will be holding an open reading for our Autumn production, Terry Pratchett’s “Wyrd Sisters” adapted by Stephen Briggs. Its a brilliant parody of Macbeth with all of PTerry’s wonderful wordplay and humour. This will be a large cast production with loads of parts for all ages, sizes and sexes!
The reading will take place in the Oakwood Arms next Wednesday August 28th at 8pm. New members are welcome as always!
We’ll have another reading for Wyrd Sisters on Thursday Night at 8pm in the Oakwood Arms. Please let anyone know who might be interested. If we do not have a strong enough cast we’ll look at alternative productions.
There will be an open reading for Stephen Briggs adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s “Wyrd Sisters” in the Oakwood Arms on Wednesday 22nd at 8pm. For those who have not attended a reading before, its a less formal form of audition. We will simply sit and read through the play, asking people to swap parts occasionally just to get some different ideas and options. Its much less intimidating than a formal audition process, and much more social. You can even have a pint!
The play is a comedy riff on the themes in Macbeth, but familiarity with the play is not necessary to enjoy it. Unlike Macbeth, the heroes of the piece are the three Witches, absolutely fabulous roles. In addition we have a Fool, an Evil Duke and Duchess, the Ghost of the Dead King Verence, a Troop of Strolling Players and the true Heir to the Throne. Also there are loads of small roles for guards, demons and peasants! The play can be cast with plenty of doubling, or with a really large cast, all of which will depend on the interest and number of bodies available!
All are welcome, no previous experience necessary!
