SPRING PRODUCTION 2024
Unfortunately Jenny has been unable to cast the male roles in the proposed production of ‘Time and the Conways’. We have therefore had to make a hasty decision to put something on in its place and have chosen ‘CURTAIN UP!’ by Peter Quilter. We set out below details of the auditions and production dates together with the characters.
a comedy by Peter Quilter
directed by Jenny Green
AUDITION DATE: THURSDAY 1 FEBRUARY at 7.45 pm
PERFORMANCE DATES: 25/26/27 APRIL
The play tells the hilarious story of five women who inherit, from Michael, equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and plan to bring it back to life again. They try various fundraising schemes but their most ambitious is to hold a concert featuring local talent and a world-famous star who agrees to appear for no fee! However, their plans go awry and it’s a race to keep their audience from guessing the truth of the matter. This is a fast-paced and very funny comedy with five great roles for women.
THERESA: Michael’s daughter, mid/late 20s.
SHARON: Michael’s personal assistant, gothic punk, 20’s.
PAM: Michael’s ex-wife and mother to Theresa, 50s, stocky.
DOT: Michael’s ex-mother-in-law and mother of Pam, 70s.
JACKIE: Michael’s lover and the woman he left his wife for. Slim, sporty, late 30s.
It has been described as ‘a mad play, full of dynamism, momentum, funny dialogue and great surprises’.
Fingers crossed we can cast this play without too much difficulty and get on with rehearsals!
Please come along and audition if you fancy some fun.
