Auditions Over… now comes the hard part!

Auditions OverWell a great big thank you to all the very talented people who came along to audition for parts in this years pantomime, "The Wizard of Oz".  We have some really tough choices to make as there are so many who'd be wonderful in the show.  We'll be undergoing our deliberations this week, and hope to let everyone know the casting by this weekend.

Don't worry if you don't get a part - or if you weren't even at the auditions.  We're also needing help backstage and for all the other vital roles in putting together a production.  So if you're handy with a paintbrush, have a flair for design, or can make a nifty costume do let us know as we really need your help too!

Wizard of Oz auditions are here!

Wizard of Oz AuditionsWell whether you were expecting it or not, August has crept right up on us - and you know what that means?  Yes that's right: it's audition time again!  This month marks the start of the work in earnest for this year's panto.

So, have you always wanted to have a go on stage but never dared?  Do you think you have what it takes to "ROAR!" like the lion, "CLANK" like the tin-man or simply "THINK" like the scarecrow?  Or perhaps your renditions of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" mean you'd like to go for the part of Dorothy herself?  And in addition to the usual suspects, there're some other slightly more esoteric characters... including "The King" himself!

Whether you'd like to be a principle role, or you'd prefer just to dabble your toe in being part of the chorus line, why not come along to one of our auditions and try out for a part?  We don't bite, and we'd love to see new people come along.

Audition songs this year are “If I only had a brain” and “Somewhere over the Rainbow”. Excerpts from the script are available to collect from the village hall week beginning 19th August, or you can also just pick one up on the night (you don't have to memorise it!).

Thursday 22nd or Tuesday 27th August
Culter Village Hall

Children aged 10-16: 7pm-8:30pm
Adults & Over 16s: 8:30pm-10pm

If you'd like to put up a poster for the auditions, you can download one here.  We hope to see you one of the audition nights!

Lions, and Tigers, and Bears… Oh My!

Lions and Tigers and BearsWell folks, we haven't been sitting around doing nothing since the end of ’Allo ’Allo - great plans are afoot.  Not least of which is that we've now decided on our Christmas panto for this year:

“The Wizard of Oz”

We've had a fun time having a read-through of different scripts, and we've now selected one that we're sure you'll enjoy - it's got all the old favourites in there, plus one or two surprises, and lots and lots of laughs for young and old alike!  There's a bit of work to do over the summer to get everything in place, but this year's Christmas panto is already shaping up to be a corker - and we have the promise of some pretty amazing special effects…

As ever, auditions for parts will open in August, so watch this space for more news about the show as it comes!
