THE BOYS:

GARY AGE RANGE: 18-25 VOCAL RANGE: C3 to G4 Leader of the gang of boys, a chauvinistic braggart who thinks he’s God’s gift to women, acts tough but is really a bit of a coward

BRIDGET AGE RANGE: 18-25 VOCAL RANGE: G3 to F5 Natural leader of the girls, thinking she’s a cut above everyone else and quite imposing. Known as ‘Frigid Bridget’.

THE LOTTIE PROJECT - AUDITIONS

READ-THROUGH: Sunday 10th March
AUDITION: Sunday 17th March

Show  dates: Saturday 20th - Sunday 21st July

The Lottie Project - a 'Little Lindleys' production

This beautiful comedy/drama follows that life of Charlie, in her last year of primary school and her single mum Jo. Recently made redundant, Jo must work two jobs and long hours and in the process meets a new man, much to Charlie’s annoyance. The play follows Charlie coming to terms with the change in her life, and how it reflects on her relationships at school and although the target audience is 7-14 I am confident it will be enjoyed by members right across the generations.

Once again, rehearsals will be Sunday afternoons from April onwards with the two principle characters, CHARLIE & JO, needed for the occasional weekday evening. Read Thru: Sunday 10th March, 1pm Auditions: Sunday 17th March, 1pm. There may be call backs for “Charlie” on Sunday 24th March

Frankenstein by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley will be performed at the Playhouse week commencing 21st October.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.

Plenty of roles available for both males and females of all ages with some twists afoot re casting of characters. Excited? Interested?

Then come along to the talk through on Tuesday 26th March at 7:45 and find out all about this innovative and compelling production.
