OUR NEXT READ-THROUGH 2017-08-17T14:53:29+00:00

RolePlay, by Alan Ayckbourn

There will be a casting read-through of Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious comedy Roleplay on Sunday, 3 September, at 7pm in the theatre bar.

We join Justin and Julie-Ann, anxiously awaiting the arrival of their parents who will be meeting each other for the first time over dinner – Justin’s posh, alcoholic mother from Surrey and Julie-Ann’s bigoted father and prim mother from ‘up north’. Their anxiety is made worse because they plan to use the occasion to announce their engagement. Nothing must go wrong for the hyper-tense, Julie-Ann.

Into their world drops lap-dancer, Paige-Petite, quite literally from the balcony above, soon followed by the dense, gun-toting ‘minder’, employed by her violent boyfriend to keep an eye on her.

Plenty of scope for comedy here then as there follows the ‘vintage Ayckbourn territory of a dinner party from hell’.

Director Ray Riches is looking for a couple in their twenties/early thirties, the three parents in their forties-fifties, and a minder of a similar age.

It can’t help but be a lot of fun!

If you can’t attend the rehearsal but would like to know more you can contact Ray on or on 01422 843907.

We welcome new members

New membership is the lifeblood of any theatre, which is why Hebden Bridge Little Theatre holds OPEN CASTINGS at the read-throughs for all of our plays. Read-throughs are a great way of getting to know the theatre. They’re fun and informal, because we know it can take a lot of nerve to join a new group of people.
It’s also a great way of dipping your toe in the water, and try out a bit of acting to see if you enjoy it. Maybe you want to work back stage or front-of-house, but whatever the reason, it’s how most of our members started.

So why not drop in and give it a try? And if you’re an old hand, why not get back into the habit?

Simply come to the theatre on the date above, pick up a Membership Application form at the theatre, or email our Membership Secretary, Gilly Walker at enclosing your name, address and telephone number. We’d like to see you!
