When We Are Married

Ray Riches will be auditioning for our June play, When We Are Married, on Sunday 15 March, at 7pm.
In J.B.Priestley’s much loved comedy, the Parkers, the Helliwells and the Soppitts, are highly respected pillars of their community. Married on the same day 25 years earlier, they gather to celebrate this auspicious occasion, only to discover that the vicar wasn’t licensed, and they have been ‘living in sin’ all these years.

Priestley uses this device to expose the hypocrisy, snobbery and moral righteousness of his middle class characters, not to mention the fragile nature of their apparently solid marriages. In the process, he extracts maximum comedy value from the situation.

Ray is looking for a large cast, which includes parts for all ages, with an equal number of great parts for men and women. If you can’t make the read-through, but would like to be considered, give him a ring on: 01422 843907

When We Are Married will be performed 15-20 June.

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 gillywalker22@gmail.com, enclosing your name, address and telephone number. We’d like to see you!
