OUR NEXT READ-THROUGH 2017-10-12T18:41:25+00:00

Be My Baby, by Amanda Whittington

There will be a casting read-through of Be My Baby, at the theatre, on Sunday, 29 October, at 7.30pm.

Amanda Whittington’s debut play is being directed by Jenny Gore, who previously directed Ladies’ Day and The Thrill of Love, by the same author.

Set in a mother and baby home in 1964, it follows the fortunes of four young pregnant teenagers whose babies are due to be given up for adoption. Despite this, and the moral censure of an overbearing matron and shamed parents, the girls’ youthful effervescence keeps breaking through as they sing along to the girl groups of the period.

The play requires four girls to play characters aged 17-21, and two women to play the matron and mother.

If you can’t attend the rehearsal but would like to know more you can contact Jenny on or on 01422 843034.

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!
