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 email@example.com or on 01422 843034.
