Director, Gil Burns, will be holding an audition for the November play, on Saturday 7 September, 7pm, at the theatre.
Bazaar and Rummage, by Sue Townsend, is set in a church hall, somewhere in the UK. It is the funny and moving story of a self-help group of agoraphobic women who decide to break out of their troubled and insular lives, for one day at least, by bravely staging a ‘bazaar and rummage sale’.
Gil is looking for 6 women to play the following parts:
Margaret – a working class ‘vulgarian’ who has been agoraphobic for 15 years
Bell-Bell – an obsessively clean agoraphobic who plays the piano (so a real pianist would be desirable!)
Fliss – a young(ish) trainee social worker
Gwenda – a middle aged volunteer social worker and ex-agoraphobic
Katrina – an agoraphobic, ex-variety ‘songstress’
WPC – a female community police officer, terrified of community policing! (this is a very small role and the character only appears at the end of the play)
For the audition Gil will be asking people to read and perform specific sections of the script for which they will have a short amount of rehearsal time.
