Next Production - "The Accrington Pals"

29 June - 2 July 2016

WANTED - a budding young actor to play the part of Reggie Boggis in TATS forthcoming production of The Accrington Pals

Reggie is a roguish young lad of fifteen who longs to be among the newly recruited men of the Accrington Pals Batallion. Regularly at odds with his mother, he provides rich comic moments when dodging to avoid her attempts to clip his ear after spending a night out with the lads; before prompting similar amusement upon reciting the final couplet of a ribald rhyme she’s found him teaching smaller children outside the gates of the local junior school. There is too, a poignant and serious side to the role when tragedy later unfolds on the battlefield.

This is a great character part requiring the delivery of some 70 lines spread at intervals through the play and would suit someone aged between Year 8 and 22 keen to break into serious theatre, or simply wanting to hone their stage skills.

Rehearsals at Turvey Village Hall take place on Mondays and Thursdays between 7.30pm and 10pm, with performances running from Wednesday 29th June to Saturday 2nd July 2016. Please note however, that attendance at each rehearsal will not be necessary until two weeks before the show and I will be more than happy to plan rehearsals around availability with anyone interested. You will be guaranteed a very warm welcome. (Ben Lusby - Director)

In their very own version of Whose Line Is It Anyway? The performers from this improvisational group create characters, scenes and songs on the spot, in the style of short-form improvisation games. Topics for the games are based on either audience suggestions or predetermined prompts from the host.

Come along and join in the fun while supporting your local society.

At Turvey Village Hall on Friday 6th May,  7.30pm for 8pm start
Bring your supper, bar available
