AUDITIONS FOR Time and The Conways

directed by Lindsey Allwork

Auditions will be on Tuesday 22nd and Sunday 27th November, 7:30pm, at St Peters Mission, Manor Road.
Please  EMAIL us on enquiries@secondthoughts.org.uk if you are coming, or would like more information.

The production requires up to 8 men and 10 or 11 women – any ages – to play a family and their friends at two different stages in their lives. We are looking for actors who will ‘play’ as a team, develop characters and relationships (on stage!!!), allow themselves to be vulnerable on stage, travel through a range of emotions and, of course have fun! Rehearsals will be on Tuesdays and Sundays.
Rehearsals will start on 6th December, continuing on 13th and 18th December. There will be a production meeting on 23rd December (mince pies guaranteed), and a cast meeting on 27th December (turkey sandwiches a plenty).
