Director: definitely maybe productions. Our DEBUT show will be put on at the Headgate Theatre in late April in 2011. We have chosen a comedy by Matthew Lynch called 'A Play On Words'. Below is some key information about the play and the characters.
Synopsis- Clifford Pratt-Shore is directing his masterwork, a play about Wordsworth's life and love. Sadly, his leading man is a yob, his Assistant Director is more of a hindrance and the Vicar uses the Hall as a petty cash ...fund. As for the bit-players Marvin and Benny, how could they be any use to him?
We are holding open auditions on Friday 3rd December at the Colchester Institute Student Union at 6.00pm.
