HELLO DOLLY! 29th May to 1st June, 2013 (Half-term week)

This will be one of our most ambitious shows for some time, and will be rehearsed within a limited time-frame. We will hold auditions for named parts (not chorus), to give everyone a fair opportunity to be involved – auditions will be on Thursday 28th February, at 7.30pm, and rehearsals will commence on Sunday 3rd March. Because of the time-scale, anyone taking part will need to be able to give full commitment and not miss rehearsals (except where one or two people have already said that they had holidays or commitments booked). However, we are planning to break down rehearsals for principals/chorus/specific scenes, so it won’t be a case of everyone needing to be available for 3 nights a week for the whole two and a half months. In general, singing and chorus rehearsals will be on Sundays. One of the biggest challenges will be creating the set and staging – anyone who would like to help with this would be very warmly welcomed to the creative team!
