There will be a 12 week rehearsal period for this production.
Director, Susan Cameron, will contact all who register with a confirmed audition time.
Chris – 40 – 50yrs. Best friend of Annie and life of the party
Annie – 40 – 50yrs. Best friend of Chris and a little bit reserved – but under the influence of Chris will get up to lots of mischief
Cora – 40 ish. Bit of a joker and must be able to sing well enough to start the show.
Jessie – 50 – 60yrs. Jessie is a teacher. She is pedantic about grammar.
Celia – 35 – 50yrs. Celia likes shopping and is a wee bit out of place in the WI – but is enough of a rebel to fit in.
Ruth – 40 ish. Ruth is always eager to please - but not someone that you can walk all over. Ruth wants more to life.
Marie – 50ish. Marie has built a different ‘Marie’ than what she actually is. She likes to brag about things.
Lady Cravenshire – 60 -70yrs. She is patronizing – but really doesn’t mean to be. Must be over the top. Please note – that this role will be doubled up with the following:
Brenda Hulse: 60 – 70yrs. Brenda is very knowledgeable on Broccoli. The opposite of Lady Cravenshire.
Elaine – 20yrs. Elaine also doesn’t mean to be patronizing – but she is. The world of the WI is very unusual to her.
John: 50yrs ish. Annie’s husband. John is one of life’s genuine nice guys. When he dies – it feels like someone somewhere has turned an important light out.
Rod: 50yrs ish. Chris’s husband. Rod gives as good as he gets. He kind of has to as he is married to Chris.
Lawrence – late 20s. Shy – but not nerdy – there is a quiet wit to Lawrence
Liam – late 20s. Little bit bored with having to direct the photo shoot – would rather be doing bigger and better things. Doesn’t let the boredom show – but you kind of know.
