We are looking for new members to join us for this production, please email sally@forestmusical.co.uk to find out how to get involved. Visit our website to find out more about us www.forestmusical.co.uk and follow us on Twitter @FMTC_tweets and / or find us on Facebook.

Launch: Tuesday 4th November, 8pm
Performance: 26th - 28th March 2015


If you are reading this you are probably interested in our next show, Parade. The launch of our next show is Tuesday 4th November, 8pm at St. Michaels Church, Roding Road, Loughton, Essex.
We are very excited to be presenting Parade at the Kenneth More Theatre 26th - 28th March 2015. This is a show which we are sure will be as great an experience for us as previous shows such as Ragtime, Seussical, Honk! and Hot Mikado.
Parade tells the story of Leo Frank who was charged with and convicted of the murder of Mary Phagan, one of his employees. The show is set in America in 1913 in the South and the ongoing political struggles between the North and the South made Leo Frank, a Brooklyn raised Jew, the perfect scapegoat for all the Souths ills. In real life Leo Frank was posthumously pardoned in 1986. However, the Leo Frank case is still a hotly debated topic with people fiercely divided about what happened. Whether Leo Frank is guilty or not, the musical deals with quite a pivotal moment in history – the American justice system was revisited, the incident prompted a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and the formation of the Jewish Anti-Defamation League. Parade explores racial prejudice and tensions and the impact of media hype; something only too relevant in today’s world.
The early rehearsal schedule is set out below.
We are delighted to welcome back Sally Woodfield as Director and Choreographer and Ben Summers as our Musical Director.
The early rehearsal schedule is as follows:
Nov
4th - Launch
5th - Full Company music
12th - Audition class

Open audition in Watford for Remembrance by Graham Reid - Nov 6 & 11
An absorbing, powerful and touching drama played against the violence in Northern Ireland during the troubles. Remembrance charts the love that develops between a Protestant father and a Catholic mother who meet in the cemetery where their sons are buried, both victims of the violence. Family members burden the courtship with personal bigotry, hatred and finally reconciliation.
Remembrance is about how people on both sides succeed or fail at their lives in the circumstances given them and find the faith to continue.
This play will be directed by one of our most experienced members Frankie Hogan, and she is certainly looking forward to the challenges of this play. The group have hired a professional dialect coach who will attend some rehearsals. The play is set in Northern Ireland.

Roy Gaynor Productions

UK
Bournemouth, Dorset

No Pasarán! & Up the Ressie

Contact:
If either of these shows (or both!) sound right up your street, do get in touch by emailing myself, Natasha Rose or my Co-Producer Roy Gaynor at either:
natasharose.arts@live.co.uk / 07594 218 242
nopasaranmusical@gmail.com / 07971 008 847

Auditions are to take place on Sunday's (16th and 23rd Nov, and 7th Dec) in Bournemouth, and you will need to arrange a time slot with us.

CALL FOR BOURNEMOUTH BASED ACTORS!
This is a call for actors to audition for one of two new musicals being staged in Bournemouth 2015. Roy Gaynor Productions is jumping on the success of last years show 'No Pasarán!' and taking it to new heights as well as producing a new show called 'Up The Ressie'. Rehearsals will take place predominantly from the New Year. Ideally, we are after people with a keen interest in performing arts and musical theatre, can sing well and are looking to get more experience to add to their credits. Take your pick!:

No Pasarán! is about love, friendship and heroism during the Spanish Civil War of 1936 to 39. This new and entirely original musical was performed for the first time around Bournemouth in 2013. No Pasarán! has 38 original songs and other pieces of original music. Our audiences said that they loved the story, the music and our performance and we now want to take this show to a wider audience. We had a brilliant cast last time some of whom are still involved but many of whom have left the area and in some cases left the country so we need new people.
***
We are looking for:
20 Male and Female singer/actors between 18 and 50 (ish)
3 children around 8 to 10 years old - 2 girls and 1 boy, who can also sing and act.
***
--------------------------

Up the Ressie is another entirely new original musical by Roy Gaynor. It is loosely based on the childhood experiences of the writer in 1950’s London. The story revolves around two families; the Connolly's with parents from Ireland and children born in England, and the Fletcher's all born in England. Up the Ressie is a feel good family comedy exploring the pressing issue of cultural conflict within a neighborhood, enlightened with some snap happy songs sure to have your fingers clicking and your feet tapping. The significant role of the children bridges cultural differences and resolves adult troubles... but whats a happy ending without a little trouble of their own to get there?! Roy has written an original story and another 26 super original songs, some earnest or romantic, others funny or just plain silly! Cast members should also have at least basic modern dance skills; that is they should be able to move rhythmically to music.
***
We need to cast:
5 Female and 5 Male adult cast members.
6 boys and 3 girls between 8 and 10 years old,
1 boy and 1 girl of 6 -7 years old
1 young woman of 16-18.

Roger is having trouble getting a team together for the afternoon’s fixture against the British Railways Maintenance Division Yeading East but this proves to be the least of anyone's worries. Bob is having marriage trouble as he is still doing odd jobs for his ex-wife behind his current wife Ginnie's back. Dennis is also having marital trouble, as his wife seems intent on moving house despite the fact they only moved recently. When he finally puts his foot down she sets fire to his new car. Kevin is trying to fight off his over affectionate wife Maggie while at the same time nurse his injured spinning finger and Alex's new girlfriend ends up shutting herself in the toilets having hysterics. Even Roger's seemingly perfect marriage to Miriam hits the skids when she discovers he was playing away from home in more ways than one on a trip to Dorking last year. Just when it seems things can't get any worse for them, it starts to rain.
Love Life, Love Cricket, Love watching them all come crashing down in a hilarious play by Richard Harris.
Director: Stephen Lamyman
Interested people do not need to attend both audition nights, although you are more than welcome to attend both if you wish!
Members and Non-Members welcome to audition
Character List:
Roger: (Male)
Roger is the team captain who seems to enjoy being the leader more than actually playing cricket. Likes to think of himself as a great leader of men and organiser but in reality most of the organising is done by his wife. Outwardly he and Miriam have a perfect marriage but there is in fact very little in the way of affection between the two and when he says I Love You it's usually just to keep her happy and not because he really means it.
Miriam: (Female)
Miriam has put up with Roger's cold and almost uncaring attitude for many years and hides all her frustration behind her beaming smile and sunny personality. Miriam is the real organiser of the team but she lets Roger take all the credit for it as she knows it makes him happy. She becomes increasingly frustrated as the play goes on and finds it more and more difficult to keep it in.
Kevin: (Male)
The closest thing Roger has to a real friend on the team and the demon spin bowler. Married to Maggie whom he adores despite their explosive relationship. He often behaves like a petulant child sulking when things don't go his way and blowing hot and cold with Maggie over her mothering of him.
Maggie: (Female)
Kevin's wife who adores him but often behaves more like his mother than his wife. Like a mother she is very good at dealing with Kevin when he gets in a sulk. Maggie is not a stereotypical woman and is more at home doing DIY than domestic chores.
Bob: (Male)
Bob is married to Ginnie but still spends a lot of time with his ex wife doing odd jobs mainly out of guilt. Bob has a constantly guilty expression and never seems to be able to say not to anyone. Despite his faults Bob is a down to earth sort who has no time for pretentious phonies like Dennis and arrogant show offs like Alex.
Ginnie: (Female)
Bob's long suffering second wife. She arrives unannounced at the match when Bob has left to visit his ex-wife leaving Miriam to try to cover for him. Ginnie's relationship with Roger and Miriam is strained to say the least as Roger was very fond of Bob's ex-wife and Ginnie views Miriam as an interfering busy body who spends too much time worrying about other people's marriages and not paying enough attention to her own declining one. It is Ginnie who first hints to Miriam about Roger's little indiscretion in Dorking.
Dennis: (Male)
Dennis is a carpet salesman who likes to give the impression he is a well-connected self-made man. Dennis also fancies himself as a ladies man but just comes across as a letch. In an effort to get people to like him he gets equipment for the team which he gives them at a reduced price claiming he gets it wholesale when in fact he has paid full price.
Alex: (Male)
Alex is a lawyer who, perhaps for this reason alone, is much disliked by Bob - although in truth, if only out of jealousy, there are plenty of reasons to dislike this character; if his abundant snobbery and good looks aren't enough, he is also by far the best batsman on the team. Perhaps unsurprisingly then, Alex is also the only unmarried male in the play - but makes up for this with nothing less than a pole dancer girlfriend who, in one comic moment in the play, feels the need to lock herself in the toilets due to her treatment by Alex.
Sharon: (Female)
Sharon is Alex's latest girlfriend who like most of the women he tends to attract isn't overly furnished in the brain department. She feels very out of place at the cricket club and the fact that Alex ignores her doesn't make things any better. She ends up locking herself in the toilets and having hysterics.
In addition to the cast, there are also numerous positions available in production and back stage.

It Could Be Any One Of Us by Alan Ayckbourn

Do let us know if you will be coming along by
e-mailing: wayfarersdrama@outlook.com
Or to request more information

Reading/Auditions: Thurs 27th Nov and Fri 28th Nov 7.30pm
Performance dates : Spring 2015


Cast: 3males, 3 females
Synopsis:
A thunderstorm. In a windswept country house a family of failures wrangles over a will: a detective who has never solved a case; a writer, an artist and a composer whose works have never been published, shown or performed, and a dysfunctional teenager. Here are the prime ingredients for a murder mystery, but this diversion is by Alan Ayckbourn and it has a number of surprises. The victim is not who it should be, the murder's identity changes overnight and the thrills are leavened with tongue in cheek humour and ironic comment.
The characters
Mortimer Chalke : A composer; mid-fifties
Jocelyn Polegate: A writer, his sister; late forties
Brinton Chalke: A painter, his brother; early forties
Amy Polegate: Jocelyn's daughter; sixteen
Norris Honeywell: A detective; mid-forties
Wendy Windwood: Mid-thirties
