read through will be held Monday 29th June at 7.30pm, with auditions on Wednesday 1st July at 7.30pm, both at The Wick Lodge, Jaywick Lane, Clacton, in the Function Room (entrance through conservatory).

This is a traditional murder mystery, possibly Christie's most famous one after 'The Mousetrap'. We think it will be a rewarding production and one our audiences will enjoy. There are parts for all ages, large or small, depending on when/if your character gets bumped off!
Synopsis of the plot: Eight guests, who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess, are trapped on an island with the two house servants. A mysterious voice accuses each of having got away with murder. Then one drops dead, poisoned! Based on a nursery rhyme of ten little soldiers, this means one down and nine to go!
Cast - with approximate ages:
Mr & Mrs Rogers - the house servants - any age
Fred Narracot - delivery man - any age
Vera Claythorne - secretary - 20s/30s
Philip Lombard - ex -army Captain - 30s/40s
Anthony Marston - rich young man - 20s
William Blore - ex-policeman 40s/50s
General Mackenzie - old retired army officer 60+
Emily Brent - embittered elderly spinster, 50s/60s
Sir Lawrence Wargrave - ex- judge 50s/60s
Dr Armstrong - ex-surgeon 40s - 60s
To find out 'who dunnit' - come to the read-through!

ABSURD PERSON SINGULAR

Anyone interested is invited to a read through at The Mill Arts Centre on Tuesday 23 June 2015, 8pm. Further information is available from director, Brenda Williams – brenda@hazelgold.co.uk or 01295 271345.

Auditions: Thursday 2 July, 8pm
Performance: 21-24 October 2015 at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury


OPEN AUDITIONS – “ABSURD PERSON SINGULAR”

Banbury Cross Players are delighted to announce Open Auditions for their 2015/16 Season opening production of Alan Ayckbourn’s “Absurd Person Singular” on Thursday 2 July, 8pm at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury.

Set in three kitchens over three Christmases, the play follows the fortunes of three wildly incompatible couples charting the relentless rise of the socially aspiring Hopcrofts at the expense of two other couples.

Housing developer Sidney Hopcroft wants to make a good impression on his guests. His wife Jane is more interested in making her kitchen spotless. The party peters out when she gets herself locked out of the house.

Architect Geoffrey Jackson and his pill-popping wife, Eva, aren’t at all prepared. Geoffrey has just told Eva he’s leaving her. Her reaction is to try and kill herself - in five different ways!

At the Victorian home of banker Ronald Brewster-Wright and his alcoholic wife, Marion there’s no party in prospect. Ronald’s bank is failing and he can’t afford to heat the house. Meanwhile, Marion is drunk in the bedroom.

Geoffrey and Eva drop by to commiserate, closely followed by Sidney and Jane who are now successful, dressed to the nines and determined to make the upper-class failures dance to their middle-class tune.

ROLES AVAILABLE :
Sidney & Jane – late 20s/30s
Geoffrey & Eva – 40s
Ronald and Marion – 50s

Auditions will be held on the following dates:
Friday 3rd July at 7pm in Room One
Saturday 4th July at 10am in Room One
Performances: 13th to 21st November 2015
Synopsis:
It is 1860. A young woman becomes governess of two orphans. Removed from the world in an idyll of apparent purity, things darken as the governess perceives, or perhaps merely imagines, that the children’s last governess and her Heathcliff-esque lover have returned from the dead to possess the children. Then a darker fear comes into her mind: what if the children are complicit in their corruption? What if they comprehend the presence of these beckoning ghosts, and welcome them? What do the children know?
This version was written 60 years ago and was made into a film starring Deborah Kerr. Harold Pinter directed a revival on Broadway in 1976. Of the versions that I have read, this seemed to me to be the truest to Henry James’s beautifully ambiguous original story and, in itself, is a gripping read.
The play offers some astonishing opportunities for the whole company. We have to find a way of presenting that most difficult of genres: a ghost story. I’m going to need a strong company of brave people who want to do something different and that company has to include two children – the 'innocents' of the title.
Characters:
The age of each character is fairly immaterial. Mrs Grose has to be older than Miss Giddens. Miles has to be older than Flora, and each of these roles offers a tremendous and exciting challenge for a young performer who is keen to take a major role. Miss Jessel and Quint have to be sensual beings, but at least there are no lines to learn and their presence will not be required at early rehearsals! I will want to cast folk who look right relative to each other and who can sustain these demanding roles.
Mrs Grose – The housekeeper, 40+
Miss Giddens – The governess, 20+ Huge, super role
Flora – Ideally, she should look about 8, but just needs to look angelic and younger than Miles
Miles – Ideally he should be 12, and definitely a boy, not a man.
Quint – The valet. Non-speaking.
Miss Jessel – The former governess, 18+. Non speaking
I would welcome seeing you at one or other of the auditions, and I would also welcome knowing which you were planning to attend. Please note that, if necessary, there will be a recall on Saturday 11th July at 10am in Room 1.
I am aware that, for the children, they are going to need supportive stage parents who understand how the process works and the necessity of rehearsal – probably three times per week. If you are such a parent, and you have a talented child who you are keen to support through the process, please don’t hesitate to ring me to chat the whole thing through.
Although we will have a read through before the summer break, rehearsals will start in earnest, hopefully, at the beginning of September. Since we will necessarily have two children in the cast, I may have to rehearse slightly earlier in the evenings than is usual (hence the early time for auditions), and may well have more rehearsals on Friday/Saturday/Sunday than is comfortable!

Creative team:
I have already been lucky enough to recruit a super creative team in the making and I am delighted to announce these:
Stage Director – Derek Palmer
Stage Design – Eric Farlie
Lighting Designer – Trevor Wallace
Sound and Music – Ian Cullen
Costume – Penny Coyston
Properties – Sheila Grimmant
Production Manager – Sophie Bowman
I still need more offers of help backstage, though. In particular – lighting board operator, prompt and ASMs.
