Auditions dates 11, 14 & 15 September
Performance dates March 24 - 27 at The Electric Theatre,Guildford


Jessica Swale's play opened at Shakespeare's Globe theatre in August 2013. She chose as her theme for this, her first play, a cracking subject: the battle fought at Girton College, Cambridge, in 1896 to earn women the right to graduate.The Girton girls study ferociously but when the men graduate they leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural educated woman. The play follows 4 of them over one tumultuous academic year with its distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide and the strength of the opposition who will do anything to stop them
'Blue Stockings' offers a range of exciting roles ( 8f and 11m) with age ranges from 20 - 50+ for a minimum company of 12 actors.

Charity Valentine is the eternal optimist. While working at the seedy Fan-Dango ballroom, she is often taken advantage of and continually experiences bad relationships. Finally, she seems to have met a decent fellow in Oscar. Trying to hide her true profession, she lies to him and tells her that she works in a bank. Soon, Oscar asks Charity to marry him. Unfortunately, Oscar discovers Charity's real profession and backs out of the marriage. Nevertheless, Charity continues to remain hopeful that good things will happen in her life.

If you are unable to attend this date and would like to considered, please contact for an alternative auditions date to be arranged.
southdevonplayers@gmail.com

Open auditions, talking place on Sunday Sept 14th, at 1pm

These are panto auditions, for a panto with a difference. This show remains a family-friendly production as with all our shows, but combines traditional panto, with the glamour of a Vegas-style show, to create an all new type of show, based on the legend of the Mexican bandit, Zorro.
Auditions are open to all, regardless of age and experience, what we do require is that you are reliable, a good timekeeper for rehearsals.
Unusually for this show, we are looking for performers aged 7 and upwards for the childrens chorus, as opposed to simply adults, for dancing and singing. All children must be accompanied at rehearsals and shows by a parent or legal guardian. (free coffee is available, or you might consider being in the show yourself too!)
Actors - a variety of roles are required, from leads to chorus. Some of the principal actors will also be required to sing and dance.
Singers- we are looking for solo and chorus singers.
Dancers- we are looking for dancers, or people willing to dance. You will need to be able to learn a variety of choreography, either solo or ensemble.
Rehearsals run on Sunday afternoons 1 - 4pm, and Wednesdays 7 - 9.30pm. If you need extra help with singing or dancing, extra rehearsals may be arranged for those involved in a specific scene or act.
We do not charge a joining fee or an audition fee. We do ask that each member contributes £1 per rehearsal, (children 50p) which goes directly into paying for the rent of our rehearsal hall. Free teas, coffees, juice and biscuits are provided for the use of all.

The Stepping Out auditions will be Sunday 14th September 2pm at Woodford Church annexe. Sue Mooney will be directing and she will issue a character breakdown very shortly so watch this space!
Stepping Out is a lovely, award winning comedy by Richard Harris, and it introduces us to the ever patient dance teacher, Mavis and her eclectic bunch of eight pupils made up of seven ladies and one man. Over a period of several months the play follows the group’s progress along with Mavis and the redoubtable Mrs Fraser on the piano in not only the world of tap dancing classes but in the stories that unfold about each of the very different characters.

Perfs: April 18 - 25 , 2015


Les Smith's play is the moving true story of Pte. James Smith who was Court Martialled and found guilty of desertion in Flanders in WW1 in September 1917 and sentenced to death, to be shot at dawn. The play requires a number of young men in their late teens or twenties and some older man as senior officers. Set in the trenches the play shows the events of the Court Martial and Smith's last night with his mates as he awaits the execution. He also has memories of his girlfriend at home, Lizzie a hospital nurse who 'appears' to him in his cell to reminisce of their courtship. The main characters need Lancashire and/or Liverpool/Irish accents. The junior officers are ex-Public School
The 'execution party' should consist of 4 or 6 young soldiers who are 'extras' without lines and appear briefly.

Borderline

Participation space at Quad, Derby

Play/short film about mental health

Contact:
Sarah Eley sarah@borderlineart.co.uk


23rd August

We are creating a short film about a girl with Borderline Personality Disorder (a mental health condition). This is being put on by ‘The Raving Mad Theatre Company’, which is the theatre strand of Borderline Arts (a new arts and mental health charity based in Derby). Borderline uses the arts to raise awareness and reduce stigma surrounding Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). There are many costs arising from the negative attitudes attached to mental illness, and much to be gained from breaking it down! Stigma is a difficult thing for anyone to experience, but for those with BPD and other mental health issues, the results can be much more devastating. Borderline Arts is linked with the ‘Time to Talk’ campaign, and together we seek to play a part in eliminating the shame associated with mental health issues.
We are looking for:
- Actors (speaking parts)
- Extras
- An additional co-director
See posters about each of the four roles, that each contain a little information about the piece. We are looking for a wide variety of ages, any height/build, but mainly mainstream/middle class sort of appearance. The scenes will be filmed in various locations across Derby. Times will be set according to the availability of the actors in that scene. We are beginning filming in September. We are asking those interested to send their CV and a covering letter explaining why they are interested in being involved in this piece to. These can be sent to: admin@borderlineart.co.uk
There are two audition workshops.
- One for dark surreal characters and larger than life characters at 1-2pm.
- One for naturalistic characters (e.g. those with BPD, friends, family, healthcare professionals etc) at 3-4pm.
Both auditions will be on 23rd August in the Participation space at Quad, Derby. Neither auditions are for a specific character, but rather to get a feel of who might be suited to which parts. Feel free to pass this information to anyone you think might be interested, and please me me know if you would like to know more.
Many Thanks,
Sarah Eley
Borderline Founder

The auditions will take place at the Lavant Memorial Hall from 7-8.30pm. We positively encourage and welcome people of ALL ages to audition for all parts.
Characters
Danny is the leader of the T-Birds. He is well-built, good-looking, strong and confident, with an air of cool easy-going charm.
Sandy is Danny's love interest. She is sweet, wholesome, naïve and cute
The Pink Ladies
This is the club-jacketed, gum-chewing, hip-swinging girls' gang who hang around with the T-Birds.
Rizzo is the leader of the Pink Ladies. Rizzo, a thin Italian with unconventional good looks, is tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable.
Frenchy is a dreamer - good-natured but dumb. She is heavily made up, fussy about her appearance, particularly her hair. She can't wait to finish high school so she can be a beautician.
Marty is the 'beauty' of the Pink Ladies. She is pretty and looks older than the other girls, but betrays her real age when she opens her mouth. Marty tries to act sophisticated.
Jan is a chubby, compulsive eater. She is loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with the boys.
The T-Birds
A super-cool, DA-haired, hard-looking group of high school wheeler-dealers... or so they think.
Kenickie is second in command of the T-Birds. He is tough-looking, tattooed, surly and avoids any show of softness. He has an offbeat sense of humour.
Doody is the youngest of the guys. He is small, boyish and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude towards the other guys. Doody also plays the guitar.
Roger is the anything-for-a-laugh stocky type of boy. A clown who enjoys winding people up, he is full of mischief and is always dreaming up half-baked schemes and ideas.
Sonny is an Italian-looking guy, with shiny black hair and dark, oily skin. He is a braggart and wheeler-dealer who thinks he's a real lady-killer.
Teen Angel is a good-looking, falsetto-voiced, Fabian lookalike. He is a singer who would have caused girls to scream and riot back in 1958.
Vince Fontaine is a typical 'teen audience' disc jockey, who is slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran 'Greaser'.
Eugene is the class valedictorian. He is physically awkward, with weak eyes and a high-pitched voice. He's a typical 'apple-polisher' - both smug and pompous, but gullible.
Patty is a typical cheerleader at a middle-class American public high school. She is an attractive, athletic, sure-of-herself type of girl who can be given to bursts of disconcerting enthusiasm. Patty can be catty, but in an All-American Girl sort of way; however, she can also twirl a baton.
Miss Lynch is an old-maid English teacher.
Cha-Cha is a blind date. She is slovenly and loud-mouthed but homely. She takes pride in being the best dancer at 'St Bernadette's'

Performance Dates: 19th – 22nd November 2014


Further auditions for the male parts of Bernard, Stan and Jack will be Monday 21st July 7.30pm at Woodford Church Annexe, Chester Road, Woodford SK7 1PR.
The full character Breakdown for “Celebration” is here.
Celebration is a wonderful comedy from the ever witty pens of Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall. Set in the early 1960s this lovely play introduces us to a very Northern family,’The first act sees the family making wedding preparations. Weddings are very different affairs these days but some things never seem to change! The second act is set six months later and sees the family returning from the funeral of their Uncle Arthur and a few home truths emerge. As the saying goes, “Weddings and funerals, there’s nothing like them for bringing out the best and the worst in people”. A very entertaining observation of “the family”.

Audition by arrangement with director
Performance: Saturday 6th December to Saturday 13th December 2014


There is a leading male part up for grabs in "Arsenic and Old Lace", at Bolton little Theatre, This wonderfully hilarious classic black comedy, which is on BLT main stage 6 Dec to 13 Dec 2014. Read on.
Mortimer Brewster: (Playing age 30-40) Mortimer is teasing and flirtatious with his fiancée Elaine and exhibits genuine affection for her, his aunts, and for Teddy. As soon as he discovers the dead body in the window seat, his immediate goal is to protect his aunts. He bravely stands up to his brother Jonathan at the risk of his own safety. He is also excitable and does not handle the stressful situation very rationally. All ends well less through Mortimer's actions and more through coincidence and the fact that the police could never have suspect his aunts. Requires on stage energy and expressive ability

email: elizabeth_bown@hotmail.com


Sunday 25th May and Sunday 1st June from 6-8

A film of the great Tragedy of Macbeth
Macbeth and Banquo, generals in the service of King Duncan of Scotland, are returning victorious from battle when they are hailed by three witches or 'weyard sisters' who prophesy that Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor and then King of Scotland, whereas Banquo's descendants will be kings. The first part of the prophesy is soon fulfilled when Duncan rewards Macbeth's loyal service: encouraged by this, and playing on her husband's ambition, Lady Macbeth persuades him to murder Duncan while he is a guest at their castle
I am looking for Actors and Actresses to be part of a short film of Macbeth which will be shown during our celebration of Shakespeare in July.

I have parts for the third Weyward Sister, Lady Macbeth and Ross & Angus. The script has been modernised but is still has its original roots and we will be rehearsing every Sunday evening from 6-8 in West Wickham.
We will be filming in June in Shirley Hills on the 15th June and in the historic Bromley Parish Church on 9/10th June. This is an amazing project to be involved in and a very welcoming group.
Please don't miss out and contact Liz today for the script and a audition time!

“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ‘em”
Mayhem are very excited to announce auditions for our summer outdoor production of Shakespeare’s timeless classic, “Twelfth Night", to be performed at the beautiful Nonsuch Park in Cheam (Tue 22 & Wed 23 July) and Cannizaro Park in Wimbledon (Thu 24, Fri 25 & Sat 26 July).
Synopsis
Shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria, young noblewoman Viola disguises herself as a boy and joins the household of Duke Orsino, who is pining for the reclusive Olivia. Olivia herself has fallen for a young man who looks startlingly like Viola – could it be her twin Sebastian, who is presumed dead? Meanwhile, Olivia’s uncle, Sir Toby Belch conspires with his friends to bring haughty steward Malvolio down a peg or two in the funniest manner possible. A classic tale of mistaken identity, unrequited love and mismatched lovers, Twelfth Night has a cast of unforgettable characters. Combining high comedy with moments of bittersweet tenderness, it remains one of Shakespeare’s most endearingly popular comedies.
First Auditions
Mon 19 May from 8.00pm - 10.30pm (St John’s Ambulance Hall, 122-124 Kingston Road, South Wimbledon, SW19 1LY)
Thu 22 May from 8.00pm – 10.30pm (Emmanuel Hall, Dudley Drive, Morden, Surrey, SM4 4RJ)
All our auditions are open to both members and non members of Mayhem. Each session will begin with a compulsory workshop to warm everyone up and to give the team a chance to see people in a relaxed workshop environment. Don’t worry, we promise we won’t ask you to do anything too scary! As the workshops form an essential component of your audition, please make sure you arrive by 7.50pm (the hall will be open from 7.30pm) so that you can collect your audition form and be ready to start at 8.00pm. After the workshop we’ll revert to the usual format of seeing people individually. We’d like you to prepare 1 monologue and 1 duologue for your audition. All audition material can be found in the Audition Pack which you can download using the link at the bottom of this page.
Recall Auditions
Sunday 25 May 2014 from 3.00pm to 6.00pm (South Wimbledon)
If you’re invited to the recall session, we will work with you on some additional scenes and possibly ask you to read with another auditionee to see how you work opposite another character. Any additional material will be sent out immediately following the first round auditions. Part of your audition (weather dependent) may also be held outside so that we can have a listen to your projection.

Launch night, workshop and audition dates
The launch of Where There's A Will will take place on Friday 30th May 2014 at 8pm. The director will tell you about their vision for the show and what you can expect at rehearsals!
This will be followed by a read through of the script.

Synopsis
Where there's a will - there's relations is an old Yorkshire saying, but even phlegmatic Northerners would raise any eyebrow when these dry-eyed mourners turn up for Edi Puddiphatt's funeral. Each has a will naming them as sole heir to her millions, but the old lady was no fool and outwitted them all by leaving her final will in the hands of her caring god-child. As the vultures reel in shock, a fatal accident befalls the heiress, prompting a cunning plan for the others to get their hands on the cash. But even as they conspire, a ruthless killer stalks the house and bodies fall like flies.
Whodunnit? The alcoholic Miriam, venomous Velma, dreadful Donna, (heavily pregnant by her dim-witted male stripper boyfriend Troy), or one of the other wonderful characters that Robbins has created. All is revealed in this murderously funny comedy for three men and six women which broke all box-office records for Tiverton Dramatic Society when they gave its premier performance.

The show was made famous by the film version featuring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin and Bill Murray and on stage recently had a successful West End run starring BAFTA award-winning actress Sheridan Smith.

Mushnik, the store owner, gives Seymour one week to see if the "Audrey II" plant improves his business.
Unfortunately Seymour soon learns that Audrey II can talk and has a gruesome appetite.
He also discovers that the plant brings him success, money and fame--as well as the romantic interest of Audrey. However, the alien plant’s appetite grows bigger, with tragic results.
This hugely successful show is bursting with songs and a lively score by Alan Menkin whose past productions list Sister Act and Disney's Aladdin amongst others.
Not only that, but the Southport show features the largest animated puppet in Audrey II to appear on the Little Theatre stage.
To make a hit show like this happen Southport Spotlights need people to be part of this successful society.
They are looking for people who are full of energy, can sing, dance, enjoy working with a great team of talented production people and love having fun.
Everybody is welcome. They are also looking for people to help backstage and “front-of house”.

The Winter's Tale by William Shakespeare

For more information contact: Colin Gregory publicity@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk

Sunday 23rd March 2014, 7:30pm
Performance 11th July - 19th July 2014


Director: Colin Gregory
The Winter's Tale is neither comedy nor tragedy; it combines both. Written late in Shakespeare’s life, it is coloured with intense sadness and great joy. The King of Sicilia in a fit of jealousy accuses his wife Hermione of infidelity with his friend Polixenes, King of Bohemia. Faced with the shame of a trial and the sudden death of their young son, Hermione is seemingly killed by grief. Leontes orders her newly born daughter to be left to die in a remote place. The girl, Perdita, is rescued by a shepherd and later attracts the attentions of Florizel, the disguised son of Polixenes. With a few Shakespearian twists of the plot, Florizel and Perdita are happily united, Leontes and Polixenes reconciled, and Hermione miraculously returned to life.
There is plenty of scope for characterisation in both the large and small parts, which include some of the most rewarding in Shakespeare. All the cast will have plenty to do in this play, doubling parts where possible to create a tight ensemble. We will need a chorus of all ages to play lords and ladies, shepherds and shepherdesses and other characters, including up to eight parts for children aged 8+.
These are open auditions. Please read the auditions page if you have never auditioned with the GST before.

Please contact me on: Jessica.moody15@gmail.com or 07807842766

We are holding auditions on Monday 24th
We plan to film tuesday the 25th 6am-10am


We are not a theatre group but we're looking for actors from theatre for what we're planning on filming, as we need actors who are able to express a lot of emotions through facial expressions.
We are looking to make a 10 minute film with little dialogue, so we're looking for actors who are able to communicate with the audience through their facial expressions and body language.
We're looking for one male actor and one female actor. The male actor is an office worker who is in a rut and not enjoying life at the moment, until he meets the female role, who is very happy and bubbly and starts to show him how good life can be.
We plan to film tuesday the 25th 6am-10am, Further dates we are more flexible with and would like to start film early April.
We are holding auditions on Monday 24th at our University Edge Hill, which is in Ormskirk, St Helens Road, L39 4QP. In the 'Hub' which is the big building as you pull into the uni. If you have any problems please contact me.

It’s time for dramatic action! ”There's only one thing that sells tickets these days”, declares Gordon, the Chairman –“Sex”. But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex farce? All is revealed in David Tristram’s hilarious comedy of an Am-Dram society in trouble.
Following the success of their previous show, the Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society move to a new level of chaos with “Last Panto in Little Grimley” which sees Gordon, Margaret, Joyce and Bernard tackle the Christmas pantomime with predictably hilarious results.

A Chorus of Disapproval
by Alan Ayckbourn
Director: Francis Beckett


Contact: info@gardensuburbtheatre.org.uk

Audition: Sunday 23rd February 2014, 4:30pm
Performance Dates:
Thursday 22nd May 2014, 8pm
Friday 23rd May 2014, 8pm
Saturday 24th May 2014, 3pm
Saturday 24th May 2014, 8pm
The Bull Theatre, 68 The High Street, London, EN5 5SJ


We will be performing Alan Ayckbourn’s A Chorus of Disapproval at the Bull Theatre in Barnet on 22-24 May.
It’s about a local amateur light operatic society’s production of The Beggar’s Opera. Guy Jones joins the society and rises rapidly during rehearsals from bit part player to the lead, while also getting into bed with two discontented married woman and finding himself enmeshed in the brutal politics of the local business community.
A Chorus of Disapproval is, first and foremost, funny, and we’ll be doing everything we can to maximise that.
Auditions will be on Sunday 23 February at 4.30pm – please note the earlier-than-usual time – and they will finish, we hope, at about 7.30pm. They will be at St Margaret’s Church Hall. Audition pieces are available on the website.
Here are the characters needing to be cast, in the order in which they make their first appearance. Those marked (S) are required to sing. They don’t all have to sing well though!
These are open auditions. Please read the auditions page if you have never auditioned with the GST before.
For more information contact:
Francis Beckett francis@francisbeckett.co.uk
I’m looking forward to seeing as many people as possible at the audition.
In addition to the audition pieces, those who need to sing will also be asked to sing a few notes – BUT if you’re not a wonderful singer, don’t let that
stop you auditioning. This isn’t a musical, and a lot of the singing is supposed to be a bit ropey.
Please don’t make a big effort to study, much less learn, the audition pieces. If you’ve a got a little time, it’s probably better spent reading the play.
You may like to know that the cast will be doing a readthrough as soon as possible after the audition, hopefully within a week of it. I’m hoping to do backstories in the w/b March 3, and start rehearsals proper w/b March 17. We will rehearse two weekday evenings a week and late afternoon on Sundays. Of course, I won’t need the whole cast at every rehearsal, and I won’t waste anyone’s time. Once I know the cast’s other commitments, I will do a rehearsal schedule that ensures you are called only when you are needed. All rehearsals except the dress rehearsals will be held at St. Margaret's Church Hall, Victoria Avenue, Finchley N3 1BD.

We will be performing A Midsummer Night's Dream in July 2014, at Inn on the Park
For the auditions we are asking people to come with a Shakespearean monologue (does not have to be from A Midsummer Night's Dream). The actors don't have to have learnt it, but it would be useful if they have read through it and thought about the staging. This exercise will be used to judge the actors understanding and delivery of Shakespearean.
The play script will be available on the day, so if a monologue hasn't been selected, they can chose one from there.
The actors will also be split into groups to perform scenes from the play. This exercise will be used to judge how well the actors work with others, their adaptability and again their understanding of Shakespearean.

Casting information:
Musical adaptation of Michelle Magorian's captivating story of William, a young boy evacuated to the countryside during the Second World War and his remarkable, moving friendship with the curmudgeonly Tom Oakley.
TOM OAKLEY: 50-60yrs. Develops from reclusive, grumpy villager to concerned, kindly "granddad" as he gets to know William. Duets & solos. Confident baritone singer.
MRS BEECH: 30-45yrs. William's abusive, God fearing mother. Very disturbed emotionally. One dramatic solo (mezzo).

Dr. ALICE LITTLE: 30-60yrs. Friendly, efficient village doctor, helps Tom with William. Chorus
YOUNG SOLDIER: 18-30yrs. Sets the tone with a dramatic opening solo, repeated at end of Act 1. Could play other ensemble roles.
PEGGY FAULKES: Pleasant billeting officer, wants to do what`s best for the evacuees. Plays other ensemble roles.
WILLIAM BEECH: The reason for the whole show! Great role for young actor & singer aged 11+ , initially needs to appear as small, undernourished evacuee, growing in personality and confidence throughout the play. Must be a competent singer.
ZACH: Similar age or slightly older than William but complete opposite personality - confident and never stops talking! Confident soloist.
Many additional named parts for adults and children plus chorus numbers.
Audition dialogue for main roles will be available at opening meeting on 7th January. As the music is unfamiliar we shall ask those auditioning for main roles to sing something of their own choice. Cameo roles will be decided once main roles are cast.

Performance Thursday 10th April to Saturday 12th April 2014.
The technical & dress rehearsals will probably be the week-end of the 5th & 6th April.


An overview of the play & the characters follow. Scripts will be available from Thursday 9th January. So if you want to audition and I hope lots of you will then please contact me and I will arrange a script for you.
Murder Mystery "Who Killed the Vicar ?"
It’s murder-mystery meets Father Ted as preparations for the annual Summer Fayre bring mayhem and murder to the picturesque village of Steeply Willows!!
Reverend Martin Peacock is usually a diligent Minister, yet his attention has been swayed by the possibility of becoming the next Bishop of the ‘Grimeford and Huntley’ diocese. All manner of dark intentions, jealousies and subterfuge begin to surface among the Parochial Parish Council members during their meeting at the vicarage*. This results in Reverend* Peacock being stabbed in his armchair after the house’s lights have been sabotaged… but who would do such a dastardly thing??
When Detective Inspector Charlton of Scotland Yard, and Lilly Heeks representing the influential Bishop Burton, begin their investigation they unearth a whole tangle of lies, corruption and deceit. Malice hides behind the lace curtains of the picturesque village of Steeply Willows! But who would actually stoop so low as to kill the vicar? Could it be…
Gladys Sunday, the exasperated housekeeper…
Brenda Buffton, the robust Chairperson of the Parochial Parish Council…
Lincoln Green, an ineffectual Scout Leader…
Roy Chimes, the mysterious Church Organist…
Penny Lane, a ‘rambler’ who ‘just happens’ to stop by… or…
Father* Tobias, the disgruntled curate?
The diocese of Grimeford and Huntley holds its breath and ‘prays’ to avoid a national scandal!!
‘Who Killed the Vicar’ is a one hour comic play with 10 named characters- 3 male, 3 female & 4 of either sex (although with doubling-up it can be performed with just 8 actors.) It contains a rich source of humour and parodies the petty concerns and mock importance of committee members in all small communities. A divine murder-mystery!!
Cast List:
Narrator
Detective-Inspector Charlton- Close to retiring from Scotland Yard
Lilly Heeks- Bishop Burton’s legal representative
Reverend Martin Peacock- Vicar of the Parish of ‘St Ignatius the Unflappable’
Gladys Sunday- Martin’s housekeeper
Brenda Buffton- Chairperson of the Parochial Church Council and chief organiser of the Steeply Willows Summer Fayre
Lincoln Green- Scout Leader of the Grimeford and Huntley Fourteenth Troupe and member of the Parochial Church Council
Roy Chimes- Church Organist and member of the Parochial Church Council
Penny Lane- Local ‘rambler’
Tobias Byrne- Curate of the Parish of ‘St Ignatius the Unflappable’

There will be no "pit singers" - but there will be people who sing and don't do the dances (these are what I call "folks who just do movement"). This will be explained further on 27th January.
