Bay Theatre Players thrilled to present Calendar Girls

Bay Theatre Players are thrilled to present Calendar Girls by Tim Firth as the final production for the 2022 Season.

The Players will be auditioning for several adult roles, both male and female, for a production scheduled to be onstage in October/November 2022.

Auditions will be held on Saturday 18 June 2022, and production audition packs are available on the website . Audition forms should be returned to the Director, Candy Burgess, by 2 May 2022, in order to schedule audition times and send out audition pieces to those interested.

Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls became the fastest selling play in British theatre and is performed all over the world. It is traditional that the cast produce a replica Calendar that will be sold at the theatre and all profits are donated to Cancer Research. BTP will proudly be upholding this tradition!

With a large cast that lends itself to add some non-speaking roles for those wishing to try treading the boards, it is a marvellous fit for our theatre community and an uplifting end to the theatre year.

Come and join in the fun!

Bay Theatre Players are also busy with rehearsals for their mid-year performance, Compass by Jessica Bellamy. This play is the perfect example of a script that focuses on the “Ensemble” and creates an opportunity for ten young actors to shine.

The cast have wholeheartedly taken on the challenges of portraying the different personalities in each role and their interactions with each other. We have also been able to give an opportunity to a “new to the stage” adult member who is playing a supporting role as the teacher, Mr Finchley.

Compass will be on stage from Friday 24th June to Sunday 3rd July, and tickets will be available at soon.

If you would like to join your theatre community and find your creative spark, come along to one of Bay Theatre Players Workshops, Play Explorations or Information sessions for new productions.
