Treasure Island the Panto - Directed by Peter Ingledew

SHIVER ME TIMBERS!!!!!

Audition dates are now confirmed for Monday 6th and Thursday 9th September at 7.30pm. Both auditions will be in The Henfield Hall.

A cast of piratical males, cake making females and a large parrot is needed for this fun packed pantomime (sorry for any stereotyping, crossover roles will be welcomed). Please see the attached pdfs for details of the characters and a full copy of the script for reading at bedtime.

Alternatively if having fun actually on stage is not for you but you would like to help and get involved in other ways then get in touch we would love to hear from you!

 

 

Sunday 12th September

Blood Brothers - Youth Theatre Group

Once upon a time, long, long ago in the year 2019, an exciting new chapter was about to unfold in the world of Henfield Theatre Company...young people had started gathering, practising and rehearsing for a brand-new workshop production of Willy Russell’s renowned play, “Blood Brothers”, and with it the company saw the launch of its very own Youth Theatre Group. But, lurking in the corner, unbeknown to anyone, was an evil, sinister, out-of-the-ordinary infection, determined to stop everyone’s fun. And before they knew it, Covid-19 had struck and the “Blood Brothers” production came to a dramatic halt, frozen in time. But, like all good fairy tales, there is of course a happy ending, and now we are delighted to be able to re-launch the show, with old and NEW cast members working towards an exciting and experimental performance in November 2021.

This NON-MUSICAL version (singing not required), aimed at 10 - 18-year olds, tells the story of twin brothers, Mickey and Edward Johnstone, via the key moments in their lives from birth, through their childhood, teenage years, adulthood and finally their tragic deaths …

Karen Blunden, an experienced Theatre-in-Education director and drama teacher, will lead a workshop/ audition at the Henfield Hall on Sunday 12th September, 2-5pm. Principal roles are being retained by members of the pre-Covid group, but there are plenty of places left for ensemble cast.

Rehearsals will begin on Thursday 16th September, 5-7pm, and continue every Monday and Thursday thereafter. (Also 2 Sunday afternoons, dates TBC) Performances to an invited audience will take place on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th November. There will be a fee of £20 to cover all sessions, including a script.

Karen says “Blood Brothers is a very human story about love, friendship and hidden truths, as relevant today as when it was written 40 years ago. I want to explore and produce a theatrical experience where the audience and cast can laugh and cry together. It’s a powerful, moving and compassionate play and stands for everything I believe theatre can be".

To reserve a place for your child/young person, please email us at secretary@henfieldtheatrecompany.com quoting their name and date of birth and also your telephone number, by 31st August 2021."
