Auditions will be held at the theatre on Tuesday 14th November 2017 for our April production 'The Turn of the Screw', a ghost story adapted by Ken Whitmore from an original story by the famous author, Henry James.
The play will be directed by Chris Rozier who many of you may now from Louth shows over the past few years.
The show has a total of 7 characters, two of whom are children, a boy aged approximately 10 called Miles and a girl of about 8 named Flora. Others are the children's benefactor, Mr. Crimond (who only appears for a short period at the start of the play), an adult male ghost and an adult female ghost (both non-speaking parts), and the remaining principal roles (female) comprising of the housekeeper, Mrs Grose, and the children's governess, Miss Grey.
The action takes place in a lonely large house in the country called Bly. Mr. Crimond pays all the expenses of the house and leaves his wards, the children, to be educated. The only one stipulation is that he is never to be contacted. Shortly after her arrival Miss Grey sees ghosts in the house but, surprisingly, no-one else seems bothered about this. The tale continues to take many ghostly twists ultimately ending in tragedy.
It is hoped to have a read through of the play with the successful cast just before Christmas with rehearsals taking place throughout some of January plus February and March. Rehearsals will take place twice weekly (days to be decided) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
The production dates are 9th to 14th April 2018.
If you interested in auditioning for this show please join us on 14th November for what should be an exciting production.
