Would you like the chance to be part of a production at the New Wolsey Theatre?

We have the opportunity for some local ladies to play the “Old Ladies” in Peter Rowe’s production of The Ladykillers this Autumn!

We are looking for up to 16 mature ladies who look over the age of 65 to play the “Old Ladies” who appear at the end of Act One and beginning of Act Two to watch a concert.

Production dates are below but we can be flexible with your current commitments, if you are not able to be present at all performances. You will be able to leave each performance after your second appearance, after the interval (approx. 9pm).

A contribution towards travel expenses will be available.

Production dates:

Thursday 7th September – Saturday 30th September 2017, with matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There will be some flexibility within these dates for those who are not available for all of them.

Rehearsal dates:

Ladies will be required to attend rehearsals on Friday 1st September 7pm – 9pm and Saturday 2nd 10am – 1.30, and then technical and dress rehearsals on the evenings of 5th and 6th September.
