No sooner have we closed the curtain on pantomime than we’re onto our next project. We’re delighted to welcome a new director for the Copthorne Players – Louisa Worssam, who you will have seen in our production of Blithe Spirit in 2021, will be directing our upcoming production of Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest at the Copthorne Village Hall.
We’re keen to get going as soon as possible, so auditions are tomorrow night, Wednesday 8th February at 8:15pm at the Delmar Morgan Centre.
What do you need to know?
If you fancy getting involved in the show in another capacity – prompting, front of house, backstage, and so on – watch this space, as we’ll be putting out calls for volunteers shortly!
- The show will run for three nights in mid-late April, exact dates to be confirmed. Rehearsals will start as soon as the play is cast and will be on Monday and Wednesday evenings at the Village Hall and Delmar Morgan.
- The show will be directed by Louisa Worssam and produced by Bev Brown.
- There are eight parts available: two young men, two young women, two older men and two older women.
- (For those who know the play well, yes, that means we’re doubling up the butler!)
- Audition parts are available to download here along with a detailed list of character descriptions.
