Plea from the Chelmsford Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society

CAODS (Chelmsford Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society) are looking for auditionees to play the role of Deloris Van Cartier for our forthcoming production at the Civic Theatre Chelmsford (22-26 September 2015). 

Pre-audition rehearsals start on the 15th April, with auditions on Saturday 2nd May from 10am onwards. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings, Friday evenings and some Saturdays in Chelmsford. A full rehearsal schedule is available on request.

I would be most grateful if you would send this email and attachment to your membership. We are a high quality, friendly society and we would be delighted to welcome anyone interested to one of our first pre-audition rehearsals to come and meet us. 

Many thanks and kind regards

Claire Carr
Vice-Chairman
CAODS

A Plea!

A Wivenhoe based drama group are putting on Dad's Army at the Headgate Theatre in Colchester from May 3rd to May 9th.

They need an actor aged 40ish (can be younger or older!) to play Walker, the cheeky Cockney spiv.

It isn't a huge part so not too many lines to learn, though Walker is in a lot of scenes, even when not speaking.

Rehearsals are on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The Headgate is a lovely place to perform and the other actors are a friendly bunch.

We desperately ...need to cast someone - we "dismissed" the man playing Walker because he rarely came to rehearsals!

If anyone is curious/tempted then please call 07925 368888 asap.
Thank you.
