Directed by Nikki Wilkinson.
Show dates: Monday 22 – Saturday 27 February 2016
Auditions: Monday 9th and Wednesday 11th November at 8 p.m.
Three women of a ‘certain age’ gravitate to Paris. There’s Nancy, a retired headmistress determined to throw off the shackles; Anna, recently widowed – and free – after years of nursing a sick husband; and Raquel, a divorcee in search of eternal youth and a new toy boy.
A feel-good play with laughter and tears, the promise of romance, friendship and anger, and the advantages and disadvantages of growing old. Perhaps not La Vie en Rose, but We’ll Always Have Paris is certainly a play that will leave audiences charmed, amused, thoughtful – and smiling.
The characters (and acting ages):
Nancy – a retired straight-laced headmistress who is now renting a flat in Paris (aged 60s)
Anna – a quiet mousy type (ages 60s)
Raquel – wants to be eternally young (age 60s)
Madame Boussiron – the put-upon French landlady (age 50s)
Charlot – a Parisian handyman who would be an actor (age 60s)

Auditions take place in advance of productions to allow the Director to assemble the cast. Each Director has his/her own way of auditioning; some prefer to read straight from the text, others choose to try improvisation; some a mixture of both. Auditions can often be a lot of fun, and gives an actor a chance to try out for different parts.
At Theatre 62 we like to welcome new faces to the stage as well as longer-standing regulars. Most auditions are ‘open’, which means non-members are welcome to come along and audition. If you are successful you will need to join Theatre 62 (for a small fee) as a Full Member.
Auditions are held at Wickham Theatre Centre, location here.
