Jane Eyre – postponed

Our forthcoming production of Jane Eyre will not take place as planned at the end of April. As you will know the current Coronavirus outbreak is impacting on many areas of individual and collective activity, and Government advice is changing almost daily. The Wickham Theatre Trust Board has reached this difficult decision after discussions with the cast and crew, all of whom remain committed to staging Jane Eyre at a future date.
So you will all have to wait a little longer to enjoy this remarkable piece of theatre!
We will continue to monitor the situation and let you know of any further developments as soon as we can. We encourage everyone to do everything they can to stay safe and to look out for themselves and each other during what is likely to be a very challenging time for us all.

Auditions for Bouncers Remix

BouncersAudition details for Theatre 62’s June 2020 production have been announced.

Full details at http://www.theatre62.wordpress.com/auditions or by clicking here

This is a funny, energetic piece of highly theatrical storytelling where the men are at once both themselves and every character they meet on a night working at the nightclub.

The boredom of the men on the door spills over into grotesque violence and fantasy.

The antics of the girls and boys out for a night on the town hardly needs developing to make them dramatic. The conflict between those wanting a good time and those stopping a good time from being bad is a basic dramatic premise.

The central theme of Bouncers is universal: men after beer after women and the beat goes on. There is also a Bouncers rap which should prove entertaining.

Jane EyreAuditions for Jane Eyre

The April 2020 production, which is also Theatre 62’s Bromley Full-Length Play Festival entry, is Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte, adapted for the stage by Polly Teale.

This is a modern interpretation of a timeless classic and although challenging, with many roles doubling, should provide performers and audience alike with a truly exciting and dramatic experience.

Auditions:

Friday 10 January, 8 p.m.
Monday 13 January, 8 p.m.
Monday 20 January, 8 p.m.
Friday 24 January, 8 p.m.
