Auditions for Ladies Day in March

Ladies Day posterAuditions details are available for Ladies Day.  See http://www.theatre62.org.uk or click here.

For Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda their humdrum life at the Hull fish filleting factory is about to change when they find some VIP tickets for Royal Ascot Ladies day racecourse held in York.

Out go the hairnets, wellies and overalls as the glammed up girls head to the races dressed to the nines.

As the day unfolds and the champagne flows, the girls get tipsy, secrets spill out and their horses keep winning.

If their luck holds they could hit the jackpot and more beside, but at what cost?

Auditions: We’ll Always Have Paris by Jill Hyem

We'll Alway Have ParisWe’ll Always Have Paris by Jill Hyem
Directed by Nikki Wilkinson.

Auditions: Monday 9th and Wed 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)

Madam Boussiron – the put-upon French landlady (age 50s)

Charlot – a Parisian handyman who would be an actor (age 60s)
