Our production in February next year will be Arthur Miller’s dramatic play ‘The Crucible’.   The play will be directed by Richard Haighton.   Auditions will take place at Manor Gardens at 7.30pm on Wednesday 26 September. Auditions are open to all, members and non-members.

 This is a play that has a large cast of about 20 characters.   Therefore the Production Committee will be keen to ensure that the auditions are carefully managed and each character dealt with as quickly as possible.   It will help if those who wish to audition have prepared by reading the play beforehand – and perhaps taking a careful look at relevant sections for their character(s ) of interest as shown below (page numbers based on the Penguin Modern Classics edition, ISBN 978-0-141-18255, and in brackets the Heinemann edition which can be borrowed for the play reading - please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
