Play Reading

Thursday 8th August at 8pm at the Hut.

This will be an informal social gathering to have some drinks and nibbles, read the play and find out more about what roles we have available. This isn't just for actors, everyone is welcome so please feel free to come along to see the gang and have a bit of a catch up while finding out more about our November production. If you are new to ATG or you met us at the Blanchmans Fayre recently this is the perfect opportunity to meet the rest of the gang and find out more about what we do, with no obligation to read or audition unless you want to.

Auditions

Tuesday 13th & Thursday 15th August at 8pm at the Hut.

You only need to come to one of the above not both, but you're welcome to come to both if you'd like to. The audition itself will be fairly informal. You'll be asked to read for our director Christine and the other members of our casting committee and then it's off to the pub!
