We need a couple of follow spot operators

Ever fancied taking part in one of our productions but didn’t want to act?  We need a follow-spot operator (well two actually). We will train you to use the spot-light correctly. Ideally, you’ll be tall enough to easily reach the follow-spot light on its stand (minimum 5ft/152cm) and also you will need to be available for all rehearsals from 29 December 2018 onwards and all performances until we finish on 5 January 2019. If you’re interested get in touch with us or email secretary@shawburyvillageplayers.co.uk.

Pantomime 2019 Adult Open Auditions

Wednesday 10th October 2018 7:30pm in the Old Library
at Shawbury Village Hall

Would you like to join in Shawbury Village Players family pantomime this year? We are performing ‘The Little Mermaid’ by Warren McWilliams

Performance Dates at Shawbury Village Hall are:-

Thursday 3rd January – Saturday 5th January 2019

We are looking for all age groups. People who want to act, sing, dance, help out back stage, with set design and painting. Do you fit the bill?  If so we would love you to come along and join us and try for a part. We are a friendly bunch and panto rehearsals are great fun. If you are cast and not a current member of Shawbury Village Players you will be expected to join the group as society rules and insurance require this. For full details of  membership click here.

Rehearsals will take place every Wednesday evening and Sunday afternoon in Shawbury Village Hall. You will be expected to commit to attend the rehearsals. Nearer the performance dates you will be required at the technical and dress rehearsals too, which might take place at other times and days.

We are looking for Merfolk, Villagers, Sea Creatures, Unfortunate Souls and a ghost as well as 19 larger speaking parts, male and female! 

Here is more audition information which you should read before you attend the audition.
