Welcome to the Hollesley Players

For our 2016 Christmas Pantomime we are putting on Snow White.

Hi everyone
A gentle reminder and update for the Christmas Panto Snowwhite
The auditions take place on Friday 9th September in Hollesley Village Hall to start at 6.30 pm
Auditions from 6.30 -8pm for under 18 yrs
And from 8pm -9.30pm ish for adults
Shortly we will publish a cast list so that you will be able to see the range of parts , with a brief part description .
The script is within a little complete , but it is subject to alteration , and almost all songs and dance music chosen .The script includes a good range of parts with of course some parts larger than others . When the list is published you will be able to look over it and see which one(s) you would like to try for.
There are one or two parts which could be done by a dame , the decision to include a dame character has not been finalised . Over the years I have been lucky enough to get the dame part , but I do feel time has come for someone else to have a go at the roll , so come on you lot get on to your dad and get him on stage with boobs and booty , it's a great part and let's you have fun with audience if you want to , singing would be optional . ( Box of chocs to anyone who talks a man into it )
In the cast there are two parts , Yocal 1 and Yocal 2
These are ideally male Cameo comic rolls for two who maybe have never been on stage before , two friends maybe who could rehearse together whenever , the parts are not large ones with lots of lines , just brief a appearance in three
scenes , if you can tell a joke you can do it . So don't be shy give us a ring or come along on the 9th with your friend or on your own if you can't convince anyone else to join you .

As you know we are always looking for new members for Hollesley Players so if each of you could speak to / ask at least one person it would be amazing what could happen .
So hopefully today we will have the cast list for you and don't forget to put the 9th SEPTEMBER in your diary and tell your mum/dad.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if there is anything you want to know .
See you on 9th Sep.
