Harlequins appeal for actors with sense, and sensibility
11:00am Saturday 25th August 2012 in News
ACTORS and actresses are needed to join an award-winning theatre company’s production of a Jane Austen classic.
Harlequin Theatre, in Northwich, is holding an audition for Sense and Sensibility at its Queen Street headquarters on Wednesday, August 29.
Director Kelly White, who is hoping to repeat her sell-out success with Pride and Prejudice, said: “I am really excited by the new adaptation by Jon Jory that we will be using, which allows us to use a minimal set and concentrate on the characters and moving the action along.”
Another Harlequin signature feature of beautiful, authentic costumes is guaranteed as Kelly has secured the services of wardrobe mistresses Julie Hoskins and Ann Lloyd.
The show take the stage from October 24 to 27.
Kelly is especially looking for young men who can play in the 20 to 35 age group and carry a plot line where what is said disguises what is really felt, and where conventional politeness disguises manipulation and downright deception.
Actresses who can play young women seeking to break through convention as they search for romance and happiness are also needed.
Auditions will start at 7.45pm.
