ALL are welcome at auditions for a new community play, written especially for Lyme Regis by former resident and professional screenwriter Andy Rattenbury.

Following the success of Andy’s previous community plays, ‘The Tempest’, ‘Monmouth’ and ‘Are You Going to the Marine?’, he has now written ‘Lyme and the Sea’, focussing on the town’s close connections with the sea through the ages.

Organisers were pleased with a good turnout at introduction meetings staged in October and will now be hosting auditions this week.

Auditions are being held for the cast, musicians and singers on Sunday, November 28 and Monday, November 29 at the Marine Theatre, both from 6pm to 8pm.

You do not have to have attended the introduction meetings to audition.

Performers are needed for lead roles, walk-on parts, soloists and ensemble numbers.

Those interested in auditioning should email, giving your email address, a phone number and how you would like to be involved in the play. Pieces from the script for auditions will then be sent to you.

Organisers are also looking for stage crew, those to make costumes, do make-up or hair, help with social media, or have a mixture of roles.

A spokesperson said: “This is your community play, and the more people get involved the better it will be.

“Even if you have never been on stage or taken part in a production, this is a fantastic opportunity to have a go.

“We will be running workshops and master classes. It will be a learning, performing and all-round fun experience.”

Rehearsals for the play will start in January 2022, but you will not need to come every week until after Easter and even then, rehearsals will be staggered.

The performance dates will be June 15 to 18 2022.
