THE first read-through of a new community play written specifically for Lyme Regis will be held this Sunday, January 16. 

Auditions for ‘Lyme and the Sea’, written by professional screenwriter Andy Rattenbury, were held in November and all acting parts and those wanting to sing have now been invited along to the first read-through.

A spokesperson said: “There was a great turn out for the auditions back in November held over two evenings. There is a diverse group from all over the community of all ages who have come forward to act, sing and manage all the behind the scenes tasks together.”

The read-through will be held in St Michael’s Parish Church Hall with COVID restrictions applied. This will be the first time all those taking part in the production will meet together with director Tessa Morton, writer Andy Rattenbury and the rest of the team, to read through the script and talk about the production.

The play will be staged at the Marine Theatre in June, following Andy’s previous successful community plays ‘The Tempest’, ‘Monmouth’ and ‘Are You Going to the Marine?’.
