Talented youngsters are being given a chance to take centre stage at the Everyman later this year as theatre bosses are looking for amateur actors to star in a play commemorating the centenary of World War I.
Two boys aged 8-10 are needed to play the parts of the Will Harvey and Eric Harvey in a production of Will Harvey’s World which will run from July 30 to August 2.
The Everyman’s Creative Director, Paul Milton said: “This is a really exciting opportunity. Anyone interested should be able to deliver a number of lines and be quite confident physically as there is a mock battle sequence. Rehearsals will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings from mid-June.”
Alongside the boys, the theatre is also looking for an experienced amateur actress to play Will Harvey’s mother. Playing age 50 – 60. A warm-hearted and generous woman; very maternal.
Paul Milton adds, “We are also looking for two or three young men to play soldiers and prisoners-of-war. Aged 17-30. Strong physical skills are required, as there will be battle sequences to perform. Not a lot of spoken lines, but they will be required to be on stage a great deal.”
Auditions will be held in April. For further details contact Paul Milton at firstname.lastname@example.org
