World War One Commemoration 1914-1918

World War One Commemoration

Produced by Victoria Seager
Music Director Tony Jose

Performances:  8th-13th October 2018

Audition/Reading:  Sunday 1st July 2018 at 2.30 pm

In 2014, Herne Bay Little Theatre presented a World War One Commemoration  programme.We invited our audiences to hear the story of how the War started, the unfolding dateline as Great Britain struggled against a determined foe, listen to the potent poems, the funniest sketches, and hear how Herne Bay helped the war effort. We also invited them to sing the songs, both sad and rollicking, that got the country through its darkest hours.

We are presenting this now extended production again for a full week in 2018 to commemorate the ‘War to end all Wars’. If you would like to participate in this incredibly lively and moving event, please come along on 1st July.

CAST

The cast will include soldiers, kings, nurses, suffragettes and politicians, singers and comedians.

As the script comprises lots of speeches, comedy routines, poetry, songs and yearly dateline events, this is not so much an audition, but a meeting to read a few pieces, see how many people are interested and discuss what they would like to do. I shall be leaving a couple of drafts in the script box at the theatre from 1 June, but I would appreciate it if you could just look through them there and leave them for others to see.

If you are interested in taking part in this Commemoration please email Victoria at melford49@btinternet.com, or just turn up on Sunday 1st July at 2.30pm.
