Our cast of 14 are having great fun rehearsing Auditions, the one-act play that forms part of our Comedy Theatre Lunches in February. It is a play adapted from an original work by American author Ian MacWethy and is the story of The English Theatre Company's audition sessions for the lead roles of Romeo and Juliet. Most of the auditions hilariously highlight the unsuitability of the actors for the parts they are auditioning for. Divas, dimwits, prima donnas, method actors, hooligans — they all try for parts, but none succeed. The cast keep having to take laughter breaks in rehearsals, so we know our audiences will be in stitches.
We are having fun rehearsing for our Comedy Theatre Lunches that will be performed in February. We have a cast of 14 players all determined to blow away those winter blues and take your minds off Brexit blues.
All venues are new for the English Theatre Company. Our lunches start with performances of Eating Out by Alan Bennett followed by Well I Never Did by Stephen Fry and finishing with a short comedy play called Auditions, specially adapted for the English Theatre Company.
The performances take just over an hour and commence promptly at 12.00 with lunch being served at 1.15.
