Next Generation – Wind in the Willows Auditions 27th January @ 3.30pm
We are delighted to announce that our young actors company (for 12-16 year olds) will be performing Wind in the Willows at The Haslemere Hall on the 14/15 June. This is a musical version of the classic story of the adventures of Mr Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger as they come up against the dastardly wild wooders who are intent on taking over Toad Hall by making sure Mr Toad goes to prison for ever. Our version has been written by our very own Adam Forde with music by David Perkins. There are plenty of fabulous characters and great opportunities for singers and non singers.
I will be co-directing alongside Naomi Robertson with Lizzie Hales as MD and Jenny Manville as producer.
We will be holding a workshop style audition at Haslemere Hall from 3.30-6.30 on Sunday 27th January. Nothing needs to be prepared advance. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Please feel free to pass on information about this to any teenagers you know that may be interested.

84 Charing Cross Road is a heartwarming and moving story based on the remarkable Trans-Atlantic correspondence between New York screenwriter Helene Hanff and the staff at London antiquarian bookshop Marks & Co.
But this is no mere recital of letters as the relationships grow beyond the initial book orders to take in witty literary repartee, shared personal lives and a certain kind of love affair.
On a stage divided between Miss Hanff’s cluttered Manhattan apartment and the inviting mustiness of the Marks & Co bookshop, the audience will watch common passions and mutual care develop over twenty years through post war austerity to “Swinging London” into bonds that bridge the Atlantic.
