We have had our first auditions for this exciting development producing 'Cheatin Heart' a radio play by Rostrevor actress Maggie Shelvin. Our aim is to stage this before the July holidays for one evening in Abbey Lane Theatre. We are still looking for a male actor/reader from 35/50 age group preferably who can do a Belfast accent.
Also 2 female teenagers and one male teen to act the youthful main characters in the play of Dan , Geraldine and Maura. run time is about 40mins and you have the scripts to hand throughout...so simples!
ATG will stage our first Radio/Audio play this July...'Cheatin' Heart' by Maggie Shevlin, and need a cast of interesting voices to take on this exciting project. Acting experience is not essential and we are encouraging those with little stage experience to grasp this opportunity to perform on stage with a script grasped in your mit.
We need 2 adult females and one male to read the main parts and 2 teen girls and one teen boy. A Sound techy would be handy also!
Continuing with our evening's of Play readings Armagh Theatre Group invites you to Abbey Lane on Tues 12th June. Come along to read or listen to prospective plays which may see their way to the stage in the coming months. 'A matter of grave importance', 'Cash on delivery' and a radio play 'Cheating Heart' (more later on this one) are going to be read. So the more readers the better. New faces and voices needed, young/mature/female and male all welcome. A warm welcome, a laugh and refreshments await you and a friend.
