Urgently needed for next production!
Someone who is willing and able to help select appropriate music and songs for the cast. The Director is planning on about 12 musical numbers at least one of which will be without words. Some songs are already selected. There is opportunity to showcase some original/specially composed songs. Proficient on keyboard/piano and able to accompany singing. May Hill Players have sung in previous productions but with one or two exceptions they are not regular singers. Singing is planned to be mainly ensemble with one or two solos and some songs with lines sung by individual characters. Production dates are 26, 27 and 28 January 2018 with dress rehearsal on 21 January. I anticipate a complete run through on a Sunday early in December. If a 3/4 piece band can be organised then that’s a bonus. Some collaboration needed with the Choreographer as well as the Director.
We can annouce we have found our Choreographer – Lynne Heron has aggreed to step up and put us through our paces.
So now you have had enough of summer holidays and you want something challenging, interesting and stimulating to do in the company of some interesting, stimulating and challenging people. The planned January production for the May Hill Players is ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ and is an adaptation of the Jules Verne Novel. We are having a script read through on 21st August at May Hill Village Hall to see if further adaptation is required. (Alas, although there is singing and dancing in the production none is planned on the night of the read through….this does not mean to say there will not be any, people can get a bit carried away at these workshops). You can be the famous Phileas Fogg (or if not enough chaps turn up maybe Felicity Fogg), you can sail the high seas, ride an elephant, fly in a hot air balloon (well you can have a jolly good time pretending to do those things), play any number of the over fifty characters in the play and go right around the world in,..er… two hours? This read through is for adults only and all constructive feed back will be taken into account in finalising the script. Do come along, it will be hard work if there are only two of us.
