Coming Up Next
Blue Remembered Hills directed by Linsey O'Neill
The story revolves around a summer's afternoon in a remote country setting in 1943. A group of seven seven year olds are playing in the forest. Although the characters are children the play is written for them to be played by adults and it captures all the joy, horror, anxiety and delight of children at play. The challenge for the actors is to remember the apparently trivial details of growing up which at the time seemed so important and transfer those emotions onto stage.

Castle Players' first Pantomime was Beauty and the Beast way back in 1978 and we've put on a panto every two years ever since.... except for Covid!
So, what does being in a pantomime involve?
Well, mostly, lots of fun!
We like our pantomimes to involve as many people as possible and we promise to find a part for you, no matter what age you are, whether you've been on stage before or are a total newcomer all that's needed is a good sense of humour and tons of enthusiasm! We always put on a professional show but for us, the most important thing is that we have fun and make new friends.
We do ask for commitment though and expect you to turn up to all the rehearsals that you're called for (these will generally be on Sunday afternoons, starting in October with main characters being called one or two weeknights too - usually followed by the pub!)
After Christmas, things start getting really interesting and we add more evenings into the mix. This is also the time we build our set and we're always grateful of help from anyone that can wield a paintbrush or a screwdriver!
Then we get to the run - this time it's 19,20, 26 & 27 January (there is one performance on each Friday and 2 on the Saturdays)
Our auditions for Dick Whittington will be at Lytchett Matravers Village Hall on Sunday 10th September at 2pm. Everyone is welcome! Children need to be over 11 and accompanied by an adult. For anyone wishing to have a singing part, you may wish to prepare a song.
Please bring along a copy of this form to help our director know which parts you would like to audition for!
