The team that brought you Under Milk Wood and The
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, return to present Wyrd Sisters by Britain’s favourite and much-missed fantasy author,
Terry Pratchett®. Directed by Andy Fraser.
'A king has been murdered, the crown lost, a land in peril. Only three women stand between the Kingdom and destruction but they are no wallflowers, they are Discworld® Witches! The problem with witches is they don’t agree with meddling in politics, in fact they rarely agree on anything except that they definitely do not have leaders. Granny Weatherwax is the most highly-regarded of the leaders they definitely don’t have and she is about to discover that meddling with royalty is a lot more difficult than certain playwrights would have you believe.'
As with previous productions, this Hippodrome Foyer Play is based on an original radio script dramatized by Vince Foxall for BBC Radio 4 and will be performed script-in-hand with live sound effects and a large cast of players old and new. Featuring strolling minstrels, fools, ghosts, murderers and diverse alarums!
Auditions will be held on Tuesday 27th June at 7pm. With over thirty different characters everyone can get a part. So if you’ve ever considered dipping your toe into acting but are a little worried about learning lines, this is the perfect opportunity. No lines, no scenery to bump into, just silliness on a disc-wide scale.
Just register your interest on the form opposite and you will receive further information closer to the date. We are looking for 11 named characters, 19 walk-on roles and 2 foley artists to provide live sound effects during the performance.
