WHETHER you want to tread the boards or prefer to stay behind the scenes, there’s a place for you in Project Play. This year’s production of Dad’s Army offers male and female roles on and off stage.

Producer Matthew Rock explains: “Project Play is for anyone who enjoys being on stage, acting or being part of a production in any capacity. Acting roles will be decided through our audition process, but we also invite would-be directors, stage managers, stage crew, costumiers, assistants and basically anyone who would like to be involved in the project to get in touch with us.”

This is the third year running that Project Play has visited Wimborne, following productions of The Vicar of Dibley and also ‘Allo ‘Allo.

Previous participant, Tracey Rawlins, who played Edith in one of last year’s productions of ‘Allo ‘Allo said: “Project Play is a wonderful opportunity to get involved in community theatre. I had a warm friendly experience and can’t wait to audition again.”

Matthew adds: “Anybody interested in auditioning for acting roles can find out more by visiting the Project Play Facebook page and sending us a message. We hope as many people as possible will be able to join us for our read-through on October 3. There will be a friendly and encouraging welcome for everybody from the Project Play team.”

A script read-through, with the opportunity to find out more, takes place at Wimborne Town Hall on Thursday, October 3 followed by auditions for all acting roles on Sunday, October 6.

* The Wimborne production runs from Thursday, April 30 until Saturday, May 2. For moreinformation visit Project Play on Facebook or call details, call 07970 216459.
