The Cranbourne Amateur Dramatic Society (CADS) will be staging Men At Arms, directed by Simon Heffer, as their autumn production: "The Ankh-Morpork City Night Watch find their services are once more needed to tackle a threat to their city. A threat at least as deadly as a 60-foot dragon, but mechanical and heartless to boot. It kills without compunction. It is the first gun on the Discworld. The original Watch – Captain Vimes, Sergeant Colon, Corporal Carrot and Corporal Nobbs – are joined by some new recruits, selected to reflect the city's ethnic make-up – Lance-constables Cuddy, Detritus, and Angua. In a city, where Assassins are clowning about and Fools are dying, the Watch must keep control of themselves as much as its citizens."

This just in from The Truth director Pamela Munt...




"The truth shall make ye free fret"

Particularly if your deadline is urgent because, as everyone knows, “A lie can run around the world before the truth has got it’s boots on”


presents a fresh take on...

Sir Terry Pratchett’s “The Truth”
Adapted by Stephen Briggs.
Mucked about with, for Unseen Theatre Company, by Pamela Munt

There’s been a murder. Allegedly. But William de Worde, accidental editor of the Discworld's first newspaper, has got an inside line on the hot story. The facts say that Ankh-Morpork’s ruler, Lord Vetinari is guilty. But as William soon learns, facts don’t always tell the whole story. There’s that pesky little thing called The Truth, that just keeps trying to get out. Luckily William has an informant. He can’t be a talking dog because dogs can’t talk. He’s known only as...Deep Bone.

Through all of his investigations, William must cope with the daily perils of a journalist's life – people who want him dead, a recovering vampire with a suicidal fascination for flash photography, some more people who want him dead in a different way and, worst of all, the man who keeps begging him to publish pictures of his humorously shaped vegetables.

Then there are the dark forces high up in Ankh-Morpork’s society who are plotting to overthrow Lord Vetinari and who have employed two Tarantino-esque thugs, Mr. Tulip and Mr. Pin for the purpose. They mean business.

William just wants to get at THE TRUTH. Unfortunately, everyone else wants to get at William. And it's only the third edition...BUT.....

“If it’s published, it’s ink-validated”

Things you need to know about auditions:-

Auditions are usually held as "cold" group readings of excerpts from the script – so no need to prepare anything, and no need to make an individual audition time. However – you must notify the Director via email of your intention to attend the auditions so that we know how many people to expect. It is to your advantage to read (before attending auditions) anything by our usual author Sir Terry Pratchett so that you are familiar with the genre of the play. If you would like the Director to also hear a prepared monologue please notify the Director at the time and stay after the group reading for her to listen to it.

Rehearsals are held 3 times per week – usually Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings for a period of 10 weeks before the performance dates.

Colwick Theatre Club is staging Maskerade this week – starting tonight!

Also, there is a related human interest – well, feline interest – story in the Nottingham Post:

"A missing cat returned to its owners having lost an eye after five years in the wilderness – and weeks before the couple perform in a play featuring a one-eyed feline. Half-Persian tabby Silva was feared dead when she went missing from her Colwick home in 2010. But last Monday owner Gale Brammer received a call from Cat Rescue saying microchipped Silva had been picked up by one of their volunteers. The news came as Gale, 56, and her husband Richard, 48, were rehearsing the Colwick Theatre Club's production of Terry Pratchett's Maskerade. Richard, producer of the show, said: 'It's the most bizarre coincidence. It was almost too coincidental to be true. In the play, Nanny Ogg has a tomcat called Greebo, who only has one eye. Silva had two eyes when we last saw her, so she must have been through some awful things. It's very sad, but she's home and safe now.'... The couple toyed with the idea of casting their cat in the role but decided it would be too cruel to put her on stage in front of live audiences... The couple have since raised £200 for Cat Rescue in Silva's name..."

The Dereham Theatre Company will present their production of Wyrd Sisters next March at Dereham Memorial Hall. But auditions for the cast are happening this month!

The online audition form can be found at http://dosoc.co.uk/audition.asp

About the auditions:

Read-Throughs:
Monday October 19th at 7:30pm
Monday October 26th at 7:30pm

Auditions:
Saturday October 31st from approx. 11:00am till 5:00pm

All at The Studio, rear of Dereham Memorial Hall, 62 Norwich Street, Dereham NR19 1AD

Director Paul Allum says:

It is beneficial to attend one or both read-throughs to get a feel for the play and characters, although not necessarily essential. Please make sure you are available for the whole Audition day. If you are unable to make this or need to attend at a specific time, please let us know ASAP. Whilst it will not count against you, learning the extracts ahead of Auditions will help us judge your comedic skill. Also whilst accents can be worked on (we have six months) we are looking for at least some effort in speaking with the appropriate dialect... There are 33 individual parts and we’re aiming for a cast of around twenty. Those not in lead parts are likely to be playing 2 – 4 characters throughout the production and there are plenty of lines (and comedy moments) to go around. I encourage you to read the original novel or listen to the audio book version. There is also an animated film adaptation (available on YouTube) which sticks fairly closely to the novel.

A full Audition Timetable will be e-mailed by Thursday October 29th. However, if you have any further questions, e-mail me at secretary@dosoc.co.uk.
