Audition Notice

Neville’s Island

Directed by Sean Duxbury

Audition Date – Sunday 28 November 11 am at Chorley Little Theatre

Production Dates – Monday 28 February – Saturday 5 March

Four out-of-condition, middle-aged businessmen sent off on a team building exercise in the Lake District succeed in being the first people ever to get shipwrecked on an island on Derwentwater. Bound in fog, menaced by wildlife and cut off from the world, their pathetic attempts to get themselves rescued are hampered by their inability to cooperate as much as by their ineptitude in the Great Outdoors What should have been a bonding process for Gordon, Angus, Roy and Neville turns into a muddy, bloody fight for survival. Because when night settles in, strange things happen out in the wilds. And what took place on Neville's Island that foggy November weekend none of this particular middle-management team would ever forget

The four characters are:

Neville, whom the others have elected Captain and who has promptly proved his unfitness for the post by leading his team confidently in the wrong direction.

Gordon, the dour malcontent whose cruel sarcasm provides many of the play’s funniest one-liners

Angus, the somewhat dim-witted loser who appears to have bought up a camping shop’s entire stock for the trip.

Roy, a born-again Christian who has recently returned to work following a prolonged breakdown – and who is heading, in the play’s considerably darker second half, for a spectacular relapse.

In addition to the audition, I will be having a read-through of Act 1 on Tuesday the 23 November at the theatre starting at 8pm.  Do not worry if you cannot come to the read-through, this is simply a way of familiarizing yourself with the play before the audition.

If anyone has any problems attending the audition or has any questions please contact Sean Duxbury on 07976 111209 or use the contact form on this website.

Thanks

CADOS are very pleased to announce they've received a grant of £1000 from the Co-Operative Group Limited. The supermarket chain raised more money than expected in the last year, and offered the surplus to various charities and good causes across the country.

CADOS Chairman Ian Robinson says "We're delighted to be among the chosen causes, and the money will go to good use. Despite all the money we've spent in the last 18 months, there's still lots to do and every penny counts."

A spending review by the CADOS Committee has highlighted areas that still need work, but this money will go towards the costs of the Rehearsal/Youth Room. This new space was created by the recent building work but needs cabinets, flooring and a ceiling to make it usable.

Ian says "The public don't always see how squeezed we are and this room will give us more storage and room to rehearse. In time, it will enable us to put on bigger and better shows, and hopefully sneak a few more productions in a season."

Other areas highlighted by the group for work are the Foyer (including the "Empire" sign), a new box office system, refurbishment of the wardrobe department, and various finishing touches around the building (such as painting the outside of the back section). Longer-term there are plans for new toilets and maybe a change to the auditorium.

The new "Chorley Little Theatre" sign has been been kindly donated by Poppy Signs and will be going up soon. Keep watching Dole Lane!
