Autumn production

Thanks to everyone who came along to the play reading social on 17th August. It was good to see some old and new faces.

We are potentially planning a Murder Mystery for our Autumn production. If you would like to act in our Murder Mystery then you’ll need to be able to commit to:

  • Tuesday rehearsals from 7.30pm starting  on 4th September.
  • Technical rehearsal on Sunday 25th November.
  • Stage production on Friday 30th November and Saturday 1st December.
  • If required, there may be further rehearsals near to the production date.

The Murder Mystery may require some improvisation, please let us know if you would be comfortable with this.

If you haven’t expressed an interest already but would like to act in our Murder Mystery please email chelfordplayers@gmail.com or message us on Facebook 

We’re sorry but this will be limited to adult actors for this production.
