Twenty Club holds open auditions for World War One play

The Twenty Club are holding open auditions on Thursday, December 12, at 7.30pm, in the  council chamber of Llangollen Town Hall (Parade Street entrance, opposite the bus stop) for a production of Peter Whelan's play The Accrington Pals.

There will be twice-weekly rehearsals from January, and the play will be performed from March 6-8,  2014 in Llangollen Town Hall, in the year of the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

The Accrington Pals is based on the true story of how the smallest town in England raised a volunteer force to fight in WWI, contrasting life at the front and in the 1916 Battle of the Somme with the women left behind.

There are five roles for women (to appear ages roughly 18 or 19 for two roles, mid 20s, late 20s and late 30s/early 40s for the other three) and five for men (to appear ages roughly 15, 19, 19, late 30s, and early 40s).

For more details ring the club secretary, Noreen Turner, on 01978 810623, or go online and visit
