And we’re off!

1 Feb

2013 is off to a great start for La Touche Players. We were overwhelmed with the interest and talent in our recent auditions. Director Barry O’Kelly had a tough job to do to decide his cast from about 60 people. Thanks to all who came along to read for a part. 

We have our cast and rehearsals have started. Meanwhile, if you’d like to help out backstage (tasks include set deisgn, sourcing props and costumes, lighting and sound, as well as publicity and promotion) our first production meeting for the play takes place on Saturday 16th February at 11am in the Teacher’s Club. If you want to get involved, please email latouchesecretary ‘at’ gmail.com and we will add you to the crew mailing list. Thanks!
