WE’RE BACK!

It feels wonderful to be able to put out a casting call for not one but TWO upcoming Chester Little Theatre productions.

Our first auditorium production of next season will be Sue Townsend’s heartfelt comedy, BAZAAR AND RUMMAGE!

Three severely agoraphobic women have left their houses for the first time in years and made it to a jumble sale. The sale has been organised by their social workers, the young trainee Fliss and the ex-agoraphobic volunteer Gwenda, though as the afternoon progresses, the distinction between them and the anxious people they are supposed to be looking after becomes less and less clear.

For this production we’re seeking FIVE WOMEN (playing ages from 20s up to middle aged).

And in our first studio production of 2021, we have the premiere of a brand new fantasy drama written by our very own, Andy Hutchings (The Chinese Room, Spectrum) – THE NEXT DR COSMOS!
 
Alice Knight is a woman with a secret. Once she lived a double life as Doctor Cosmos, the most powerful super-hero in the known universe, but now her peaceful retirement is threatened by someone who has deduced her secret!

This production was originally cast and scheduled for our 2020 season, and while we’re delighted the majority of the team are able to return, we are on the search for TWO WOMEN (playing ages 20-30 and 60-70 respectively).
