There will be a lot happening at the Bay Playhouse over the next few days.
The first event on Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17, will be auditions for Guys and Dolls, the Bay Theatre Players’ final show for 2018.
And, says director Lerae Davison, “we are looking for men”.
Lerae is looking for eight actors and three actresses to play the principal roles, but she also needs a lot of men and women to fill the ensemble roles.
Lerae says: “I know there are a lot of you out there that probably haven’t been in a musical for a while.
“Well, it’s time to get back on the stage. Guys and Dolls is built around men, with every man on stage a character in his own right.
“There are some great songs like Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat, Luck be a Lady and lots more. Age is no barrier”.

And, on Wednesday of next week (June 20), Play Readings co-ordinator, Tay Mugridge, will be hosting a reading of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
Tay says: “We hope this amazing story will make it onto our stage next year, so make sure you come along and have your say about this exciting opportunity”. For any inquiries please call Tay on 0419 127 679.
Tay would also like to remind everyone that there are only a few more monthly readings left before BTP’s annual planning meeting for 2019. “So if you want anything looked at for next season, please let me know,” he said.
Next Wednesday’s reading follows on from last month’s reading of The Hobbit.
“The afternoon involved donning a costume and planning a daring mission to reclaim stolen treasure from a dragon,” Tay said.
