Audition: Wednesday August 23 at 7.30pm in the theatre bar
Due to the cancellation of Goodnight Mrs Puffin, we are now mounting a production of Quartet, which was such a huge hit as a film, starring Billy Connolly, Tom Courtney, Maggie Smith and Pauline Collins. It is a comedy but there is a lot of strong emotion in there as well. The characters are all in their 70s but please do not let that put you off. It is easier to age up than to age down.
None of the characters are required to sing on stage.
Cecily Robson (alto) – very vivacious but with an unreliable memory, rather plump
Reginald Paget (tenor) – Very proper, somewhat neurotic, a former husband of…
Jean Horton (soprano) – a real diva, dismayed to find herself a “charity case”, slim, rather fixed in her ways
Wilfred Bond (baritone) – an ageing matinee idol, laconic, with a somewhat smutty sense of humour
