Budding actors are needed for a musical production.

Biggleswade Amateur Theatrical Society’s (BATS) Christmas production will be ‘The Wizard of Oz’.

Auditions are being held to fill lead roles and smaller speaking parts.

Adult and junior chorus members who enjoy singing and simple dancing are also needed as BATS is aiming for a large chorus for this sensational show.

The Wizard of Oz will be performed on January 23 and 24 January at Stratton Upper School in Biggleswade.

Performers aged 13+ interested in a speaking role are invited to come along to the Methodist Church Hall, Biggleswade on Monday, September 1 at 8pm where a group read-through of the script will take place, providing a great

opportunity to meet existing BATS members and find out more about the show.

Singing and acting auditions will take place on Monday, September 8 at 8pm for lead roles.

Anyone aged 13+ is invited to join a general chorus workshop on Wednesday, September 3 at 8pm. The final chorus will be cast after this evening.

For any juniors interested, those aged eight to 12 are invited for some fun singing and dancing on Wednesday, September 10 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm; again, for those wishing to join the show details will be given after this session. Junior rehearsals will be held every Wednesday from 6pm to 7.30pm.

BATS is also keen to hear from string and brass players (Grade 5 and above) as well as percussionists to play the beautiful score for this production. Backstage/production support is always needed!
