Swan Theatre Amateur Company is looking for a cast for their latest production of Little Women to perform on the main stage at the Swan Theatre next February.
The story of Little Women is a classic novel by Louisa May Alcott. This adaptation for the stage is set during the turmoil of the American Civil War and follows the March Family (Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy) as they struggle with the absence of their father as well as their declining social status into poverty.
Director of the production, Curtis Fulcher, said:
“No previous acting experience is needed. Swan Theatre Amateur Company are a friendly bunch, and it gives budding local actors the chance to tread the boards on a professional stage”.
Scripts of the play can be borrowed before the audition from Bygones of Worcester, Cathedral Square.
The audition day will involve some reading from a script, no preparation is needed. The cast for Little Women needs four women aged 18-35, three women aged 50 plus, two men aged 50 plus and two young men aged 18-35.
