Hello and a belated Happy New Year to all the members and supporters of Normanton 5 Towns MTS (old and new).
After a great Pantomime and the relaxing (really) Xmas festivities, isn't it great to be getting back into the good old rehearsal process again? Tuesday and Thursday at 19:30pm until further notice.
Anything Goes is a classic Cole Porter musical that we last performed nine years ago, and with the usual effort, enthusiasm and commitment that our cast and production team put in we are sure to have another amazing show to perform for the paying public of Normanton and the 5 towns area.
Our principles have been through the emotional stresses and strains of the audition process and we are pleased to announce the following people were cast:
Graham Hemingway as Billy
Paul Wilkinson as Moonface Johnson
Pippa Slater as Reno Sweeney
Margaret Melvyn as Mrs Harcourt
Charlotte Wilson as Hope Harcourt
Samantha Heyward as Bonnie
Bethany Beever, Chloe Butcher, Joanne Burgess and Trish Heyward as Angels
Malcolm Whatcott as The Ships Captain
John Kappes as the Bishop
Chris Littler Moore as The Purser
Sadly we had a Lord Evelyn who for personal reasons had to withdraw from the role, so we are on the hunt for both a Lord Evelyn and a Witney, let the production team know if you have any suggestions or know of any one suitable for either role.
For anyone who is unsure of our show dates, first night is Wednesday 24th May to Friday 27th May at 7:15pm with a Saturday matinee on the 28th May at 2:15pm. The venue has still to be confirmed…. watch this space or check either the web site or our Faebook page for updates, also we are sure our chairpersons e mail messages will be frequent and informative
