Exciting announcement from the Henley Players.
Our Spring 2020 production is the famous Italian comedy Saturday Sunday Monday by Eduardo de Filippo, and readings will be held on 29th and 31st October at Harpsden Hall at 8.00p.m., followed by auditions on 5th and 6th November, same time, same place. The show dates are 1st to 4th April 2020.
This will be directed for us by Teri Zambigli and is the final part of a project called Pane ed Eduardo (“Bread and Eduardo”), a documentary about Eduardo de Felippo’s legacy in the English-speaking theatre, which is being written and filmed by Teri. This is an exciting project for the Henley Players to be involved in and rehearsals will be filmed as will at least one of the shows. There is a big cast with parts for all ages so we are starting as soon as possible to cast the show. Please note that there may be further auditions later to complete the cast. We need as much support as possible so do come along and see what it is all about. Teri has asked us to make clear that no-one will be expected to assume an “Italian” accent, if your character has any short Italian phrases e.g. Bon appetite, buona note, buona sera, Tutti and so on, Teri will make sure you know how to pronounce them. Otherwise the action will be entirely in English!
