Looking to try something new in 2017? – Why not get involved with community theatre.

Action Community Theatre are holding open auditions this month for cast members to help put on a production of Goodnight Mister Tom. The company, who are in residence at Terry O’Toole Theatre North Hykeham, are seeking not only cast members for the performance but also those interested in helping out behind the scenes, from creating costumes and building theatre sets to publicity and and chaperoning.

ACTion were pleased to be granted the rights earlier this year to perform the play Goodnight Mister Tom, by David Wood which is adapted from the well-loved book by award winning author Michelle Magorian. Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows young William Beech as he is evacuated from London to the idyllic English countryside, where he builds a remarkable and moving friendship with elderly recluse, Tom Oakley. All seems perfect until William is devastatingly summoned by his mother back to London.

Alison Duncombe, Theatre Development Officer and ACTion Committee Member commented:

“ ACTion is delighted to re-launch for 2017 with a production of Goodnight Mister Tom. It is a wonderful play and the group are very excited to be putting it on. ACTion always welcomes new members to join and  get involved in the fun of putting on a theatre performance, not just on stage but behind the scenes. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to give it a go!”
