Audition Notice for Nobody's Perfect

Auditions for Nobody's Perfect will take place in the Village Hall, starting at 8pm on Wednesday 6th February 2019.

Storyline: Single father Leonard works at home as a statistician. He has a rebellious daughter whose difficult behaviour is further encouraged by his “growing old disgracefully” father who has come to live in their home. Leonard writes a romantic novel which wins first place in a competition and a substantial cash prize. There is one snag! The writing competition is only open to women authors! Leonard manages to overcome this problem with hilarious consequences which involve his father and daughter in much subterfuge!

Cast:

Leonard - Middle aged

Dee Dee his teen aged daughter with “attitude”

Gus who is Leonard’s father and has been banned from a retirement home due to his outrageous behaviour

Harriet aged late 20s to 40s single, editor of a woman’s magazine

NB the ages are a rough guideline as make up can be a wonderful thing!

Further details and a script can be obtained from Maureen Gardner. (See under Contact tab for e-mail address.)

Leonard's father Gus meets Felicity Butters, a TV producer, in Nobody's Fool - a prequel staged by Meopham Players in May 2008

Move over Matt (in the Daily Telegraph), we have our own Matt.

Minimalist in style and contained within three panels, Matt's commentaries on Amateur Theatre are nevertheless full of life, beloved by our readers for their empathy, running jokes, satirical bent and resonant themes. (Well, that's what it says on the tin.)
