Actor for Willy Russell play needed in Spalding - but they must be able to do a Liverpudlian accent




Are you a budding or experienced actor who can do a good Liverpudlian accent?

If so, Spalding Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society (SADOS) needs you.

The team, which rehearses at 'The Shed' in Monkshouse Lane, Spalding, will stage the Willy Russell play Stags and Hens in November - but can't find anyone to play the role of 'Billy.'

Callum Forman, who is co-directing the comedy along with Zack Colam, said: "We are looking for someone able to do a good Scouse accent and be around the age of 20-35 years old.

"The play is set in a Liverpool club in the 1970s, following a group of lads out on a stag do.

"The bride and groom's party end up in the same club at the same time, trying to ignore each other."

As the story continues the bride begins to question whether she wants to marry her husband-to-be after all.

"It is quite funny," Callum said. "It's a lovely little play. I am playing one of the parts and am also directing with Zack.

"But we are struggling to find a Billy. He is one of the stags and quite a naive one of the group, but is very keen to try to please Eddy who is the leader of the group.

"He is not what you would call 'dim-witted' but some of the things he says are daft or a bit silly.

"There are people who are keen to play the part but have not come forward because of the age and are probably put off because of the Liverpudlian accent."

People interested in the part would need to be available to rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm in Spalding.

The play will be on at the South Holland Centre from November 20-23.
