Pygmalion: Holding out for a Higgins

As our contribution to the Abbots Langley Festival of the Arts, our non-singing production of Pygmalion is in the midst of being cast. However, due to a very full festival programme, we find ourselves looking, as so many people are, for a good man.

We would love to hear from anyone who can commit to rehearsing Tuesday and Thursday evenings up to our performance week, 29 June to 5 July 2014. While primarily seeking male actors, we would also love to hear from anyone who is interested in becoming involved with the group on stage and behind the scenes as well.

We will be holding final auditions for Pygmalion on Monday 14 April.

So what about it then… fancy giving it a go? Maybe you would just like to know a bit more? Please just get in touch by emailing abbotsplayers@gmail.com. If you can’t make the audition but you are interested in either role, please contact us to make alternative arrangements.

The roles

Henry Higgins
Male, 40s
(Large role)
Highly intellectual bachelor, selfish and self-obsessed – but not unlikeable. Childish and downright rude in equal measure.
ON STAGE ALMOST ENTIRELY THROUGHOUT THE ACTION

Alfred Doolittle
Male, 40-60
(Medium role)
The show stealer. Common, crafty and devious, but the most remarkable philosopher. Appears twice and commands the space each time.

Pygmalion: The ALP learn to talk proper

For our next production, we will be staging one of George Bernard Shaw’s best loved plays: Pygmalion

Presented as part of the Abbots Langley Festival of the Arts, the production is in the midst of being cast – get in touch if you’re interested in getting involved on stage or backstage.
