Icarus: actors and helpers wanted


I wanted to let you know about a fantastic production coming to Easingwold on 15th & 16th April. Icarus is being performed by Fine Chisel, an award winning theatre company and folk band, in association with York Theatre Royal and On Our Turf.

Icarus will start in The Methodist Church with music, the audience will then parade through the Market Place as Icarus takes flight, the performance will end in the functions room at The George. It will be full of songs, music, dance and is suitable for all ages.

Fine Chisel are looking for performers to join the cast when the show arrives in Easingwold. They will hold a free workshop at The Galtres Centre from 10am - 4pm on Tuesday 15th. You can just turn up, but if you let me know that you intend to join in then I can give Fine Chisel ideas on numbers. You'll learn some of the sections from the show and then join Fine Chisel on the Tuesday and Wednesday evening to be part of a unique theatrical experience, the likes of which Easingwold rarely sees.

Tickets are just £7/ £5 for u16s and over 60s and are available from The Galtres Centre office.

I'm also helping to co-ordinate the event and could do with some volunteers willing to help steward the audience on the night and also to help be the backstage crew, so let me know if you may be available to help on the Tuesday or Wednesday (over 16s for these jobs)

I've attached the poster and really hope you can make it as from what I've seen it's going to be fantastic.
