Panto is so unlikely for the Players for 2020, but there is THIS!**CATS WORKSHOP AND AUDITION DATES!**

Behind the scenes, we have been working hard to figure out how we can get the ball rolling even whilst we're still unable to meet in person.

After lots of discussions, we have decided to proceed with both our Cats Workshops and Auditions via Zoom over the next couple of weeks. (further information on auditions will be explained at the workshop sessions and be published on here nearer the time!)

Wednesday 3rd June - Cats Workshop 1 at 8pm

Wednesday 10th June - Cats Workshop 2 at 8pm

Sunday 14th June - CATs Cast Auditions (to be a part of the show, not for supporting roles, these will follow later in the year)

We will share the Zoom link for the Workshops tomorrow so keep an eye out!

As always, please feel free to message the page if you have any questions!
