Auditions Monday 5 December 2022
Honley Players are holding open auditions for Amanda Whittington’s “Ladies Day”, a comedy about four hard working women from Hull on a day out at the races. The play is set on ladies day 2005 when Royal Ascot moved to York Racecourse, it follows and explores the life of women on a day out in a touching and humorous manner. During their day out their lives cross with 6 very different male characters who’s interactions provide humour as well as an opportunity to expose other sides to the ladies characters. Warm, uplifting and heartfelt, Ladies day is a honest feelgood play, as much fun to act in as to watch.
Female parts, we require 2 women to pass as being aged in mid-40’s to mid-50’s and 2 women being in their mid-20s.
Male parts, there are 6 male parts which can be played by 1 to 6 people. We are looking for a range of actors in age to match the female characters.

Originally, we were going to present Ladies Day back in 2020 sadly this was postponed by covid. Whilst some of the initial cast are still available some have other commitments or have moved away. Hence we are holding the further auditions.

Auditions will start at 7.30 pm everyone welcome, even if you unsure why not come along and see what is involved you may enjoy it. Show dates are 8 to 11 March 2023, rehearshals will start Wed 4 Jan.

If you have any questions please contact me via replying to this email, on our Facebook post or on my mobile 07426416661.
Thanks Laura

Please can anyone help us. Southgate theatre are looking for someone with a ground working machine to scrape level the rough ground (under the van in the photo), and then drag down the container and place it in position (it is currently empty).
Not a massive job for a JCB at all. Car park can be kept clear.

Urgent Notice regarding AGM tomorrow night please read.

Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to move the AGM out of the Auditorium. The meeting will now take place downstairs in what was the ladies changing room, please DO NOT enter the auditorium on entering the theatre.

Due to this change the space available will be limited, therefore could we encourage any new members to perhaps attend the Casting read through for the Pantomime on 11th October. Could we also ask as many current members as possible to attend that evening to welcome these new members, show them round the theatre etc and of course join in the read through to make it a really enjoyable evening.

Sorry for this last minute inconvenience and we offer our sincere apologies. We look forward to seeing you at either the AGM (tomorrow) or the Read Through (11 Oct 7.30pm).

Kind regards

Monica Plested

President Honley Players

Honley Players are pleased to announce this years casting of the Pantomime, Robinson Crusoe, will take place on Monday 11 October 7.30pm at Southgate Theatre. We are delighted to have Richard Skelton as our Director this year for this very funny Panto. We would love to see you there, old and new faces alike.

Never tried panto or are new to am dram? Come to the read through to see what its all about. The worse that can happen is you get to listen to an amusing script for the evening or you might find you love it and will be eager to join us as an actor or behind the scenes.

Look forward to seeing you there.

30/08/2021

Went to see the Cinderella pantomime today. It was amazing. My niece and nephew loved it.
Brilliant show this afternoon...can highly recommend. My little girl is still starstruck after Cinderella handed her a sweetie at the end!!! 🤩 Can't wait to come back. Thank you for a fun afternoon.
This theatre means a lot to me. I have enjoyed performing in shows ever since I was first brought here by a good friend of mine in October 2011. It really is a wonderful place to put on a show. The colourful sets make every production come to life, and I am fond of the colleagues I have worked with during the times I have been here. I am also fond of the village as I was a student at the high school and the eccentric shops and the generous people who live and work in the area. The countryside also makes you feel at home with it's beautiful greenery.
Hello lovely people. Southgate theatre is opening it's doors tomorrow night and inviting you all for a cuppa. Come down for a chat and look round the building, so you can see where we are at and how much there is still to do. Everyone is really welcome, we need your support and involvement. We are grateful for donations already made and would welcome help in other ways too, time, enthusiasm, skills...anything that can help us achieve our goal of getting this precious building a thriving community hub with drama performance at its heart.
Thank you so so much to the lots of lovely people who have already donated directly through our gofund me page which is amazing.
Come for a cuppa and chinwag.......Southgate Theatre, Monday 13th May between 7 and 9pm.
Wyrd Sisters
Just fabulous, funny, well acted, cracking direction an around enjoyable evening wel done Honley Players.
