More budding actors are being sought to take part in a Project Play in Burnham-On-Sea next spring that aims to bring the local community together to perform a stage version of the classic TV sitcom Dad’s Army. 

Do you have what it takes to play one of the iconic characters such as Captain Mainwaring, Sergeant Wilson, Lance Corporal Jones or Private Pike? Or perhaps you’d like to experience the adrenaline of working backstage?

Regional drama group Project Play offers male and female roles, both on and off stage for anyone with a passion and enthusiasm for theatre.

A script read-through with the opportunity to find out more and ask questions will take place at Burnham’s Princess Theatre on October 24th at 7.30pm. Men are being sought for the roles.

Producer Matthew Rock explains: “Project Play is for anyone who enjoys being on stage,  acting or being part of a production in any capacity. Acting roles will be decided through our audition process, but we also invite would-be Directors, Stage Managers, Stage Crew, Costumiers, Assistants and basically anyone who would like to be involved in the project to get in touch with us.”

This is the first time that Project Play has visited Burnham-On-Sea. Its productions of The Vicar of Dibley (2018) and ‘Allo ‘Allo (2019) proved extremely popular in Yeovil, Frome and Wimborne – Dad’s Army looks certain to replicate the same success and bring the Burnham-On-Sea community together through a shared passion for theatre.
