Auditions for Book of the Month

Tempo Theatre is pleased to announce auditions for Book of the Month, a play by Basil Thomas, to be held on Saturday, March 4th, at the Belconnen Community Centre.

The orderly suburban life of a 1950's English town is turned on its head when the young daughter of a Member of Parliament writes a steamy bestseller, featuring characters obviously based on the local population. They begin to see themselves and their neighbours in a surprising new light.

Book of the Month will be directed by Jon Elphick.

Rehearsals will be held on Sunday Afternoons from 1pm to 4pm, and Tuesday and Thursday Nights from 7.30 to 9.30, commencing from Sunday 19th March

Performances at the Belconnen Community Theatre in late May and early June, concluding by June 4th.

If you would like to be involved please call Jon or Marian on 6254 3727
