James Bond wanted in Warkworth

Calling all aspiring actors – Warkworth Theatre Group is looking for people to play parts in its next major production, two one-act comedies written by April Phillips.

The first, Snip, is about a man whose wife demands he has a vasectomy, while Bonking James Bond revolves around a woman whose husband is having an affair, which she deals with by escaping into a fantasy life.

There are still three key roles to be cast – the fantasy James Bond character, the cheating husband (said to be a boring, middle-aged accountant), and his female lover.

The shows will be performed over three nights at Warkworth Town Hall from November 9-11, and at two shows in Wellsford on November 17 and 18.

The theatre group is just coming to the end of a mini-tour around local retirement villages and RSAs with Oh, Clarissa, an extract from its last production, Netherland, about life in a retirement home, and it has also taken part in Mahurangi East Library’s Winter Words series.

As well as casting for its next production, Warkworth Theatre Group is also looking for people to help backstage with lighting, sets and so on. It meets for a fun night once a month at the Mezzanine Room in Warkworth Town Hall, with readings, workshops and other activities, where anyone can come along to join in, or just watch.
