Happy New Year, from Ditchling Players!

We’d like to invite you, in collaboration with Mid Sussex Theatre Productions, to the virtual launch of our May production Death By Design – a comedy with murder!  We need four women and four men to take on this fast-paced farce. A variety of ages and accents are required for these caricatures. Cast members should be willing to workshop ideas to create a strong ensemble piece. 

If you would like to read the play synopsis and character descriptions, click here.

The show launch will be held virtually, by Zoom, on Monday 10th January 2022 at 8pm. You’ll be able to meet the directors, Debbie Dillon and Tracy Glover;  learn how we plan to audition by Zoom;  and find out about rehearsal and show dates. If you would like to attend our virtual launch, please click here to register your email address. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
