Pitching Results 2011

Following the committee meeting on Monday 6th June, directors pitched plays to committee for the first semester next year. It was a very difficult decision in all, but we are pleased to tell you all that the following plays have been chosen for next term:

'The Accidental Death of an Anarchist' directed by Katy Syme

'Apologia' directed by Lauren Mooney

'Matilda Liar!' directed by Martin Poile

'Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead' directed by Melissa Farrell

These are 4 fantastic plays, with a variety of different roles and characters up for grabs. There will also be several other opportunities to act/direct and everything else with many of the other projects that are currently being looked into by the Committee. We look forward to seeing you all at auditions next term!
