Read through for this production will be on Sunday 22 February 2015 at Pokesdown Primary School, starting 7.30pm. Auditions will be a week later on Sunday 1 March 2015, same time and place. Please come to the audition with a song prepared. You can bring a backing track if you wish. I must stress that this is not a musical, it is a play with music so acting skills are equally as important as voice.

Brief Encounter

Arena Theatre presents Noel Coward, adapted for stage by Emma Rice's

Brief Encounter

Directed by Paul Nelson with permission from Samuel French

Noel Coward's Brief Encounter is remembered as one of the most haunting love stories on screen ever. Emma Rice, Joint Artistic Director of Kneehigh Theatre, has adapted Coward's classic 1945 screenplay, and the one act play Still Life, on which it was based, into a richly theatrical, imaginative and vibrant piece for the stage.
