Botox Or Bust …. a new musical
A comedy spoof and caper about the antics, goings on and social jostling between ladies of a certain age determined to maintain their status and youth.
Auditions for our Rehearsed Reading will be held on:
Sunday 1 March from 11am at Langtry Manor Hotel, Bournemouth
The Reading will take place on Friday 17 April at 7.30pm (local venue) with final rehearsals in the daytime on the date.
Auditionees will be sent a short section of the script in advance and are asked to bring their own song choice with relevant backing track to the audition.
There will be a short rehearsal schedule in the run up to the Reading, and these will take place on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm until 9.30pm plus a couple of other TBC evenings to work on songs.
