Peter Pan 2019 Summer Workshop
This is your chance to get a sneak peek at the Peter Pan script and hear what the plans will be for our upcoming production, prior to the read-through and auditions in September 2019. In the workshop, we will be looking at the characters, scenes, songs and will even put together a scene from the script. You'll also have the chance to ask our backstage and production crew any questions.
All acting and non-acting folks are welcome, and please invite anyone who is interested in joining Saffron Players.
When: Sunday 4th August 2019, 2pm-6pm
Where: Saffron Walden Town Hall
Note: Both current Players members and non-members are welcome! For non-members (those who did not pay subs during this past year or were not part of the most recent Alice in Wonderland production), a £5 charity donation will be required.
Please email Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you are interested in attending the workshop.
Come and be part of our Players family!
