BUDDING performers will audition for Hartlepool Stage Society’s next production.

Auditions for Acorn Antiques! The Musical will be held this weekend to fill the starring roles in the hilarious show.

The show, written by Victoria Wood, is based on the 1980’s comedy sketch of the same name based around the antic of an Antique shop with deliberately cheesy story lines and a wobbly set.

The stage society held a read through of the script last week and auditions will be held on Sunday afternoon.

They will be take place in the Stage Society’s hall on Glamorgan Grove, Throston and leaders say new members are always welcome.

Acorn Antiques! The Musical comes hot on the heels of Hartlepool Stage Society’s last successful show Let Us Entertain You which was held at the Grand Hotel in Hartlepool.

It raised a grand total of £1,069 through ticket sales after a two night stint.

The stage society’s new junior section have also started rehearsing for their next production, Cinderella and Rockerfella.

Both productions will be staged at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre,Raby Road, Hartlepool, in November.

Before then you can catch the talented performers at Holy Trinity Church’s annual summer fair in Seaton Carew on Saturday, July 6, from 1pm to 3pm.

The society recently launched a separate junior section after seeing a surge in young members in recent years, following the phenomena of High School Musical and Glee.
