As in previous years, the Butcher’s Guild are performing ‘The Crucifixion and Death of Christ’, a powerful piece that stages the events immediately leading up to Christ’s sacrifice, on a purpose-built waggon.
Presented by St Chad’s Church, on behalf of the Butcher’s Guild, this year’s interpretation of the play will be modern, vibrant, and colourful, while preserving the integrity and power of the original text and the story it tells. Katie Smith (Associate Director, Takeover 2017) will direct.
This is your chance to get involved!
We are opening up all roles – the soldiers, Jesus and his disciples, the thieves – and most roles are being cast gender-blind, so everyone is welcome. Performances will take place on Sunday afternoons of the 9th and 16th September, with an evening performance on Wednesday 12th September. Rehearsals will be held on most weekends throughout the summer.
Auditions will be run as group workshops, with some reading of the text. To reserve an audition slot, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
– Your name
– Whether you have performed in the ‘Crucifixion’ before
– Times you are free in the afternoons of the 21st, 22nd, 28th, and 29th of April
We also seek a Production Manager/SM (the role is flexible!) If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, contact us at email@example.com and tell us about yourself.
Any questions, just email us and we’ll be happy to help. We look forward to hearing from you!
