Are you, or do you know, an actor interested in amateur dramatics in the Worcester area?
We are looking for an amateur actor aged between mid to late 30’s to mid to late 50’s for St John’s Players’ next production which is about to start rehearsal – “Yes, Prime Minister”, written by the writers of the original television series Antony Jay & Jonathan Lynn.
We are looking for someone to play the role of Jim Hacker, the Prime Minister. The synopsis of the plot is as follows:
The UK is in crisis: debt is spiralling, unemployment is on the rise and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by Prime Minister Jim Hacker, is at breaking point. But salvation may exist in the form of a complex pipeline deal with the oil-rich country of Kumranistan that would entitle the government to a multi-trillion pound loan. When the Kumranistan Foreign Secretary makes a shocking request of Jim’s Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, moral considerations collide with the economic future of the nation. But how will Jim and his team – Bernard, Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby, and Special Adviser Claire Sutton – reconcile the two? Political machinations, media manipulation and an appeal for divine intervention ensue.
The play will be performed at the Vesta Tilley Studio at Worcester Swan Theatre 19th – 24th March 2018. Rehearsals are on Tuesday & Thursday evenings. If you are interested please contact the Director, Dave Scott on 01905 358811
