Calling young male actors who would like to channel their inner Regency gent.

New Era Players, a friendly and talented amateur dramatics group based in Wash Common, are seeking male actors who could pass for 25-40 years old, to play some principal parts in their upcoming March production.

“We are presenting an adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’, from March 14-21, and could do with recruiting a few romantic and comedic young chaps out there who fancy treading the boards dressed in the finest Regency gear,” said New Era member Sally Hall.

If you are interested, please contact the director, Lisa Harrington, on 07774 643254 or email lisa.harrington2@btinternet.com.

Check out the website neweraplayers.org for information about the society.

New Era Players is a small, friendly and very successful theatre club that was established in the Wash Common area on the south edge of Newbury in 1978. Their performances each year offer a wide variety of theatrical styles – just take a look at their past productions on their website.

“One of our important aims is to produce plays that are a challenge to both ourselves and our audiences, as well as putting on more traditional productions.

“We have strong talent in all areas of theatre; directing, acting and the technical aspects. The great joy of having a small theatre of our own is that we can develop performances in the actual space – very exciting for all concerned.”

They put on four productions a year – usually in March, June, September and December and normal rehearsal nights are Tuesdays and Thursdays, but these can vary depending on availability for each cast and director.

“We have an active social play reading programme for our members, where we read and enjoy plays we would not perhaps be able to put on – and enjoy the odd glass of wine!

“If you want to share the experience of performing on stage, share the creativity of set-building or costume design or just enjoy the teamwork in whatever direction your talents take you, please enjoy this website and join us using the contact details you will find here. Whether you are experienced or just have bags of enthusiasm, you can be assured of a warm welcome.”

New Era Theatre is located on the Andover Road in Wash Common. From the direction of Newbury it is on the right hand side, just in front of St George’s Chruch Hall.

Address: New Era Theatre, St Georges Community Centre, Andover Road, Newbury RG14 6NU.
