If anyone else is interested in joining our chorus of Riverside Animals then feel free to get in touch and I will be more than willing to add you to the cast list. The adult chorus will also double up as my stage hands, moving scenery and props in between scenes, so you will have a lot to do!
I will be casting the Child Chorus of Weasels over the next few months, so feel free to get in touch if you know of anyone or your child is interested in being involved in the show.
Thank you again to all those who auditioned! We really enjoyed the process and were thoroughly entertained. I will be in contact with your scripts and CDs soon.
