Auditions/Workshops

The Huddersfield Thespians are celebrating their centenary and we have another special production to continue our 100th Season.
We will be presenting A Warning to the Curious, based on the ghost stories of M. R James adapted by our member, Alex Watkins – who so successfully adapted A Christmas Carol for the Thespians.
The play centres around three of M.R. James’ stories – Casting the Runes,There was a man lived by a Churchyard and Whistle and I’ll come to you my boy
