Membership payments

Posted by Thespians | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 09-03-2019


Do you pay your Thespian subs by Standing Order?

If so, our bank details have changed, and we are asking you to alter them with your bank. Unfortunately we can’t make the alteration because with them being a Standing Order, you’re in control of the payment!

So, if you currently pay by Standing Order please email our Treasurer at DPO@huddersfieldthespians.co.uk and he will email you the new account details.

Also, if you currently pay by other means and want to pay by Standing Order, please email to say and we can help you make the changeover!

Many thanks,

Audition for Tons of

Posted by Thespians | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 15-02-2019


The Huddersfield Thespians are looking to cast the final play of their 99th Season – Tons of Money – which will be performed at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield from 11-15 June 2019 and will be directed by Derek Smith.
Open Auditions will held from 7.15pm on Wednesday 20 February at our HQ at Oakes Mills West, Huddersfield HD3 4DD.

Updated by Alan Ayckbourn from an original Aldwych farce by Will Evans & Arthur Valentine Tons of Money tells the story of Aubrey, an unsuccessful inventor who inherits a fortune that would revert to his cousin should he die.

As Cousin George is thought to have died abroad, the inventor has the brilliant idea of ‘dying’ so that he can resurrect himself as his cousin and avoid paying his enormous debts. Complications and farce arise in the form of George’s wife, an imposter and even the dead George.

We are looking for:

Aubrey Allington – mid 30s/40s. A slightly eccentric, well-spoken, well-dressed gentleman

Louise Allington – Aubrey’s wife

Benita Mullett – Louise’s elderly aunt, slightly deaf and very brusque in manner

Sprules, the family butler, 40s – needs two accents, one for addressing the family and guests, the other (Cockney?) for when he’s off-duty

Simpson, the parlour maid, a little younger than Sprules – with whom she is infatuated

James Chesterman, the family solicitor, 50s

Giles, the gardener, 60s – a man of few words with a rural accent (West Country or Norfolk?)

Jean Everard – a schoolfriend of Louise

Henery – a dubious colleague of Sprules

George Maitland – Jean’s husband returned from Australia

If you are interested in auditioning please contact casting@huddersfieldthespians.co.uk advising which part(s) you are interested in.

Digital Copies of the script are available, and hard copies will be available on the night.

We look forward to hearing from you – and don’t forget that Men of the World is on at the LBT from next Tuesday to Saturday (12-16 Feb)

Please feel free to share this information with anyone you may feel will be interested.

Good luck!
