Gatton Community Theatre is looking for adults and children (8+) for its summer 2015 production.

The charity says they are looking for both experienced and inexperienced participants, to take part as actors or backstage help, in “Pippa’s Progress: A Pilgrim’s Journey to Heaven”.  Performances will be taking place at Gatton Park, Reigate during July 2015.

Gatton Community Theatre said:

Anyone who would like to take part, or interested in finding out more, should come along to Gatton Community Theatre’s free drama workshops on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd March 2015 at 2.00 pm at Gatton Hall, Gatton Park, Reigate, RH2 0TW. The production is open to all who would like to be involved. There are no formal auditions nor production or membership fees involved.

Adapted into a contemporary original new play by Gatton Community Theatre’s artistic director, Anna Thompson, from the book by Simon Parke, Pippa’s Progress will follow the journey of Pippa, a 21st-century Pilgrim. 

Anna says, “Times have changed since John Bunyan wrote his classic Pilgrim’s Progress; this moving and modern-day story will follow the original’s idea of a pilgrim’s journey to heaven, but this time through the anxieties and temptations of our secularised, multi-cultural society.  It is an enthralling story of spiritual journeying in our modern day, full of contemporary monsters, comedy and grace – all brought to life by Gatton Community Theatre in the wonderful dramatic setting of Gatton Park. My favourite part of directing GCT is watching the cast over the months; seeing them take the story and the characters, develop them and make them their own. Watching them develop as performers and come together as a true team.”  

Gatton Community Theatre specialises in innovative theatre arts.  It offers the opportunity for local audiences to experience highly original productions in exciting or unexpected venues and its policy of inclusiveness gives amateur performers, regardless of age, experience or background, the opportunity to produce outstanding theatre events which involve, engage and inspire as many participants from the local community as possible.
