A Chorus of Disapproval
By Alan Ayckbourn
Director - Martin Humphrey
Musical Director - Peter Theobald
To be performed at The Theatre Royal, Winchester
Wednesday 10th - Saturday 13th November 2021
(Currently at the pre-audition stage)
Like so many Ayckbourn plays, this is fun, thankfully it has little of the nastiness that can be found in many of his other plays. Apart from its obvious humour there are plenty of jokes and situations, which we as amateur artists can laugh at (ourselves).
A Chorus of Disapproval is about an amateur group performing The Beggar’s Opera – a musical stuffed full of 18th Century Folk Tunes, and tells the story of Macheath, his band of highway brigands, and his loves – all of this doxies. A Chorus of Disapproval runs its story parallel with the production of The Beggar’s Opera, telling the story of Guy, a recently widowed man who joins the production. He starts with a lowly character in The Beggar’s Opera, and through a series of events finds himself with the main part.
Most of the characters sing as their Beggar’s Opera alter egos, but we will also need 'chorus’ cast to augment the songs, and people the scenes.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Information Evening on 26th July 2021 where more detail will be provided.
