Biggar Theatre Workshop Auditions for 'Boeing Boeing'
BTW’s next production is the classic farce Boeing Boeing, directed by David Bishop.
It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn't be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms.
The show will run 27 to 30 May with dress rehearsal on Sunday 24 May. Rehearsals will be Monday and Thursday and first rehearsal is likely to be February 2nd.
Auditions are open to everyone, BTW members and non members (non members who are offered a part will need to become members). We are holding a read through on Monday 19 January, 7.30pm in the Corn Exchange Auditorium and auditions the following Monday 26 January, 7.30pm again.
The read through is not part of the auditioning. It’s a chance for you to get a feel for the play and the parts in advance of the auditions and should be a fun night. If you can’t make the read through, don’t worry, just come along on the 26th.
The parts available are:
Bernard – architect and lothario, living in Paris - over 30
Berthe – Bernard's French Housekeeper - over 40
Robert – Bernard's old school chum - over 30
Gabriella – the Italian fiancée and air hostess - under 40
Gloria – the American fiancée and air hostess - under 40
Gretchen – the German fiancée and air hostess - under 40
Any questions, get in touch with Carole Davidson (Producer) on 01864 504278, email@example.com. If possible, let Carole know if you are coming along to the read through and or audition, but if you can’t, just turn up.

Biggar Little Cinema Presents 'The Railway Man'
The Railway Man is a British film, released in the UK in 2014, directed by Jonathan Teplitzky. It is an adaptation of the bestselling autobiography of the same name by Eric Lomax, and stars Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Hiroyuki Sanada and Jeremy Irvine.
During World War II, Eric Lomax (Irvine) is a British officer who is captured by the Japanese in Singapore and sent to a POW camp, where he is forced to work on the Thai-Burma Railway. During his time in the camp, Lomax is tortured by the Kempetai primarily for building a radio.
Years later and still suffering the psychological trauma of his wartime experiences, with the help of his wife Patti (Kidman) and best friend Finlay (Skarsgård), Lomax (Firth) decides to find and confront one of his captors. He returns to the scene of his torture after he has tracked down Japanese officer Takashi Nagase (Sanada) "in an attempt let go of a lifetime of bitterness and hate".
Admission is £6, with tickets available from Hamiltons Newsagents and at the door on the evening, subject to availabilty.
