Have you ever been to see the York Mystery Plays and imagined how fabulous it would be to perform in them? Well here is an opportunity to do just that.
You are cordially invited to a York Mystery Play Presentation at the Market Weighton Social Club on Thursday 19th April, 7:30pm.
Shiptonthorpe based group, Ravens Morris, have been commissioned by the Merchant Adventurers to stage a 20 minute production of Judgement Day at this year’s York Mystery Plays. They would love Players members to take part in their fabulous carnival version of this medieval Biblical play, one of eleven that will be performed to large cosmopolitan audiences.
The performances will all take place in September 2018:
Four times on two Sunday afternoons (September 9th and 16th), different outdoor locations around York centre
Wed 12th September evening – Shambles Market
A final show is yet to be confirmed in the Merchant Adventurers Hall (provisionally Friday 21st September evening)
There are lots of different ways to get involved for adults and children, friends and family alike:
As a performer: actors, singers, dancers, musicians and puppeteers
As a non – performer: cart pullers, stewards, procession walkers in fantastical attire.
Costume and Construction
Rehearsals will be held locally from June(ish) onwards. They know you’ll likely be on holiday during this period but that’s OK, it won’t prevent you from taking part in any role.
Interested to find out more? Then do come along to the Social Club on Thursday 19th April, 7:30pm when Director Alan Heaven will reveal more in a presentation and happily answer any questions you may have.
Much appreciated if you could let us know if you are planning to come along so there are sufficient information packs and application forms for all. Do contact us if you’d like to be involved but can’t make the presentation, and we’ll make sure you are kept in the loop. Either message on here or email hlawley@live.
Hope to see you there!
