Read Throughs for 80's ... Best Years of our Lives (Musical) start Monday July 3rd

June 24, 2017



This is a musical with a real feel good factor based around the 1980's, with a collection of 80's classics.  The read throughs are 7.45pm on Monday, July 3rd and Tuesday, July 4th with auditions two weeks later - see below.


We will be looking for a cast  of 8 characters - 4 Male and 4 Female and also looking for a backing cast for singing and dancing (no limit)


The storyline is set in in a nightclub in Reading called Rebecca's (in the 1980's there really was a nightclub, opposite Reading station entrance next to Thames Tower)  main characters and storyline revolve around 4 people, Eileen, Billie Jean, Mickey and Frankie ( now to guess what songs they are based on !!!) and shows their school day memories in and around Reading. Many references that people living in Reading in the 80's will easily remember. But this Love story has a twist ....
