Read Through and Audition Notice for 80's ... Best Years of our Lives (Musical)

It was a year ago on the last night of Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders when Sherrie Carslake spoke to me about her idea for a musical with a real feel good factor based around the 1980's, with a collection of 80's classics I took up the mantle and a month later a storyline and a few songs more saw 80's ... Best Years of our Lives finally come to life.

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 ....

We will be looking for a cast of 8 characters

4 Male and 4 Female

also looking for a backing cast for singing and dancing (no limit)
