Auditions for Last Tango in Whitby Announced

This play tells the story of a group or friends who always go on holiday together each year for a week of drinking, dancing and living it up at the seaside. This year however is a rather awkward difference; Pat is holidaying for the first time since the death of her beloved husband Arthur and the rest of the party are not sure how is the best way to cope with the situation. But Pat is determined that Arthur would want her to try and have a good time and she is going to live up to it.

Main Characters

Most playing ages are 50 plus but are suitable for anyone from 18 to 80 who are prepared to “age up”. See the registration page for full details


Many more roles both speaking and non-speaking some can be doubled up; originally we had 30 in the cast. There are old time dance routines involved mainly during scene changes which are undertaken by the cast and mainly consist of chairs.

If anyone is interested in doing some choreography, not strictly come dancing level I would be very pleased to hear from you. There is one short tap dancing scene for two women.

Everyone is welcome; please don’t think you’re too young or too old to be in this play.
