Come and join the Cheshire Cats cast and production team for this fund raising 2020 production!

Auditions will take place on Sunday September 15th 2019 at 11am in The Forum Studio Theatre, Chester CH1 2BH. No preparation is necessary. Please turn up on time to collect auditon pieces on the day

Production dates: 4th – 7th March 2020. Venue: Emlyn Williams Theatre. Theatr Clwyd. Mold. Director: Gail Young

Our audiences will follow the antics of a group of girlfriends as they participate in The London Moonwalk and stride across the capital in record time in their decorated bras and posh new trainers. But one of the team doesn't seem to meet the physical criteria!
Their London Moonwalk is a cross between a girls' night out and a real mission to support a cause close to many hearts - with plenty of laughs and a few tears along the way.

Since it’s 2005 premier, visit to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2006, and subsequent publication by Samuel French, this very local and highly successful play has been performed over 300 times – travelling abroad and the length and breadth of the UK – with all performing groups following the example set by the ‘Cheshire Cats’ in raising funds for their chosen charity.
