Curtain Up! tells the story of five women – the daughter, ex-wife, second wife, mother and secretary of deceased owner Michael – who inherit equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and their plans to bring it back to life again.
All manner of fund-raising schemes are considered as they try to put their differences aside to make the theatre a success. Their most ambitious scheme is to hold a concert featuring local talent and a world-famous star (Liza Minnelli) who agrees to appear for no fee!
However, their plans go awry and it's a race to keep their audience from guessing the truth of the matter. A fast-paced and very funny comedy.
A read through of the script will be held at 8:00pm on Tuesday 13 February at the Progress Hall, Admiral Seymour Road, London SE9 1SL and auditions on the followong Tuesday. Auditions are open to both members and non members of the Company.
