The award winning Epsom Light Opera Company started 2012 with sell out audiences for their award winning production of Titanic the Musical in April, but casting their next big show, Half A Sixpence has not been so easy. "After such an amazing experience with Titanic, many of our regular actors wanted a break," reports Chairman Paul Featherstone. "This has left us with one crucial character part uncast in this wonderful feel good musical."

Based on the novel "Kipps" by H G Wells, this musical focuses on Arthur Kipps' rise from shop boy apprentice to high society after inheriting a large.  Along the way we meet many wonderful and colourful characters, but one still to be cast is the character role of 'Young Walsingham.'  This supporting role is a treat to play, he has a couple of  songs to sing with other principal characters and is involved with other songs through the show.

Half A Sixpence is on at The Epsom Playhouse from Tuesday 9th to Saturday 13th October 2012, the Society rehearse on Mondays and Wednesdays in the Tadworth area.

"We would love to hear from any male actors with experience singing on stage who thinks they would be up for this part as soon as possible."  Although there are no audition dates, the society would be extremely happy and accommodating to meet with anyone interested, just get in contact with the society's Chairman, or on 07736 338020.
