A new theatre company based in Wales will be launching its first production in Barry this April ... and they are looking for local volunteers to join in!

Day To Go is an extraordinary site-specific play produced by PaperTrail, a new theatre company founded by writer and director Bridget Keehan, who has spent many years living in Barry.

The audience journey together on a bus to various sites around the town, and along the way hear stories inspired by the people and places they visit.

Various characters will appear en route: the abandoned bride, the woman who can't stop swimming, the former Butlins Redcoat who has a confession to make and even the patron saint of Barry himself.

The theatre company Papertrail are looking for 20 volunteers who would be available for a few Saturdays for the rehearsals and performance from March 1 until April 12, and some taster workshops in February.

Creator of Day To Go, Bridget Keehan said:

“I'm looking to recreate Bindles Ballroom on the seafront with a ballroom dancing sequence and am looking for older people in particular to get involved, especially those with any recollections of Bindles. I'm also on the lookout for former redcoats. You don't need to have any experience. The taster workshops will give you free ballroom dance lessons, free refreshments and will be lots of fun!”

Please contact Bridget Keehan no later than Friday, February 21, on:

07903 105529 / bridget.keehan@papertrail.org.uk

There is no audition process. Further information about the play can be found at www.papertrail.org.uk.

Tickets for the performance in April are on sale now from Memo Arts Centre Barry and Chapter Arts Centre.
