Hook Norton Brass Band have an opportunity for a trombone player to join us, together with the Banbury Cross Players in putting on a stage production of the well known film Brassed Off in March next year. If you yourself are interested or know someone in the band that may like to take part then please drop me a line. The play runs at The Mill in Banbury from Wednesday 2nd March - Saturday 5th March 2011 at 7.45pm each evening and a matinee performance on Saturday at 2pm. The rehearsals are either at The Mill itself or in Adderbury, not very far outside of Banbury. The rehearsals which you would be required to attend are as follows: Sunday 9th January 2.30-4.30pm Sunday 16th January 2.30-4.30pm Sunday 30th January 2.30-4.30pm Sunday 6th February 2.30-4.30pm Sunday 20th February 2.30-4.30pm Sunday 27th February 2.30-4.30pm Monday 28th February 7.30pm - Technical Tuesday 1st March 7.45pm - Dress rehearsal Throughout the majority of the play a small group of circa 9 players will be mixed in with members of the cast to form the band as it appears on stage. The full band will come on at the end and give a short 10 minute concert at the end of the play. Parts of the rehearsal will require the cast members to be shown how to look as convincing as possible when they are on stage themselves - so a little bit of trombone coaching will also be required. Rehearsals for the cast have already begun and the band are looking forward to becoming more involved in the new year. This particular production has proved to be extremely popular with audience members at the season preview evening last month at which exerpts from each of the season's shows performed by the Banbury Cross Players are showcased. It looks set to be a great spectacle and alot of fun to be a part of.
