 Play-reading group

The next play-reading group session will be at Meridian School (Room B10) on Tuesday 13th September. This time we'll be reading the script of upcoming 2017 Panto "Red Riding Hood": your chance to preview the script, and have some fun along the way of course.

This is NOT an audition - it's simply a read-aloud of the script. You do not have to be involved with panto if you come along, and not coming along doesn't mean you can't do panto.

To find B10 at Meridian, use the side entrance door by the gym (on the left side of the main building), walk down the corridor past the gym, changing rooms and back of the hall. At the end (after two sets of double doors) turn left and go down the steps. B10 is just on the left there.

Play reading will start at 7.30pm sharp as we need to be out of Meridian by 9pm!
