Wetherby Musical Theatre Group is starting rehearsals for its next play, a comedy called Out of Focus.

But there is one role that still needs to be filled.

“The role is the one of “Bob” who is quite a witty henpecked put-upon husband,” said Theatre Group spokesman Bev Lyn.

“He is trying to manage his relationship with his wife and his flirtatious secretary.

“The back drop for the story is about a village hall which has been overbooked by the vicar’s wife and therefore different groups of people are turning up as they think they have a booking.”

Wetherby Musical Theatre Group are looking for a man of an acting aged 40 upwards, to take on this interesting and funny role.

The play will be performed at Linton Village Hall from May 11-18.

No previous experience is necessary, just the desire to have a go, added Bev.

Wetherby Musical Theatre Group is a very friendly group and has a fully inclusive approach.

“This is a great opportunity to make new friends, have a lot of fun and build confidence,” added Bev.

Past productions include Nunsense, the Full Monty and Return to the Forbidden Planet
