More news, no ads


Saffron Walden Musical Theatre Company (SWTC) has made a casting call for a young actor to take a key role in its forthcoming production of Kinky Boots.

The award-winning community group plans a show each March at Saffron Walden Town Hall.

For 2022, the company has picked a production with music and lyrics by Girls Just Want To Have Fun pop singer Cyndi Lauper, based on Harvey Fierstein's book.

It tells the story of Charlie Price. Having inherited a shoe factory from his father, Charlie forms a quirky partnership with cabaret performer and drag queen Lola to produce a line of high-heeled boots and save the business.

SWTC is on the lookout for a young male actor, aged 8 to 12, to play the youthful version of Simon/Lola in its centenary production.

A spokesman said: "Our young Simon/Lola will be able to move and sing well and will be playing the younger self of Deejay Latchman. This is a fabulous opportunity for a local youngster to take part in a brilliant production."

For further details, please contact the Kinky Boots Team at swmtcyg@gmail.com.

The production runs from Tuesday March 8 to Saturday March 12, with performances each evening plus a Saturday matinee. Tickets are available from Saffron Walden Tourist Information Centre (booking fee applies) or online from www.thelittleboxoffice.com/swmtc/.
