MS Reader-Actors Wanted (Cardiff)

This is acting the MS way. Readers do not have to remember lines or move around the stage and can be seated throughout – we’ll even provide the chairs. All you have to do is read the script aloud, with a bit of emotion. I want to demonstrate that having MS doesn’t mean we’re useless. I can still write, who’s up for a bit of performance reading?

The plays were written for Radio 4 (30 ~ 45 mins), considered for broadcast, but (frustratingly) not used because something already in production has a similar theme. We’ll also include a few short pieces, to vary the pace a bit. The subjects vary from Archaeologists to a flight to Mars and all stations in between.

We’ll perform in Cardiff on Saturday 08/06/19, so you need to be there on 7th (rehearsals) and 8th. Cuppas, fruit and lunches provided. Tickets will be on sale (cheap) beforehand and on the door, raising Society funds. We’ll also be recording to produce professional-grade CDs afterwards.

Casting is really simple. Ages are approximate and accent rarely matters, just tell me how you sound! If you want to play a part (or parts), please PM me here or on Facebook ( and say who you’re interested in. Friends / family members welcome.

@granma – Great, you’re just the sort of person we like! We’ve got people with no experience and some who have – which will work great. Um, Ineed to work out how to send a message on here. :b

Very simple. Click on their profile; send a friend request. Once the request is accepted you are able to send private messages to that person.

On a side note, read your Facebook page; loved the cartoon photos… 😉

@meg_kingston , Private Messaging is quite straightforward and is accessed via a Member’s Profile page. This can be accessed wherever their username is displayed as a link.

On their profile page, there are options to “Add Friend”. This is a prerequisite as you need to have an acknowledged Friend Request before the “Private Message” option is enabled.

The “Private Message” Option will display a simple message page for you. 😉
