Cunning plan to find cast for Blackadder show


Could your face be the next Baldrick, Queenie, Kate (aka Bob) or of course Blackadder himself!

After the successful production of Beauty and the Beast in January, the award-winning Leighton Buzzard Drama Group’s next production will be Blackadder II and open auditions will be on Wednesday, February 24 at the Leighton Buzzard Football Club at 7.30pm.

A spokesman said: “We are a friendly group who are pleased to welcome new members over the age of 16 and all acting ranges are welcome.

“If you are interested in being part of our next production then please take a look at our website for more information and audition pieces.”

And just to get you in the mood, here’s a extract from one ofthe Blackadder II episodes...

Hag: Two things, my lord, must ye know of the wise woman. First, she is a woman. And second, she is...

Edmund: Wise?

Hag: You do know her, then?

Edmund: No, just a wild stab in the dark, which is incidentally what you’ll be getting if you don’t start being a bit more helpful.
