Liverpool Network Theatre Group will present Jefferson’s Tale on 5th, 6th and 7th June 2014 in the Lantern Theatre:
Written by Paul Tallant and Directed by Andy Kerr, this piece of new writing is a philosophical and comic science fiction. The story revolves around one character’s quest to retrieve his lost love, via the ability to journey outside of time, and a battle against forces of chaos and order.
Auditions will be held on Wednesday 12th March: 6:00-8:00pm and on Sunday 16th March: 6:00-8:00pm. No preparation is necessary, and the audition will form a workshop style, with some group reading and others reading individually.

Liverpool Network Theatre Group bring you Arthur Miller’s enduring masterpiece, The Crucible. Taking place during the Salem witch hunt of 1692, the play draws parallels with the McCarthy witch hunts which occurred during the playwright’s lifetime in 1950’s America.
Religion, family, ritual, youth and passion come together in this timeless story. The play’s themes of evil, persecution, perception, group hysteria and social judgement are still very much alive and relevant in Britain today and across the world.
Performed at the intimate Lantern Theatre Liverpool, this is a depiction not to be missed.
Friday 21st March 7.30pm
Saturday 22nd March 1.30pm and 7.30pm
Tickets: £7 and £5 concession.
Tickets available from: http://lanterntheatreliverpool.co.uk
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd
Hello all you lovely Networkians out there.
The Crucible is almost cast, however, we are still seeking someone to play the teenager Mercy Lewis. Mercy is an essential part of the group of girls living in Salem and this is a great role for any newcomers, so please don’t be shy.
Do feel free to spread the word to anyone who you may think is interested. We need someone in place ASAP. Please contact: email@example.com
Auditions for the Liverpool Network Theatre Group production of The Crucible will take place from 6pm and finish at 9pm at Hope St Limited, Arrad Street, Liverpool on Friday 10th January.
All are welcome. You do not have to be a member of Network or have attended any previous workshops to audition.
A quick head’s up before we all get caught up in the Christmas shenanigans, Liverpool Network Theatre Group will be auditioning for our next production, The Crucible in the first week of January 2014.
Please check back here for further updates on days, times and venue.
Following our recent open meeting, it has been decided with regret to raise our Workshop fees to £3 waged and £1.50 unwaged with immediate effect. This is due to the fact that at the previous level the cost of hiring the room on Hope Street was proving a drain on our finances, a drain which will be significantly alleviated at the new price.
The good news is that we are also introducing a Membership scheme open to all. Becoming a General Member will entitle you to a £1 reduction on the entry price for all Network events, both productions and events such as quiz nights and the Christmas Revue. The cost of membership is set at £5, and will come with a membership card.
As anyone who has been in past productions will be aware, being cast in one of our plays means that you have to pay “subs” to make sure we are insured. This has now metamorphosed into becoming a Performing Member, which is essentially the same as being a General Member but with the added bonus of having been on the stage! The cost of becoming a Performing Member is now set at £15 waged and £7.50 unwaged. Again, this is something we’ve been very reluctant to do but which rising costs have forced upon us.
Both forms of membership will last for a year. If you would like to become a General Member contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. However, there is no obligation to do so and it is worth stressing that Workshops remain open to all!
Tomorrow (22nd November 2013) from 2pm, Faye Christiansen will be speaking to James Kay at Vintage Radio about Network, the group’s history, present and future as well as much more.
You can listen along live here.
