"Hilarious.... The stuff of gleeful recognition." - London Evening Standard

With permission of Samuel French, The New Centurions present their first ever performance. Written by Alan Ayckbourn and staged many times over the years this play is the last play that was staged when The Century was still in Keswick before it's journey right here to Coalville. Join us as this new amateur theatre group of local talented actors and designers stage this remarkable play.

The New Centurions take their name from The Centurions who were the original group that toured with The Century Theatre in the 1950s and 60s. Paying homage to this unique and admirable group of theatre lovers, we bring their spirit back to life right here in Coalville, just up the road from their origins in 1948.

Have you got what it takes to become a New Centurion?

Under the direction of professional directors and artists, this amateur group are looking for members to begin a long and exciting journey. Based at the Century Theatre and meeting regularly you will make friends and join like minded creatives. Rehearsals for this show start in February and are held Sundays at the theatre. Auditions are January 27 (all day), 28 and 29.
