A Comedy Musical by Tony Hudson


At Chidham and Hambrook Players we like to consider ourselves a group of friends who put on plays. Our rehearsals are a mix of a children's playground fun and a therapy session. If that sounds like your cup of tea, why not come along to the auditions and see what we're like outside of a performance.


Van Helsing is a fast-paced production with tight comedic interactions, set changes by the cast, a little singing and some improvisation when things invariably go wrong. Actors will need to attend all rehearsals due to the nature of this production. No preparation required for the audition, extracts from the script will be available.


Auditions will be held at Chidham & Hambrook Village Hall on Thursday 18th May 2023 at 7pm.

The entrance to the Village Hall is through the car park on the corner of Chidham Lane. For SatNav please use main Road, Chidham, Chichester, West Sussex PO18 8TP

Performance dates are Friday 15th & Saturday 16th September 2023.

Rehearsals commence week beginning Monday 19th June 2023 and will be at County Hall, Chichester for the first 5 weeks and then at Chidham & Hambrook Village Hall. 

Rehearsals will be twice a week, Mondays and Wednesdays. They will start promptly at 7.00 p.m. and finish around 9.30p
