Auditions are being held across north Essex for this year’s Mercury Theatre Young Company following the success of Quadrophenia last year.

The Colchester theatre is looking for more talented 16 to 25 year-olds to take part in this year’s production of the Wall.

Recruitment workshops for those interested in acting, singing and dancing will be held from 2pm to 5pm at Clacton Country High School this Saturday, the Mercury Theatre, Colchester on Sunday and at Rayne Village Hall in Braintree on April 5.

There will also be a backstage and technical theatre session on Saturday from 10am to noon and a recruitment workshop for musicians on April 6 from 2pm to 5pm, both at the Mercury Theatre.
