Animated Objects Theatre Company is running filming and casting sessions for volunteers along the coast as part of ‘The Odyssey – An Epic Adventure on the Yorkshire Coast’, including one at Bridlington Spa.

The completed films will tell Homer’s ancient story of the Trojan Wars reinvented to be set in the future – with the region’s stunning coastline as the dramatic backdrop.

Lee Threadgold, at Animated Objects Theatre Company, said: “We’re currently looking for people aged 16 and above and no previous experience is required – just the enthusiasm to be part of something involving the wider community. If you’d like to be involved, filming sessions will taking place at the following venues:

“Withernsea’s Meridian Centre – Wednesday, September 15.

“Bridlington Spa – Thursday, September 16.

“Hornsea Floral Hall – Friday, September 17.”

The timings are as follows:

5pm to 6.45pm: Speaking parts – the theatre company looking for people to play Goddesses and Gods; Kings and Queens and heroes and heroines.

7pm to 8pm: Warriors and Soldiers of Troy – the company needs women and men who are happy to get armoured up and bring some physicality to recreate some iconic scenes from the epic battles.

Mr Threadgold added: “There are some incredible characters in the story and plenty for everyone to get stuck into! Think Lightsabers and lasers rather than togas and swords.

“Email [email protected] or telephone 01723 378906 if you would like to be part of the adventure and let us know you’re coming along.

“We’d love to hear from you.”
