Thorpe Players need a guitarist for their new show

A drama group based near Norwich is in need of a guitarist for its latest show.

In a musical first for the Thorpe Players, the group has had a special musical score written for its September production of Moliere's show Don Juan.

But while it has the singers and a percussionist to take the music from the page to the stage, it is still searching for a guitarist.

Show director Jim Green explained the music had been composed by his son Andrew, a music graduate, but he was unable to take part in the performances because he was away during the show's run at Roxley Hall. Mr Green said: 'This is very much a first for us. We have never had somebody write music for a show for us before. We are looking for a guitarist to help us push our creative boundaries, and do something we have not done before. We are looking for someone who can read music and is a competent musician.'

Written by 17th-century French playwright Moliere, Don Juan is a comedy about the antics of a serial Casanova.

'Don Juan attempts to marry almost everybody he sees while everyone else tries to convince him this is not a particularly good idea because it upsets people!' Mr Green said.

'The show is great fun and has lots of great characters.'
