First day of rehearsals for Arcadia

It’s been a big day for us here at the Library Theatre as we’ve started rehearsing for Arcadia, our very first play at The Lowry. We’ve taken a studio space at the Zion Centre for the next month to rehearse the cast of 13 actors. We’re welcoming back some familiar faces and we have two young actors lined up to share the roles of Gus & Augustus.

Artistic Director Chris Honer said of the occasion “This is an exciting new chapter in the life of the Library Theatre Company and we’re very excited to be here at Zion”

For this production, our Deputy Stage Manager Rebecca Jenner will be writing about her experiences backstage in putting Arcadia together for a regular blog on this website.
