An open evening is being held to attract performers and volunteers for next year’s Belper Passion play.

Strutts Community Centre is hosting the event on November 19 from 7pm, where there will be auditions, readings and workshops.

Organiser, George Gunby, said: “We are looking not only for performers but also ‘extras’ and helpers of all kinds.

“We especially need anyone who will shout from the audience.”

Preparations are well underway for the 2014 performance after hundreds of people attended this year’s play on the streets of Belper in March to see the re-enactment of the Last Supper through to the Crucifixion.

Rehearsals will begin in January with Sheila Kay Sly as Director.
