A theatre company in Kirklees is staging Fawlty Towers ... but they still need a Basil for the starring role.
Millennium Stage Productions have a dilemma for their July production, Basil The Rat, as they have a Sybil, a Polly and a Manuel, but no-one to take on the manic role made famous by John Cleese.
Tony Sutcliffe from Millennium Stage Productions said: “Anyone who has seen the series will realise what a wonderful character Basil is – totally obnoxious, smarmy, bullying, larger than life itself. In fact, an absolutely wonderful part to play.”
If you fancy having a go at bringing the character to the stage in Batley in July then contact Tony or Cathy Sutcliffe, on 07949 283196 or 07939 227528.
Scripts can be made available upon request.
Rehearsals will be on Mondays starting on April 28.
