HUDDERSFIELD Thespians have selected the plays for their 2012/13 season.

And now they want to hear from people interested in acting and directing in the shows.

First up and already cast is Ladies Down Under by Amanda Whittington, which runs from October 9-13 at the LBT’s Main Stage.

A funny, heart-warming sequel to the enormously successful Ladies’ Day, it follows the lasses from Hull on their adventures down under.

Gritty drama Misery, by Simon Moore, based on the Stephen King novel, will run in the LBT’s Cellar from November 20-24.

The Thespians have already cast the male role, but are looking for a female in her 40s to appear alongside him.

Then it’s fun and frivolity all the way when the Thespians stage the hit Calendar Girls, by Tim Firth, at the LBT’s main stage from January 29 to February 2.

When Annie’s husband John dies of leukaemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room.

They manage to persuade four fellow Women’s Institute members to pose nude with them for an alternative calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence.

For Calendar Girls the Thespians need 10 females willing to bare all and four male actors.

From March 12-16 they stage Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen at the LBT Cellar.

Hedda Gabler, daughter of an aristocratic general, has just returned to her villa in Kristiania from her honeymoon. Her husband is an aspiring, young, reliable (but not brilliant) academic who has combined research with their honeymoon. It becomes clear that she has never loved him but has married him for reasons pertaining to the boring nature of her life.

The reappearance of Tesman's academic rival throws their lives into disarray.

They need to cast three male and four female parts.

Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads will run from April 30-May 4.

Talking Heads is a series of dramatic monologues originally written for BBC television by Alan Bennett (pictured) in 1988 and later adapted for stage.

There are six monologues, and the Thespians will present three each evening on April 30, May 2 and a matinee on May 4.
