Pace Egg Auditions

It's that time of year again where the Midgley Pace Eggers hold auditions in hope of finding some new and budding Thespians for this years Pace Egg extravaganza. 

The Midgley Pace Egg play is an old tradition within the Calder Valley, and has been performed for many years on Good Friday. The Pace Egg is based on the oldest play in the world, The Mummers Play.

The story is based around Saint George's triumphs and the whole play boasts his great champion status. Throughout the performance three challengers try to defeat Saint George (Bold Slasher, Black Prince of Paradine and Hector), who is a very cocky and mighty character. The play consists of eight characters, which this year was again made available to all ages, due to the school’s excessive range of performing talent. As always, it will be an all boys cast due to the ancient traditions of the play.

If you are interested in taking part in this years play, then auditions will be held this Tuesday, 3pm in the Ted Hughes Theatre at Calder High School. More info can be obtained from
