YOUNG men are needed to take part in a musical at the Gala Theatre in Durham.

Durham Musical Theatre Company is staging Chess from May 19 to 23.

It follows on from their multi-award-winning, sell-out production earlier this year, of Evita.

Chess tells a heart-rending story of love and political intrigue with a score written by the ABBA duo of Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, with a libretto by Tim Rice.

It includes the hit numbers: I Know Him So Well, One Night in Bangkok, Anthem, Pity the Child, Heaven Help My Heart and Someone Else’s Story.

Singing rehearsals are currently on Tuesday evenings at Plawsworth Community Centre.

Anyone interested can contact the production secretary Delia McNally on 0191-536-3572 for further details.
