CALLING all teenage girls who would like to try out their acting wings - in period costume.

Windsor Theatre Guild - the town's prestigious amateur drama group - is looking for a young woman aged between 13 and 17 to play a leading role in their April production of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, to be performed at the Old Court art centre in St Leonard's Road.

She is needed to play Margaret, a spirited and cheeky early 19th century girl whose ambition it is to travel the world. Whoever gets to play her will also perform a short mimed sequence as another character - Eliza.

Sense and Sensibility transports the audience back to Regency England to tell the story of the lives and loves of the Dashwood family. Austen's humour is present throughout and the cast are already having fun bringing the colourful characters to life.

Now all they need is a Margaret.

Director Karen Hanley, said: "We are having a great time in rehearsals - exploring the era, playing with characterisation and the comedy of the piece. But we have a very large Margaret shaped hole! She is such an important part in the play and we are hoping to find an actress to take on this exciting role".
