Huntingdon Community Radio is set to re-launch its three-minute soap opera this year, with auditions now open for budding actors, producers and directors.

The fictional town of Huntsford will return to the airwaves with more than 20 cast members, featuring staff at hairdressers Wavelengths, love affairs, and a troublesome son.

Bill Hensley, managing director, said: “It’s got a lot of intrigue and there’s always a cliff-hanger at the end.

“We’re looking for people to audition for all the parts and also for a producer, director, and someone to manage the whole thing.”

Some 30 people work on writing the show, and episodes will air on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with an omnibus on Sundays.

The studio said: “This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who has ever thought that they might like to take up acting to try their hand. Radio is a great medium for the imagination to run riot, and being an actor in a radio drama is a quite a skill and great fun.”
