AUDITIONS FOR OUR FALL PRODUCTION

SATURDAY AUGUST 20TH and SUNDAY AUGUST 21ST.

2PM UPSTAIRS IN THE COMMUNITY CENTRE

It is not often that we find a play with an opportunity for a young male to become a new superstar. Frozen Dreams by Robert Ainsworth has just such an opportunity. We are looking for a young person who can pass for an 18-20-year-old to play the part of a young man with an intellectual disability.  This play will be adjudicated in November in our own venue for the Eastern Ontario Drama Leagues’ Spring Play Festival, the winner will go on to compete in the Theatre Ontario Festival to be held in Ottawa May 2017.

This Canadian play, which will be set in Ottawa, is a comedy/drama about a group of homeless men on Christmas eve. The young man is given a frozen turkey from a well meaning charitable organization, but the men have no means of cooking it.

We also need:

1 man, aged 40 -65

1 man, aged 60+

1 man, any age for a cameo role of a policeman

1 woman, aged 40 – 50

1 woman, early 60s

Auditions will be held upstairs in the Community Centre. Please enter through the side door and through the kitchen. Rehearsals will be three times a week starting in September. All are welcome to audition, which takes the form of reading from the script. No experience necessary. Production dates are November 18, 19, 20.
