AUDITION NOTICE FOR BURLOAK THEATRE GROUP
As a vicar's wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. Now, after the death of husband Bardolph, she can enjoy her new found freedom. The return of her eccentric missionary sister, Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations forces Grace to confront some unwelcome truths. Beautifully written by Richard Everett, and set in a lush English vicarage garden, this play will have audiences laughing one minute and tearing up the next. Bring tissues!
The play runs for four performances at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, with three evening performances on January 25, 26 and 27 plus a matinee performance on January 28.
Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled for Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons, but may be adjusted once the cast is in place. Rehearsals are anticipated to start early November with a short break at Christmas. The Director is Rikki Wright.
Auditions will take place at BurlOak’s Theatre studio at 1290 Speers Road, Unit 12, Oakville from9.30 a.m. on Saturday, October 21 with callbacks on Sunday October 22, if necessary. A cold read from the script will be used for the audition.
