Audition notice for Fort Hemlock, by Emily Duberville
Second round of auditions for this play are scheduled for THIS SATURDAY, April 29th at 10am. Please contact Lynda Daniluk at email@example.com to schedule your audition.
The Story – Once upon a time, for real, in Smiths Falls the townsfolk really talked “turkey”. The annual turkey fair was one of their main sources of livelihood at the annual Turkey Fair. Even the young ones in town knew how important it was to their way of life. When a mysterious woman comes to town it quickly becomes apparent she is up to no good with some unscrupulous menfolk mostly from Macdonald’s Corners who are determined to make an income in illegal ways. The young ones learn of their plans and quickly set about to foil them. It all comes down to the battle at “Fort Hemlock”!
The production will run from Friday, August 18th, 2017 – Sunday August 27th, 2017. Show times are 7:30 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and the 2nd Thursday and 2pm for Sunday matinees. At present rehearsals are planned for Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday evenings @7pm. This is to leave the summer weekends as free as possible for those joyful cottage or camping times (for those who like to do that kind of thing!) Please make sure you are available for all dates (including rehearsals) and times.
Auditions will be held at The Station Theatre on Saturday, April 22nd at 2pm and Sunday April 23rd at 1pm . If you are interested in auditioning (even if you cannot attend these audition slots), please contact Lynda Daniluk @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Also please feel free to forward this notice to anyone you think may be interested.
