Audition Notice for Out of Order by Ray Cooney
When Richard Willey, a government junior minister, plans to spend the evening with Jane Worthington, one of the opposition’s typists, things go disastrously wrong. Willey, a junior UK minister has to lie his way out of an embarrassing situation (in this case a planned adultery with a secretary) with the help of an innocent side-kick (the minister’s personal private secretary), who gets more and more embroiled in the increasingly tangled tale improvised by the lead character as events unfold. One of the “characters”, is a defective sash window that has a nasty habit of coming down on several characters’ head or neck as they attempt to enter or exit the hotel suite. Also, for several of the characters the costuming at times is very, VERY minimal – shall we say next to nothing?? Yes, we shall. Oh, and we cannot forget “The Body” – yep, one actor is needed to play a Body and this poor body is tousled around including being hung on a hook??
This is a true British farce and therefore it is very fast paced with a lot of comings and goings, in a word just plain “Crazy”!! So, if all this appeals to you (re-read the part about getting hit by a window!!) then this audition is for you!!
The production will run weekends from Friday, February 22nd, 2019 – Sunday March 3rd, 2019. Show times are 7:30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, and 2pm for Sunday matinees. Most rehearsals will be Sunday (time TBD), Monday and Tuesday or Thursday evenings depending on theatre space availability. The director is not available on Wednesday evenings. Please take note of this schedule as it is important that you are available for all rehearsal and show dates and times.
Auditions will be held at The Station Theatre on Sunday, December 2nd at 2pm and Thursday, December 6th , @ 7:30pm. If you are interested in auditioning, even if you cannot attend these audition slots please contact Lynda Daniluk @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text her at 613-286-0270.
