News from the South Simcoe Theatre
This page includes information on upcoming auditions, on our Annual General Meeting, on ordering tickets and on the deadline for submissions for Four Play: A Show Case of Readings.
AUDITIONS – The Fox on the Fairway
When:Wednesday, October 1st, 7pm to 9pm and Wednesday October 8th, 7pm to 9pm
Where: At SST's home, The Old Town Hall in Cookstown
Why: Becaaauuse - it's going to be so much fun! Fox is a contemporary take on traditional farce - a modern setting (a golf club house), but lots of doors and confusion and young love and silliness with the general goal of hilarious frivolity for audience and cast/crew alike!
Who: For the cast we need: 2 middle-aged (ish) men; 2 middle-aged (ish) women; 1 1 young (ish) man and 1 young (ish) woman.
For the crew we have: Candy Pryce directing and Bob Buckley producing
What: If you have a piece you'd like to do at the audition, that would be great - a monologue, a bit of a poem or novel you enjoy, something you wrote yourself, a re-enactment of your favourite battle in the war of 1812 - you get the idea. If you don't have a piece, that's fine too, 'cause we're also doing readings from the script! Yay!
How: Call me (Candy), baby! Here's my number: 705-728-9184 or my cell 705-828-3311
What else: Please contact me if you're interested even if you can't make these dates.
Note: Ability to play golf is not required. Ability to run around in circles an asset.
