Langley Players prepare for murder

The Langley Players will hold auditions next week for their winter production Victoria’s House.

It’s not a whodunnit, but there is murder and there is mystery in this drama written by Fred Carmichael.

Set on the British coastline in the early 1900s, Victoria’s House tells the story of Neil Bannister, who kills his young wife and thinks he has committed the perfect crime, but is soon haunted by supernatural phenomena that are beyond his understanding.

Auditions will be held Sunday, Sept. 11, at 2 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. at the Langley Playhouse, 4307 200 St.

Directed by Angela Bell, rehearsals begin in September and the play will run from Jan. 19 to Feb. 18, 2012, with a possible holdover from Feb. 23-25.

It is an open call, and auditioners will be seen in the order of arrival.

Auditions will consist of reading sides from the script.

No appointment necessary, but people are asked to bring resumé and headshot to the audition.

All parts require British accents, which will vary from Cockney to Queen’s English.

Characters required: Five females, including one woman aged 50-65, one woman 35-50, two women 20-25 and one woman 19-30.

Four males, including two men between the ages of 25-40, one aged 40-45 and one aged 50-55.

Come prepared with a list of any and all dates that you are not available for rehearsal.
