Auditions added for Langley Players spring production

Langley Players are holding additional auditions for their spring production of Timothy Findley's The Stillborn Lover.

Auditions will take place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Dec. 6 and 7 at the Langley Playhouse, 4307 200 St.

Directed by Lou Lou Leroux, the play, set in the 1970s, tells the story of a Canadian diplomat who is suddenly recalled to Ottawa.

His long-time friend is on the cusp of winning his party's leadership campaign and the prime ministership. However, the real story lies in their history, which is poignantly revealed as the characters are forced to unravel the past. With the past, come revelations that set off loyalty struggles, emotional confusion and misplaced trust.

Required are: two men in their late 20s to 40s to play Jackman, an RCMP superintendent, and Cpl. Mahavolitch, his junior partner. The second role requires partial nudity — athletic body;

Two men in their 50s or 60s to play Harry Raymond, Canadian ambassador to Moscow and Michael Riordon, Canada's Minister of External Affairs, touted as the next party leader;

One woman in her 20s to 30s to play Diana Marsden, a recently divorced lawyer. And two women in their 50s or 60s to play Marian Raymond and Juliet Riordon.

Actors are asked to bring a resumé and headshot, if available as well as a list of dates when they are not available. Rehearsals will be held three times per week.

These are open auditions for a non-equity production. Successful performers must all be members of Langley Players ($15 fee) prior to the first rehearsal. This is a festival play and actors will be required to continue for additional performances, not only to the Theatre BC Fraser Valley Zone Festival hosted by the  Langley Players on May 20, 2012, but, if successful, to Theatre BC’s Mainstage in Kamloops in the summer.
