Gallery 7 Theatre holding auditions for Halo

Auditions for Canadian comedy/drama, Halo, Set for Oct. 25

Gallery 7 Theatre in Abbotsford is holding open auditions for its January/February production of Josh MacDonald’s Halo on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the theatre’s administration and rehearsal hall, #100 – 34595 3 Ave., Abbotsford.

The audition is open to all community performers ages 16 to 70.

When the image of Jesus Christ appears on the wall of a Tim Horton’s restaurant in Natley, N.S., the town is thrown in to euphoric chaos. Is this appearance a miracle? A hoax?

While the townsfolk contemplate difficult questions about faith, life and love, a father quietly wrestles with his own faith as he deals with a tragedy that has left his daughter in a coma. Hilarious, moving and challenging all at the same time, this play has become a Canadian classic.

Halo is a comical, yet tender story of love, faith and relationships,” said Ken Hildebrandt, executive/artistic director for Gallery 7 Theatre.

“The play asks important questions about commercialism, sensationalism and cynicism while exploring the grittier side of faith in tough, very personal circumstances. The show is wildly fun and contains plenty of humour, but it also challenges audiences to think.”

Halo will run Jan. 27 and 28, Feb. 1 to 4, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. with discount matinees on Jan. 28 and Feb. 4 at 2 p.m. at the Abbotsford Arts Centre, 2329 Crescent Way, Abbotsford. Rehearsals will commence the week of Nov. 21 and the production will be directed by Hildebrandt.

“I am pleased to be presenting such a fine example of Canadian drama in our season this year, especially as we celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday,” said Hildebrandt.

“A lot of the play takes place in a Tim Hortons – you can’t get more Canadian than that.”

To register for the audition, or for more information, please contact Gallery 7 Theatre at 604-504-5940 or visit their website at www.gallery7theatre.com.

Those interested in working behind the scenes are also invited to attend the audition.
