Royal Canadian Theatre Company hosts auditions March 1 and 5

Actors and crew members needed for two plays to be featured in Short Play Festival

The Royal Canadian Theatre Company is holding auditions for their inaugural Short Play Festival to be held in May.

Needed are:

  • Six males between the ages of 18 and 45 (some double casting possible);
  • One female in her mid 20s or 30s;
  • Crew members.

Director Lorne Seifred with be putting together two plays — Line by Israel Horovitz and Correct Address by Judd Silverman.

Line follows the story of a group of unacquainted people who, one by one, come together to form a line for some unnamed upcoming event. The first to arrive is a burly, beer-drinking, sweat-shirted middle American; then an alienated, voluble, Mozart-loving youth; a taciturn type who brings his own folding stool; and, finally, a shapely, promiscuous girl and her spineless, older husband. Gradually inexorably, the struggle for first place begins, and as they lie, cheat, wrestle and push to gain the lead spot an extraordinary panorama of human frailty is made explosively and hilariously real. As, in the end, are the deviousness, the competitiveness, and the pettiness of the small, wasting battles with which we litter our lives.

Correct Address follows the story of a young man in a stripped apartment, who is packing his lover’s memorabilia to send home to his mother. Suddenly a friend appears. They had quarreled over telling the mother about them, but she didn’t have to be told. She wouldn’t let her son’s lover come to the funeral, and the two men weep together.

Auditions will be held at 10660 City Parkway, Surrey on March 1 at 7 p.m. and March 3 at 5 p.m.

This will be a cold read. Actors are welcome to bring resumes, however they are not required.
