Reading and Audition for community play – everyone welcomeAugust 22, 2019
Live Bait Theatre is presenting a community production of a new play, “The Intercolonial: Ties That Bind”. The play is written by Susan Amos and will be directed by Dale Fawthrop. It will be presented in November, and was written to commemorate 150 years since the Intercolonial Railway came to Sackville in 1869.
There will be a workshop reading of the play (which will double as an audition) on August 22 at 7 pm at the Marshlands Inn. Readers are needed for this event, and it will give people a chance to hear the play and to read for the playwright and director. No experience is necessary, and people of all ages are encouraged to participate.
“It’s not mandatory for people to attend this reading if they want to audition for the play,” said Live Bait President Cynthia Spurles. “But it will be a great help to the playwright as she finishes the final draft of the play, and will give everyone a chance to get a first look at the show. Anyone who is not able to attend but would like to audition for the play should contact Live Bait Theatre”. Everyone selected for the show will receive a small honorarium.
People wanting to read/audition should contact Live Bait beforehand if possible at 536-2248 or info@livebaittheatre. com. The same contact information can be used to arrange another time for an audition. The Intercolonial Railway celebration is made possible by a grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage.
