Penticton’s Many Hats Theatre Company has announced the lineup for their 12th season, and they’re holding open auditions later this month to find tha actors they’ll need in 2019.
“We have a great lineup” said Eric Hanston, the company’s executive producer. “Comedy, drama, and high-energy antics. Something for everyone.”
Open auditions for the upcoming season are scheduled for Oct. 30 on the Cannery Stage, starting at 6:30. Entrance is through the Nest and Nectar right next door. All directors will be in attendance. First come first seen.
Actors of all experience levels are invited to attend. A prepared monologue, headshot, and acting resume is a great but not essential. Auditionees should be prepared to be photographed and possibly do a cold read from one of the scripts.
The 2019 season starts in February, with Jane Pilkey directing a production of Swing Dance, by Canadian playwright Lynda Martens.
The comedy features two couples, one sophisticated and one not, colliding in a misunderstanding about what “swinging” is. It requires two male and two female actors, aged 50 to 70.
Other productions planned for 2019 include:
• Neil Simon’s Odd Couple, Female Version, requiring four women, aged 35 to 55 and two men, aged 30 to 45;
