The third play of the season this year is the Tony Award winning musical Urinetown. It’s a comedy but it’s not your grandmother’s humour. In a world where water is in short supply and people are told, “it’s a privilege to pee,” a callous business man Caldwell B. Cladwell controls the urinals and suppresses the common people, until a rebellion and unlikely romance takes the story – well, you’ll just have to come and see. We are planning on a large cast and everyone (to some degree) will be singing and dancing and, oh yes, acting. It’s going to be a ball so do check out the audition info on the Langham website, or send the director, Roger Carr, an email at rcarr@shaw.ca

The audition process: On the Saturday or Sunday we will ask actors to try a little movement with our choreographer and sing a short burst of music of your own choice (keep it to about 30 seconds and bring sheet music if you have it). Actors will be asked perform a short scene from the suggestions provided. The director will do some “mixing and matching.” For the Monday callbacks, specific pairings will be given.


Sense and Sensibility

By Kate Hamill
Based on the novel by Jane Austen
Directed by Keith Digby and Cynthia Pronick
February 28 – March 17

Auditions: Saturday, December 9 and Sunday, December 10 at 1:00 p.m.
Callbacks: Wednesday, December 13 at 6:00 p.m.
In the Rehearsal Room

Sense and Sensibility is set in England in the 1790s when gossip was the lifeblood and stricture of society, and reputations were created and destroyed by that gossip. While the text of the play is true to Jane Austen’s original story, the playing of it is a lively romp! Actors will form part of the set and furniture pieces, and move other characters out of one scene and into the next. The roles of Mrs. Jennings and Lady Middleton may be performed by men.

Cast requirements (flexible):

  • 5 Women aged 15-70
  • 5 Men aged 25-70
  • English accents are required and will be refined during rehearsals.
  • With the exception of Elinor (sensible) and Marianne (sensitive) Dashwood, all actors can expect to play at least two characters.

The audition process: It is not necessary to prepare a particular piece, but please be familiar with the script. Dress comfortably and be prepared to explore and play!

Actors must be prepared to:

  • show versatility in switching between characters
  • creatively interpret ideas
  • work as a member of an energetic ensemble
