Debra McNie, creator of the Potato Dreams community theatre project, will be holding open call auditions this Sunday, April 15 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Centre next to City Hall.
No previous acting experience is required, McNie says.
Wear comfortable clothing, arrive at 10:45 a.m. and be prepared, if possible, to stay until 2 p.m.
She asks people to keep in mind that make-up and costumes create wonderful magic on stage.
The lead character is a woman who appears to be in her 60s.
The second lead character is an older man or woman who appears to be mid-60s in age.
The other main characters and approximate ages include a father, 30 to early 40s; daughter, seven to nine years old; daughter, late teens to early 20s; a young man of First Nations descent, late teens or early 20’s.
Another eight actors of adults and youth no younger than 14 will be needed to interact with the audience.
“These actors may also be part of a skit being developed as an advertising tool,” McNie says.
“People interested in participating with the production behind the scenes, costumes, make-up, set, gardening are welcome to attend even if just curious. No previous experience required.”
