“It’s all make-believe, isn’t it?”

It’s quite a job acquiring affordable rights to 11 separate plays by 10 Canadian authors. We started with a longer short list of selections that would work with Andra’s theme of exits and entrances. The list whittled itself down to a manageable size as we negotiated with agents and often with the writers themselves. But it’s been a wonderful experience as so many writers embraced the “shoestring” mandate to help get their own work on stage. Scripts have been flying in and out as local actors start reading the interesting roles available this season.

Director Andra Kelly, Producer Carolyn Wilson and Stage Manager Nicole Hart look forwarding to seeing you Wednesday, September 6th at the open audition for In (Roles We) Play, our first production of the year. Andra is seeking 6 to 10 actors, 17 – 70, to play multiple roles in this collection of 11 short plays, and some of them will even get to sing!
