NOTICE OF AUDITION
TKS is holding auditions for its Spring show 'Heroes'.
This will also be our entry in the Ozone Theatre Festival.
Auditions will be held either in the set shop or in the TKS room upstairs (at the Rotary Centre for the Arts) on Sunday, December 8th from 1-4 pm.
'Heroes' is an English adaptation of a French play about three WWI veterans who live in a veterans' retirement home.
Gustave, Philippe, and Henri - war heroes, all - are plotting an escape. They've had enough of the tortures of their confinement: dictatorial captors, untrustworthy fellow prisoners, and far too many birthday parties. Indeed, life in a retired soldiers' home is almost unbearable! So, while keeping each other company on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina, or at least to a picnic under the poplars on a nearby hill. Winner of London's prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tom Stoppard's adaptation of this French play is playful, bawdy, and heartbreakingly funny.
The play requires only 3 actors, all male. The characters are described as in their 60s.
A prepared monologue is not necessary but you may have one ready if you wish.
If you cannot make this date, or have any questions, you may contact the director, Brian Haigh, at 250 767 3116.
