Rivercity holding auditions

Two full length productions are planned: Nunsense and Cinderella

Rivercity Players is looking for actors and directors for their busy fall season!

Two full length productions are planned:  Nunsense and Cinderella.

Nunsense is a musical comedy that tells the story of the Little Sisters of Hoboken.  The Sisters are planning a variety show to raise funds after an unfortunate mishap at the convent.

Five women are needed for the production, which will be directed by Heather Gordon Murphy, with musical direction by Kristy Miller. Auditions will be held at the Rivercity Stage, 1080 Hemlock Street, on August 9 at 7 p.m.  For more information:  heather@coremoves.ca.

Gordon Murphy is looking forward to this production.

“I’ve been involved in a variety of roles with Rivercity Players over the years, but it’s from my first time as their director,” she said, “and I’m excited to bring Nunsense to the stage. This is a great musical – lots of fun!”

A pantomime version of Cinderella will be performed over the Christmas season. This is also a musical, under the direction of Gail Tisdale, with musical direction by Susan Nassachuk.

“I am excited to be part of the team that is bringing Rivercity Players’ third pantomime to life,” said Tisdale, “Just like Christmas, it is fun for the whole family.”

This classic tale has a large cast, with everyone from a prince to stepsisters to townspeople.  They are looking to cast men, women, boys and girls (a singing voice is an asset but not required).  Auditions will also be held at the Rivercity Stage Aug. 28 – 1 p.m. and Sept. 6 – 6:30 p.m. For more information: tisdalegail@hotmail.com

Another project in the works is an evening of one acts – to be performed Oct. 21 and 22.  One of the plays will be selected to go to the one act play festival in Qualicum Beach, scheduled for the first week of November. At this time, we are looking for both directors and actors.

Once the directors and plays have been selected, auditions will be held. For more information: tayara@telus.net

Also on the agenda for the fall is Rivercity Players Annual General Meeting, which will take place on Sept. 26, 7 p.m., at the Rivercity Stage. Volunteer recognition will take place after the meeting.
