The Off-Broadway Players are proud to announce their selection for 63rd annual Provincial Drama Festival in Goose Bay, Labrador, this coming April. "The Play About the Baby" by Edward Albee, who is most known for plays like "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf" and "The Zoo Story," will be directed by long-time OBP member Joanne Martin.
"This is a different show for us," says Martin. "A mix of absurdity, dark humour and haunting themes, it's a minimal show that will certainly depend largely on a very talented cast. I'm really excited to see who comes out for auditions because there are so many potential options for casting this show," says the director.
The cast consists of two men and two women. Martin is also looking to form a small crew who are capable of taking on the off-stage duties for the show, such as lighting, sound and stage management.
Open auditions for the show will be held Saturday and Sunday, December 15th and 16th from 2:00-4:00pm at the former Regina High School on Mount Bernard Avenue.
"These auditions are very informal and relaxed," says Martin. "There's no need to prepare anything in advance - just show up and we will have some scenes selected to read. We will do some different parings and read a few different scenes. I really hope we get some fresh faces and voices in addition to our mainstay members who usually come out to audition."
Those interested in further information or who would like to set up an alternate audition time can contact Ms. Martin by calling 634.4613 or by e-mailing joanne_martin@yahoo.ca
Corner Brook audiences will get a chance to see "The Play About the Baby" in March before it heads to Labrador as part of the Provincial Drama Festival, which is slated from March 31st to April 6th.
