This is for a movie - not theatre - I hope you will all forgive me.

Heather is looking for:

- two 'transport' guards (just deliver the prisoners) - could shoot all
those sequences in an hour and bid them goodbye
- two 'interrogation room' guards - need them all of both days -
preferably strong muscular types - like at least ONE of them to be male.
- one 'interrogator' (read, torturer) - male.
- two 'prisoners' - preferably one male one female

.. if you know any of your 'improv' friends who'd like the challenge ... PLEASE point them her way. The sooner the better.

She needs people for Saturday and Sunday June 24th and 25th.

If you think you can do this, and commit, give Heather a call at 381-0091.

I don't think I'd pass as a believable married woman, but here's a heads up for any of the 25+ Vancouver Island actors out there.

Lamgham Court Theatre
AUDITIONS for "Bedroom Farce" by Alan Ayckbourn
Play #1 of the 2006-07 Season
Production Dates: September 21st – October 7th, 2006

Director: Toshik Bukowiecki

Audition Dates:
Saturday, July 22nd, 2006 - 12:00noon to 3:00pm
Sunday, July 23rd, 2006 – 2:00pm to 5:00pm

Taking place in the bedrooms of three beleaguered couples, this wickedly funny play is about Trevor and Susannah – a young couple with a rocky marriage - who with blithe inconsideration inflict the maximum amount of inconvenience on their friends and family in their attempt to reconcile.


Delia – old enough to have a 30 year old son – Trevor’s mother
Earnest – old enough to have a 30 year old son – Delia’s husband
Nick – married to Jan – bedridden with a bad back
Jan – married to Nick and Trevor’s ex
Malcolm – married to Kate – inept DYIer
Kate – married to Malcolm – patient and caring
Trevor – married to Susannah – self-centered, sometimes oblivious
Susannah – desperate about her marriage, low self-esteem
Nick, Jan, Malcolm, Kate, Trevor and Susannah are contemporaries – late 20’s to mid 30’s

British accents preferred
Scripts available through the theatre box office.
Questions? Contact Gil Henry at 361-1895

In An Act of the Imagination, Arthur Putnam is an eccentric and extremely successful mystery writer who, seemingly out of the blue, has just taken a complete departure from his usual style and written a vivid, passionate love story. When real life starts to mirror events from the manuscript however, his wife, son and editor begin to wonder if it is, indeed, purely a work of his imagination. Blackmail, adultury, conspiracy, murder... Slade has written a sophisticated and intriguing tale of suspense and deception, with enough plot twists and turns to entertain even the most active imaginations!

About the Playwright:

Canadian-born Bernard Slade is one of Hollywood's most prolific writers. After writing over twenty one-hour television shows for the CBC, he moved to Los Angeles to begin a career in Hollywood as a writer and story editor on "Bewitched". He has created eight television series, including "The Flying Nun", "The Partridge Family" and "Mr. Deeds Goes To Town". As a playwright, Slade produced the popular "Same Time Next Year", "Fatal Attraction," "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" and many other notable works.
