Audition call for WRAPS performances

Winding Rivers Arts and Performance Society in Ashcroft are calling for auditions, age 7 and up, on Sept. 14 and 15.

Winding Rivers Arts and Performance Society in Ashcroft invites you to come on down for our play auditions this week! We’re doing “A Midsummer Night’s Midterm”. Auditions start at 3:30 pm on Friday, Sept. 14 and again 3 pm on Sat., Sept. 15 in the Ashcroft Secondary School library. All ages from age 7 and up and welcome! We have plenty of parts to fill! Performing Nov. 15-17. Come on down!

Here’s a  quick peek at the script outline: As four high school friends gather to cram for a midterm on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the play comes to life before their eyes… literally! The story unfolds before the teens, as Lysander and Demetrius compete for Hermia’s attention and Helena attempts to capture Demetrius’s attention. When the faeries and Bottom and his players show up, the students work even harder to understand this delightfully convoluted story.

Their insightful comments on Shakespeare’s language and his characterization dialogue adds even more fun. The original Shakespearean language is retained but condensed for this play within a play, with the students interpreting the more difficult passages. All the plot, all the wit and all the magic of one of the Bard’s most popular plays is presented here along with light-hearted commentary! Finally, a Shakespeare play that everyone can understand and enjoy!

We also need folks of any age to help with the behind the scenes fun and frolics. Lots to choose from including sound and lights assistants, stage hands, costume and make up!

For more info call (250) 453-9100 or email windingriversarts@gmail.com. Hope to see you there – all are welcome !
