Email Woes

Our web server recently upgraded and during the process we lost our email forwards for about a month before things could be fixed. During that time (early September to early October) we received no email. And while it made things nice and calm around the box-office, we did not recover the email when things came back online. As such, if you sent us email during that time, we are not ignoring you; we simply did not receive it. If you can please forward your emails to us again, we are back up and running 100%. Thank you for your patience with this.

Construction!

For those of you coming to visit us for our upcoming show “The Game is Afoot! or Holmes for the Holidays”, please be aware of the construction on Potters Road. The detour will lead you east on Simcoe Street to Westtown Line which then meets up with Potters Road on the other side of the construction. It adds about two to three minutes to your trip.

Auditions for Angel Street (Gaslight)

We are having auditions for Patrick Hamilton’s fantastic thriller... Angel Street (Gaslight) October 24 & 25th with a tentative audition/callback October 29th, 2017.

Performances will be February 8-11 & 15-18, 2018

Angel Street tells the story of the Manninghams who live on Angel Street in 19th Century London. As the curtain rises, all appears the essence of Victorian tranquility. It is soon apparent however, that Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness which masks more sinsister motives. While he is out, Mrs. Manningham has an unexpected caller: amiable, paternal Inspector Rough from Scotland Yard. Rough is convinced that Manningham is a homicidal maniac wanted for a murder committed fifteen years earlier in this very house.
Gradually the inspector restores Bella’s confidence in herself and as the evidence against Manningham unfolds, the author has built and sustained some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theatre.

We are looking for 5 actors for the following roles...

3 females - 19 to 50+ years
Mrs Manningham
Nancy
Elizabeth

2 males - 30+ years
Mr Manningham
Inspector Rough

Auditions will be held at the Otter Valley playhouse, October 24, 25th with a tentative audition/callback for October 29th. Doors open 7pm to 10pm,

Hope to see you there!!
