Audition call for ‘Calendar Girls’

Surrey Little Theatre invites men and women to audition for its fall production, Calendar Girls.

Got the acting bug?

Community theatre is a great way to get let your inner light shine.

Surrey Little Theatre is holding auditions for its fall 2015 production, a stage version of Calendar Girls.

Based on the movie and written by Tim Firth, Calendar Girls tells the story of how members of a women’s institute decide to pose nude for a calendar in order to raise funds for the local hospital. The gesture is in support of a woman who lost her husband to leukemia. The calendar’s success puts a strain on the women’s friendships. The stage adaptation broke box office records in Britain, and has since gone global.

The SLT production will be directed by Simon Challenger, last seen as Ben Montgomery in Truth and Reconciliation. He was awarded outstanding direction by a first time director at MainStage BC.

Auditions are Sunday, June 21 and Monday, June 22 at 7 pm. for the fall production, running Oct. 22 to Nov. 21 at SLT, 7027 184 Street, Surrey.

Roles for nine women and four men ranging in age from 20 to 70 are being cast. No appointment necessary.

Rehearsals begin in late August.
