Audition for… ‘Murder’

The Surrey Little Theatre is holding auditions this Sunday and Monday for its festival entry, A Murder of Crows.

Written by Ed Graczyk, the play is a black comedy set in a small mid-western U.S. town, where the last residents are reluctant to move to the city – even though nearby farmland’s become a toxic waste dump.

Auditions take place at the playhouse, located at 7027 184 Street, and start at 6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16 and at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 17.

Anyone auditioning will be asked to do a cold read from the script. The production is looking for men and women in the 30-plus age range.

Actors who can play elderly characters are also welcome. Don’t worry if you haven’t reached the golden years yet – the makeup artist is ready for all sorts of challenges, producer Brigitte Seib says.

Directed by Lynne Karey-McKenna, the show will run April 7 to May 7, plus a performance at the Fraser Valley Zone Festival May 8 to 14. If it wins, the play will go to Mainstage B.C. in July.

Further character descriptions are at the SLT’s website:

Meanwhile, the Surrey LIttle Theatre is set to open its first musical in a long time – You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

The play – based on the popular characters in the “Peanuts” comic strip by the late Charles M. Schultz – runs Feb. 3 to 26 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, plus Sunday afternoon matinees at 2 p.m. All tickets $15. Reservations by calling 604-576-8451 or by email at
