Directors wanted for Surrey Little Theatre team production

First-timers are encouraged to join the directing team for plays-within-plays in an upcoming comedy set to launch in January.

Are you interested in trying your hand at directing but don’t want to bite off a whole play?

The Surrey Little Theatre has the perfect proposal for newbies. The community theatre troupe is looking for a willing volunteer to step in to fill the fourth and final director’s spot for its upcoming comedy, Funny Little Thing Called Love.

The full length play consists of several scenes that are each a play on their own – each connected by the common elements of a full moon and love. Award-winning director Helen Embury will mentor four new directors as part of the production, taking the stage in early 2016.

Three out of four first-time directors for the production are already in place. Production manager Brigitte Seib says she’s pleased to welcome Langley’s Ken Boyd, Patricia Braun of Abbotsford and Surrey’s Brad Duncan to the team.

“All three are talented, award-winning actors that I’ve worked with in the past and I’m very excited that they have come aboard in this capacity,” Seib said.

Contact production manager Brigitte Seib by email at brigitte.seib@surreylittletheatre.com for consideration. Submissions accepted until midnight Sept. 9.

That’s the same night as the Surrey Little Theatre’s Annual General Meeting, being held at the Surrey Little Theatre, 7027 184 Street, 7:30 p.m. Meet new members and socialize starting at 6 p.m.

Mentors are also being put into place for the design team, hair and makeup, and stage management, making this a great season for newcomers to get involved.

Surrey Little Theatre’s 2015-2016 season kicks off with Calendar Girls, written by Tim Firth and directed by Simon Challenger (Oct. 22-Nov. 21), Funny Little Thing Called Love, by Jesse Jones, NIcholas Hope and Jamie Wooten (Jan. 28 to Feb. 27, 2016), and The Last Lifeboat, written by Luke Yankee and directed by Dale Kelly (April 14 to May 14).
