AUDITION NOTICE
LAKESHORE PLAYERS DORVAL
(COMMUNITY THEATRE)

Come audition for the second play of our 54th Season, THE ODD COUPLE, FEMALE VERSION, by Neil Simon, directed by Glen BOWSER. The play will run at the Lakeside Academy, in Lachine, from February 7th to the 16th, 2019.

Auditions will be held at the Chalet of Parc St-Charles (90 Avenue Martin) in Dorval, on Tuesday, November 20th (7pm) and Thursday, November 22nd (7pm). These will be CLOSED AUDITIONS. Instructions are as follows:

A) The director will be auditioning actors privately in pairs or small groups (to properly view the chemistry between characters and actors with critical relationships). As such, it is strongly recommended that if you wish to audition send an email to the producers (TOCAuditions@lakeshoreplayersdorval.com) to let them know on which night you wish to attend the auditions, and which characters you will be auditioning for. This is the director’s request. However, you can still attend the auditions unannounced if you wish, and the director will still see you.

B) When you arrive at the Chalet, please do not enter the main large room that is usually used for auditions and rehearsals. Instead, please enter the adjacent room near the Chalet’s office, storage room, washrooms and water fountain. This is where you will be asked to sign in by filling out the audition forms, and this is where you will be ushered into the audition room when your name is called.

Callbacks, if necessary, will be Sunday, November 25th (1pm).

Lakeshore Players Dorval strongly encourages equality and inclusiveness.  Please note that this is an amateur, unpaid production. Cast will be required to become members of Lakeshore Players Dorval.
