CAST INFORMATON

We are looking for six men (ages 23-60) and two women (characters aged 70+).

This is a fun play with a lot of verbal and physical humour -- we're looking forward to a great show.  We'd love to have you on board!

 

 

PREPARATION INFORMATON

This is a cold read audition.  

Auditions and rehearsals to take place at our "Backstage" location on the grounds of the Markham Museum.

The play will run from February 9-12 at Flato Markham Theatre.

Rehearsals are Tuesday and Thursday (evenings) and Sunday (10:00 - 4:00 with a lunch break).

We are a community theatre, and do NOT pay cast or crew.  We're looking forward to getting back into the swing of things after a long Covid lockdown, so we hope to see you!

SYNOPSIS

The Ladykillers is a classic black comedy. Mrs. Wilberforce, a sweet little old lady, rents out a room in her lopsided house to Marcus, a professor of music. She is blissfully unaware that he is actually a maniacal criminal who is putting together against a gang of misfits who will stop at nothing to commit the heist of their careers. Unable to think of a suitable final stage to their plan, Marcus decides to involve Mrs. Wilberforce, unwittingly, as the perfect getaway ruse. However, at the final stage, Mrs. Wilberforce becomes wise to their deception and the gang realize that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. As the gang is killed off one-by-one in their attempts to murder the old lady, Marcus faces Mrs. Wilberforce alone and seals his own grizzly fate.
