4th Line Theatre is looking for volunteers to help out at the Winslow Farm this summer. Have you always wanted to act onstage? Interested in learning new skills and working alongside professional actors, directors and designers? Help is also needed in front-of-house to greet and seat the audience and to help backstage with makeup and hair, costumes, set and prop painting, running crew and other production tasks.
Be part of either or both of 4th Line Theatre’s 2012 epic outdoor productions!
“I was very apprehensive when I volunteered to be an actor but during the training and workshops I realized this was the place for me. We learned basic theatrical techniques, choreography and all the behind the scenes roles. It was a unique experience I will always carry with me.” Brenin Watts, Volunteer Performer 2011
4th Line Theatre is looking for adult men and women, families, youth and children, especially young women from ages 15-25 years of age for the chorus of Queen Marie. These volunteer actors should ideally enjoy singing and dancing and play a musical instrument.
Queen Marie, by Shirley Barrie, is a musical comedy about Cobourg-born Marie Dressler, one of the best loved and highest paid stars of Broadway and Hollywood who won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1931. Sky Gilbert’s St. Francis of Millbrook is a stunning coming of age story about the challenges of growing up gay in rural Ontario
Auditions and interviews will be held on Saturday February 11th from 10am to 1pm at Baxter Creek Golf Club, 1702 Cedar Valley Road in Fraserville. Even if you have limited acting experience but are interested in bringing our region’s history to life on stage, come on out. Those who want to volunteer behind the scenes are also asked to come to the interviews. People will be seen on a first to arrive basis.
“Volunteers have been the cornerstone of 4th Line Theatre’s creative activities since its inception in 1992,” states Artistic Director Robert Winslow, “this is where the community and art meet. There is no better place to express yourself, learn and grow.”
4th Line Theatre is committed to preserving and promoting our Canadian cultural heritage through the development and presentation of regionally-based, environmentally-staged historical drama.
