Have you always wanted to act onstage? Want to be part of an epic outdoor production in your community? Have you ever wondered how 4th Line productions come to life? Interested in learning new skills and working alongside professional actors, directors and choreographers? 4th Line Theatre is looking for volunteers to perform in its production of The Winslows of Derryvore this summer.
The Winslows of Derryvore, written and directed by Robert Winslow, is the impressive prequel to the Cavan Blazers. This epic 17th century tale set in Ireland is full of adventure, romance, battles, storytelling, music and magic. The play tells the story of the British colonization of Ireland and the resulting hardships the Irish people faced.
The Winslows of Derryvore is an epic production with a cast of 60 actors; the company’s largest cast ever! The play has many exciting fight, battle and action scenes. 4th Line Theatre is primarily looking for adult and/or young men, as well as women, families, youth and children.
Auditions and interviews will be held on Saturday, February 9th from 10am to 1pm at Baxter Creek Golf Club, 1702 Cedar Valley Road in Fraserville. People will be seen in order of arrival. Even if you have limited acting experience but are interested in bringing our region’s history to life on stage, consider auditioning, particularly if you have a curiosity in historic battle recreation or want to learn how fights are staged. Previous acting experience is not required.
“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.”
