2018–19 SEASON AUDITIONS
A suspense-filled thriller
Written by Lucille Fletcher
Is Elaine Wheeler really seeing dead people in the window across the way? No one believes her, including her husband, a psychiatrist, and her old friend and houseguest. Add an inquisitive and rather strange neighbour, and a nosy German maid and the suspense and mystery deepen towards a riveting and chilling climax.
Play runs October 10 – 21, 2018

SLEEPING BEAUTY PANTO
Written by Audrey Tyson
Updated by David and Helena Hitchcock
Directed by Heather Lee
St. Luke’s Players presents the classic story of Sleeping Beauty—with a celebration of a new darling baby princess, a nasty curse from an uninvited guest and the banishment of pins from the land. Cheer and boo and be in on what happens next—Panto-style, as the day is saved with singing, dancing, lame jokes and silly, good fun. A favourite for all ages and always a sell-out!
Play runs December 14 – January 1
Rehearsals are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with some exceptions 7-10 pm (with consideration to children). A detailed schedule of rehearsals will be provided at auditions.
Located at S. Luke’s Hall, 3821 Cedar Hill X Road
August 24 from 7 pm
This is a traditional panto. All roles are stereotypes, over the top, overacted and, in some cases, overwhelming! We are looking for a mixture of young and old, either with theatre experience or wanting to try out for the first time. Everyone welcome! There are even a few animal roles for younger children!
Freddie Foster – the narrator-male or female. Comfortable speaking with the audience.
Scratchiquill — male or female. The king’s secretary. Played as a somewhat doddery, absent-minded senior!
King – male. Henpecked by his wife and daughter.
Queen – female. Dominant partner
Royal Pages/Ladies in Waiting: Lady Purl, Lady Plain,
Albert the Horse – panto animal. Requiring two persons, male and/or female. No lines, but requires some agility and coordination!
Lady Titiana – act and speak as a man, but is dressed as a woman (traditional Dame). Large in personality and movements. Outgoing, eccentric, exaggerated, witty “over the top”. Good physical and comedic sense of timing.
Fairy Clean, Fairy Lean, Fairy Green – Adult or teenage females
Princess Magnolia – female. Must be believable as a 17 year old.
Prince Charming – male or female (principal boy). Age must be compatible with Princess Magnolia.
Can easily be played by members of the Chorus;
Nursemaid (Nursey) – adult female
Messenger – male or female
Auntie Biotics – adult female
Children, teens and adults, male and female.
