Fire Exit Theatre is seeking actors for their May 2019 production of Sacrament.
In the heart of a city gripped by a deadly epidemic, Father Caleb opens his church to offer people hope. But soon the people taking Mass no longer suffer sickness. When a leading scientist comes to investigate the miracle, an unexpected reunion turns into a showdown between divergent world views fighting for the future of humanity. Is the cure the wine, or in the faith of the people? A gripping illustration of a complex but whole-hearted search for healing.
World Premiere of the 2017 Winner “Scripts on Fire” New Play Competition
Directed by Val Lieske
Written by Gilbert da Silva
Schedule: Rehearsals will begin late February 2019 and take place on evenings and weekends. Tech rehearsals are May 5th–7th with performances running from May 8th-12th, 2019.
How to Prepare: Please prepare a contemporary monologue of one minute in length. The monologue may comic or dramatic, and should be something that you are emotionally connected to rather than a “good character monologue.” Pick something that resembles you at your most truthful. Actors will also be sent a side from the play.
How to Sign Up: Auditions will take place at Renfrew Baptist Church (1204 Renfrew Dr. NW, Calgary) on Saturday, January 26th, 2019 from 1:30-6:30 p.m. Please schedule an audition time by emailing Val Lieske at [email protected]. Further auditions and callbacks will be scheduled as necessary.
Roles: We will be auditioning for the following roles:
Male: mid 30’s to mid 40’s
Female: mid 30’s to mid 40’s
Fire Exit Theatre is a non-equity semi-professional theatre company. Actor honorariums are paid.
