Actresses seeking a place in the Nanaimo spotlight have their chance to audition for a Nanaimo Theatre Group production next week.
The theatre group is seeking actresses for its upcoming production of Les Belles Soeurs. Les Belles Soeurs, written by Michel Tremblay, will be directed by Robb Mowbray. The play, which the theatre group will present next spring, is about a woman named Germaine who wins a million trading stamps and invites her friends and relatives for a pasting party. During the party the bitterness and poverty of their lives are revealed. The Nanaimo Theatre Group plans to enter the play in the North Island Zone Festival. The play needs 15 women, ranging in ages from early 20s to seniors with the bulk of the roles for women in their 40s and 50s. The auditions are at Bailey Studio located at 2373 Rosstown Rd., are Tuesday (Oct. 23) from 7-9 p.m. and Oct. 27 from 1-4 p.m.
