Twenties Street Productions

Well, I have two anouncments to make.

The first: Fort Edmonton Park (A historical park with interpeters in costumes and historical buildings and such things) has a group of actors called Twenties Street Productions. Well, they originally were based out of the hotel in the park, but now, they are going to be based out of a recreation of the old theatre on Jasper Ave. (more information here: Capitol Theatre Project) It is their first official season this year, and they are currently having auditions until Friday. I will be auditioning on Thursday, at 5:45. The plays will be..Well here's the list from FEP's website:

The Importance of Being Earnest - by OscarWilde
Sept. 17, 18, 23, 24, 25

This fun and familiar classic show is suitable for all audiences, and will premiere the Theatre opening on September 17. A fast paces and hilarious comedy of manners, manipulations and mistaken identity, this comedy is sure to entertain everyone from theatre lovers to families.

The Curse of PigeonLake- by NickGreen
Oct. 15, 16, 21, 22, 23

The second play of the Series is a haunted and funny musical by Award winning writer NickGreen. Join four friends as they sit by the fire trying to out-spook the rest of the group. This is a timely piece of work leading up to Halloween.

The Velveteen Rabbit
Dec. 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 17, 18, 19, 21, 23, 24

Another popular classic, this one adapted for the stage by Award winning playwright ChrisCraddock, presents a story of love, hope and belief in transformation around a velveteen rabbit. This third play of the Series also features matinees for the younger theatre fans.

Class trips to Velveteen matinees are only $7.50 per student. Additionally, one free adult ticket is provided per every 5 children for supervision purposes. Children 2 and under are free.

The second anouncment, is rather sad. I will be going on a brief hiatus - proably only a week or two. While I try to get back on top of everything in my life. So then, I guess I'll hopefully see you soon.

That's all for now!
