An information meeting for local performers interested in auditioning for the 2020 Prince Rupert Community Musical will be held on Monday, October 21 at 7:30 PM at the Lester Centre.
Actors and singers will be introduced to the work and will receive an opportunity to sign up for auditions over the weekend of October 26 and 27.
The creative team behind DISASTER! will be in attendance:
Lester Centre manager Michael Gurney will serve as producer. Michael has directed, produced and performed in a number of Prince Rupert productions, and counts the 2014 rendition of LES MISERABLES as one of his favourites so far.
Artistic director Hans Seidemann appeared recently as the singing-dancing sensation Sir Robin in SPAMALOT; he also directed the Lester Centre's spring 2019 production of Neil Simon's farce RUMORS.
Musical direction will be provided by Kristy Tillman, who in 2018 led the orchestra for the Lester Centre's production of SPAMALOT and the Charles Hays Secondary School performances of 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL, in addition to her ongoing leadership of concert, jazz and marching bands of School District 52.
Veteran Lester Centre Technical Director Dwain Harrison will oversee the show's design, while RUMORS directorial alumnus Scott Langille will serve as Stage Manager.
