Volunteer Actors auditions and interviews for 4th Line Theatre’s summer production will be happening this month!
Have you always wanted to act onstage? Want to be part of an epic outdoor production in your community? Have you ever wondered how 4th Line productions come to life? Interested in learning new skills and working alongside professional actors, directors and choreographers?
4th Line Theatre is looking for volunteer actors to perform in its production of Beverley Cooper’s Jim Watts: Girl Reporter for the 2024 Summer Season.
Jim Watts: Girl Reporter is a fascinating exploration of the experience of trailblazing youth who illegally flocked to Spain to fight fascism, attempting to stop its march across Europe, in the mid-1930s. Jean ‘Jim’ Watts was the only woman to join Canada’s regiment in Spain, the MacKenzie-Papineaus. The play takes us from Toronto to Madrid, from political rallies to the battlefields of Spain. And Peterborough’s own Jim Higgins – union organizer and hero – figures prominently in the story.
4th Line is looking for volunteers of all ages for general auditions and is committed to diverse and inclusive casting. We encourage artists of all backgrounds to apply.
Auditions and interviews will be held on Sunday, January 28th from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at The 4th Line Theatre Box Office & Administrative Centre, 9 Tupper Street, Millbrook, ON, L0A 1G0. People will be seen in order of arrival. Even if you have limited acting experience but are interested in bringing our region’s history to life on stage, consider auditioning. Previous acting experience is not required.
