DIRECTORS STILL NEEDED FOR TWO SHOWS in Alumnae Theatre’s 2012/2013 Season

Missed the original deadline?  You can submit a proposal to direct either of these two plays:

“February” by Lisa Moore   (September 21 – October 6, 2012)

Based on her acclaimed novel of the same name, Lisa Moore’s play February is the story of Helen, a Newfoundlander whose husband, Cal, was killed in the Ocean Ranger Disaster in 1982. February is about moving forward, about never letting go and about doing the right thing. Its characters are vivid and wonderful and the story is as funny as it is sad. Alumnae Theatre’s production will be the Toronto premiere – a new version of the script, based on a workshop in March 2012.

“A Woman of No Importance” by Oscar Wilde (January 25 – February 9, 2013)

A classic Oscar Wilde comedy: England, late 1890’s – a man, a woman, and the child they had outside of marriage (oh, my!). Lord Illingworth has employed young Gerald as his new secretary. But when Gerald’s mother, Mrs. Arbuthnot, meets her son’s new boss they immediately recognize each other from their youthful days of indiscretion. Will Gerald learn his father’s true identity? What of Lord Illingworth? And how will Mrs. Arbuthnot live with the result?

INTERVIEW DATE:     Wednesday May 23rd between 7:00pm and 9:30pm. Location TBA.
