SLT holding auditions Feb. 1, 2 for Fraser Valley Zone Festival entry

Production of Truth and Reconciliation will be staged in April and May

Surrey Little Theatre is on the lookout for performers to cast in their upcoming production of Etan Frankel’s Truth and Reconciliation, which will be the theatre company’s entry into the Fraser Valley Zone Festival this spring.

Auditions  will be held on Sunday, Feb. 1 at 2 p.m. and Monday, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. to fill six roles — including two women and four men ranging in ages 20 to 80.

No appointment necessary.

Alaina Holland, has returned to SLT to direct, after winning both the Community Theatre Coalition and the Fraser Valley Zone Festival’s Outstanding Lead Actress for her work in Langley Player’s Light Sensitive last season.

Holland enthusiastically jumped on board to direct Truth and Reconciliation after reading the suspenseful play about a passionate young doctor who mysteriously disappears while providing healthcare in a volatile Central American country, full of civic unrest.

The plot unfolds in two parallel story lines, one with gripping powerful testimonials by his parents during a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The other follows a tender love story with promises of things to come.

Rehearsals will begin in February and the show will run from April 16 to May 16 at Surrey Little Theatre, 7027 184 St.

During the week of May 17 there will be an additional performance at the 2015 Fraser Valley Zone Festival held at Langley Playhouse.
