Surrey Little Theatre will cast fall production on June 21 and 22

Calendar Girls has roles for nine women and four men, aged 20 to 70

Surrey Little Theatre will hold auditions on Sunday, June 21 and Monday, June 22 at 7 p.m. for their fall production of the comedy Calendar Girls by Tim Firth.

There are roles for nine women and four men, ranging in ages from 20 to 70. No appointment is necessary.

Based on the movie by the same name, members of a Women’s Institute decide to pose nude for a calendar to raise funds for the local hospital in support of a member who lost her husband to leukemia.

The calendar’s success puts a strain on the women’s friendships.

Firth’s stage adaptation broke all British box office records for a play, and has been produced worldwide. It was nominated for an Olivier and in 2010 won the Whatsonstage Best Comedy Award.

The director is Simon Challenger, last seen at SLT as Ben Montgomery Sr., in Etan Frankel’s Truth and Reconciliation.

Rehearsals will begin in late August and the show will run from Oct. 22 to Nov. 21 at Surrey Little Theatre, 7027 184 St.

For more information, visit www.surreylittletheatre.com or contact Simon Challenger at schallenger@shaw.ca.

There will also be many volunteer backstage opportunities available so please contact us if you are interested in joining the team. info@surreylittletheatre.com
