The Worst Play in the World by Jeff Lovett, directed by Kim Cheel
Torchlight Theatre’s SPARK Youth program is holding auditions for their Spring production of “The Worst Play in the World” by Jeff Lovett.
Synopsis: Here’s the first big problem: Mrs. Watson produces Shakespeare every year. She has a love-love-LOVE relationship with Shakespeare. King Lear, Hamlet, Othello…over and over again, year after year. This year, she chooses another bloody tragedy:Macbeth. Mrs. Watson doesn’t get it; she just doesn’t get it. Not surprisingly, the kids have decided to hijack the show and destroy Macbeth with sinister glee. They completely re-write the play and hold secret rehearsals in anticipation of presenting one glorious night of rebellious mayhem. Shakespeare no more! Just as they are ready to take the stage, the drama teacher announces that scholarships will be announced by the local college theatre department after the show tonight. Errrrrr, say what?! Don’t miss this rare chance to see what happens when Shakespeare’s darkest tragedy gets hacked by a group of determined (and talented) drama students.
Show: May 13th & 14th
Auditions: February 12th
Rehearsals: Saturdays starting February 20th
**all rehearsals and performances take place in Airdrie**
