Auditions: St. Albert Dinner Theatre
“A Little Piece of Heaven” by Matthew Carlin
Nine shows, Feb. 8-10, 15-17, 22-24, 2018
The play: An unlikely relationship is forged in the quirky tourist shop called “A Little Piece of Heaven.” Restless biker Mike, who works in the shop, finds a friend in the sassy elderly Lily, although their relationship certainly doesn’t start out that way. But there’s something odd about this little shop owned by the equally odd Elizabeth and Henry. Suspicion and disagreement turn to respect and trust in this place where long lost things are finally found.

St. Albert Dinner Theatre is a volunteer-run community theatre in its seventh season of providing a relaxed, fun atmosphere, with great food and entertainment. We have a growing following of season subscribers and volunteers who keep coming back to join our theatre family for an enjoyable night out. On performance evenings, we are happy to offer meals to performers.
We are looking for hard-working, dedicated performers, who love the team effort of rehearsal and collaboration. If you also know how to swing a paint brush or wield a drill, we certainly welcome the team efforts at production time! The characters of Mike and Lily have a waltz scene, so some movement skill set is an asset.
A memorized monologue is required. Replies to your booking inquiry will include a script section including your requested character. Please memorize these lines as well.
Resumes and headshots are encouraged. Please include in your email the character(s) you are interested in. Email requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
Audition times are Sunday, Dec. 3 from 1-4 p.m., and Mon. Dec. 4 from 7-9 p.m., at the Kinsmen Banquet Centre, 47 Riel Drive, St. Albert
