Didn’t we all go to law school for a little DRAMA?!
Don’t we all deserve to be on stage?!
The Players de Novo, a talented gaggle of lawyers and judges, have now produced 16 annual plays to rave reviews We’ve raised over ONE MILLION DOLLARS for our local theatre community and the Victoria School Foundation. And for the first time ever we want some law students to join the fun! As a prospective cast member, you will be committing to three things: (1) to attend all rehearsals on Sunday afternoons and on one evening each week starting January 2024; (2) trying to sell tickets while mingling with lawyers and judges and (3) to have fun!
JOIN US AS THE PLAYERS DE NOVO PRESENT
THE MADWOMAN OF CHAILLOT
by Jean Giraudoux, adapted by Maurice Valency
A political satire where politicians, promoters, and prospectors are plotting to tear up the streets for oil! Only a madwoman and her bohemian friends can stop them by staging a trial to determine their fate!
On FRIDAY, MAY 10, 2024, the Players de Novo will bring a whole new meaning to “courtroom drama” as we partner with Theatre Alberta to present the classic satire and WE WANT YOU IN OUR CAST!
There’s a part for everyone in this year’s show, including:
What? YOU DON’T ACT?! Oh puhhhleeease… we’ve seen you confidently strut through courtrooms, hallways, and board rooms alike! You already have a genuine flair for the dramatic, and you definitely love a good audience, so consider this your opportunity to take your performing talents to a whole new stage!
INTERESTED? Please contact Amy Lind at Lind@libertylaw.ca with your year of call, place of employment, any experience and maybe a fun photo!
Uncertain? Message us anyways, we will be having a meet and greet at the end of October!
