Clock ticks ‘til curtain call

Langford troupe to put on a 24 hour play and even the title's a secret from the yet-to-be-chosen cast until the day before

Marie-Andrée Rowsell and Leanne Day producers of 24 Hour Play are seeking new talent and crews for this upcoming fundraiser for Four Season’s Musical Theatre.

Aticking clock will count down to a performance by the Four Season’s Musical Theatre.

The Langford theatre company is planning a 24 Hour Play. Within a full rotation of the clock, the company hosts auditions, casts, rehearses and then performs a musical.

The last time Four Season’s had a full-day event was in 2010 with the  two-act play Harvey. This time around they are performing a one-act musical, but the name of the musical is under wraps until the clock starts it countdown Feb. 22.

“The first play had no music so we decided to make it a bit more complicated,” said producer Marie-Andrée Rowsell.

The doors will open at 6 p.m. when actors and crew will meet and the title will be revealed. At 6:30 p.m. the auditions will begin.

“The show has three endings and the audience gets to pick which ending they would like to see,” said Rowsell adding that’s the only clue she will give away.

The cast generally ranges from 14 to 40 year olds, but there are some exceptions. Leanne Day, a producer of the show, is bringing her 11-year-old daughter to the auditions. Megan Day, has been in other Four Season’s shows and is excited to be a part of this one.

Anyone interested in auditioning or volunteering for the production must be able to stay at the theatre for the entire 24-hour period. Anyone under 16 is expected to have a parent or guardian with them the entire time.

“We don’t need people with experience we just need people who want to come and have some fun with us,” Rowsell said. “We are a company that thrives to develop new actors.”

The 24 Hour Play is a fundraiser for the Langford theatre company. Money raised at this performance will help produce other shows throughout the year. At the performance there will also be a costume sale and a 50/50 auction.

Anyone wanting to audition for the 24 Hour Play is asked to send an email to info@fourseasonsmusicaltheatre.com.
