Blood Relations written by Sharon Pollock, will be hitting our Nickle Studio stage

psychological murder mystery that is based on fact and speculation surrounding
the life of Lizzie Borden and the murders of her father and stepmother. This
production will be directed by Piper Rempel of Edmonton, AB.

Friday, January 11th, 2019 / 6pm to 9pm

We are looking to cast the following roles:

THE ACTRESS : Similar age range to Miss Lizzie. Again, late 20s, early 30s.
HARRY : Similar in age to Abigail Borden. 50?

The director of this show is looking for those auditioning to prepare a 1-2 minute
contemporary monologue (no Shakespeare please!). There will also be a few
chosen cold reads done from the play itself, followed by a brief interview. Those
interested in auditioning must contact our VP of Productions, Cynthia Edwards, to
book in a 15-minute slot. Cynthia Edwards: firstname.lastname@example.org
You must book a slot to be considered at auditions. Any walk-ins that arrive on
either of these dates will either be asked to wait for an open spot to audition OR
be turned away, so please contact our VP of Productions to solidify your spot.
