This year our staged readings will feature the homefront during the first World War; up next is The Old Lady Shows Her Medals by JM Barrie. If you're not able to volunteer to be in the play, come out and watch it on the 25th! It's PWYC with proceeds going to KWLT, and we have a Q&A session after!
Who We Need
2 Men, 4 Women
Reading: Sunday February 19, 1pm
Rehearsal: Saturday February 25, 9:30-5
Performance: Saturday February 25, 8pm
How It Works
We will do a readthru and some tablework on Sunday February 19 at the theatre. Then, you'll have a week to go over your script, make notes, do research, etc. Finally, we'll rehearse the script on Saturday, and perform on Saturday night.
About the Play
An old lady becomes friends with a group of mothers who have sons fighting overseas during World War I. She feels left out since she has no child serving the war effort. After seeing a photo in the newspaper of a soldier with her last name, she tells the other ladies that he is her son, even though she's never even met the man. An uncomfortable meeting between the two is inevitable.
Directed by Adrienne Dandy, the staged readings are a low-pressure way to start your involvement at KWLT or feed your theatre addiction. To volunteer, please email aadandy at gmail.com by February 12. Preference will be given to people who are new to the theatre or who have not performed in a mainstage in the last six months, in order to give more people a chance to participate.
