Auditions: The Last Resort


Written by Norm Foster
Music by Leslie Arden
Directed by Elizabeth Munz

No one and nothing is as it seems…

A big city restaurant owner running from the mob arrives in the last place on earth he thinks they’ll find him – a hotel in rural Saskatchewan. But someone there wants him dead. Is it one or both of the identical twin sisters? The couple on their second honeymoon? The crazy hotel proprietress? The flirtatious poet?  The agent assigned to protect him? Or the mysterious piano player that hardly says a word? Can you figure out whodunit?

The audition process for the show has changed — please read

As a precaution due to COVID-19, in-person The Last Resort auditions have been postponed. Because of the public safety concerns at this time we are asking for auditioners to submit video audition tapes. We will be granting in-person auditions at the KWLT theatre in Uptown Waterloo on a case-by-case basis only to those individuals who cannot reasonably make a tape at the discretion of the production team. Please note that there may be some basic COVID-19 screening questions prior to your in-person audition.  Being granted an in-person audition will be evaluated on an individual basis, and may change as the situation evolves.  Once the show is cast, rehearsals will be done over video conferencing software until it is deemed safer to gather in groups. 

Here is the link to the audition form. If you have already submitted an audition form, a member of The Last Resort production team will contact you; you do not need to resubmit your information. If this is your first time submitting a form, please indicate that you will be submitting a taped audition.

Deadline for the video submissions are March 31st at 11:59pm, but please submit them as soon as you can!

For a video audition we ask that you prepare - 

  • A 1-2 minute monologue of your choosing (any style; camp preferred)
  • 2 contrasting songs that shows your range and character flare
  • A vocal range test (optional)
  • The show choreographer will be creating an audition piece video, and auditioners will be asked to record themselves performing this routine to submit along with their video audition. 

If you need to audition in-person, we ask you to prepare - 

  • A 1-2 minute monologue of your choosing (any style; camp preferred)
  • A song (any style; musical preferred) that showcases your range and character flare

Don’t have a monologue or a song? No problem! Monologues will be provided on request and if all you want to sing is “Happy Birthday”, that is perfectly acceptable!

You may be required to perform a brief dance/movement piece. Please dress in comfortable clothing and appropriate shoes.

All videos/links can be sent to the director, Elizabeth Munz. And if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact her.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!
