Actors wanted

R.J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum is looking to hire four actors for this season’s production of Villains and Vittles Dinner Theater, and four interpreters to lead guided tours of the Heritage Village.

Auditions are on Wednesday, May 8 at 4 p.m. in Marjorie’s Tea Room at the Village.

The play is written and directed by local playwright Peter Blacklock and depicts the history of Salmon Arm. Bring your resumes with a headshot and references with you to the audition, and come prepared to show your talents in acting, singing, dancing or playing a musical instrument. If you are unable to attend the audition, an alternate interview can be arranged.

The Village, Museum and Marjorie’s Tea Room offer a unique cultural heritage experience for the travelling and local public. The Heritage interpreters and actors work with the general manager and visitor services department supporting the day-to-day operation of the Heritage Village and Museum, greeting visitors, leading interpretive tours of the site and sharing its fascinating history.
