Director Lois Archer-Duell will hold auditions for Shuswap Theatre’s winter production, The Curious Savage by John Patrick. It is a warm-hearted comedic play about Ethel P. Savage, a woman whose husband recently died and left her $200 million. Her stepchildren feel she is spending the money foolishly and when they cannot get their hands on the money, commit her to a “sanatorium” named The Cloisters with the hope of bringing her to her senses.
Auditions run Saturday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 25 at 1 p.m. Newcomers are welcome. Rehearsals begin in early January (no commitments in December.) For a copy of the script or more information, contact Lois at 250-804-2998 or Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
