Players season holds promise

Audition for Christie roles this weekend

The Peninsula Players are set to bring a little mystery, murder and mirth as they announced its lineup for the upcoming season.

They’ll first perform, by audience demand, The Unexpected Guest written by Agatha Christie, directed by Sid Clarke. Over the winter they’ll continue the pantomime tradition with Robin Hood — A Christmas Pantomime written and directed by Allan Haynes. Following that expect to see Murder at the Howard Johnson’s written by Ron Clark and Sam Bobrick and directed by Matt Watson. The season will wrap with How The Other Half Loves, written by Alan Ayckbourn and directed by Sid Clarke.

Auditions for The Unexpected Guest run July 23, 24 and 30 at the Peninsula Players clubhouse at 1649 Mount Newton X Road. The cast requires seven men aged 20 to 50 and three women aged 20 to 50 plus backstage and support crew.

Auditions for Robin Hood began in July with more slated for August and rehearsals starting in September. Performances are booked for Dec. 9 to 11 at The Centre in Brentwood Bay, Dec. 16 to 18 at Berwick Theatre in Royal Oak and Dec. 21 to 23 and Dec. 27 to 29 at the Mary Winspear Centre.
