Casting call on Dec. 1 for Gallery 7 production

A casting call goes out for Gallery 7 Theatre's production of The Importance of Being Earnest in Abbotsford.

If you are between the ages of 17 and 65, you are invited to attend the casting call for Gallery 7 Theatre and Performing Arts’s production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 6:30 p.m.

The satirical play explores Victorian morals and manners, with a twist that has the two lead male roles assuming alternate identities, and winning the favour of two women through their disguised charm and wit.

Directing is the theatre’s artistic director, Ken Hildebrandt.

“There are outstanding roles for both men and women. This play poses some fun challenges, especially in terms of language and character.”

The show will run March 9-10, 15-17, and 22-24, with matinees on March 10 and 17.

Rehearsals begin Jan. 4 on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings.

Auditions, rehearsals and performances will be at the MEI Theatre at 4081 Clearbrook Rd.

For more information or to sign up ahead of time, call 604-504-5940.
