Liverpool International Theatre Festival’s Special Christmas Offer

Liverpool, Nova Scotia. November 30, 2009

From May 19-23, 2010, the community of Liverpool, Nova Scotia will once again shine a spotlight on some of the world’s best theatrical performers at the Liverpool International Theatre Festival (LITF).  Held at Liverpool’s famed Astor Theatre, the biennial festival is celebrating its tenth Anniversary with more entertainment than ever before.  To mark the occasion, LITF is also offering a special Christmas ticket package as a thank-you to audience members.

In addition to the usual line-up of outstanding amateur theatre performers, LITF 2010 will feature activities for youth to enjoy, fantastic nightly entertainment, and the return of some of our audiences’ favourite troupes from past festivals.  Several other special events and guest appearances are also planned.

On stage, the 2010 festival will see the return of the Teochew Drama Association from Singapore, who wowed audiences with their performances in 2000 and 2006; and Blackwood Little Theatre from Wales, who appeared at LITF 2008.  Artistic Director Chris Heide has also accepted applications from Italy, France, Finland, the United States and the Faroe Islands. And, of course, the festival will host the best amateur theatre troupes from across Nova Scotia.  While the exact line-up hasn’t been finalized yet, it’s definitely going to be an exciting blend of international and local theatre.

Audience members will be able to mix and mingle with the theatre troupes at the Festival Club between and after plays, and join in critical discussions with playwrights, directors, and performers at the daily Coffee Critiques. Attendees can also learn more about theatre craft by attending special Workshops.

Urgent Casting Call

Hi everyone,
I am still looking for a few characters for my film…I have one speaking role left for Sadie, she is very bubbly and homecoming queen/cheerleader-ish - must look between the ages of 16-19, the female non-speaking roles with the same age range. I also have two speaking male roles left, the first being Jessie the nasty hot guy from high school…chick magnet but most people find gross… cocky and completely full off himself, the second is Marcus the guy who is in that dramatic relationship and him and his girlfriend are extremely jealous of each other and are constantly fighting but stay together because they are addicted to the drama. Both parts are age range 16-19. And we have a few non-speaking roles for background actor roles as well. If you fit the character descriptions or know someone who might PLEASE contact me immediately by email with a picture at fortheloveoffilm@gmail.com or call my cell @ 393-4750.

Thank you,

Amy Sark

I was wondering if you would spread the word that I am holding auditions for a short film we will be shooting through IMAC here in Charlottetown on December 5-6th. The open auditions are at the Arts Guild building 115 Richmond Street third floor on Wednesday evening November 18th from 6-10pm.

The character descriptions are attached and the auditions are also posted on Kijiji so I can be contacted through that ad or by .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or my home number 370-2357.

The name of the film is “Just by Chance” and it is about a brother and sister forced to live on the streets and the consequences of a robbery for everyone involved BUT with a twist and a chance to start over.

Thank you,

Amy Sark

Casting Call for Short Film: “Harbinger.”

“Harbinger,” a short film written and directed by Justin O’Hanley, is now casting. It’s an adventure film being made with resources from both Holland College and the Island Media Arts Co-op, and it is also intended to serve as a pilot to raise funds for a feature film project in the future. Barring unforeseen developments, it will shoot over the course of five to six days, on weekend afternoons starting mid-November. And though there’s a limit on the number of people who can actually be in the movie, the number of crew positions are unlimited, so if you’re interested in working behind the scenes, that’s an option too. If you have questions about any of the roles, the movie, or if you want to see the script, e-mail j_ohanley92@hotmail.com. Thanks!
