Current Audition Notices for Actors
By Carol Shields
Directed by Claren Grosz
PERFORMANCE DATES: October 20th to November 4th, 2017
Thirteen Hands is a witty and vibrant play-cum-musical that explores the nuances of life and womanhood. One of Alumnae’s most revered and successful premières, Thirteen Hands returns this season as part of the theatre company’s 100th anniversary retrospective series. It follows the lives of four women, along with their daughters and granddaughters, who find connection and support through a weekly game of bridge.
Thirteen Hands will feature a group of 9 diverse women from many generations who will play multiple bit parts in addition to one main role. We strongly encourage women of all backgrounds to apply.
