Current Calls for Directors
SEEKING EXPERIENCED DIRECTOR
playing April 13 – 28, 2018 at Alumnae Theatre, Toronto
A humorous, large-cast play with music, song & dance by award-winning playwright, Shirley Barrie featuring the traumas and triumphs of one of Canada’s first international starlets – the flamboyant, tenacious actor Marie Dressler from rural Cobourg, Ontario.
Marie Dressler’s long, checkered career as a self-effacing, physical comedian journeys through roadshows, vaudeville, Broadway, silent films, Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo and an Oscar in 1932 in a “talkie.”
