Auditions for A Bench in the Sun

The Summerland Singers and Players are looking to fill the three lead roles in for their rendition of Ron Clark's A Bench in the Sun.

The Summerland Singers and Players are hosting auditions for their spring production which will take place Jan. 16-18.

A Bench in the Sun by American playwright Ron Clark explores the relationship of Harold and Burt, longtime friends who live in a retirement home and spend their days on a bench in the garden bickering. A once famous actress has just moved in, giving them something new to argue over.

When they learn that the home is about to be sold and they will have to find a new residence, the three join forces to prevent this upsetting development.

Summerland Singers and Players is seeking three senior actors. The dapper, nattily dressed Harold who considers himself to be a man about town, Burt, the sloppily dressed true pessimist who considers himself a realist and Adrienne, a former actress and an eternal optimist who still manages to be a big flirt.

Casting will be held In Summerland and Penticton with 
rehearsals beginning the week of Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. and will be held Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays as well as Sundays, as needed. The production will hit the stage in March.

Interested actors who would like to audition call director Bryan Laver at 250‐493‐6539 or producer Terri Thompson at 250‐462‐0127 for an audition time and location.
