Many Hats Theatre Company is hosting auditions for the 2014 season, which has a great lineup of plays.

“We think we have a great lineup of plays for our audience. There’s a great variety of Canadian, British and French comedy and drama and a fabulous lineup of directors ready to make it all come alive. We want to thank our loyal supporters and invite them all back to check out our exciting 2014 lineup,” said Many Hats executive producer Eric Hanston.

Auditions will be held on the Cannery Stage at 7 p.m. on Oct. 23, on a first-come first-seen basis. Directors for all five shows will be in attendance and participants should expect to be photographed. Headshots are always welcome. Prepared monologues are also a good idea, said Hanston, but cold readings from the scripts may be required.

Many Hats will be producing five shows for their seventh season that begins with For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again, which runs from Feb. 6 to March 1, 2014. Directed by Hanston, this hilarious play has one of the great female characters. Nana is a born storyteller with a love of exaggeration and invention. Many Hats is looking for one male and one female.

This is followed by Boeing Boeing, directed by Josephine Patterson, which runs from April 10 to May 3, 2014. The Tony Award-winning French farce which has been newly adapted for the English-speaking stage, requires two males and four females.

Caught In The Net runs from July 3 to 26, 2014 and is directed by Eleanor Walker. This play requires four males and three females and is focused on taxi driver John Smith who has two families in different parts of London, both happy and blissfully unaware of each other. Smith works on trying to keep them apart as the situation spirals out of control and he outrageously juggles the truth.

Funny and poignant, Quartet is about a home for retired opera singers. Directed by Ed Schneider, this play requires two males and two females and runs Sept. 11 to Oct. 4, 2014.

In their final show of the season, Many Hats is running Marion Bridge from Nov. 13 to Dec. 6, 2014. The humorous and touching story of three sisters, two of whom return home to Nova Scotia to help the third sister care for their dying mother. The trio search for the courage to create a new family from the remnants of the old. Marion Bridge was nominated for a Governor General’s Award and requires three females.
