Many Hats Theatre Company is holding auditions for their upcoming eighth season which opens in February 2015.

Auditions will be held on the Cannery Stage at 7 p.m. on Oct. 22. Directors for all five shows will be in attendance. Many Hats will be taking photographs, but headshots and resumes are always welcome. Those auditioning should prepare monologues, but cold readings from the scripts may be required.

Starting their season is Getting Sara Married, running Feb. 12 to March 7. The comedy is directed by Jamie Eberle and is about a woman (Aunt Martha) who wants to get her reluctant niece married at any cost. Martha’s method of doing it amounts to the prospective groom being bopped over the head and brought to her nieces apartment. The young man is already engaged to be married, but Martha won’t let that deter her.

Shooting Star, directed by Jeanne Wnuk, will run from April 9 to May 2 The romantic comedy is about college lovers who have an unexpected and life-altering reunion at an airport.

Director Eric Hanston will take on Nana’s Naughty Knickers, running July 2 to 25. The story follows Bridget and her grandmother who are about to become roommates. When Bridget arrives in New York for the summer she finds her sweet grandma running an illegal boutique from her apartment selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the area.

Many Hats Theatre will then take a serious turn as Ed Schneider directs Doubt, a play by John Patrick Shanley. The drama is about a strict nun who believes a priest has done something terribly inappropriate to one of the students. This will run Sept. 10 to Oct. 3.

To end the 2015 season, director Jane Pilkey is looking to cast for The Game’s Afoot. From Nov. 12 to Dec. 5 the whodunit play where a Broadway star, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited fellow cast-members to his home for a weekend of revelry. One of the guests is stabbed to death and it is up to the Broadway star to take on the persona of Homes to track down the killer.

All plays listed for the 2015 season are under consideration and subject to availability of rights.

Many Hats Theatre Company is a co-operative theatre company which means everyone involved in a production receives a share of the proceeds. The company was founded in 2007 and produces five plays a year on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre in Penticton.
