Auditions will be held on Saturday May 23 at the Boltenhouse Heritage Centre in the upstairs of the Octagonal House (29 Queen’s Road) from 3:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.. No experience or advance preparation is required.
Below is a sample of a short monologue from the show in case actors want to read it for their audition, but as always, auditionees are welcome to prepare anything they want! Note that we are not producing the musical version of this show, so no singing is required.
James: We’d need hundreds of yards of string to make this work.. Silkworm! And Spider! You can spin! Can you make enough between you? And would it be strong? We’re going to lift this peach clear out of the water! We can use the seagulls! I’m going to take a long silk string and loop one end of it around the seagull’s neck. And then I’m going to tie the other end to the stem of the peach. Then I’m going to get another seagull and do the same thing again, and then another… there’s no shortage of seagulls. I will simply go on hooking them up to the stem until we have enough to lift us. It’s like balloons. You give someone enough balloons to hold, I mean really enough, then up he goes. And a seagull has far more lifting power than a balloon. But we’ve got to hurry! Look down there! Action stations! There’s not a moment to lose!
