Auditions set for Naughty Knickers

“Winter has us in its icy grip, and the sound of our community’s laughter is the best way to escape it,” says Midway and Beyond Theatre director John Hibberson in announcing auditions for the production of Nana’s Naughty Knickers on the Midway stage.

Auditions will be held next Tuesday, at 7 p.m. in the Midway Community Hall. A quick look on the Internet reveals that this comedy by Katherine DiSavino has brought laughter and delight to many audiences in productions by high school and community theatre groups across the continent.

Online notes briefly describe the plot: Bridget and her Grandmother are about to become roommates. However, what Bridget saw as a unique opportunity to stay with her favourite Nana in New York for the summer quickly turns into an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet Grandma is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five-borough area!

Hibberson says that Nana’s Naughty Knickers needs two younger cast members, one male and one female between the ages 18 – 30. We also need some female cast in the late 60’s– 70’s and several males between 40-55.

“Our aim is to give Old Man Winter a poke in the belly with the sound of laughter,” Hibberson wrote in the theatre group’s latest newsletter. “Sure, rehearsing entails hours of hard work. And there’s plenty of effort needed to memorize one’s lines.

But the end result is you find you’ve made it through these tough, dark days with spring around the corner, you’ve had a great time as part of a creative team and most important you’ve made yourself and our audience laugh so loud the very heaven’s ring with the sound of it.”

Hibberson said casting parts for young adult males is especially difficult. “They are an almost extinct species in many rural areas other than the far north of Alberta,” he laughed.

Plans are for an early March production of the comedy.

For information call John Hibberson at 250-449-2378.
