Peninsula Players is looking for Fawlty actors

The Peninsula Players are holding auditions for their spring production of Fawlty Towers.

The Peninsula Players are holding auditions for their spring production of Fawlty Towers.

Approximately nine men and five women will be cast, but Director Matt Watson said those numbers are flexible.

“Right now some of the casting I’m looking at would be people playing multiple roles,” he told the PNR.

The format will be cold readings at the Mary Winspear Centre taking place Jan. 10 from 4 to 6 p.m., Jan. 11 from 7 to 9 p.m., Jan. 17 from 4 to 6 p.m. and Jan. 18 from 7 to 9 p.m.

The play itself is a compilation of some of the episodes from Fawlty Towers, which was a British comedy series written by John Cleese and his wife. The play takes place in a hotel run by owner Basil Fawlty and is a compilation of some of the adventures that happen inside the hotel.

There is a main cast of characters, which Watson said will be specific actors or actresses all the way through. There will also be actors playing guests — they will be playing multiple roles.

Watson said auditions are open to anyone, whether they have acting experience or not.

The spring shows will take place at the Mary Winspear Centre from May 5 to the 9. For more information on the shows, people can visit the website at thepeninsulaplayers.ca and for those who have questions on auditioning can call Watson at 250-656-5937.
