Winnipeg Mennonite Theatre is hosting its annual general meeting on Wednesday, June 5 at 7:00 pm. The meeting will take place at the First Mennonite Church at 922 Notre Dame in the meeting room on the main floor.
On June 18 we will be hosting an open casting call for our fall and winter productions. This will take place at First Mennonite Church, 922 Notre Dame Ave at 7 pm. We will be casting for the following:
- WMT Fall Production (November 14-17, 2019)
- Tempest Tost (a stage adaptation by Richard Rose from the novel by Robertson Davies)
In Tempest Tost, an amateur theatrical group sets about mounting a production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Romantic young scholar and assistant director “Solly” Bridgetower, womanizer Roger Tasset and repressed middle-aged math teacher Hector Mackilwraith vie for the rich, beautiful and indifferent leading lady Griselda Webster. As the production moves forward, each man presses his suit with characteristic blind-spots as small rivalries and ambitions are pursued by Griselda’s precocious sister “Freddy”, the vain Professor Walter Vambrace, his socially awkward daughter Pearl Vambrace, and the mischievous musician Humphrey Cobbler.
This is a full-length play with 19 characters (ranging in age from 14-80) plus characters from The Tempest. Doubling of roles may be necessary.
Rehearsals are twice per week (including weekends) and begin right after Labour Day in September.
WMT Winter Production – Dates TBD
