There are many opportunities to get involved in art, music, dance, and community theatre at Th’YARC. Why not audition for a play? Or, if you prefer to stay backstage, why not volunteer as a stage manager or help build a set? Getting involved with local arts groups is a great way to learn new skills and make friends for life.
NOTE: In an effort to sustain affordable ticket prices, we are adopting a new participation model. This model has been embraced by amateur theatre groups across Canada. All actors who are cast in the show are required to be Members of Th’YARC. If you are a member please bring your card with you to the auditions. Annual membership fees are $25 for new members or just $20 for returning members.
A thriller that’s full of twists, Guilty Conscience is a fun and challenging play. Its dry humour, tense moments, and intelligent character work create a gripping show with a great edge-of-your-seat ending.
Auditions will be held on Thursday, September 19th and Friday, September 20th from 6-8 pm. No preparation or experience is required.
If you have any questions, or if you wish to audition but are unable to make the times mentioned, contact the director (James Turpin) at email@example.com or via Facebook.
** Characters Breakdown **
Arthur Jamison (male, approx. 35-50) - Arthur is a famous, rich, and arrogant lawyer whose wife (Louise) has decided to divorce him. As Louise knows of his sketchy legal dealings, Arthur has decided he must kill her to keep her quiet. He is roughly the same age as his wife.
Louise Jamison (female, approx. 35-50) - Louise is a smart, exasperated woman who has grown tired of her husband’s philandering ways and general dismissive attitude towards her. She is roughly the same age as her husband.
Jackie Willis (female, approx. 25-45) - Jackie is a bright yet somewhat naïve woman who is Arthur’s current mistress. To Arthur’s chagrin, he finds he has underestimated her. She is a touch younger than Arthur.
The Prosecutor (male or female, approx. 30-70) - The Prosecutor is an intelligent prosecuting attorney who exists only in Arthur’s imagination. Arthur conjures up this character in order to test various hypothetical murder scenarios against another attorney. The Prosecutor can be male or female, and can be almost any adult age.
