Get In On the Act

Casting for John Spurway’s Off The Grid, which will run this summer at Victoria Playhouse. Martha and Len are living “off the grid” for a week in a remote rental home while they celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary. Len is reluctant from the outset, instead preferring creature comforts like TV and the internet. With a sharp wit and a flare for the over-dramatic, Len’s distaste for roughing it turns into a genuine concern for their safety when they encounter their sketchy neighbor Lowell, who by Len’s reckoning, appears to be plotting to kill them.We are seeking to cast one actor of approximately 35 to 40 years of age. Good sense of comedic timing. Sardonic. Playful in an ironic sense. Any ethnicity. Male identifying. Please prepare a 2 minute contemporary comedic monologue and submit, along with headshot and resume, to emily@victoriaplayhouse.com.

Sprucing Up the Past

Amy recently spent some time touching up the faded lettering on this plaque that honours veterans of the First World War from the community of Victoria. A second plaque at the Victoria Playhouse honours Second World War and Korean Conflict veterans. Many of the family names on these plaques can still be found in the community today!

We welcomed three of the Island’s most talented singer-songwriters to the Victoria Playhouse for the last two days. They were making a video on our stage. It was wonderful to hear live music in our beautiful hall again and we look forward to more events happening soon. Thanks Catherine MacLellan, Tim Chaisson and Rachel Beck for choosing to come to Victoria.
