Open Auditions for a Prince!

Actor required for the world premiere of The Ugly Princess by Heather Morrow, to be performed at StageStruck!, the Edmonton Regional One-Act Festival, 27-28 February 2015.

Auditions on 28 November 2014, from 7 to 9 pm, at Workshop West Playwrights Theatre, 11516 103 Street, for the role of Prince Eric, 20s or 30s.

Oogam is the crown princess of the rich, tiny kingdom of Halla, but she is also genuinely ugly. Her father, King Harald, has been declared insane. The king, the ugly princess, and her cousin the duchess have been shut away in a remote castle with only one smarmy servant. And when the proverbial handsome prince Eric insists on visiting Halla’s royal family, he brings an unexpected storybook ending.

If you’re interested in auditioning for this show, monologues are welcome but not necessary: sides will be provided. This is an amateur festival, unpaid. We cannot see Equity or ACTRA members.

Writing a new Fringe play? Still working on one? This is the place to be…

Happy 2014!

To start the year off, APN is hosting a playwrights circle in Edmonton. I’ve done writing workshops with Conni Massing before – she is a wonderful teacher and writer.

Edmonton Playwrights’ Circle with Conni Massing

Workshop West Playwrights’ Theatre, Epic Main Hall

Staff Contact- Tracy Carroll:

Cost: $300.00

The Playwrights’ Circle offers emerging and mid-career playwrights an excellent opportunity to start and finish a first draft of a play or to continue working on a project that they’ve already started. It is designed to keep playwrights working in a focused and supportive environment.

Conni Massing has been facilitating our Circles for many years and continues to offer great insight and guidance to all of the writers involved in these sessions.
