Actors, production staff needed for Nelson theatre show

Auditions close May 7 for Donuts of Mass Destruction

Submitted by Kootenay Musical Theatre Society

Donuts of Mass Destruction, the Kootenay Musical Theatre Society production written by Doug Jamieson, is looking for three performers to round out the cast for the June 17 to 19 run.

The show will be staged in Cottonwood Falls Park using different locations for the six scenes. Since the audience moves from scene to scene, actors are only required to perform in one scene! Consequently, rehearsals will only involve two performers.

The show was fully cast in 2021, when the show was postponed due to a COVID-19 spike. Almost all cast members are on board for the June run, with the exception of the following paid positions: One Narrator-Guide, two actor-puppeteers, one actor and two young singers (recording only).

In addition, there are openings for production team members (also paid positions) for set assembly and disassembly, and lighting.

Please spread the word. The show dates are coming up quickly!
