Actors needed for Surrey Little Theatre’s spring production

Auditions for the drama The Drawer Boy will be held Feb. 2 and 3 at Surrey Little Theatre.

Surrey Little Theatre is holding auditions for its zone drama festival entry, The Drawer Boy, written by Michael Healey, and directed by June Ainsworth.

Auditions are Sunday, Feb. 2, at 2 p.m., and Monday, Feb. 3 at 7 p.m., at Surrey Little Theatre, 7027 184 St.. The Drawer Boy will be performed from April 17 to May 17, with three matinees. It will also be entered in the zone festival May 18 to 24.

Two males aged between 55 and 65 are needed, plus a male in his 20s.

The Drawer Boy replays the adventures of a young actor from a Toronto theatre group who visits the rural Ontario home of two elderly bachelors in order to research farm life for a new play.

The two farmers have achieved a precarious balance in their lives. One, Morgan, is a tough-minded, stubborn man who cares for Angus, who suffered brain damage and lost his memory during the London Blitz in the Second World War.

In telling the story, the young actor reawakens Angus’s memory.
