Actors and production staff wanted for Nelson’s theater show

End of auditions on May 7 for Donuts of Mass Destruction

Donuts of Mass Destruction, the Kootenay Musical Theater Society production written by Doug Jamieson, is looking for three performers to complete the June 17-19 cast.

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

The show aired fully in 2021, when the show was postponed due to a spike in COVID-19. Almost all the cast members are on board for the June tour, except for the following paid positions: a narrator-guide, two actor-puppeteers, an actor and two young singers (recording only).

In addition, there are openings for members of the production team (also paid positions) for setting up and taking down sets and lighting.

Please spread the word. Show dates are coming up fast!
