Millbrook, ON...Are you an adult with a dream to act on the stage? If so, make your dream come true and become involved in 4th Line Theatreĺ─˘s 2009 summer season; learn and work alongside professional actors, directors and designers.

Text Box: This was the first time that I really got up in front of an audience. It was something that I have secretly wanted to do for a long time, but never had the nerve.  The best things in this experience were meeting so many great people and realizing that I could act!ĺ─¨ - Phil Stott, Volunteer Performer2008

Adult auditions will be held at the Old Millbrook School, 1 Dufferin St. (2nd floor) in Millbrook on Saturday, February 14th between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Even if you have limited acting experience but are interested in bringing our regionĺ─˘s history to life on stage in this summerĺ─˘s world premiere productions, donĺ─˘t hesitate to give us a call at 705-932-4448 to book an interview.

Right Road to Pontypool

A loving chronicle of one manĺ─˘s sun kissed dream for Torontoĺ─˘s working class Jews.

Welcome Death

The seasonĺ─˘s 2nd world premiere play, Welcome Death is written and directed by Robert Winslow.

ĺ─˙Whodunitĺ─¨ fans will love this Victorian murder-mystery set right here in Millbrook! In 1873, the discovery of a young womanĺ─˘s body in a field spurs a Coronerĺ─˘s inquest that pushes past the restraints of science and enters the realm of the spirit to find unknowable answers. Based on the archives of the coronerĺ─˘s inquest of Elizabeth Deyellĺ─˘s murder trial, the show will be performed on the intimate Meadow Stage (last used in 2005 for That Summer). Welcome Death will give adult volunteers the opportunity to explore life in ĺ─˙Victorianĺ─¨ Millbrook while acting out a real murder mystery on stage.

Casting requirements

2 Males 15-25 years

1 Male 30-50 years

1 Male 40-60 years

1 Male 50-60 years
