Auditions February 14th, 16th, 18th for “Laugh On”
Auditions for the Dundas County Players’ (DCP) June 2018 production of “Laugh On”, a cabaret/variety show, will be held in the theatre at the Old Town Hall, 478 Main St., Winchester, Ontario on:
- Wednesday, February 14 from 7pm-9pm for singers and other performers

Performers needed include: singers, actors, dancers, jugglers, magicians and others, both male and female of any age.
This show will be performed from Friday June 15 to Sunday June 24, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. Rehearsals will begin mid-March. It is produced by JP Leduc and directed by Amanda Burger, with Musical Direction by Colleen Howard. Tickets go on sale mid May.
“Laugh On”, will be a combination of both structured and collaboratively work-shopped cabaret/variety acts, loosely based on the 1960’s television show “Laugh In.” We want a diverse line-up of music from the 60’s and 70’s that will include “show tunes”, pop and rock, folk, jazz and blues standards. Singers are asked to choose a song amongst these types of music. Interspersed between the music and other acts will be comedy sketches done by the “actors”. Therefore, people who do not wish to sing/dance etc but are interested in acting are also invited to audition.
Please note: Unless singers accompany themselves with a musical instrument, all songs must be available on Karaoke track. Please ensure prior to auditioning a Karaoke track can be obtained for the song you wish to perform. There is no need to buy the karaoke track for the audition, instead be prepared to sing it ‘a cappella.’
Auditions will be scheduled to ensure performers are not waiting a long time. To reserve a time slot, please contact Amanda Burger (email@example.com or call 613-346-5064).
THE 39 STEPS
Adapted by Patrick Barlow
From a novel by John Buchan
From the movie of Alfred Hitchcock
Directed by Tony Glen
Murder, intrigue, suspense. Planes, trains, automobiles. 139 zany characters played by a cast of 10!
Patrick Barlow’s comic adaptation of The 39 Steps lovingly recreates Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 thriller for the stage. When Richard Hannay is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he finds himself pursued by German spies, entangled with mysterious women and caught up in an elaborate plot with the fate of the country at his feet!
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre.
