Belfry Theatre Audition Notice For the independent short film HATTIE’S HEIST

AUDITION DATE: Monday, Sept. 9, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

STORY: Hattie is an impoverished senior who is inspired by Canada’s favourite anchor man Lloyd Robertson, media maven Moses Znaimer and the Queen to embrace the future. She forms a gang to rob a bank and shares the spoils with her peers – a modern Robin Hood. When she discovers her suitor is a retired RCMP officer, her life gets complicated.

ROLES: We are looking for seven female seniors with acting experience and a sense of adventure to play members of Hattie’s gang, four of whom will have dialogue. It would be useful to have some dance training mainly because you must be limber enough to participate in a Tai Chi class and strong enough to pick up a walker and run (not far). Two of you must be willing to learn how to ride four-wheel scooter and one, an electric wheelchair. We supply machines and a handsome instructor.

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS: Please be prepared to tell a joke or a funny story. If you have a sweat suit, preferably colourful, please wear it. We’ll be testing for walker capabilities.

POLICEWOMAN: We are also looking for a young female police officer.

NOTE: We will be filming the audition.

FILM DATES: You must commit to four days on set from Sept. 28th to Oct. 1 and provide your own transportation to locations: two days Fernwood, one day Willows Beach and Anderson Park and one day interior Hattie’s house in Oak Bay. In addition to having a lot of fun, you will receive an honorarium and meals.

AUDITION ADDRESS: Take the door at the base of the Belfry overlooking the square- 1291 Gladstone Ave. You’ll see the sign.

APPOINTMENT: To book a time, please contact Elicia Harris, 250-208-2024
