Friday, Jan. 28 is the last opportunity for people to apply for the Tin Pants Theatre Company’s 2011 summer season at McLean Mill National Historic Site.

Kerry Robertson is back as artistic director and will accept applications for auditions until Friday.

Robertson is keen on going in new directions with the stage show this year, with a focus on the growing popularity of the spoken word with the addition of puppets on stage and around the site. She is also hoping to develop the script with her cast, making it a creative and collective creation.

“This is a wonderful summer job opportunity, especially for post-secondary students interested in pursuing careers in the theatre” Robertson said. She is looking for applicants with strong acting skills and any other performing talents that they might bring to the table.

Anyone interested should go online to www.alberniheritage.com/tinpants for more information. Resumés, head shots, and covering letters should be e-mailed to tinpantstheatre@gmail.com.
