Spring 2019 - Tempting Providence

ITR will be staging Tempting Providence by Robert Chafe on April 26 to 28 and May 3 to 5. Auditions will be held October 28 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. and October 30 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. at the Osgoode Community Centre in the Fred Alexander Room (main floor).

Tempting Providence is a simple and often humorous tale that recounts the true story of nurse Myra Bennett who left her home in England in 1921 for Newfoundland to serve a community in great need on the remote Great Northern Peninsula. It follows the trials and joys of this courageous woman who became known as the Florence Nightingale of the North and a true Newfoundland legend.

Andre Dimitrijevic will be directing.

We are still looking for an actor for the following part:

Goes from late 20's at the beginning of the play to late 30s by the end. An honest man, hard working and down to earth. Also thoughtful, playful and charming. The perfect man.

A Newfoundland accent is not required for the audition. However, it is hoped that an accent will be acquired for the show. Coaches for the accents will be available during rehearsals.

This audition will be by appointment. Please contact auditions@itrtheatre.com.
