It’s time for Deep Cove Stage’s Annual Christmas Pantomime, this year written by Deep Cove’s own Toph Whitmore! The hottest boy band in the world, Six Degrees of Togetherness ("6DOT" for short), is headed to Deep Cove for a concert. But the members of 6DOT are mysteriously disappearing! Could the Beast of Mt. Seymour be behind it? On the case is self-described local actress, bon vivant, and humanitarian Penelope Nelopy. Joining Penelope in her quest is new arrival Caroline Goodness, RCMP detective Jenkins (a horse who worked his way up from the Musical Ride), a police chief, a sinister real estate developer named Hunter Green, a couple of nutty sidekicks (Rosenstern & Guildenkrantz), an evil witch, a “merman,” and Brock Rockton, North Shore Search & Rescue’s best. Will they find the missing boy band members? Is the Beast real? Will anyone find love? And most importantly, will they make it back in time for the big show? (Maybe, maybe, maybe, and maybe…)


Please wear clothes and footwear that is comfortable for moving around in. Arrive early for your time slot, as you will need to fill in some paperwork before entering the audition room, and be prepared to stay for the full half hour.
*Headshots and resumes are NOT required*

Role # 1 Penelopy Nelopy
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Penelope is the “Dame” archetype. She plays narrator, tour guide, talk-show host, and RCMP officer. She knows everyone and everything, can command a room easily, and has an ego bigger than her bra. Ad-libbing and audience interaction ability is a must. Look at ‘Moira Rose’ from “Schitt’s Creek” for some inspiration.

Role # 3 Witchitanya
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Witchitanya is the “Evil Witch/Demon King” archetype. She is Deep Cove’s resident evil spirit and speaks (only partially successfully) in rhyme. Fierce, bitter, and subject to mood swings, she allies herself with evil Hunter Green. Oh, and she used to date Karl, back before she came evil. But we don’t talk about that.

Role # 4 Karl the Merman
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Karl is the “Good Fairy” archetype. He is the renowned Merman of the Cove and self-described ‘friend of the animals, protector of nature, and part-time barista’. He speaks in an off-hand, matter-of fact way, with a certain air of masculinity that contradicts his magical appearance and kind hobbies. Think ‘Kronk’ from “The Emperor’s New Groove” , and mix that with the ‘Old Spice Guy’ and a dash of ‘Captain Hammer’ from “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”

Role # 5 Liam
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

6DOT member: Liam is “the pretty one” and the leader of the group. Not the sharpest tool in the shed, but charismatic and accustomed to having people follow him. Has probably never been told ‘no.’ Think Derek Zoolander.

Role # 10 Murray
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

6DOT member: Murray is … “just Murray” . He is anachronistically balding and middle aged, something that is never explained and makes him stick out like a sore thumb from the other band members. He is considerably less suave than his bandmates, always a bit too slow or a bit too loud and his poses are always a little … off. The band’s 6th wheel.

Role # 13 Hunter Green
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Hunter Green is the “Bad Guy” archetype. Australian accent required! This accent inspires some interesting entrance music. Hunter is, of course, a hunter, set on adding the Beast’s head to his wall of trophies. He is also a real estate developer who wants to flatten and pave Mount Seymour to build condos. He is loud, mean, selfish and angry. Think ‘Gaston’ from “Beauty and the Beast”

Role # 14 Rosenstern
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

These are the ‘sidekick duo’ archetype. They are sidekicks to Hunter Green, and constantly seek his approval. Neither of them are very bright, or brave. Rosenstern is braver than Guildenkrantz, but not by much.
