Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

As production of Overbrook’s very own musical kicks into high gear, here’s your chance to get involved! Don’t miss out!

Calling all actors/singers!

We are looking for more actors and singers to complete the cast!

Auditions for Actors and Singers, 6:30 to 8:30 pm, Wednesday, 13 September, Overbrook Community Centre. 

Registration required: Email info@overbrook.ca, giving us your name, age, phone, address and theatre experience.

Calling all accomplished musicians!

We are looking for musicians to make up a small band with guitar, violin, cello, flute and drums. Those who register to audition need to have band experience and be able to play from chord charts.

Auditions for Musicians, 8:30 to 9:30 pm, Wednesday, 13 September at the Overbrook Community Centre. 

Pre-registration required: Email info@overbrook.ca giving your name, age, phone, address, musical instrument played, and experience.

Calling for behind the scenes help!

If being on stage is not your thing, you can still get involved. We need a front-of-house crew to look after ticket sales and distribution, snacks and drinks, ushering, etc. Backstage work includes set construction, acquisition of props, costuming, hair, make-up and helping with backstage management.

Do you have only a couple of hours to spare? Then perhaps you could help get the word out to everyone in Overbrook by helping distribute flyers on a few streets. Love social media? We have a job for you!

Or maybe you have a skill that we haven’t thought about, something that would add a special touch to the show! Please reach out to us and let us know what you would like to do.

Find out more: Email info@overbrook.ca telling us your interests, skills, available volunteer time.

Calling everyone!

Come to a memorable performance! See and hear aspects of our lives depicted and sung on stage! This is your story, Overbrook!


Tickets will be available closer to show dates. Please check our website in October.
