Attention all thespians! The Revelstoke Theatre Company is  holding its first script-reading night  this Sunday, November 8, Castle Joe Books starting at 7 pm.

Wait a minute! What’s a script reading?

“We get together and read a script,” Darren McKay said in an e-mail to The Current. “This is a casual gathering, we will assign roles and just have a ton of fun reading through a play. If you just want to sit and listen that’s fine to! This is not an audition! As a matter of fact, since this is just a read-through so there is no limit on what roles you can take. Feel like being completely out of character or playing a role that’s 30 years older then you?”

Due to the size and length of the originally selected play, “Noises Off”  organizers changed the script for will the reading. It will be
Carmen Dick: Feminist Private Eye by Brian E. Rochlin (Ten Minute Plays) and 7 Stories by Morris Panych. Scripts will be provided.

The Safe Spaces Society is holding its first-ever annual general meeting (AGM) on Monday, November 16, at the Community Centre starting at 7 pm.
“AGMs are intended to be a ‘recap’ of the last year (as opposed to a regular monthly business meeting) and usually not very long,” Chairman Martin Ralph said in an e-mail to The Revelstoke Current. “A good AGM should not be very long, unless there are lots of new members or questions.”
The society was founded last year to help ensure that our community remains a welcoming and tolerant society.
