“Fawlty Towers Revise”

Calling all Basil Fawltys! We are holding unofficial auditions for the character of Basil Fawlty from the British sitcom, Fawlty Towers! Performed three times before, Workshop Theatre would like to revise this hilarious production for a final time to celebrate our 50th anniversary next season!

Synopsis:The series is set in Fawlty Towers, a fictional hotel in the seaside town of Torquay on the “English Riviera“. The plots centre on the tense, rude and put-upon owner Basil Fawlty, his bossy wife Sybil, the sensible chambermaid Polly, who often is the peacemaker and voice of reason, and the hapless and English-challenged Spanish waiter Manuel, showing their attempts to run the hotel amidst farcical situations and an array of demanding and eccentric guests and tradespeople.

When: Auditions are April 8th at 7PM
Where: Workshop Theatre Rehearsal Space. Bay H 1003 55th Ave NE

Please note that casting auditions at this time are only for the possible role of Basil Fawlty.
Additional casting would be later in the year. This show is not yet a confirmed production for our next season. Confirmation depends on possible Basil Fawlty candidates. Please email to confirm your audition.
Also please provide a headshot and resume (if available) upon arrival.
