Auditions for FIVE ALARM
By Canadian Playwright Kristen da Silva
Directed by: Nicky Anderton

Time: by appointment starting at 7 pm
Where: Metro Theatre, 1370 SW Marine Drive, Vancouver
A fairground in Lumby, BC, where every year, a Chili Cook-Off is held at the municipal fair. Ava is determined to win after 16 years of trying. The event is named after her father – “The Chili King”. Her rival is a former childhood friend. Her enthusiastic, and wildly optimistic assistant has no culinary expertise, except cleaning out the zoo cages. What could go wrong? This hilarious send up by a new Canadian playwright is a great start to Metro’s season!
