Keyano Theatre Co. Auditions

Misery Auditions

Auditions are being held for Keyano Theatre Company's production of Misery by Stephen King, adapted for the stage by William Goldman.

Auditions are open for any interested adult actors (25+) who wish to participate. Actors of all genders, ethnicities, and physical abilities are encouraged to audition.


Based on Stephen King's book of the same name, Misery follows successful romance novelist Paul Sheldon, who is rescued from a car crash by his "number one fan" Annie Wilkes, and wakes up captive in her secluded home. WHile Paul is convalescing, Annie reads his latest book and becomes enraged when she discovers the author has killed off her favourite character, Misery Chastain. Annie forces Paul to write a new Misery novel, and he quickly realizes Annie has no intention of letting him go anywhere. The irate Annie has Paul writing as if his life depends on it, and it does.

Please note that this production depicts some extreme physical violence. Please read our Statement on Moments of Violence for more information.


At this time, masks are not required by Keyano Theatre & Arts Centre, however we are mask-friendly, should you be more comfortable rehearsing in a mask. Unless otherwise mandated, actors will be performing without a mask when the show goes live on stage.

Keyano Theatre Company will be taking lessons learne dover the past several years to reduce the transmissions of any illness through our cast. This will include additional hand and respiratory hygiene, cleaning and careful handling of props and costumes. Occasional mask use may be requested in extended instances of very close contact between actors or any time a potential "bug" is passing through a family. We want to eliminate the typical "cast cold" that used to move regularly through a rehearsal process.

Keyano Theatre Comany will require that everyone involved with the production comply with all current (and future) mandated health requirement.
