Calling Cast and Crew for HILDA’S YARD

Sam and Hilda are starting to enjoy life on their own, but their calm existence is rudely interrupted when their grown children suddenly ask to move back home. Gary is on the run from some thugs, and Janey is dreaming of divorce. So much for the blissful peace of their parents’ empty nest!
This Norm Foster comedy will start Markham Little Theatre’s 2019/2020 season, running at Backstage on September 5-7, 11-14, and 18-21.
We are seeking cast and crew for our new-to-MLT director Judi Cragg!
