Last Train to Nibroc

Fire Exit Theatre is seeking actors for its November 2023 production of Last Train to Nibroc by Arlene Hutton.


May and Raleigh meet in 1940 on an eastbound train carrying the bodies of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Nathaneal West. Raleigh is unable to enlist in the Army due to a medical condition and is on his way to New York to become a writer. May wishes to be a missionary. As they chat, they discover something in common: they are both from Kentucky. This girl-meets-boy romance follows the couple over time, painting a funny and touching portrait of two young people navigating through a time of war as they search for happiness and what their hearts truly desire.

Directed by Val Lieske.


Rehearsals will begin in earnest in early October 2023 and take place on evenings and weekends. Tech rehearsals are November 19 – 21, 2023 with performances running from November 22 – 26, 2023 at Engineered Air Theatre, Arts Commons.

How to prepare

Please prepare a contemporary monologue of one minute in length. The monologue may comic or dramatic and should be something that you are emotionally connected to rather than a “good character monologue.” Pick something that resembles you at your most truthful. Actors will also be sent a side from the play.

How to sign up

Auditions will take place at Alberta Bible College (635 Northmount Dr. NW) on Tuesday, September 12, 2023 from 6:30-9:30pm.

Please schedule an audition time by emailing Val Lieske at Call backs will be Thursday, September 14, 2023 from 6:30-9:30pm.

We will be auditioning for the following roles:

RALEIGH: 20s, male. From a nearby town. Just a good guy, slow to anger and quick to chuckle.
MAY: Early 20s, female. From a small town in Kentucky. She is sincere and honest in her beliefs.

Fire Exit Theatre is a non-equity semi-professional theatre company. Actor honorariums are paid.
