HEISENBERG
The Stirling Players

Written By: Written By: Simon Stephens
Directed By: Aldo Longobardi

Georgie is an ‘exhausting but captivating’ woman in her forties from New Jersey and living in London. Alex, in his 70s, is a quiet, introverted Irish butcher and eternal bachelor who is unused to and suspicious of romantic attention.

Georgie and Alex are perfect strangers and complete opposites who share one significant thing in common: they are both deeply lonely having lost the people who meant most to them. When Georgie accidentally kisses the back of Alex’s neck in St Pancras Station, mistaking him for someone else, the pair are drawn together into something that is part romance, part friendship, and part experiment in embracing the uncertain. But is Georgie masterminding the situation? Why is the steadfast Alex so willing to be moved by the erratic Georgie? And is Georgie all that she appears to be?

Heisenberg gets its title from the Heisenberg uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics which states that the position and velocity of an object cannot be measured simultaneously, even theoretically, and that the act of measuring an object’s speed changes its position, and vice versa. Simon Stephen’s Heisenberg is a quirky romantic comedy and character study that observes the uncertainty of the human heart.

Roles Available:
GEORGIE BURNS (female) Early 40s*
Rightly describes herself as ‘exhausting but captivating’. From New Jersey now living in London. Hides her experience of pain and loss behind her brazen personality and frenetic energy. She talks and swears a lot, has little to no regard for personal space, and spins ever-changing and probably made-up stories which begs the question of her trustworthiness. American accent required.

ALEX PRIEST (male) Mid 70s*
Georgie describes him as ‘the shy, brooding, intellectual type.’ Irish. Runs a failing butcher shop. Never married. He experienced a lot of emotional trauma in his early childhood which has seen him find safety and security in a life of order, routine and predictability. Irish accent required.

‘ON STAGE CREW’ (multiple roles available, any gender) 18+
The on stage crew will assist in facilitating costume and set changes between scenes as part of the performance through choreographed physical theatre sequences. While these sequences facilitate smooth and seamless scene changes, they also reflect, enhance, and extend on the ideas presented in the scenes and help move the story forward. These are non-speaking crew roles that require a high degree of creativity and performance through physical and facial expression and stylised movement.

*Georgie and Alex will have some involvement with the on stage crew during scene changes so actors should expect to participate in some simple stylised movement sequences.

Rehearsals:
A read through and introduction of cast, on stage and off stage crew and production team will be arranged prior to commencement of rehearsals.

Rehearsals will commence mid-June 2020.

Rehearsals will take place:

BLITHE SPIRIT
University of Adelaide Theatre Guild

Written By: Noel Coward
Directed By: Megan Dansie

This haunting play is one of Noel Coward’s most popular comedies.

Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, wishes to learn about the occult for a novel he is writing, and he arranges for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house. At the séance, she inadvertently summons Charles's first wife, Elvira, who has been dead for seven years. Only Charles can see or hear Elvira. The ghostly Elvira makes continued, and increasingly desperate, efforts to disrupt Charles's current marriage. She finally sabotages his car in the hope of killing him so that he will join her in the spirit world, but it is Ruth rather than Charles who drives off and is killed.

Ruth's ghost immediately comes back for revenge on Elvira, and Charles calls Madame Arcati back to exorcise both of the spirits, but instead of banishing them she unintentionally materialises Ruth. With both his dead wives now fully visible, and neither of them in the best of tempers, Charles, together with Madame Arcati, goes through séance after séance and spell after spell to try to exorcise them. It is not until Madame Arcati works out that the housemaid, Edith, is psychic and had unwittingly been the conduit through which Elvira was summoned that she succeeds in dematerialising both ghosts. Charles is left seemingly in peace, but Madame Arcati, hinting that the ghosts may still be around unseen, warns him that he should go far away as soon as possible.

Roles Available:
Edith – female, stage age 17 to 30s – She is the maid for Charles and Ruth. Always in a hurry, lovely comedic part. Lower-class English accent required – regional or London.

Dr Bradshaw – male - 35 to 55 – the local doctor and friend of the Condomines. He and his wife attend the séances. Upper class English accent required.

SOUTH PACIFIC IN CONCERT
South Coast Choral and Arts Society (SCCAS)

Written By: Music by Richard Rodgers Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II Book by Joshua Logan Adapted by David Ives
Directed By: JJ Geelen (Director), Guy Mansbridge (Musical Director), Dean Constable (Vocal Director)

To celebrate South Coast Choral and Arts Society's 70 Anniversary, we will be performing the concert version of the much loved musical SOUTH PACIFIC.

Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.

Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was and island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile's proposal of marriage.

Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tokinese girl with whom he's fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie.

When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe's life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her own prejudices.

This concert adaptation was created by David Ives for the Carnegie Hall benefit concert of SOUTH PACIFIC in 2006.

This production will a concert version with Cast in costumes, Orchestra and Vocal Ensemble (part of orchestra) in formal wear.

Roles Available:
ENSIGN NELLIE FORBUSH: Female to play Caucasian, late twenties. Our heroine, Nellie is a military nurse with a sense of optimism, in spite of the looming peril of war. A product of her Southern upbringing in Little Rock, Arkansas, Nellie struggles with her own racism when she falls in love with Emile DeBeque, an older Frenchman living in the South Pacific who is raising 2 children of mixed race. The actress must have a sincerity that defies her faults and subtle comic timing. Mezzo-soprano to Db5 with good belt mix and good mover.

EMILE DE BECQUE: Male to play Caucasian, mid-forties. Emile is a wealthy, cultured and self-made French plantation owner. In spite of the character’s worldliness and sophistication, the actor must be capable of revealing the darker side of a man who once committed murder in self-defense. Legit bass/baritone [A2 – E4]

LIEUTENANT JOSEPH CABLE: Male to play Caucasian, early twenties. Cable is a young, handsome officer with a bright military future. Having served in active combat, Cable is struggling with the after effects of trauma. In spite of the unspoken rules of his privileged Philadelphia upbringing, Cable falls in love with Liat, a young Tonkinese girl. The actor must have a strong physical presence and be believable as a hot shot Marine. Soaring tenor (E3 to G4).

BLOODY MARY: Female to play Tonkinese (prefer Islander or South East Asian background), 35-55. Mary is a shrewd and abrasive woman who is cunningly capitalizing on the war by selling souvenirs to the American sailors occupying her island. She is fiercely protective of her teen aged daughter Liat and is searching to find her a suitable husband. The actress must have great comedic timing. Mezz-soprano to C5 with good belt mix.

LUTHER BILLIS: Male to play Caucasian, 30-45. Luther is a lovable “wheeler dealer”; a conniving and mediocre entrepreneur. He is a friend to all but is hampered by his lust for the ladies and his fascination with island trinkets. The actor must be a funny everyman who is believable as an army tradesman; Bass/baritone down to G2.

CAPTAIN GEORGE BRACKETT: Male to play Caucasian, 40-60. Brackett is a pompous but competent navy officer who hides a heart of gold. With a roaring bark, he is known as “Old Iron Belly”.

COMMANDER HARBISON :Male to play Caucasian, 35-50. Harbison is an officious Navy man and Brackett's second-in-command.

Through Michener’s short stories, we learn that Harbison had a romantic relationship with Nellie Forbush that ended when he physically assaulted her.

LIAT:Female to play Tonkinese (prefer Islander or South East Asian background), mid to late teens. Liat is a beautiful, young girl who is heartbreakingly delicate and the picture of purity. The actress must move well or have a dance background. Non singing role; all physically suitable submissions encouraged, in spite of acting background.

PROFESSOR: Male, 25-35. Professor earned his nickname because he is one of the few Seabees to have attended college; a character man of the studious type who jumps to problem solving in order to make up for his lack of physical strength.

SAILORS: Males of varied ethnic backgrounds to play featured roles, late teens to mid-thirties; the heart and soul of our story. These young men from across the United States are pulled from their everyday lives to defend their country by putting their lives on the line. They find a sense of community in each other that temporarily replaces family and loved ones. Their fascination with Bloody Mary serves as a distraction to the impending dangers ahead. Strong singers with varied vocal ranges. Dance experience a plus but not mandatory.

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
Marie Clark Musical Theatre

Written By: Lyrics by TIM RICE
Music by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER
Directed By: Director - MATT SMITH
Musical Director - SERENA MARTINO-WILLIAMS
Choreographer - MADELINE EDWARDS
Assistant to the Choreographer - CELESTE BARONE

The biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colours comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favourite son, is blessed with prophetic dreams. He is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, where he endures a series of adventures that continually challenges his spirit and humanity. He is purchased by the powerful Potiphar, then thrown into prison for refusing the advances of Potiphar's wife. While in prison, news of Joseph's ability to interpret dreams catches the attention of the Pharaoh, and this begins Joseph's rise from slave to second-in-command.

Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, and featuring high-energy songs and well-known powerful ballads (including “Those Canaan Days”, “Any Dream Will Do”, and “Close Every Door”), it’s no wonder this Old Testament tale has become a fan-favourite musical hit the world over.

Choreography: needs to be fit, this role requires a good mover/dancer.

JACOB
Male (stage age 50-60)

POTIPHAR
Male (stage age 45-45)
Vocal range: stern and warm; D3 - C4
Character description: A powerful and rich Egyptian, Potiphar purchases Joseph and puts him to work in his household, where he soon realises that Joseph is honest, hardworking, and a great addition to his pool of help.

Usually doubles as Jacob in most productions.
Choreography: minimal movement.

MRS POTIPHAR
Female (stage age 25-35, dependent on the age of Potiphar)
Vocal range: D3 - C4
Character description: Beautiful, self-indulgent and scheming, Mrs Potiphar tries to seduce Joseph but is unsuccessful. However, she manages to stage a compromising scene with an unwilling Joseph that Potiphar sees and misconstrues, leading him to condemn Joseph to prison. Mrs Potiphar is usually played by one of the wives in most productions.

PHARAOH
Male (stage age 35-50)
Vocal range: rock ‘n’ roll (in the style of Elvis Presley); B3 - A4

LES MISERABLES
Now Productions

Written By: Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schonberg & Herbert Kretzmer
Directed By: Joe Russell & Bianca Woods

Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 65 million people worldwide, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. This true modern classic is based on Victor Hugo's novel and features one of the most memorable scores of all time.

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe that Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter. His world view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean finally attains the peace that he has sought for so long.

Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. A spectacle on Broadway and in London, Les Misérables is equally effective with a minimal set; it is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made Les Misérables a popular masterpiece.

OF MICE AND MEN
Therry Dramatic Society

Written By: John Steinbeck
Directed By: Geoff Brittain

1930s American mid-west - tells the story of George Milton and Lennie Small, two displaced migrant ranch workers, who move from place to place in California in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression in the United States.

Roles Available:
George Milton (stage age 30-40)
Small in stature, yet kind, intelligent, and hard-working, George's potential is unlimited, but his circumstances are not. He is displaced, uneducated, and unfulfilled. He dreams of a better life, he dreams of self-reliance, and of living up to his potential.

Lennie Small (stage age 30-40)
Lennie Small is a large, gentle-hearted migrant worker who has a mental disability. He relies on George Milton, his lifelong friend and fellow migrant worker, for guidance and safety. He is a classic gentle giant, never seeking to cause harm, but his physical power unintentionally leads to destruction.

Curley (stage age 25-30)
He is the foreman of the ranch and he's also the ranch owner's son. He struts around authoritatively and is rumoured to be a former Golden Gloves boxer. He's a small man with a huge chip on his shoulder, embodying the classic Napoleon complex, in which a person of small stature tries to prove his toughness through attitude and aggression. He is, very jealous and protective of his wife, and he frequently fears she is flirting with the other workers.

Curley's wife (stage age 20-25)
She is never given a name and is instead seen as a symbol of the random dangers that lurk around every corner. She is beautiful but lonely, and her husband is cruel and indifferent toward her. She once aspired to the glamorous life of a star, but now finds herself stranded on a dusty farm in the middle of nowhere.

Candy (stage age 55-65)
Candy is an aging ranch handyman who lost his hand years ago in an accident. As a result of both his disability and his age, Candy worries about his future on the farm.

Crooks (stage age 35-60 African American)
Crooks, who got his nickname because of his misshapen back, is a stable hand and the sole African American worker on the ranch. Because of his race, Crooks is bitter and cynical, but nevertheless gets along well with Lennie, who doesn't share the other workers' racism.

Slim (stage age 40-50)
Slim is the consummate Western man: masterful, strong, fair-minded, practical, non-talkative, and exceptionally good at what he does. He is a god among men, and his word on any subject is law.

Carlson (stage age 40-60)
After years of working on a ranch and only looking out for himself, Carlson has become mean. He's a bitter, coarse, ugly man who only thinks about himself.

The Boss (stage age 50-60)
Is a stocky, well-dressed man in charge of the ranch, and Curley's father. He seems to be a fair-minded man.

Whit (stage age 20-30)
A young ranch-hand.

SKYLIGHT
Verendus Theatrical

Written By: David Hare
Directed By: Tim Williams

This will be the South Australian premiere of “Skylight” – written by David Hare in 1995 and first produced by The National Theatre where it won an Olivier Award for Best Play. Revived in 2015 it won 2015 Tony® Award for Best Revival of a Play.
On a chilly night in East London, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit from Tom Sergeant, Kyra’s one-time boss and long-time lover. After the painful (and unresolved) dissolution of Tom and Kyra’s relationship, the pair have pulled away from each other physically, emotionally, and ideologically, as Tom continues to focus on his business ventures and Kyra donates her time to teaching the underprivileged. Tom and Kyra grapple with each other, moving between tender passion and vicious political polemics, as the night darkens and the lines between past and present begin to blur.

Skylight is a complex, thought-provoking, and remarkably timeless drama about power, politics and passion.

Roles Available:
EDWARD - Age 18

The son of Tom, the role bookends the main action between Tom and Kyra. It is still a significant role - a dialogue with Kyra - totalling about 25 minutes on stage.
