PIRATES OF PENZANCE - BROADWAY VERSION
Therry Dramatic Society

Written By: Music by Arthur Sullivan, lyrics by W.S. Gilbert – presented on Broadway by Joseph Papp with musical adaptation by William Elliott.
Directed By: Ric Trevaskis
Musical Director Mark Sandon
Choreographer Thomas Phillips

Everyone’s favourite operetta – a wonderful, silly, outrageous romp with buccaneers, brigands, policemen and ditzy young maidens aplenty. A tender-hearted band of pirates (made up of orphans unable to harm anyone of similar background) are celebrating Frederic's coming of age and looming release from his apprenticeship to them. He joined them as a child owing to a mistake by Ruth, his nursemaid, who misheard his father's instructions to apprentice him to a pilot. She has remained with Frederic and is desperate to marry him. But Frederic has met and fallen in love with Mabel

Roles Available:
MALE ROLES:
Pirate King
The leader of the pirates. Despite his sharp and loud bark, he is actually a whole-hearted romantic with a soft bite. A handsome man typically found with an open shirt and wind in his hair. Needs good sense of comedy.
Stage age: 35-ish Voice: Baritone (A#2- F4)

Major-General Stanley
A father with many daughters. He resembles a male Queen Victoria in his sensibilities. Possesses kindness, warmth, and good-humour. The love for his daughters is undeniable – he is a soft touch. Good sense of comedy.
Stage age: 45+ Voice: Character baritone (Bb2 -E4)

Frederic
A young pirate. He is unaffected and possesses an unselfconscious sex appeal. Boyish, genuine and innocent. The classic hero.
Stage age: 21 Voice: Tenor (Bb2 - G4)

Samuel
The Pirate King's right-hand man. Samuel is clever but easily manipulated and influenced. Needs good sense of comedy.
Stage age: 25+ Voice: Baritone (Bb2 - F4)

Sergeant of Police
The leader of the police. He is Groucho Marx-esque and uncomfortably clumsy. Though their duty to protect is clear, the Sergeant and his police are more accustomed to fear and hiding. Comedy role.
Stage age: 35 to 45 Voice: Bass-baritone (G2 - E4)

Plus a chorus of pirates and policemen

FEMALE ROLES:
Mabel
Daughter of the Major-General. An astute young woman, she is sympathetic in nature. Utterly charming and innocent, with a sense of humour. She and Frederic fall in love.
Stage age: 18 to 21 Voice: Soprano (Bb3-Db6)

Edith
Daughter of the Major-General. Though a level-headed girl, she is quite mischievous. Very beautiful and the eldest of the daughters.
Stage age: 20 to 25 Voice: Soprano/mezzo (Ab3 - G5)

Kate
Daughter of the Major-General. Quick-witted and rather sassy. She, like her other sisters, is strikingly beautiful.
Stage age: 17 to 21 Voice: Soprano/mezzo (Ab3 - G5)

Ruth
Frederic's lifelong nanny. Attractive enough for her age but cares very little about such things. She wants nothing more in life than to see Frederic happy, healthy, and by her side. Needs a sense of comedy as well as genuine pathos.
Stage age: mid forties Vocal range top: Mezzo (G3 - Eb5)

And a chorus of other daughters

All cast will have some dancing; some cast will have lots of dancing

DUSTY - THE ORIGINAL POP DIVA
Northern Light Theatre Company

Written By: John-Michael Howson, David Mitchell & Melvyn Morrow
Directed By: Director - Gordon Combes
Choreographer - Sue Pole
Musical Director - Danielle Pedler

In the 1950’s, a star-struck, plain and dumpy London schoolgirl imagines she could become a glamorous movie idol. Her parents tell her that her fantasies will never come true and not to dream the impossible dream. But nothing deters her.
Blessed with an amazing voice and talent, she sets out to become a singer and a star. Soon, plain Mary O’Brien has transformed herself into the blonde pop icon, Dusty Springfield. But while Dusty, the gorgeous blonde star, is the image the world sees, it is an illusion behind which little Mary O’Brien still lives; the alter ego from which Dusty can never escape and who remains with her throughout her life.

In the 1960’s, Dusty Springfield takes the entertainment world by storm with a score of hits, a top TV show and a legion of fans. But the success she wanted is hollow and real happiness eludes her. Driven by her sense of perfection, Dusty takes on the world even as she discovers a desperate need to be loved in a way that could cause her career to crash. At the pinnacle of international success, with triumphs in Britain and America, Dusty finds the pressure unbearable. Unable to be what other people expect, and finding the spotlight’s heat can burn, she retreats from the world into a dark place.

Finding strength in adversity, Dusty returns to soar to the top. With the world applauding again, she has one more battle to fight.

Roles Available:
DUSTY - An emotional role. The character will develop as the story progresses. Strong acting ability will be required to carry her extremely complex personality. Requires an excellent pop voice that can handle the Dusty Springfield range and style. Very demanding vocally. Sings almost every song in the show. All the songs are in Dusty's original keys. Her range is very deceptive.
Range: G below Middle C to Strong Chest C above Middle C.
Age Range: 20-40 years. General movement.

RENO - Reno is the lead singer of a female trio "The Nevadas." The role is written for a black pop/soul singer, however is not paramount to casting the role. She has a closer relationship with Dusty. Strong contemporary soul voice.
Range: A below Middle C to C above Middle C.
Age Range: 20-40 years. Typical Motown style movement.

MARY O'BRIEN - Mary is the young, gawky, bespectacled Dusty and is portrayed in the show as a juvenile school girl who takes the journey through Dusty's formative experiences. This character takes on a narrative role and is continually on stage. Strong pop ballad voice.
Age Range: 18-25 years. Strong acting and vocal ability with good movement.

RODNEY - Hairdresser, who is one of Dusty's long time confidantes. Theatrically "camp" and extremely loyal to Dusty through her career. Good at harmonies.
Vocal Range: High Pop Baritone to D.
Age Range: 20-40 years. Good mover.

PEG - Theatrical dresser. Another of Dusty's closest friends. Good pop voice.
Range: A below Middle C to C above Middle C.
Age Range: 20 - 40 years. Good mover.

KAY O'BRIEN (MOTHER) & MR. O'BRIEN (FATHER) - Typical Irish working class parents. Both with a sense of humour. Actors with comedic style.
Vocal Range: Kay - Mature ballad voice. Solo song.
Vocal Range: Mr. O'Brien - Basically a non-singing role. Some harmony work. Baritone C to C.
Age Range: 30-50 years. Both these roles will double-up in other parts.

TOM - Mary/Dusty's Brother. He helps arrange early songs and performs as part of her original backing group. Strong vocals.
Vocal Range: Tenor up to G.
Age Range: 20 - 35 years. Good movement (Double Up).

BACKING VOCALISTS: NEVADAS, LANA SISTERS, SPRINGFIELDS, DRAG QUEENS - Typical 60's style backing vocalists. Good contemporary singers. Must be excellent at harmonies and blending.
Vocal Range: Nevadas - 2 girl singers. B below Middle C to C above Middle C.
Vocal Range: Lana Sisters - 2 girl singers. A below Middle C to D above Middle C.
Vocal Range: Springfields - 2 boy singers. Pop Baritone up to D.
Drag Queens - Strong Movement.

COMPANY/ENSEMBLE - School girls, Young Tom, Al Saxon, TV Announcer, Radio Announcer, Go-Go Dancers, Starlets, etc.
This is an exciting dance and ensemble singing show with lots of intricate choreography in the 60's style. Must be able to carry the vocal demands of the show. The ensemble will also play a variety of small speaking/vocal roles and take on some key backing vocal parts. Some boys will need to wear drag for the Drag Queen and company scene.

MISS SAIGON
The Metropolitan Musical Theatre Company of SA Inc (aka “The Met”)

Written By: Music by Claude-Michel Schönberg
Lyrics by Richard Maltby Jr. and Alain Boublil
Directed By: Ben Saunders
Musical Director – Jillian Gulliver
Choreographer – Selena Britz

Miss Saigon is an epic, stunning adaptation of Puccini’s opera, Madame Butterfly, by the writers behind Les Miserables. Reframing Puccini’s story by setting it during the Vietnam War, Miss Saigon is a powerful and poignant tale of love in a war-torn country.

In the dangerous days before Saigon’s fall in 1975, Chris (an American GI) and Kim (a destitute Vietnamese orphan working her first night as a prostitute) fall in love. When the city falls, the lovers are forced apart, and each must find their own way, alone.

When, years later, Chris is able to return to Vietnam, he brings with him an American wife. Kim, who has waited for Chris, has raised their son, Tam, who is “bui-doi”-- a term for a child conceived during the horrors of war. With so much devastation behind them, Kim and Chris must decide how to move forward.

Miss Saigon is a tragedy of massive proportions: passionate, profound, and heart-wrenchingly honest. With a sung-through score and tour-de-force roles for actors, Miss Saigon is a theatrical experience that will stay with you for years to come.

LOOK BACK IN ANGER
Adelaide Repertory Theatre

Written By: John Osborne
Directed By: Lesley Reed

It is mid 1950’s Britain. Post WWII, Labour has eventually defeated the Conservatives but this hasn’t produced the hoped-for welfare system that would improve social conditions. Working class people feel they fought a war for nothing, only to still endure a class-conscious society.
Jimmy Porter is working class, intelligent and educated, but under-employed; he manages a simple sweet stall. He is often very charming and amusing but has an incendiary temper and a biting tongue. He has personal issues, including marital and family problems. He resents the social system that he believes denies dignity and opportunity to the working class. He is consumed by frustration, a sense of powerlessness and despair for the future.
Jimmy and his upper-middle class wife Alison, with whom he has a stormy relationship, rent the rundown attic room of a Victorian-era boarding house in the English midlands. Jimmy’s working class Welsh friend and workmate Cliff Lewis has a room across from the Porters, but spends a lot of time with them as peacemaker. Unexpected events and the arrival of Alison’s friend, sophisticated actress Helena Charles, are the explosive catalysts for increasing conflict, impacting everyone’s lives.

The play is based on the playwright’s own life experiences but, while set in the 50s, is also a reflection of the timeless and diverse issues of all societies. This makes Look Back in Anger as relevant today as when first produced in 1956.
Look Back in Anger is also an essay on disenchantment in young adults. The term ‘the angry young man’ is said to have been coined in the 50s in response to this groundbreaking play.

Roles Available:
Skilled, experienced actors are required for this powerful social drama.

Jimmy Porter – Accent, English midlands
Stage age 25-mid 30s. Described in the script as ‘a disconcerting mixture of sincerity and cheerful malice, of tenderness and freebooting cruelty; restless, importunate, full of pride, a combination which alienates the sensitive and insensitive alike’.
Jimmy is the role of a lifetime.

Alison Porter – Accent, upper class English
Jimmy’s wife. Stage age mid 20s. Attractive and upper-middle class. Caught in a trap between her own background and Jimmy’s working class world. Her marriage is passionate but she is exhausted by Jimmy’s frequent rages and conflicted by her parents’ rejection of Jimmy. Does not have Jimmy’s quick way with words to counter his onslaughts, so tends to mostly suffer it, but this apparent passivity may be deceptive.

Cliff Lewis – Accent, Welsh
Jimmy’s friend and workmate. Stage age 25-30s. Slightly scruffy, good-hearted, working class Welshman. Recognises and is wary of Jimmy’s volatility. Peacemaker between Jimmy and Alison. Rather laidback, ‘almost to lethargy’ to begin with, but the arrival of Helena Charles creates new tensions in him, as it does for Jimmy.

Helena Charles – Accent, upper class English
Alison’s friend. Stage age 25-30. Upper-middle class. An actress, who, while working nearby, comes to stay with the Porters. Very sophisticated and emancipated for the times. Makes most men who meet her anxious to please her as she has an aura of ‘matriarchal authority’ while also being desirable. Not tolerant of Jimmy’s behavior, but attracted to him.

Colonel Redfern – Accent, upper class English
Alison’s father. Stage age mid 50s-60s. Former Colonel in British Army in India. Has been brought up not to show emotion- the ‘stiff upper lip’. Has an overbearing wife (Alison’s mother; not seen) who detests Jimmy and his class. The Colonel’s attitude is slightly softer than his wife’s- he is class conscious, but not blindly so. Small, crucial role.

ROUND AND ROUND THE GARDEN
Noarlunga Theatre Company

Written By: Alan Ayckbourn
Directed By: Bronwyn Calvett

Round and Round the Garden is set in the garden of the house belonging to Reg, Ruth and Annie’s mother, an unseen but tyrannical invalid woman whose unattached daughter, Annie, cares for her. On the Saturday evening when the play starts, Annie's brother Reg and his wife Sarah have just arrived to take over nursing duties so that Annie can go away for the weekend. Reg probably hasn't thought about it at all, but Sarah (his wife) assumes this has been arranged with Tom, the local vet, who has been hanging around Annie as fixedly as her old jumper but failing actually to court her. In fact, the weekend has been arranged with Norman, Ruth’s husband, an assistant librarian. Sarah soon talks Annie out of that but isn't persuasive enough to talk Tom into it. Norman, who has turned up expecting to take Annie away, is therefore at a loose end about the house and free to wreak havoc, which he does. Interestingly, though, his ‘crimes' are all things the others to some extent encourage or need. Reg enjoys Norman's jokes. Tom thinks he is wise in the ways of the world and gives good advice. Annie wants to be swept off her feet by someone, and Sarah is badly in need of attention and understanding of some kind. Finally Ruth, Norman's wife (and sister to Annie and Reg) joins the party unexpectedly. She is a high-powered but seriously short-sighted executive who duly catches him with two women apparently fighting over him. The final scene sees Norman alone in the garden, hurt and indignant that none of the women will take him up on his offer to make her happy. Each has recognised his opportunism for what it is.

Roles Available:
All ages relative. Somewhere between (stage age) 25-55.

ANNIE:

Reg & Ruth’s younger sister. Sister-in-law of Sarah and Norman.

Probably in love with Tom, but undecided. The “carer” of the family. Lonely.

TOM:

Local vet.

Slow-witted, clueless. Cannot see what’s in front of his nose. In love with Annie, but not sure what to do about it.

NORMAN:

Ruth’s husband. Brother-in-law to Reg and Annie.

Charming, rakish, an appallingly appealing serial seducer with teddy bear charm.

REG:

Older brother of Ruth and Annie. Married to Sarah. Brother-in-law to Norman.

One of a number of Ayckbourn men who can never quite remember the names of his own children. A dreamer who would love nothing more than to be left alone in his attic, so he can invent his games.

SARAH:

Married to Reg. Sister-in-law to Ruth and Annie

Bossy, impatient, interfering but ultimately very vulnerable. Badly in need of attention and understanding of some kind.

RUTH:

Sister of Reg and Annie. Norman’s wife. Sister-in-law to Sarah.

A high-powered but seriously short-sighted executive. A high-strung, workaholic

THE ADDAMS FAMILY: A NEW MUSICAL
South Coast Choral and Arts Society (SCCAS)

Book by Marshall Brickman
Book by Rick Elice
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams
Directed By: Jonathan Ogilvie

Based on the bizarre and beloved characters created by Charles Addams, this original story finds the famously creepy and kooky Addams Family put to the test when outsiders come to dinner. Wednesday Addams has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family, a family you would find right at home at PTA meetings and local sports clubs. When she tells her father, Gomez, about her love and impending nuptials, she asks him to keep it from her mother, Morticia. Secrets are disclosed and relationships are tested on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Roles Available:
* Note: The ages listed are just stage ages for the characters

MALE ROLES

Gomez Addams (45-59) - The clan patriach. A man of Spanish descent, who adores his wife, takes great pride in his children, and is immensely proud to be an Addams; caught between his daughter and his wife he feels completely trapped and unable to make either happy, which is his greatest joy; must have great comedic timing, move well, and strong tenor vocals.

Uncle Fester (40-59) - The narrator of the musical, has a hugely energetic, joyous childlike presence—totally incorrigible. A vaudevillian-style comedian with tenor vocals, spoken parts and a couple of high notes.

Puglsey Addams (12) - A charming, funny, husky boy who loves being tortured by his sister; he wants to ensure he won't lose his sister to her new boyfriend so he takes matters into his own hands; strong, high vocals. Voice not yet changed.

Lurch (25+) - The Addams's Frankensteinian butler. A man(?) of few words but many groans, Lurch may be their all-purpose servant, but he is treated as one of the family. Most of what he utters is in long, expressive groans, some tinged with irony or exasperation. His movement is always very slow. Character actor with bass vocals.

Lucas Beineke (19) - Attractive, all-American young man; fell in love with Wednesday Addams and plans to marry her. Experiences the pain and drama of young love and struggles with the differences between his family and the Addamses. Broadway show/pop tenor vocals.

Mal Beineke (45-55) - Stuffy father of Lucas and exasperated husband to his rhyming wife, Alice. Thinks the Addams' are beyond strange and does not want to spend time having dinner with them, much less be related. Midrange baritenor, minimal singing.

FEMALE ROLES

Morticia Addams (40-55) - Tall, elegant, leggy, the real head of the family and the critical and moving force behind it; often seems like the only emotionally mature member of the clan. Calls for a sexy, dry wit. Feels her husband is hiding something from her and will use any tactic to lure the secret out. A strong dancer with alto/mezzo soprano vocals.

Wednesday Addams (18) - Strikingly similar to Morticia but is experiencing a bit of a personality crisis. Witty with a terrifically dry sense of humor; just wants her family to be "normal" for one night to meet the parents of the boy she's fallen in love with; strong pop belt vocals.

Grandma (102) - Feisty, fun, quirky and adorably dangerous. Surprisingly resourceful and sprightly. Character vocals, mezzo.

Alice Beineke (40-50) - Mother to Lucas. Quirky, devoted to her family, often speaks in rhyme. At the Addams Family dinner party, drinks a potion that causes her to let her hair down and speak her mind.
comedic actress with soprano / belt vocals.

ENSEMBLE (ANCESTORS)

Male and female ensemble singer/dancers who are smart performers and have a fun, quirky sensibility. Should be able to hold tight harmonies. All ensemble members are expected to have good movement skills and be able to pick up simple dance moves. Contemporary dance training a plus.

ANYTHING GOES
Marie Clark Musical Theatre

Written By: Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Original Book by P.G. Wodehouse & Guy Bolton
and Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse
New Book by Timothy Crouse & John Weidman
Directed By: Michael Butler
Musically Directed By: Ben Stefanoff
Choreographed By: Rosanna Commisso

The S.S. American is sailing between New York and England with a comically colourful assemblage of passengers: Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist, her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker who has come aboard to try to win the favour of his beloved Hope Harcourt (who is engaged to another passenger, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh), and a second-rate conman named Moonface Martin, aka “Public Enemy #13.” Song, dance, and farcical antics ensue as Reno and Moonface try to help Billy win the love of his life.

Roles Available:
Each role will have assigned dialogue and music extract to learn. Please visit www.marieclark.asn.au after the information night to download further information, including the shows information pack.

RENO SWEENY
A sexy and charismatic nightclub singer and former evangelist. For some unknown reason Reno has forsaken what was once her calling of evangelism, and has become a very successful nightclub headliner. Reno is confident, clever, philosophical, funny, persuasive, and extremely comfortable with herself physically- and in every other way. She is practical and makes a good show of keeping it all together while romantic and tenderhearted underneath all her bravado. Reno is a consummate performer and a real showstopper. Must have comedic timing and be able to command the stage. In the beginning (and maybe forever – at least a little) she is in love with Billy.
 
Vocal Range: Mezzo/Solid Belt [G3 — Eb5]
Stage Age: 25 - 40
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability.
 
BILLY J. CROCKER
Elisha Whitney's kind but inefficient general manager who is in love with Hope. Must be charismatic and MUST have comedic timing: both verbal and physical plus considerable charm. Enough to win the heart of a steady girl engaged to a good man, and to have stolen the experienced heart and garnered the lavish attentions of Reno. Must be very confident physically, and willing to be put in silly situations. Must be able to move quickly. Idealistic.
 
Vocal Range: Tenor [B3 - G4]
Stage Age: 18 - 30
Choreography Note: Strong dancer/mover

HOPE HARCOURT
A wealthy and beautiful heiress. Hope is sailing to marry Lord Evelyn, who - although he is a very nice guy- is her heart’s second choice. It’s just after the crash, and her family has lost much of its fortune (while NOT losing it's standing)- maintaining the family status quo is very important to her and critical to the ones she loves. Sweet, but with a strong sense of morals and duty. Willing to marry to satisfy mother’s wishes, instead of love. Good sense of humour, can be mischievous. Sparkling, ladylike individualism is good starting point set of adjectives for Hope. 
 
Vocal Range: Soprano [A4 - Bb5]
Stage Age: 16 - 25
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability

SIR EVELYN OAKLIGH
Hope's aristocratic English fiancé. A steady, believable upper crust English accent a MUST. An earnest, energetic, good-natured, gullible and charming jewel of a nerd (called so affectionately). Loves the Americans. Born knowing who he is, therefore has the gift of being clueless to anybody’s opinion of him. Must be capable of - and comfortable with - comedic acting, and be very willing to take directions and do just about anything (within reason, naturally). 
 
Vocal Range: Tenor/Baritone [C3 - G4]
Stage Age: 30 - 45
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability

MOONFACE MARTIN
Public Enemy #13, traveling [disguised] as reverend); Wanted by the police. Uncomplicated and loveable gangster. Very interested in climbing up the most wanted ladder. Wily and quick-witted, yet somehow just this side of gullible, Moonface is loyal and willing to go the distance for a friend. He carries a machine gun in a violin case- ready for action- but it’s pretty obvious he’s untried in anything desperate. MAJOR comedic timing required; able to move nimbly/ quickly.
 
Vocal Range: Tenor [Bb3 - Gb4]
Stage Age: 30+
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability
 
ERMA
A traffic-stopping dame. Independent, modern, impulsive, courageous, boundless, immoderate, and driven by whatever gratifies her at the moment. She HAS to have the kind of physical presence that immediately causes every man within eyesight to zing! notice her. The actress playing this part must be extremely comfortable physically. She must be fresh and enjoyable in spite of her brazen ways, and be willing to play broad physical comedy. Lovably clueless, “joysey” accent. 
 
Vocal Range: Mezzo [A4 - C#5]
Stage Age: 20 - 35
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability
 
MRS. EVANGELINE HARCOURT
Hope's widowed mother who, at this point in time, is mainly concerned with social status and money (snob). Although born with a silver spoon in her mouth, and accustomed to the good life of the social elite, she has - because of the crash- learned to flow with the tide... yet has but one course in mind: She wants Hope to marry well- and by that she means rich! It’s the only way she can see that will save her home and her (and her daughter’s) place in society. Married well, but not to her one true love. Must be able to span the distance between refined lady and panic-stricken comedienne to breathless receiver of renewed hope.
 
Vocal Range: Can be either Soprano or Alto - no solo singing - will blend with ensemble
Stage Age: 40+
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability

ELISHA J. WHITNEY
A successful Ivy league Wall Street banker/business tycoon. Extremely near-sighted and a gloriously functional drunk. Huge personality. Used to snapping his fingers and having the world stop to listen. Thinks he’s right, but also capable of listening to reason and changing his mind. Down-to- earth in some ways and outlandish in others. Very loyal to his alma mater (Yale).
 
Vocal Range: Baritone [C3 - D4]
Stage Age: 40+
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability

LUKE
A presumably reformed gambler, and recent Christian convert. Traveling with Henry T. Dobson, and his cousin John.
 
Vocal Range: Can be either Tenor or Bass/Baritone - no solo singing - will blend with ensemble
Stage Age: 18+
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability

JOHN
Influenced by his cousin Luke, but loyal to his conversion and Dobson, John has a conscience, but an easily manipulated will; his vice had been demon rum.
 
Vocal Range: Can be either Tenor or Bass/Baritone - no solo singing - will blend with ensemble
Stage Age: 18+
Choreography Note: Strong dancer with tap ability

THE CAPTAIN
The man in charge of the S.S. American. Intelligent, strong, but a little too concerned with prestige. Good comedic timing. 
 
Vocal Range: Baritone

MOON OVER BUFFALO
Tea Tree Players

Written By: Ken Ludwig
Directed By: Jo Allenby

The hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.

CELEBRATION
The Stirling Players

Written By: Keith Waterhouse & Willis Hall
Directed By: Patsy Thomas

Celebration is a wonderful comedy from the ever witty pens of Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall. One family with two events and as the saying goes, “Weddings and funerals, nothing like them for bringing out the best and worst in people”. Set in the early 1960s this lovely play introduces us to a very Northern family. The first act sees the family making wedding preparations and the second act is set six months later with the family returning from the funeral of their Uncle Arthur whose much disparaged and ignored by the family, mistress turns up. A very entertaining observation of “the family”.

Roles Available:
Roles Available:
Stage ages given, good comic timing important.

Christine Lucas (The Bride) - 23 to 25 - ‘an ordinary pleasant girl’

Jack Lucas (Bride’s brother) – 25 to 30 – single, bombastic nature
Irene Howes (Bride’s cousin) –19 to 20 – a plain, slow girl with an obviously low I.Q.
Lilian Howes (Bride’s Aunt) – Irene’s mother – middle aged, a small, thin-lipped woman
Frank Broadbent (Bride’s Uncle) – In his mid-forties. The most prosperous member of the family and very conscious of this fact.
Arthur Broadbent (Bride’s Great-Uncle) – About sixty to seventy – he is more or less permanently, though not too obviously, drunk
Stan Dyson (Irene’s Fiancé) – Nineteen – an aggressive, wiry young man.
Bernard Fuller (The Groom) – 25 – an ordinary pleasant young man lacking in personality.
Edna Fuller (Groom’s Mother) – A wisp of a woman, perpetually concerned about her health who continually scratches the backs of her hands.
Alice Fuller (Groom’s Aunt) – Small “plumb” unfit middle-aged woman
Lionel Fuller (Groom’s cousin) – Mid-twenties, polite and in this company, almost unctuous. A high-pitched voice.
Margo Fuller (Groom’s cousin’s wife) – In her early twenties. A cheerful “tart” who shuffles about in old slippers.
May Beckett – in her fifties. A blowsy, badly made-up woman.
Sgt. Major Tommy Lodge – in his mid to late forties. A small and sprightly man who makes more use of the army than the army makes of him

VINTAGE HITCHCOCK - A LIVE RADIO PLAY
Tea Tree Players

Written By: Joe Landry
Directed By: Selena Carr

We’re on the air in five, four, three two…
‘Tonight, WBFR Playhouse of the Air and our sponsors present a trio of stories of suspense and mystery…’

Murder, mayhem and nostalgia collide in Vintage Hitchcock: A live radio play. A retelling of three of Alfred Hitchcock’s most famous stories — The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (1927), Sabotage (1936), and The 39 Steps (1935)— in the style of an old-time radio broadcast. Complete with sound effects and vintage commercials, all performed live onstage, it will take you back to the 1940’s, and, as it’s narrator announces eerily at the beginning, will ‘put murder back in the home- where it belongs’. So, relax, lean back and enjoy yourself – until the coroner comes...

The Lodger; a serial killer known as ‘The Avenger’ is stalking the streets of London in 1888. Have Mr and Mrs Bunting unwittingly taken as a lodger the very same man? And what will happen to their beautiful daughter Daisy, who is the very type of girl that the Avenger chooses to target…

Sabotage; Mr Anton Verloc owns a cinema in the heart of London with his American wife, Winnie and her teenage brother, but this is just a cover for his terrorist activities. Will the police discover his secret before his most daring plan is put into action?

The 39 steps; Richard Hannay becomes embroiled in an international spy ring known only as ‘The 39 Steps’. Murder soon follows, and after a case of mistaken identity he must elude the police. Together with his unwilling accomplice, Pamela, he must clear his name and stop British secrets being sent abroad.

Roles Available:
Casting/Casting Call

Vintage Hitchcock: A live radio play has over 60 speaking parts, with all actors required to voice multiple roles and perform sound effects live on stage. Have you ever wanted to play a dashing hero, the devious villain, the damsel in distress or the nosy neighbour? Well, this is your chance to do it all! The ability to speak dialects (particularly English variations) is a plus, but not a must. What you must be is energetic, vocally flexible and willing to work in a group. The ensemble cast will serve as voice actors and Foley artists performing multiple parts with scripts in hand, just as you would for a traditional radio broadcast. We need the classic BBC presenter voice, Cockney, American, English with a European accent and an epic scream! We even need jingle singers! Bring your best voices and your enthusiasm and show us what you can do.

Notes: Auditions will be a cold reading in groups. You will be required to read at least 2 roles (with different voices) and demonstrate the ability to insert a sound effect on cue as required in the script (necessary properties will be demonstrated and supplied). If you have any special talents (musical, sound effect, voices) please let us know as we would love to utilise existing talents.

Rehearsals:
7/7:30pm Mondays and Wednesdays. Some Sundays May be required. TBA.
