LES MISéRABLES
Gilbert & Sullivan Society of SA

Written By: Music by CLAUDE-MICHEL SCHÖNBERG
Lyrics by HERBERT KRETZMER
Directed By: David Sinclair and Linda Williams; Musical Direction: Peter Johns

The musical phenomenon that is the multi-award winning Les Misérables returns to Adelaide in an all new production in September this year.

Seen by more than 70 million people in 44 countries and in 22 languages around the globe, Les Mis is the longest running musical currently onstage, with the original London production celebrating its 32nd anniversary in October 2017.

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the power of the human spirit to survive against adversity. It tells an enthralling story of broken dreams, hope, faith, courage, love, sacrifice and redemption.

Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for the dying Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, all of their lives change forever.

Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables packs an emotional wallop. Featuring the songs “I Dreamed A Dream”, “Bring Him Home”, “One Day More” and “On My Own” Les Misérables is a masterpiece of theatre not to be missed.

IN-LAWS, OUTLAWS, AND OTHER PEOPLE (THAT SHOULD BE SHOT)
Blackwood Players Inc

Written By: Steve Franco
Directed By: Erik Strauts

It is 6 pm and the Douglas family is busy preparing to be invaded by their quirky relatives for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighbourhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony and his dim-witted sidekick Vinny find themselves in need of a place to briefly hide out. Using a ruse to gain entrance into the Douglas home, they suddenly find themselves in charge of an ever-growing list of family members that they are forced to hold hostage. From smart-aleck teenagers to nosy neighbours, and bickering adults – the laughs (like the flow of people) are non-stop. We soon wonder who is holding who hostage?

Simply a fun play with outrageous characters, laugh-a-minute dialogue and a surprise heart-felt ending. However, we might all be able to recognise one or more of our relatives in these characters.

BYE BYE BIRDIE
The Metropolitan Musical Theatre Company of SA Inc (aka “The Met”)

Written By: A MUSICAL COMEDY
Book by MICHAEL STEWART Music by CHARLES STROUSE Lyrics by LEE ADAMS
Originally produced by EDWARD PADULA by arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd
Directed By: Gordon Combes
Musical Director: Paul Sinkinson
Choreographer: Carmel Vistoli

Before Link Larkin...Before Danny Zuko...There was Conrad Birdie!

This is a bright and fast paced musical that will leave the audience with a smile on their face and humming the well-known tunes. Bye Bye Birdie is a celebration of song and dance, paying homage to 1950’s American pop culture.

When superstar Conrad Birdie is drafted into the armed forces, his tense songwriter/ manager Albert is set for bankruptcy. That is, until his faithful secretary (and long-term girlfriend) Rose devises a most brilliant publicity campaign to cash-in on Conrad’s departure from entertainment. Conrad will bestow ‘One Last Kiss’ on a teenage fan before national television audience, live from Sweet Apple, Ohio. But not all goes to plan when jealous boyfriends, meddling mothers and teenage hormones are thrown into the mix. The result is chaos!

Featuring classic Broadway songs including Put on a Happy Face, One Last Kiss, Honestly Sincere and A Lot of Livin’ to Do, this is entertainment in its most feel-good form.
We are seeking a high-energy cast of all ages to bring this flashy and colourful production to life in October at the Arts Theatre!

If you loved Hairspray, you won’t want to miss Bye Bye Birdie. It’s fun loving, hilarious and wildly entertaining.

ADULT ROLE AUDITIONEES – 18 YEARS AND OVER
RANDOLPH MACAFEE – 9 YRS & OVER TO LOOK STAGE AGE 9 – 12 YEARS

Stage Age: 30-40
Vocal Range: F2 – Gb4 Baritone/Tenor
Dance Requirements: Albert must be able to move well, soft shoe would be an advantage
Audition Song: Put On A Happy Face (Bar 7 – 37) AND a 1950/60s musical theatre song of your choosing

Rosie Deleon - Rose is Al’s secretary but dreams of the day when she can adjust his title from “employer” to “hubby.” The role of Rose requires someone who can display a truly strong spirit and a spicy inner core. The role of Rose will be secured by the one who can sell the character’s spirit, both in scenes AND songs.

Stage Age: late 20s-40
Vocal Range: F3 – C5 Alto Belt
Dance Requirements: Rosie has a huge dance sequence “The Shriner’s Ballet” which requires a trained dancer or an extremely talented mover - she has to be energetic, agile and be able to be lifted

Mama Mae Peterson – Albert’s interfering mother who will do anything to ensure he does not marry Rose. She has a powerful presence with great comic timing. Every scene in which she appears presents Mae unabashedly working to guilt trip her poor son.

Stage Age: 50+
Vocal Range: Alto
Dance Requirements: Must move well
Audition Song: A Mother Doesn’t Matter Anymore (Bar 15 – 52) AND a 1950/60s musical theatre song of your choosing

Conrad Birdie – A tall handsome and confident rock-star. He’s rude. He’s arrogant. He doesn’t show much regard for others. We also need to see, very clearly, the physicality of Birdie.

Stage Age: 25-30
Vocal Range: Ab2 – Gb4 Light Baritone
Dance Requirements: Birdie has to emulate the Elvis hip swinging, pelvic thrusts - needs to move with agility

Stage Age: 40+
Vocal Range: C3 – E4 Comfortable Baritone
Dance Requirements: A good mover
Audition Song: Kids (Bar 1 – 62) AND a 1950/60s musical theatre song of your choosing

She has a wonderful scene early on in the show in which she is mortified with her daughter’s abrupt assertion of adult status. She is the peacekeeper between her moody teenage daughter, abrasive husband and curious little boy. Doris should underplay her role in the family, even though it is clear she is in control.

Stage Age: 40+
Vocal Range: Bb3 – F5 Comfortable Mezzo
Dance Requirements: A good mover Audition Song: Kids (Bar 1 – 62) AND a 1950/60s musical theatre song of your choosing

Randolph MacAfee - Kim’s younger brother. He’s overlooked a bit and wants attention from his father. When he is acknowledged, he really isn’t given much respect at all.

TIMON OF ATHENS
Symposium Productions

Written By: William Shakespeare
Directed By: Mary Angley

OPEN CASTING CALL FOR PROFIT SHARE SHOW

With the support of the Adelaide City Council’s “Splash Adelaide” program, Symposium Productions will be creating a site-specific production of Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens.

The production will take place in the grand-stand and surrounding area of Victoria Park in late September of this year.

As a work of site-specific theatre, the production will use minimal set; instead, relying on the architecture, history, function and atmosphere of the existing site. Drawing on the grand-stand’s historical association with horse racing, this production will envisage “Athens” as an exclusive, decadent, race-day party. Through this, the production will explore contemporary issues of economic inequality and materialism.

The production will be run on a profit-share model, with any profits from ticket sales being shared between actors.

Roles Available:
Roles Available:
(the ages and genders of characters have been kept flexible. If you wish to audition for multiple characters, or are unsure which character to audition for, please specify this in your application email.)

Timon: Male, 25+
The tragic hero of the play: a wealthy, somewhat naive, man who showers his friends with extravagant parties and lavish gifts. Timon is not greedy or materialistic: he believes that true happiness is found in being generous to one’s friends. However, ultimately, his desire “buy friendship” is his downfall. When he finds himself bankrupt and his friends fail to come to his aid, he becomes cynical and leaves Athens to live a life of isolation in the forest.

Apemantus: Any Gender 18-35
A sarcastic, philosophical, witty Athenian who attends Timon’s parties for the sole purpose of insulting Timon and his guests. Apemantus is extremely critical of the way in which Timon’s friends flatter him and is the only character who refuses to show respect to Timon. While Apemantus and Timon constantly insult each other, they develop an interesting bond over the course of the play.

Alcibiades: Male: 20-40
A soldier who attends Timon’s parties. Alcibiades is concerned with justice; when one of Alcibiades fellow soldiers is unfairly sentenced to death, he pleads with the Athenian senators to be merciful. When the senators refuse and Alcibiades is exiled from Athens, he gathers an army to attack the city. In this production this “attack” will take the form of a protest march against economic inequality.

Flavius: Female, 18+
Timon’s loyal servant. She is both rational and kind. Of all the servants, Flavius is the closest to Timon and the most senior. She manages Timon’s finances and implores him to put an end to his extravagant parties. When Timon flees to the forest, she follows him and offers to continue to serve him.

Ventidius: Any Gender, 20+
An Athenian who attends Timon’s parties. In the first scene of the play, Timon sends him money to secure his release from prison. Despite Timon’s generosity, when Timon is in debt, Ventidius refuses his requests for help. Please note, this character has been combined with the character “Lucullus”

Lucilius: Male, 18+
A young man, formerly Timon’s servant. In the first scene of the play, Timon grants Lucilius a considerable sum of money so that he may marry the daughter of the “Old Athenian”. Despite this when Timon is in debt, Lucilius refuses his request for help.

Sempronius: Any Gender, 40+
A wealthy Athenian who attends Timon’s parties. Despite Timon’s generosity, when Timon is in need of money, Sempronius does not come to his aid. Please note, the actor chosen to play this role will also take on the role of the “Old Athenian”.

Poet: Any Gender, 18-35

A poet who follows the wealthy Athenians around, writing verses about them and speaking in over-the-top language. While the poet takes great pride in her work, she is willing to write flattering poetry about any subject who is likely to pay her.

Painter: Any Gender, 18-35

In this production, the painter is an event photographer, who creates “portraits” of guests attending Timon’s parties. The poet comes from a less wealthy background, but is eager to use her talents in order to climb the economic ladder. While she takes great pride in her work, her primary goal is to take flattering photos of the wealthy in order to make money.


Jeweller/Flaminius/Senator: Any Gender, 18-35

The jeweller creates accessories to sell to Timon at inflated prices. The jeweller is skilled at praising both his creations and those that wear them.
Please note, the actor chosen to play this part will also play the role of Flaminius.
Flaminius is a servant who works at Timon’s parties. In this production, servants operate as waiters and bar staff attending on the wealthy Athenians. When Timon falls into debt, Flaminius goes to Ventidius and tries to convince him to help Timon to no avail.
In addition, the actor chosen to play this role will also play one of the Athenian Senators.


First Servant/Timandra/Bandit: Female, 18-30

The First Servant serves Timon and those present at his parties. When Timon falls into debt, the First Servant goes to Sempronius and tries to convince him to help Timon. She is aggressive and insistent, but, ultimately, unsuccessful.
In addition, the actor chosen to play this role will also play the role of Timandra, a protester in Alcibiades’ “army”, and the role of a bandit who encounters Timon in the woods.


Servilius/Phrynia/Bandit/Senator: Female, 18-30

An excellent role for an actress who is able to portray multiple, distinct characters. Servilius is a servant who works at Timon’s parties as a waitress. When Timon declares bankruptcy, Servilius goes to Lucilius to ask for a loan on Timon’s behalf. Servilius is appalled to find that Lucilius will not return Timon’s generosity.
In addition, the actor chosen to play this role will also play the role of Phrynia, a protestor in Alcibiades’ “army”, the role of a bandit who encounters Timon in the woods, and the role of one of the senators.

Rehearsals:
Rehearsals will begin immediately after casting and will take place in Glen Omsond. Actors will be required for an average of two rehearsal per week, dependent on their role. The times and dates of these rehearsals will be arranged with cast members.

Performances:
28/9/17- 1/10/17

From the director of SCCAS's Jack and the Beanstalk comes a brand-new pantomime: Cinderella and the Pirates. With more songs, more laughs and more cream pies, this comedy mashup of Cinderella and The Pirates of Penance will delight audiences of all ages.

Cinderella lives with her loving father, a retired Major-General. But her two older sisters treat her like a slave. Frederic is an apprentice upon a pirate ship, captained by the evil Pirate King. But when these two meet, they are swept up in a tale of adventure, sword-fighting and love.

Filled with popular songs by Meghan Trainor, Whitney Houston and Queen, Cinderella and the Pirates will have you booing and cheering throughout the show, as you laugh along to the characters’ antics.

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT
Now Productions

Written By: Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed By: Joe Russell & Bianca Woods

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable.

Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel.

Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
