RITES
Barossa Players

Written By: Maureen Duffy
Directed By: Jo Hough

The play takes place in a woman’s public restroom and has an all female cast. The characters are representative working class women of London,including the restroom manager and attendant, three office workers, and two widows in their sixties. The action and dialogue of the play reveal the anger and resentment the women feel toward men in their romantic and sexual relationships, and at work.
Rites was written at a time when the women’s liberation movement of the 1960s and 1970s was gathering strength. Like the women’s movement, the play exposes the stifling effects on women of gender stereotypes at many levels of society.

THE GOAT OR WHO IS SYLVIA?
University of Adelaide Theatre Guild

Written By: Edward Albee
Directed By: Matt Houston

It’s Martin’s 50th birthday. He is a world-renowned Architect, and has been commissioned to design a multi-billion dollar city. He has a loving wife, Stevie, and son, Billy. His best friend, Ross, is a TV journalist, and arrives to conduct an interview about Martin’s exciting professional prospects. But then Martin lets slip a dark secret; one that is revealed to his family, and subsequently tears them apart. The Goat is a darkly funny, polarising play that challenges how we view love, taboo and prejudice

Roles Available:
Martin: Male, 50 years old.
A world-renown architect, husband to Stevie and father to Billy. Loving to his wife, but distant to his son. Forgetful, distracted, ill at ease and nervous. A large tragicomic role for an experienced actor.

Ross: Male, 50 years old.
Martin’s best friend and arguably the play’s antagonist. A journalist, so has the charm and wit of a TV personality. An excellent comedic role.

Billy: Male, 17 years old.
Martin and Stevie’s son. Billy is gay; he is clever, sarcastic and emotional. Requires the ability to play for comedy and drama interchangeably and swiftly. An enviable, challenging role for a young male.

Please note that the role of Stevie has been pre-cast.
All ages given are stage ages.
The play is set in upstate New York so please prepare a suitable American accent.

Rehearsals:
Tuesday & Wednesday evenings, 7pm-10pm & Sunday afternoons, 12 noon to 5pm from Sunday 27 May.

OUR MAN IN HAVANA
The Stirling Players

Written By: Adapted by Clive Francis
Directed By: Dave Simms

Jim Wormold, a hapless vacuum cleaner salesman, is struggling to pay for his teenage daughter's extravagant lifestyle in 1950s Cuba. So when the British Secret Service asks him to become their “man in Havana” he can't afford to say no. There's just one problem: he doesn't know anything! His answer? Make it up. The more he invents the deeper he gets sucked into the dirty world of espionage and double agents.

This adaptation of Graham Greene’s classic spy satire is a murderously funny, fast-moving romp told by seven

Roles Available:
Cast required: In the style of The 39 Steps, our hero is surrounded by narrators, characters, scenery and props created by seven other actors.

1M 30s/40s: There's a terrific lead part for Mr Wormold. He is the centre of the action. Lots of lines and business.

4M/2F: The narrators and every other character. You must be able to play any age, any accent, any gender and have excellent comic timing. Everything from a Cuban servant to the head of MI6, from The Queen to a stripper (played by the guys)!

MIDWAY TO NOWHERE
Melpomene Theatre Group

Written & Directed By: George Djukic

Set after World War 2 in a migrant camp in Australia, "Bitter Springs Creek" examines the collision of the Old World cultures of European refugees and that of a post-war Australia still in the grip of the White Australia Policy, and ambivalent both about its British heritage and its new links to America.

A group of southern European migrants, some political refugees, others economic, wait on tenterhooks in a migrant camp, as they wait to be placed in employment during the winter of 1952. It is set against the background of a riot by the Italian migrants in which they burnt buildings down, triggering the army to send in tanks with machineguns. This is based on an actual episode in Australia's postwar migration history.

Disempowered and trapped in a no-man's-land, the migrants wage a struggle on many fronts: against the past; the authorities; the new country; each other; and themselves, a struggle in turns sad, funny, painful and angry. By the end of the play, each character has a clearer idea of the road ahead. For some, it will be a dark journey. For example:

Sava is an ex-forced labourer who was transported from Yugoslavia to Germany. He chooses not to return after the war, as the communists have taken over. In Australia he befriends young Bosko, 20 years old, who idolises him. Their friendship is strained however when Bosko falls for a woman who prefers Sava. Sava decides not to marry his fiancée when he gets assigned work in tbe canefields, and Bosko is left behind, at the mercy of the ruthless and self-seeking Punisa, who finds him work with an exploitative Australian farmer. Bosko escapes only to be shot in an accident, becoming an invalid.

Gennaro is a young Italian farmer who comes with his family on a work contract but is suddenly trapped in the camp in the middle of the bush because of a sudden recession. His daughter becomes ill and dies and he seeks revenge on the incompetent doctor.

Rade is tormented by his experiences in concentration camps; paranoidally jealous of his young German wife, he kills her in a fit of anger and is sentenced to prison; his case is based on an actual event

"Bitter Springs Creek" captures an important historical time and place, and affords insights into the experience of being an immigrant and an outsider in Australia from the perspective of a son of New Australians, now no more. It is thus a tribute to their memory and a testimony to their suffering. More generally, in highlighting the need for compassion for and understanding of refugees, present and past, and in offering a perspective corrective of the myths and fears encouraged by mainstream media and politicians, it assumes special relevance to contemporary Australian society.

Dimitri: (51 cues) Greek political refugee, mid-twenties to mid-thirties, formerly a Communist guerrilla; escaped after the communists for whom he fought lost against the nationalist forces in the Greek civil war. He is socially conscious, idealistic, a womaniser.

PATIENCE
SA Light Opera Society (SALOS)

Written By: Gilbert and Sullivan
Directed By: Director – Alex Bond
Musical Director – Danielle Ruggiero-Prior
Enquiries and bookings – Company Director Pam Tucker

PATIENCE satirizes the "aesthetic craze" of the 1870's and '80s.
All the well-born young ladies in the village, rapturously caught up in aestheticism, are in love with two contrasting aesthetic poets — a "fleshy" poet and an "idyllic" poet. But the poets are both in love with Patience, the simple village milkmaid, who cares nothing for poetry. Patience learns that true love must be completely unselfish--it must wither and sting and burn! The girls' military suitors don't see the point to aesthetics, but they decide to give it a try to win the women's hearts. It is touch and go for a while, but everyone ends up with a “suitable partner”, even if it is only a tulip or lily.
All the musical fun and silliness you know and love from Gilbert and Sullivan.

Roles Available:
Patience (a Dairy Maid)
Reginald Bunthorne (a Fleshly Poet)
Mr. Bunthorne's Solicitor

IF/THEN
Segue Productions

Written By: Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
Music by Tom Kitt
Directed By: Vanessa Redmond, Musically Directed by Ben Stefanoff, Choreographed by Rebekah Stonelaitken

With unforgettable songs and a deeply moving story by the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning creators of Next to Normal, IF/THEN is a fascinating, ambitious and original new musical. IF/THEN simultaneously follows one woman's two possible life paths, painting a deeply moving portrait of the lives that we lead, as well as the lives that we might have led.

Elizabeth, a city planner, moves back to New York to restart her life in the city of infinite possibilities. When her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate, Elizabeth's life splits into two parallel paths. IF/THEN follows both stories simultaneously, as this modern woman faces the intersection of choice and chance.

IF/THEN is a contemporary Broadway musical about living in New York today and all of the possibilities of tomorrow. With a powerhouse role for a leading lady and rich and complex supporting roles, this show celebrates dynamite talent and the power of great storytelling.

Roles Available:
ELIZABETH:
Newly single and newly returned to New York City, where she was a grad student years ago. She is eager to start her life over and determined to get it right this time. She is currently in recovery from a long, bad marriage, and she’s capable but not always confident, ambitious but often anxious; smart, straightforward, deliberate, hungry for joy but afraid it may never come.

Vocal Quality and Range: low G-flat with a belt to a high E-flat; along with big belt, must have ability to float and mix higher notes.
Age: 35 - 39
Choreography note: Strong dancer/mover

KATE:
A native New Yorker, incurable romantic, and tough-as-sparkly-nails kindergarten teacher, she manages to be a fancy lady, a fierce friend, an unapologetic feminist, and a pal to all. Kate tends to see the best in everyone and to strike up conversations with strangers. *Must be comfortable with same-sex kissing for this role.*

Vocal Quality and Range: big belt to an E with a nice mix.
Age: 30 - 49
Choreography note: Strong dancer/mover

ANNE:
Kate’s girlfriend, and then wife, and in many ways her perfect counterpart; logical, frank, calm, unflappable, with a more grounded energy, and a more practical nature, but a heart just as big as her lover’s. Anne is quite at home in her body and in touch with her sexuality.
*Must be comfortable with same-sex kissing for this role.*

Vocal Quality and Range: belt to a D with a nice mix.
Age: 30 - 49
Choreography note: Strong dancer/mover

ELENA:
Ambitious, enthusiastic, fresh-faced but familiar with the ups and downs of life. Elena is fresh from receiving her MA in urban studies, and becomes Elizabeth’s protégé.

Vocal Quality and Range: big belt to an E with a nice mix.
Age: 25 – 29
Choreography note: Strong dancer/mover

JOSH:
Raised in the midwest, trained in medicine, tempered by two tours as an Army doctor. Josh is confident in his work, but less so in his love life; he feels a little out of step in New York City. Steady, pragmatic, plainspoken, but with a calm, gentle humour.

Vocal Quality and Range: tenor; belt to an A/B-flat
Age 35 - 44
Choreography note: Strong dancer/mover

LUCAS:
An activist, blogger, urban farmer, homesteader, barista, and citizen of the world. Lucas is intelligent and ideological, well-read and well-spoken, dedicated to fighting injustice and dismissive of normative values, be they political or personal, and sexually flexible.
*Must be comfortable with same-sex kissing for this role.*

Vocal Quality and Range: baritone; belt to an A-flat.
Age: 35 - 39
Choreography note: Strong dancer/mover

STEPHEN:
A charismatic, confident mover and shaker in city government. Stephen is passionate about the issues but wise to political reality. He’s smart and somewhat glib, idealistic but also slick; an operator, attractive, and he knows how to use it.

Vocal Quality and Range: high baritone/low tenor; belt to A-flat or A.
Age: 35 - 44
Choreography note: Strong dancer/mover

DAVID:
Lucas’ boyfriend; charming but not glib, handsome but not unattainable, smart but without the need to show it. David is a successful surgeon who’s ready to meet the right man, settle down, and start a family. He has fairly traditional values — but doesn’t require them in a mate.
*Must be comfortable with same-sex kissing for this role.*

Vocal Quality and Range: belt to A-flat/A.
Age: 30 - 39
Choreography note: Strong dancer/mover

ENSEMBLE:

CONTINENTAL QUILT
Tea Tree Players

Written By: Joan Greening
Directed By: Lachlan Blackwell and Mike Phillips

Farce aims to entertain through situations that are highly unlikely and extravagant and thus improbable, and this play has all those ingredients and more. Mike’s pleasant evening with his girlfriend is shattered by the arrival of his brother, whose wife has thrown him out. To make matters worse the unexpected arrival of another girlfriend, followed closely by his own mother, and then the antics of the next door neighbour completely undermines what he had planned for the evening, and in a situation of mistaken identities and double takes, everyone involved tries to remove themselves from the firing line, with very little success.

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST
Barossa Players

Written By: Dale Wassermann
Directed By: Paul Paulenas

When Randle Patrick McMurphy gets transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a mental institution, he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment. But the authoritarian Nurse Ratched runs the psychiatric ward with an iron fist, keeping her patients cowed through abuse, medication and sessions of electroconvulsive therapy. The battle of wills between the rebellious McMurphy and the inflexible Ratched soon affects all the ward's patients.
The movie won a fistful of Oscars in 1976, including Best Film, Best Director (Miloš Forman), Best Actor (Jack Nicholson), Best Actress (Louise Fletcher)

Roles Available:
All roles are open for all-comers, including the 'to die for' parts of McMurphy and Big Nurse. Requirements of a minimum of 13 males and four females, with a splendid mix of core and supporting players.

The major characters are:

Randle P. McMurphy
Alpha male – larrikin – a life force - fighter, drinker, gambler, insubordinate – sexual; “like to fight and fuck”

Big Nurse Ratched
Is the control mechanism on the ward – outwardly pleasant – passive aggressive
For patients, she is a cross between a school ma’am and a disappointed mother
To the staff, she is more of a dragon – more abrupt and business-like

Dale Harding
A goody two-shoes who has a need to stick rigidly by the rules – seeks approval from the mother figure - correct process and order are vitally important to him – has a young wife – feels intimidated by her – not comfortable about her "womanly" behaviour – his effeminate use of hands gives him away as being uncomfortable with his masculinity

Billy Bibbitt
Stuttering, anxious - terrified of his mother and her opinion of him – a man-child, made worse by fact that his mother and Big Nurse are personal friends

Chief Bromden
Is locked away in his own head – doesn’t want to know a lot of what is going on around him - an elective mute - represents the indigenous man battered by intolerance of white society - has had electro-shock therapy - for much of the play we share his thoughts through voice-overs, however he is involved in more spoken action than in the movie

Cheswick
Short, stout, truculent, argumentative - childish - however, easily diffused

Scanlon
An anarchist – plotter – indignant, teaser, walks with a stalk - cannot fit in because behaviour knows no rules, regulations, boundaries

Martini
Italian – eager and enthusiastic – bright-eyed - but sees what’s not there and often does not see what is there

Dr Spivey
Psychiatrist – nice enough guy, but accommodating - harassed, fumbling - ulcer – doesn’t want to make waves

Nurse Flinn
Insipid, colourless, apprehensive, apologetic, scurries around – a mouse?

Candy Starr & Sandra
A couple of ‘good-time girls’ – well-adjusted, caring, sexy - stand as a marked contrast to Big Nurse – represent everything she is not (i.e. woman as whore cf woman as mother)

Aide Warren
Physically small – hence, small man syndrome – disrespectful bully with respect to Chief and other patients - embraces any opportunity to control, however, is easily controlled by Big Nurse

Aide Williams
A follower and echo of Warren – not nearly as nasty, but feels that he has to go along with Warren in order to prevent backlash

Aide Turkel
Night porter – drinker - doesn’t want hassles, so not stringent on the rules

Added to this is an assortment of patients with minimal or no lines

OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MURDER
Tea Tree Players

Written By: Fred Carmichael
Directed By: Lilly Dolman

Peter has come to a lovely old house to finish a play, a murder story in a place where another author had been murdered years before.

Peter loses control of his characters and after an attempted murder with him as the intended victim, other murders occur and events follow a typical thriller to a hair raising climax, until all is solved ingeniously with romance, suspense and cosmic wit.
