SUESSICAL THE MUSICAL
The Parks Theatre

Written By: Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens
Directed By: Hayley Horton

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Seussical is fun for the whole family! Performers of all ages will be excited to portray the characters from the familiar Dr. Seuss fables. This musical provides wonderful creative opportunities for set, lighting and costume design. An alternate orchestration is available in keys more appropriate for a female Cat in the Hat.

THE VICAR OF DIBLEY - ADELAIDE PREMIERE
Noarlunga Theatre Company

Written By: Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter. Adapted from the original TV series by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer. With kind permission of Tiger Aspect Productions
Directed By: Myles Leon

This stage version of The Vicar of Dibley takes its source primarily from the first two series of the show aired between 1994 - 1998. In this script adaption created by Ian Gower, is primarily the reception of a female vicar that receives upon being assigned to a small farming village called Dibley.

At first the village community are horrified at having received a female Vicar from the head church. however eventually they learn to accept her as she learns (and challenges) the steadfast ways of the village. She manoeuvres her way into the hearts of the parishioners and the community in which she lives in.

Roles Available:
David Horton
David enjoys being in charge. He's a Cambridge educated, upper-class and although divorced, an upholder of stern traditional family values - very upper lip English. He longs for tradition, law and order the status quo. David certainly isn't the most tolerant person, and doesn't suffer fools gladly. He enjoys doing good deeds, but only when it will benefit him. He finds Geraldine difficult to get on with, because of her gender.
Aged mid 40's - mid 50's.

Hugo Horton
Hugo is the veritable puppet by his controlling father. He has been brought up only by David, most of his childhood.
He aims to avoid conflict, and always aims to please most people. His is in love with Alice Tinker.
Slightly tall and able to optimise the dub look. Aged 30 - 40 years.

Frank Pickle
Frank is very "English" and very "public school" in appearance. He is highly eccentric in both manner and dress, and outstandingly well spoken. However, whilst he speaks well, most of the Dibley wish he would speak a little less, he has been known to bore people to sleep when he speaks. As Clerk of the Parish Council, he's keen to take the minutes, which can be hours, accurately as possible, but has a habit of dithering and annoying everyone. Late 40's +

Jim Trott
Jim has a very unfortunate stutter, insofar as he precedes almost every statement is "No, no, no, no.......yes". Residents find this annoying, time consuming and confusing when trying to gain a straight answer. This aside, Jim spends a lot of time generally dithering anyway and so rarely manages to achieve much. He often speaks of his sexual desire for all breathing females. Aged 50+

Owen Newitt
Owen is a local farmer and a parish council member with a very earthy manner. He lives alone at the farm with his animals and is famous for displaying extremely personal hygiene, compounded with chronic problems with his stomach and bowels. He has a thing for the Reverend Gerry. He often uses the word 'bloody', describing the word as 'a useful adjective'. Tall looking. Aged 45+

Lelitia Cropley
Lelitia is a very caring lady who longs to provide nourishing refreshment and sustenance to her close friends and neighbours, and ensures the church is full of attractive flower arrangements. This problem is her creativity ways, and could be described as rather eccentric. She was veey naughty as a young girl and wishes she could start again. Loves to knit. Aged mid 50+

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)!

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.

OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MURDER
Tea Tree Players

Written By: Fred Carmichael

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. A weird electrical storm causes a confused and chaotic state and his characters come to life.
