SLEEPING BEAUTY PANTOMIME
Tea Tree Players

Written By: Ben Crocker
Directed By: Tina Hall

For more than forty years a end of year Pantomime has always been the final presentation of Tea Tree Players annual season, and while so many things have changedover the years this form of end of year entertainment remains more or less untouched by modern trends and as popular today as at any time previously.
The best known pantomimes are based mainly on fairy stories and fables, and this year we will presnt one of the best known the classic story of the "Sleeping Beauty", in a script by Ben Crocker who brings over twentyfive years of his own experience as actor, director and susequently author. The result of this combination of skills is the creation of a new level of pantomime entertainment, that is funny, fast moving, true to the original story and quite possibly one of the best pantomimme scripts available, where in the two hours presentation the audience will have to work almost as hard as the performers.

There is the suspense and the drama, the unlikely situations, the laughs and a bit of slapstick, and of course the happy ending that makes these few hours a special experience. With a good sprinkling of songs and the involvement of the audience from the beginning, a good time for all is just about guaranteed, and just to prove that everyone will leave the theatre smiling.

THE TRUTH
Unseen Theatre Company

Written By: Original novel by Sir Terry Pratchett
Adapted by Stephen Briggs
Directed By: Pamela Munt

"The truth shall make ye free fret"

Particularly if your deadline is urgent because, as everyone knows,

“A lie can run around the world before the truth has got it’s boots on”

Unseen Theatre Company presents a fresh take on:-

Sir Terry Pratchett’s
“The Truth”
Adapted by Stephen Briggs.

Mucked about with, for Unseen Theatre Company, by Pamela Munt

There’s been a murder. Allegedly. But William de Worde, accidental editor of the Discworld's first newspaper, has got an inside line on the hot story. The facts say that Ankh-Morpork’s ruler, Lord Vetinari is guilty. But as Willam soon learns, facts don’t always tell the whole story. There’s that pesky little thing called The Truth, that just keeps trying to get out. Luckily William has an informant. He can’t be a talking dog because dogs can’t talk. He’s known only as...Deep Bone.

Through all of his investigations, William must cope with the daily perils of a journalist's life -- people who want him dead, a recovering vampire with a suicidal fascination for flash photography, some more people who want him dead in a different way and, worst of all, the man who keeps begging him to publish pictures of his humorously shaped vegetables.

Then there are the dark forces high up in Ankh-Morpork’s society who are plotting to overthrow Lord Vetinari and who have employed two Tarantino-esque thugs, Mr. Tulip and Mr. Pin for the purpose. They mean business.

William just wants to get at THE TRUTH. Unfortunately, everyone else wants to get at William. And it's only the third edition...BUT.....

“If it’s published, it’s ink-validated” - “This is a terrifically funny outing” – Goodreads

SHREK - THE MUSICAL
Adelaide Youth Theatre

Written By: David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori
Directed By: Thomas Phillips

SHREK THE MUSICAL, based on the Oscar® winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone's favourite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage.

In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won't shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.

Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, SHREK THE MUSICAL is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!

Roles Available:
FIONA: Princess Fiona is the princess of Far Far Away,
daughter of King Harold and Queen Lillian. Fiona has a transforming spell over
her that turns her into an ogre every night when the sun sets. This spell can
only be broken with a true loves’ kiss. Upon meeting Shrek she finds that she
has fallen in love with him.
ADULT ONLY ROLE

LORD FARQUAAD: A comically short, ruthless ruler of the
huge castle of Duloc. In his pursuit of perfection he attempts to rid the city
of fairytale creatures. Farquaad wants to become a king but because he is not
of royal stock, he cannot until he marries a princess.
ADULT ONLY ROLE

SHREK: Prides himself on being a big, green, terrifying
ogre. Shrek was kicked out at a young age to live alone until the fairytale
creatures disturb him in his swamp. In an effort to regain his peace he goes on
a trip along the way meeting Donkey who accompanies him the rest of his journey
to Duloc, to save Princess Fiona and back again
ADULT ONLY ROLE

DONKEY: Donkey is a talking donkey on the run from Farquaad’s guards. After being saved by Shrek he sticks by Shrek’s side and accompanies him on his trip to save Fiona from the far away castle.

Princess Fiona in her isolated castle. When Shrek and Donkey arrive at the

day with Farquaad.

INCORRUPTIBLE
Galleon Theatre Group

Written By: MICHAEL HOLLINGER
Directed By: LESLEY REED

It’s Priseaux, France, 1250 AD.
The river flooded again last week. The chandler's shop just burned to the ground. The once-glorious local monastery is crumbling from lack of repairs.
Displayed on the altar, the bones of Saint Foy haven't worked a miracle in years and so pilgrims no longer come from afar to see the Saint’s relics, pray, seek cures, or to fill monastery coffers. Even the Pope shuns the monastery at Priseaux.

The local villagers still come to church, but are as poor as church mice, so there’s no salvation there for the destitute, debt-beset monastery.
In short, The Dark Ages still look decidedly dim.
But when a larcenous one-eyed minstrel teaches the monks a riotously risky and irreverent way to save the day, there’s at last some heavenly light in the darkness…that is, until a rival abbey threatens to hijack everything.
"A lightning-fast farce, rich in verbal and physical humor."- American Theatre.
"A farcical romp, scintillating and irreverent."- Philadelphia Weekly.

Roles Available:
• CHARLES (50’s-60’s). The Abbot. A compassionate man, Charles has the best intentions…but may be prepared to compromise his values for the greater good.
• MARTIN (45-50’s). A monk and deputy to the Abbot. Doesn’t tolerate fools. No empathy for the poverty of the monastery’s flock. Will do anything to become Abbot one day.
• JACK (20’s – mid 30’s). A one-eyed minstrel. Opportunistic and jokey. Actor needs to be a natural clown. Also needs to juggle, though possibly badly, play the guitar (or similar ‘minstrel’ instrument) at least with basic strumming skills, and also hold a tune to sing ditties– not, thank goodness, all at the same time. Role requires good physical comedy skills. Actor must be fairly strong physically.
• OLF (20’s - 40). A novice monk. Rather slow, he’s always last to catch on, but is very loyal. Very strong, he does much of the heavy lifting at the monastery (Actor needs a strong back).
• FELIX (20’s –mid 30’s). A novice monk, new to the Monastery. Felix is the moral compass among the monks. Takes his vows seriously, but celibacy is not his strong point.
• PEASANT WOMAN (Mid 40’s-early 50’s). Very poor and very pious, but also mouthy, street-smart and opportunistic. Mother of Marie.
• MARIE (18 – 25). Attractive, disenchanted common-law ‘wife’ of Jack and daughter of the Peasant Woman. Must briefly dance, sing and play tambourine, even if with comically basic skills only. Physical comedy required (Marie is sometimes carried, pushed and pulled. She spends a short time inside a sack).
• AGATHA (50’s – 60’s). Charles’s sister and Abbess of Bernay. Ruthless, intimidating and devious. Arrives on stage in second act and blasts like an incendiary into the chaos at Priseaux monastery.

⎫ French accents will not be required for this play.
⎫ Actors should not be deterred from auditioning for roles requiring very brief singing-'comically bad voice' is fine!'
⎫ Actors auditioning for JACK are asked to tell their best (brief) joke at audition.
Auditionees should arrive 15 minutes prior to individual audition time to read audition sheets.
