Jul 20 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Phoenix Ensemble is excited to call for auditions for their next show, ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ – to be held on Saturday, 20 July from 9:00 AM at Beenleigh Showgrounds, Beenleigh QLD 4207.

With a gorgeous pop-based score, gothic fantastical costumes, set and staging a killer choreography, this show has youthful energy excited to breathe life into a ‘monster’ of a show!

Synopsis: 

An evocative tale of two men – one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman – and two women – one, beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself– both women in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret. A devoted man of science, Dr Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr Hyde.

Auditions are held on Saturday, 20 July 2019, with the performance season from 18 October – 9 November 2019.

Jekyll and Hyde Auditions

Straight (Nash Theatre) @ The Play Shed, Nash Theatre
Jul 20 @ 2:00 pm

Nash Theatre is looking for three cast members required for their upcoming production, ‘Straight’ (2 Males and 1 Female aged between 20 and 30). ‘Straight’ will be performed between 20 September – 19 October 2019.

Roles: 

Ben—26-year-old investment banker living in Boston. Waist deep in the murky waters of “the odyssey period,” the phase between college and “adulthood, when careers idle, family life awaits and roots are planted nowhere. He and Emily have been dating since college days without momentum. His job provides plenty of money but little satisfaction or direction. Socially capable, casually masculine and always well-liked. Ben is used to winning at life. But he is becoming secretly anxious that the real world is not living up to its promises and worries that maybe “this is it”

Chris—20 year (and three quarters) history student. He likes beer, sarcasm and irony but mostly uses them as a front to mask more deep-seated insecurities. He is socially precocious and, perhaps in compensation for his age outwardly confident in his interactions with Ben and Emily, making his rare moments of vulnerability surprising, if logical upon reflection. He is appealing, in a boyish way, and he knows it, though he wouldn’t admit that even to himself.

Emily—27 nearing the end of purgatory as a PhD candidate in bioinformatics at Harvard. Older then Ben but still a student. Emily looks to him ad her window to the “real world,” which she sees as the prize waiting for her at the end of the long tunnel of her studies. Emily holds herself to the highest of standards but without \taking herself too seriously. She is quirky, optimistic, social, trusting and idealistic, mentally robust but young at heart.

Audition Details and Information: 

Auditions will be held Saturday, 20 July 2019 at 2:00 PM at the Play Shed (located behind the Merthyr Road Uniting Church).

Cast members must not be afraid to show affection and the male cast members must feel very comfortable in showing affection to the other male cast member.

Centenary Theatre Group is proud to call auditions for its next show ‘Pulp’, written by Joseph Zettelmaier, and performing 9-30 November 2019.

Synopsis: 

Los Angeles, 1933. PI Frank Ellery doesn’t know it, but he’s taken on the strangest case of his life. A literary agent has been gruesomely murdered. The 4 suspects: his remaining clients, all writers for different pulp magazines. Frank dives into the mystery, and his world turns upside down as life begins to imitate literature. Science fiction, romance, adventure, horror…and one down-on-his-luck gumshoe who’s about to learn what really lurks between the lines.

Audition Details: 

Auditions will be held on Saturday, 27 July (from 1:30 PM), at Chelmer Community Centre – 101 Birkdale Road, Birkdale QLD.

A short, suitably appropriate pre-prepared piece would be highly regarded but is not mandatory. Selections from the script will be read on the day. An American accent is a prerequisite for Frank and Desiree and is preferred but optional for the other characters.
