Characters Summary: 5 W (20s-30s)

Synopsis: Slut is a play with a central character, Lolita, and a chorus of young women who watch her rise and final devastating fall. Only girls get called sluts. No, sometimes boys get called sluts but it’s like the biggest compliment. And sometimes girls try to own it. A girl might say, ‘Yeah, I’m a slut, and I love it.’ But in the end she’ll be worn down by it. It’s a no-win situation to be a slut no matter how much a girl thinks her life’s her own and she can do whatever she wants. A slut’s a slut. One young woman described it as being like a bag to piss in. Lolita is the queen of sluts. And she puts in an almighty fight to maintain her reign. Eventually she is hauled mercilessly from her throne.

Other Information: PERFORMANCE DATES: Performance in total: FIVE (2 at Sunshine and 3 at various festival locations) Friday 29th June and Saturday 30th June followed by 3 One Act Play festivals. These occur on Saturday or Sunday. We can put in a preference for which day and session (morning, afternoon, night) but this is not a guarantee so flexibility and weekend availability for all festivals is a MUST.

Lobster Man

Author: Jonathan Cook

Director: Kellie Tweeddale

Enquiries: 0418118241

Characters: Mark
20's - 30's. Very protective of Christa and in constant pursuit of a cure for her sickness

Christa
20's. Artist with child-like personality. She is of normal intelligence but looks at things from a different point of view. She suffers from unexplainable headaches.

Lobster Man #1
Any gender of any age. Wears a mask and doesn't speak. Should be of similar build to Lobster Man #2 as they are technically the same character played by two different actors. Whilst you don't technically need to be able to dance, having confidence to move smoothly around the stage would be of benefit.

Lobster Man #2
Identical to Lobster Man #1

Precast Characters: none

Audition Venue: BDC Dance Studio
11/15 Yertchuk Ave, Ashwood VIC

Theatre: Ashwood Secondary College PAC

Company Email: info@hartwellplayers.org.au

Synopsis: Mark and Christa are trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, feeling certain that they are the last two people on the planet. That reality is shattered when a stranger arrives and Mark is faced with the bizarre fact that this visitor is someone he created in a fairy-tale he told to Christa earlier that day.

Audition Venue: Fleigner Hall
31 – 39 Highland Ave
Oakleigh East VIC 3166


Theatre: Clayton Community Centre
9 – 15 Cooke Street
Clayton VIC 3168

Company Website: http://www.encoretheatre.com.au/

Synopsis: Faced with a family gathering, world-weary Stephen Febble does his best to be difficult. When his daughter, her dreary husband Alan, their precocious child and their incontinent dog come to stay for the weekend, it’s enough to make him reach for the whisky, and the sarcasm. The climax arrives on Saturday night when his patient wife Virginia has organised a dinner party for not only the family, but neighbour Duff & his wife Bridget who also invites her ‘Society Chiropodist’, the smooth-talking Hugh Bedales.

Described as “comedy with teeth”, Michael Palin has given much to laugh at but it’s also a play with
an element of black humour as well as surprising revelations of emotion. It provides straight
comedic entertainment but also has a poignancy that gives the script depth and heart.


Other Information: British accents are expected, ages are a guide only.

Auditions are by APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please apply to organise your audition time and for any further information.

Rehearsals will be three times a week – on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday - but some negotiation may be possible.

Synopsis: Rose is a charming and dignified old maiden lady, who, after many years of being on her own, is living out her twilight years in a country nursing home which has strong links to her younger days.
As Rose's health declines, past and present in her mind begin to melt into one. She recalls vivid memories of the Great War and we learn something of her family life, her time as an ambulance driver, her love for a young Flying Corps pilot and the heroic exploits of her Flying Corps ‘Ace’ brother, through several flash-back scenes. The flash-backs highlight the very different attitudes to life and romance which separate the two generations of young people.
Other information: English accents required, not necessarily the ones indicated in the script.
