Audition Requirements
If auditioning for any role other than Woodstock:

Please prepare two contrasting songs – one to make us laugh, one to make us cry. An audition pianist will be available. Sheet music must be well presented and in the keys you intend to sing. You may be asked to stop before you have finished your songs so please choose appropriate starting points. No backing tracks.

Please prepare a one-minute monologue or poem, existing or original, to be presented in the style of the character you are auditioning for.

Please bring a recent headshot and (optional) resume of relevant experience.

If auditioning for the role of Woodstock:

Please prepare one light-hearted song or poem. An audition pianist will be available. Sheet music must be well presented and in the key you intend to sing.

Please prepare a one-to two-minute mime/dance to tell us a story.

Please bring a recent headshot and (optional) resume of relevant experience.

Dance audition:

All auditionees who attend a call-back will be required to participate in a dance and movement audition. This will incorporate movement-based acting skills, as well as a choreographed combination and some technical tapping (of intermediate level).

The dance requirements for this show involve high energy, fast-paced movements and an ability to characterize through movement. There is a moderate level of technical jazz and tapping (flexibility is not a focus so much as agility and coordination).

Auditionees of all levels of dance experience are encouraged to audition. Beginner level dancers should focus on demonstrating character and energy – bring a positive attitude into the room and give everything a go. We will consider anyone that shows a potential to work hard and upskill throughout the rehearsal process.

All auditionees should bring the following to the Dance & Movement call-back:

Water

Wear gym/activewear that you can move in

Women may bring chorus heels and jazz shoes, or runners

Men may wear jazz shoes or runners

Bring tap shoes if you own them

No jeans, skirts, sandals, thongs or bare feet

Synopsis: It's a hot July day at the Good Shepherd Funeral Parlor and Martin Lamb, the mortician, is presiding over the wake of the late Walter Porteus. His dream of a perfect wake is undermined by his son Jimmy, whose interests are more amatory than funereal, and by the conniving, contentious Porteus family members, who are already clashing over the will. To further inflame matters, the air conditioning breaks down and the wrong body turns up in the casket. Then a mysterious mourner appears and a valuable piece of jewelry disappears. When the air conditioning repairman pulls a gun and decides to hold them all hostage, things really start to get interesting in this hilarious black comedy.

Other Information: Successful cast MUST BE available for rehearsal period as well as all production dates.

Characters Summary: 6F (teenager-64)

Characters: MERYL LOUISE DAVENPORT:
A thirty-something woman – Meryl is a mother of three and wife to Barry. Stressed out, she is frantic and dishevelled. Her monologue is a frantic stream of conscious sprint that begins slowly and gathers pace throughout. Meryl is a woman dealing with the nagging of her children as well as the pressure of being a perfect mother to the outside world while also thinking about random day-to-day thoughts. She is always on the go and at full speed. Mother warrior!

TIGGY ENTWHISTLE:
Late thirties to fifties – Tiggy is a member of the Cactus Appreciation Society, she has turned into a cactus fanatic because her partner, Harry has recently left her for a younger woman. A vulnerable woman. She is very timid and shy towards public speaking. Her monologue is a speech at the Cacti convention to fellow succulent lovers.

MARY O’DONNELL: (Actress must be a reasonable singer and dancer)
A teenage student – Mary O’Donnell is the most talented singer/dancer/actress at St. Brigid’s and is preparing for the school talent show. She was a past winner and is competitive and all about performing. Now, clad in her homemade costume, she is all set to perform “O'Shaughnessy” from CATS - until she discovers Angela McTerry is doing it too. She attempts to hide her own flaws and insecurities, by pointing out the flaws of others (Angela McTerry). She must be able to sing and dance in a musical theatre style as well as contemporary style. Mary performs a dance to a song by Shaft, lip-syncing while Irish dancing!

THERESA McTERRY:
A twenties – thirties woman – Theresa is a happy bride preparing herself on the morning of her wedding day. She is a typical bride who has dreamt of every minute detail since she was a child. She tries to contemplate the positives on her wedding day, as though she is trying to convince herself. She is frightened about being married as she feels her individual identity may be consumed by the role of being a “wife” and she will be restricted only to Ted. She needs to be able to cover excellent comic timing as well serious dramatic tension. This character will not mind being on stage in her underwear.

WINSOME WEBSTER:
A 50+ woman – Winsome is a widow who volunteers for the Blind society. She is conservative looking and husband Jim died several years earlier. She is part of a widows club; however, her sense of belonging is not fulfilled as they are only united by their husbands’ deaths. She begins reading to a blind man named Patrick. She is renewed with a youthfulness she thought she has lost by reading a romantic, slightly erotic book to Patrick. She defies societal expectations and fantasizes about the unexpected.

ZOE STRUTHERS:
Late 40’s upwards (Requires American accent) (Actress must be a reasonable singer and dancer).
Described as an “Aging American Diva”. Zoe Struthers is an American diva who comes to Melbourne for her finale performance. Her husband Daryl left her and her house burnt down and left her with nothing. She has severe alcoholism and bitterness. A reuniting with her daughter, Deidre, assists with forgiving her past deeds and she is now becoming sober and attempting to get on her with life. This character needs to have a singing voice, this monologue mainly done through song. She is a Ronda Burchmore / Liza Minnelli / Judy Garland type of diva, who still has it even when she is over 50.

Synopsis: The award-winning Australian playwright Joanna Murray-Smith writes a sextet of monologues of the lives of six very different women. The play exposes six women balancing their inner and outer lives with humour and often-desperate cunning. They range in age from a feisty teenager to a 64-year old widow yearning for the unexpected. Bombshells is primarily about women on the edge. Overall Bombshells offers an extremely entertaining insight into the lives of six women living in the western world today. It is going to be a hugely enjoyable and fulfilling challenge for us and I hope to see you at the audition.

Synopsis: Three fearless fans of the bard embark on a quest to do all 37 of Shakespeare's plays in an hour and a half. I’m looking for three actors with an unusual skills mix:
1. Each must be totally comfortable with audience interaction. There’s no fourth wall here.
2. Each must be an experienced and proficient improvisor. Although the piece is fully scripted, much of the byplay is improvised, and will vary from night to night.
3. Each must be confident and accomplished in the delivery of Shakespearean dialogue.
It’s a high energy piece, so the need to be able to keep up a frenetic pace over two acts is essential. Excellence in physical comedy is a must.
Each actor must also be confident in the delivery of a range of UK accents.


Other Information: At the auditions, I’ll be asking auditionees to complete two tasks:
1. From the script. Deliver Daniel’s opening monologue, found on page 1 of the script then Jess’s first monologue on page 2, then Adam’s first monologue which starts on page 5. Show me something different with each read.

2. Not from the script. Come prepared to deliver one Shakespearean monologue of the auditionee’s choice. It is important that you do not try and make it funny – that’s not the point. I want to know that you understand the text and the meter of Shakespearean text.

For audition appointment, enquiries and information regarding script, email peter.newling@gmail.com
