Synopsis: This is the true story of an orphan named John Merrick, who was so physically deformed that he became known as the “Elephant Man.” Despite his hideous deformities, Merrick was an incredibly sweet, sensitive and intelligent human being, forced to display himself as a “sideshow freak” in travelling shows. He is found, and befriended, by a brilliant surgeon, who gives him a home in a London hospital for the remaining few years of his life. There he becomes the toast of Victorian London’s high society, but his thirst for normality brings about his eventual demise. A thoroughly moving and thoughtful play, which addresses the simple issue of what it means to be human.

Synopsis: True stories from the life of Elvis Presley told through the eyes of sixteen women. Some enthralled, some appalled, some obsessed. A fast-paced series of five comedic plays and three monologues based on the life of Elvis. From Tupelo Mississippi, where 11 year old Elvis wanted a BB gun instead of a guitar, to the Steve Allen show, from President Nixon’s office to Andy Warhol’s studio, from Cadillac salespeople to a Graceland guard. A touching, funny, nostalgic and novel view of the “King” from a female point of view, without him making an appearance. A family friendly comedy with heart that captures an Elvis you have never seen before. This production incorporates a generous helping of Elvis songs that the audience will know and love.

Other Information: All auditionees must have read the script, please email the director to acquire a copy. The auditionee should choose a section of one of the monologues to perform at the audition. It is not necessary to learn by heart. American accents required.
