AUDITION NOTICE for SEVENTEEN
“Workshop/ Audition” 22 January in Maleny.
Location to be advised on receipt of inquiry.
Opportunities exist for mature ( late 60’s – 70’s – 3 men, 3 women) performers to be part of a unique ensemble to bring SEVENTEEN by Australian playwright, Matthew Whittet to The Maleny Playhouse in late March 2023.
Performances will be in Maleny but rehearsal location will be negotiated with the successful applicants.
I will be directing this work for Maleny Players and invite creatives prepared to be brave, adventurous, open to a physical role – at times be close and intimate , dance and move , drink and perhaps even pash. Swearing happens in this play too.
Work will be hard to achieve an authentic performance.
This is not a tokenistic work and every effort will be given to support the successful ensemble to fulfil their creative roles.
Tom, Mike , Edwina, Sue & Ronny are 17 ( Edwina is a slightly younger 15 yr old. sister) and are seriously celebrating. This is the night they say goodbye to adolescence and begin the journey of their lives. For each it is a phoenix moment- exhilarating and sad, scorching and beautiful. An optimistic work about transformation and ultimately, about letting go.
Please send just an expression of interest / not really interested in what you have done before so no long bios. A photo would be helpful
