Buried Child

The Mount Players
Auditions: 11 Feb 2023 @ 10:00am,
12 Feb 2023 @ 10:00am

Author: Sam Shepard

Director: Robert Wallace

Genre: Drama

Agent: By Arrangement with Music Theatre International Australasia Pty Ltd

Synopsis

Buried Child by Sam Shepard is a macabre look at an American Midwestern family with a dark, terrible secret. This play brought its author the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Although dark in many respects, it is delivered with humour and pathos. Heavily atmospheric and challenging, the play will entrance its audience with questions of morality and it’s take on the disintegration of the American dream. There is hope however, as the final moments of the play suggest salvation with a surprise ending

Author: Brian Friel

Director: Joan Moriarty

Genre: Drama

Agent: The Agency, 24 Pottery Lane, Holland Park, London

Synopsis

Set in 1990s Ballybeg, County Donegal, the play explores the relationship between the blind Molly Sweeney, her husband Frank and her ophthalmologist Mr Rice, who performs a successful operation to restore Molly’s sight. The play is related as shards of memory from each of the characters who recall the operation and the dramatic impact Molly’s sightedness had on all of them. While the two men believe the gift of sight would be nothing short of a miracle, Molly finds her new world threatening and overwhelming and withdraws from it.

This beautifully crafted story captures eloquently each character’s happy and painful histories, leading to an unexpected and very touching conclusion.

The Glass Menagerie

Warrandyte Theatre Company
Auditions: 19 Mar 2023 @ 4:00pm,
21 Mar 2023 @ 8:00pm

Author: Tennessee Williams

Director: Grant Purdy

Genre: Drama

Agent: Origin Theatrical

Synopsis

This gorgeous, classic American play, rarely presented by community theatre, portrays a timeless story about family. The Warrandyte Theatre Company production will have a clean, yet somewhat magical set that will not detract from the series of memories being presented.

Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle of middle age, shares a dingy St. Louis apartment with her son Tom, in his early 20s, and his slightly older sister, Laura. Amanda worries especially about the future of her daughter Laura, a young woman with a limp and is insecure in the outside world. Tom works in a shoe warehouse doing his best to support the family.

Amanda is obsessed with finding a suitor (or, as she puts it, a “gentleman caller”) for Laura, her daughter. Pressured by his mother to help find a caller for Laura, Tom invites Jim, an acquaintance from work, home for dinner.

The delighted Amanda spruces up the apartment, prepares a special dinner, and converses coquettishly with Jim. Laura discovers that Jim is the boy she was attracted to in high school and has often thought of since. Jim recognizes Laura’s feelings of inferiority and encourages her to think better of herself. However, Jim tells Laura that he is engaged to be married, Laura asks him to take a broken glass unicorn as a gift and he then leaves. When Amanda learns that Jim is to be married, she turns her anger upon Tom and cruelly lashes out at him.

The play concludes with Tom saying that he left home soon afterward and never returned.

A sensitive and gently humorous study of two elderly widowed sisters who are living together in a beach house on an island off the Maine coast, and pass their days watching whales from the porch and reconciling their complicated relationship.

The Popular Mechanicals

Encore Theatre Inc.

3 Apr 2023 @ 7:30pm

Author: Keith Robinson, Tony Taylor and William Shakespeare

Director: Andrew Ferguson

Genre: Comedy

Agent: Sue Barnett & Associates Pty Ltd

Synopsis

The popular mechanicals are Shakespeare’s greatest clowns – the endearingly amateur acting ensemble led by Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Here, they take centre-stage in a wild imagining of what goes on in the wings.
The result is a riotously funny mix of Shakespearean verse, songs and dance that is lewd, rude and ingenious. Clowning, vaudeville, slapstick, farce, stand-up comedy and some hilarious puppetry come together to create an unhinged feast of wit and profanity.

Audition Dates and Times:

3:30pm on:

  • Sun 2nd Apr 2023

  • Mon 3rd Apr 2023

Sue’s daughter is getting married. While the bride-to-be brims over with excitement, Sue grits her teeth and wonders how she will endure it. The wedding will force her to come to terms with her own, very different circumstances: the end of her long marriage, her estranged husband and his new partner, and questions she has tried very hard to ignore. As pressure builds, the armour she has carefully constructed around herself is threatened. She is forced to a reckoning with family, her oldest friend, and even the past in the form of an old flame with an agenda of his own. Can she find the strength to face a very different future from the one she imagined?
