AMADEUS Auditions
25 Oct 2014 - 29 Nov 2014
Genesian Theatre NSW
Peter Shaffer
Drama Comedy

Amadeus by Peter Shaffer Directed by Stephen Lloyd-Coombs Season: 25th October - 29th November 2014 Preview night 24th October Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm Sunday matinée at 4.30pm 'Mozart is a genius, the most brilliant musician the world will ever see. But the court of eighteenth century Vienna doesn't recognise his talents - only Antonio Salieri, the court composer, does, and is tortured by what he hears. Seethng with rage at the genius of this flippant buffoon and suddenly aware of his own mediocrity, Salieri declares war and sets out to destroy the man he sees as God's instrument on earth. Peter Shaffer's award-winning play is a rich, exuberant portrayal of a God-like man among mortals, and lives destroyed by envy.' A Reading/Information Evening will be held at the Theatre (420 Kent Street) on Wednesday 16 July at 7.15pm Auditions will be held by appointment over the weekend of Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 July 2014. Audition will be by prepared piece from the play. All enquiries to amadeus@genesiantheatre.com.au Roles Available Antonio Salieri: (30-50) Narrator and only character to break the fourth wall. Salieri is the talented and well respected court composer of Vienna who lives his life under God. But when Mozart takes residence he becomes a man fuelled by envy and jealousy. Forged by old traditions his creativity and longevity is threatened by the new wave of music that he tries desperately to emulate. From warm and charismatic to cold and calculated, this is Salieri's descent into murder. Wolfgang Mozart: (20-35) A musical prodigy that sees him become a wanted commodity in the eyes of the public but behind closed doors harbours an immaturity that could be his downfall. Socially inept and fuelled by passion and ego he speaks first and thinks later. Although played comically, his struggle to have his genius noticed comes from a very real place. Constanze Weber: (20-28) The fiancé of Mozart. She is the only spoken female role in the play. Deeply in love with Mozart she realises that Salieri is pulling the strings in Vienna and holds the key to Mozart's success. Feminine and passionate in front of society but vulgar and playful when behind closed doors. Emperor Joseph II: (40-70) The ruler of the land. Joseph is not your average royal, rather he is more open and natural to those who meet him. He does not rule with an iron fist but is more personable and fair then many would believe. He speaks his mind but does so in a way that harms no one. He is the variable to both Salieri's and Mozart's success. Count Von Strack: (30-65) The Emperor's Chamberlain, and appropriate to this position of trust and intimacy a quintessential creature of the court: decorous, diplomatic, discreet, debonair. Like the career politician he is, always smooth and even suave, calculating his advantage and playing the long game with a certain impartial elegance. Count Orsini-Rosenberg: (30-65) Director of the Opera. 'Benevolent to all things Italian' Much like Von Strack he cuts off Mozart's ascension at every turn and harbours a resentment to Wolfgang's work and notoriety as 'celebrity'. A part of the old tradition. Baron Van Swieten: (30-60) Prefect of the Imperial Library and ardent freemason. He is much more open and supportive to Mozart's work and not afraid to speak up to the Counts. Has an enthusiasm for 'old-fashioned' music. The Venticelli: (20-40) These two gentlemen are the purveyors of fact, rumour and gossip throughout the play. They play off of one another to a tee and never leave each other's side. They're the 'gardeners of the grapevine' who speak at such a pace and with such repetition that it's hard not to get carried away in their tabloid whispers. Non-speaking roles in Chorus: Major-Domo Salieri's Valet Salieri's Cook Teresa Salieri Katherina Cavalieri Kappelmeister Bonno Citizens of Vienna *Please note that the chorus will be a major part of the play and will need a great sense of physicality as they will be filling in for various roles with various lines. Experience in mime, mask-work and singing a plus. Please email amadeus@genesiantheatre.com.au with a time preference and character you'd like to audition for.

Avenue Q
8 Nov 2014 - 9 Nov 2014
Trifle Theatre Company VIC
Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx
Musical theatre
-

Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is an American musical in two acts, based on the book written by Jeff Whitty. It is a laugh-out-loud coming-of-age parable, addressing and satirizing the issues and anxieties associated with entering adulthood. Live actors and puppets manipulated by unconcealed puppeteers join forces in song and dance to tell the timeless story of fresh-faced college graduate, Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. Despite its decidedly adult content (dealing with themes such as racism, pornography, homosexuality and schadenfreude), much of the show's ironic humour arises from its parody of Sesame Street, a metaphor of the contrasts between childhood and adulthood, and between the children's TV world and the real world. Avenue Q will be produced in Melbourne for the 2015 Melbourne International Comedy Festival by Trifle Theatre Company. Please note that the pay structure for this production will be co-operative, governed by a production agreement based on MEAA co-operative production guidelines.

Stop Kiss
22 Jan 2015 - 7 Feb 2015
Boutique Theatre VIC
Diana Son
Play
0430883662

Sara and Callie are walking through New York City's West Village very late at night, when they share their first kiss. This leads to a vicious attack by an angry bystander, in which Sara is horribly injured. She falls into a coma, which becomes one of the major subjects of the play. George, Callie's good friend, tries to help with the situation, but there is little he can do. Peter, Sara's ex-boyfriend from St. Louis, comes to help nurse her back to health. Throughout Stop Kiss, relationships are explored, formed, and even ended. Diana Son elaborates on the depths of human emotion and compassion in this play. The story is told out of chronological order: alternating scenes take place respectively before and after the assault, which is not shown onstage.
