Falsettos
6 Mar 2020 - 14 Mar 2020
Theatre & Company NSW
William Finn & James Lapine
Musical Theatre

Nominated for five 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Falsettos is a hilarious and poignant look at a modern family revolving around the life of a gay man Marvin, his wife, his lover, his soon to be bar mitzvah’d son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It is a seamless pairing of March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland, acclaimed Off Broadway musicals written nearly a decade apart. Originally created under the spectre of the AIDS crisis, this timely musical about middle class family dynamics manages to remain buoyant and satirically perceptive even as it moves towards its heartbreaking conclusion.

Established in 2017, our previous shows include ‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’, ‘Funny Girl’, the NSW premiere of ‘If/Then’ and most recently, ‘The Full Monty’.

Contact: All enquires or to book an audition contact director Christopher Hill at topherhills@gmail.com Synopsis: Surf's up, and murder's afoot, as "Psycho Beach Party" mashes up '50s psychodramas, '60s surfer films and '80s slasher horror flicks into a truly madcap comedy. Think Gidget meet’s Mommie Dearest! It’s 1962 and teenage tomboy Chicklet Forrest desperately wants to be a part of the surfer crowd on Malibu Beach. The one thing getting in her way, however, is her unfortunate tendency towards multiple personalities ... and her most dangerous alter ego -- voracious vixen Ann Bowman -- has nothing less than world domination on her mind! Hilarity ensues as mischief, madness and the passionate pursuit of the perfect wave come crashing over the heads of the audience as beach blankets and Hitchcockian psychological suspense thrillers are tossed around in this rollicking, zany comedy. Rehearsal Period: Rehearsals will be three times a week, Tuesday and Thursday evenings & Sundays at director’s discretion. Performances Dates: 26 March – 29 March and 2 – 4 April 2020 Thursday, Friday and Saturday Performances at 8pm Sunday Matinee at 2pm Please Note: This an absurdist, camp comedy piece so we are looking for actors who can bring high energy and their comedy skills in. For inspiration as to the style, there are clips from the film “Psycho Beach Party” on YouTube. As this production is set on Malibu beach, we are also looking for actors who are comfortable with being on stage in swimwear. If you are looking at auditioning for the roles of Provoloney, Yo-Yo or Starcat, you will also need to be comfortable with kissing another male actor on stage. We would love to give opportunities to, and cast established drag performers in some roles, if possible. However, we are open to casting actors who are keen to try out drag on stage. Successful cast members MUST BE available for rehearsal period as well as all production dates. Please check you are available for all performance dates before booking your audition time. ETC is a community theatre company and, as such, no cast or crew are paid.

Drama
0412 386 943

Where: The Pavilion Theatre, Castle Hill Showground (off Showground Road) When: Tuesday 22nd October 2019. Doors open at 7.30 for an 8.00pm start. Format: This will be an open audition. Please prepare a one minute monologue from your favourite Australian play OR tell us a funny story about your family! Following this we shall work on extracts from the script. Performance Run: 23rd MARCH to 22nd APRIL 2017 including two previews. Please note this includes the April school holidays and the Easter break, except for Good Friday (10th April) Rehearsals: There will be a reading in November, some individual character work and two readings/discussions in December, then twice weekly rehearsals, usually on Mondays and Thursdays from 2nd January. Background: This beautifully crafted family drama written by one of Australia’s most perceptive playwrights (The Secret River, When the Rain Stops Falling, Strictly Ballroom – screenplay) is set in the garden of a home in suburban Adelaide. Written in 2016, it has played in Adelaide, London (a four-month run to full houses), the USA, Germany and had its very first Sydney production at Belvoir St in July this year. Theme: Fran and Bob Price love their adult kids dearly. Their kids love them just as much. But things are not always what they seem … and sometimes that comes as a shock, not just to Fran and Bob! How the family deals with the changes life brings shows the strength of their love CHARACTERS: Bob Price Aged about 63, Bob is a retrenched factory worker. He’s taken his retrenchment fairly well, concentrating his energy on the garden and looking after his grandchildren after school. Bob is relatively easy-going, with a wry sense of humour. He has worked hard to give his kids the opportunities he feels he didn’t have. Fran Price Aged about 57, Fran is a registered nurse who works different shifts at the local hospital. She is a busy person who has always multi-tasked, balancing her job, the family and their finances adeptly. She hides her own emotions well but is remarkably perceptive about the feelings of others. Pippa Their daughter, aged 34, has been promoted from the classroom to Curriculum Development with the Dept of Education. She is married with two school-aged daughters. She has felt the ‘brunt’ of being the eldest child. Mark Their son, aged 32, is an Information Technology specialist. He’s kind, caring but has been keeping a secret from the family that he knows will cause heartache. Ben Their second son, aged 28, works in Finance. He is smart, easy going, persuasive, ambitious – and still brings his shirts home for Fran to wash! Rosie Their youngest child, aged 19, is still deciding what she wants to do after a ‘gap year’ trip to Europe. The age gap between the children means that Rosie looks up to the others and they feel protective of her – as do her parents. Please ring or email me for a copy of the script and READ it before the audition so you ‘get to know’ the family and understand the dynamics. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at all. Carol Wimmer: 0412 386 943 carol@wimmer.com.au
