AUDITION NOTICE - Let The Right One In 1812 Theatre in association with Redfox3 presents Let the Right One In Based on the novel and film by John Ajvide Lindqvist Adapted for the stage by Jack Thorne Directed by Justin Stephens Playing 4 - 19 September 2020 Auditions Sunday 16 February at 11am 1812 Theatre 1-3 Rose Street Upper Ferntree Gully THE PLAY Oskar is a lonely bullied teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town. Eli, a girl who has just moved in next door, doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day. Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two quickly become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know however, is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time. As their friendship deepens, a series of sinister killings shock the neighbourhood. Jack Thorne’s adaptation of Let the Right One In is based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist (Låt den rätte komma in, 2004) and the subsequent Swedish-language film version). A 2010 British-American remake of the film entitled ‘Let Me In’ followed, with both films and achieving cult status and equal critical acclaim. THE DIRECTOR Justin is one of Melbourne’s most experienced directors with a flair for cinematic and delivering high quality productions around Melbourne. Justin has a collaborative approach working closely with each team member to share a clear vision for each production. AUDITIONS AND REHEARSALS The play will be set in a suburb in Stockholm, Sweden, in the early 1980s. I do not require anyone to use an accent at the audition. Accents will be discussed, coached and introduced during the rehearsal process. I would like to encourage as many people to audition as possible, including newcomers to 1812 Theatre and Redfox3. I am looking to find a group that are dedicated and hard-working that work as part of a team. Rehearsals will be at 1812 Theatre taking place through June and July 3 days a week with one day on the weekend. We will do a read through early in April to discuss characters ahead of line learning. All lines will need to be down by 1st rehearsal. This will allow focus to be on the physical work and character development. All younger roles may be aged up to suit final casting. While there are physical parts to this production featuring violence and blood the focus will be on the love between Oskar and Eli as their friendship grows. To express your interest in a role please email the director via justin@redfox3.com.au. You will be sent a copy of the audition pieces. THE ROLES and Audition Pieces. ELI: (F) Seems like an (admittedly perhaps rather eccentric) 12-year-old girl, is in fact a centuries old vampire. Extremely agile. Can seem somewhat cold and distant, but their relationship with Oskar exposes a warmer side of their personality. Will likely cast between ages 16-22. A background in dance/gym/acrobatics is highly desirable, but not essential. (Act 2 Sc 3 & Act 1 Sc 7 & Act 1 Sc 14 & End of Act 1 Sc 12 & Act 2 Sc 18) OSKAR: (M) A fairly typical lonely, bullied 12-year-old. His troubled home life and struggles with school bullies render him a quiet and vulnerable boy. However, again, his relationship with Eli draws out a soft, playful, and also resilient aspect of his character. I expect to cast between ages 16-22. (Act 2 Sc 3 & Act 1 Sc 7 & Act 1 Sc 9 & Act 2 Sc 13 & Act 1 Sc 4 & Act 1 sc 15 & Act 2 Sc 18) HAKAN (M): Sort of Eli's guardian. Neighbour's believe him to be her father, but this is not the case. He loves Eli very deeply, and consequently kills people for blood to feed her. A somewhat questionable guy. Physically strong person required. Age range 40s-60s. (End of Act 1 Sc 12 & Act 1 Sc 14) JONNY: (M) A classic school bully. Enjoys making Oskar's life miserable. Not really a nice person. Will likely cast between ages 16-22. (Act 1 Sc 9 & Act 2 Sc 18) MICKE: (M) Jonny's sidekick. Joins in bullying Oskar, but with less relish than Jonny. There is a sense that the two have probably been friends at some point, but Micke has decided to join the winning side in becoming a bully, probably at least for reasons of self-preservation. Will likely cast between ages 16-22. (Act 1 Sc 9 & Act 2 Sc 18) KURT (M): A world-weary sweetshop owner who doesn't really have much time for annoying children, but still looks out for Oskar a little and regards him with sympathy. This is a multi-role part also playing Jocke/Nils/Dad/Stefan. Age range 30s-50s. (Act 1 Sc 4, Act 2 Sc 13) HALMBERG (M): Policeman, thoroughly perplexed by the goings-on but trying his best to keep everyone safe and calm. This actor would also play Mr Avila. Age range 30s-50s. (Act 1 Sc 8 & Act 1 sc 15) JIMMY: (M) - Walking testosterone. The bully to end all bullies. Even scarier than Jonny. This is a multi-role part also likely playing Torkel and Janne. Age range 20s-early 30s. (Act 2 Sc 18) OSKAR'S MUM (F): (THIS ROLE HAS BEEN CAST) Long-suffering alcoholic. Most likely loves Oskar and is well-meaning, but struggles with looking after him and resents his father's post-divorce lack of involvement in his life.

William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (Abridged) by Austin Tichenor and Reed Martin Directed by Tom Massey Australian Premiere Season: 18th April - 16th May 2020 Auditions by appointment 1st and 2nd February A brand new Shakespeare play has been discovered in a carpark in Leicester amidst some unimportant old bones. Written when the Bard was just a spotty 17 year old in Stratford, this thrilling manuscript seems to include the first drafts of all of his later body of work that we are familiar with today, all jumbled together in the one 100 hour play! Three Shakespearean enthusiasts have got their hands on the manuscript and are determined to present it to the good people of Sydney for the very first time ever! The Genesian Theatre Company is auditioning for three actors to bring this show to life for the very first time in Australia! The play involves just three actors taking on a wide variety of roles so we are open to seeing actors of any age or gender with a knack for Shakespeare and a flair for quick witted repartee with an audience. For more information and to book an audition please see: www.genesiantheatre.com.au/auditions Please note that this is an unpaid production. By arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd
