A grown-up story about growing up! When his parents get divorced and he's forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, Evan Goldman just wants to make friends and survive the school year.

The school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading the nastiest rumours.

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.

Looking for a male actor aged 18-35 for moved readings in Sydney

NIMBY Performance Project NSW
Paula Vogel
Comedy/Drama

The NIMBY Performance Project is looking for a male actor aged 18 to 35 to perform in 4 moved readings of 'The Baltimore Waltz' by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Paula Vogel. NIMBY is a unique project, where a small group of talented artists perform shows in private homes across Sydney. NIMBY is a dynamic, supportive and sometimes outrageous team. But we all share a passion for making theatre more accessible to Sydney communities. For this show we are taking donations from our audiences - 10% of gross income goes to charity, then costs, and any income remaining is split throughout the team. We are looking for an actor to replace one of the cast early on in the rehearsal process. The rehearsals are on Sunday afternoons and the 4 performances will be on Saturday evenings - although there's flexibility around the actual dates. This is a great opportunity for an actor who enjoys working intensely with a fun team on a vibrant and colourful script. For more information, please email Guy at gbeee@hotmail.com

Stop Kiss

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.
