The Ballad of Maria Marten
7 Jun 2024 - 23 Jun 2024
Hunters Hill Theatre
Beth Flintoff
Crime Drama
0478 097 525

In 1827 Maria Marten went to meet her lover and is never seen again. The play tells of the events that led to this disappearance, shows the class divisions and the part women played in society during this period. There is some singing and dancing but as the characters were rural folk it certainly doesn’t have to be perfect. The play is based on a true story and was written for an all women cast.

The Drowsy Chaperone
26 Jul 2024 - 4 Aug 2024
Swich Up Productions
Music & Lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison
Musical Theatre

Auditions - Saturday April 13th and Sunday 14th (callbacks) A music-obsessed recluse, allergic to sunlight and excitement, finds solace in a forgotten vinyl: "The Drowsy Chaperone," a 1928 musical brimming with madcap energy. The record player crackles to life, transforming his apartment into a vibrant stage. Enter a lovesick oil tycoon chasing a showgirl named Janet, torn between marrying him and the allure of "Feldzieg's Follies." Chaos erupts as gangsters disguised as pastry chefs (don't ask!) try to sabotage the wedding, while a bumbling Latin lover attempts (and fails) to steal Janet's heart. Our narrator, a walking encyclopedia of musical trivia (with a dash of questionable opinions), hilariously guides us through the mayhem. As mistaken identities multiply and dream sequences melt into reality, we catch glimpses of the narrator's own life, reminding us that even the most isolated can find connection and joy in the wackiest of places. The music fades, leaving the record player silent, but the memory of "The Drowsy Chaperone" – with its gangsters, showgirls, and a tipsy chaperone with a penchant for stealing the spotlight – remains, a testament to the transformative power of theatre.

Urinetown The Musical
3 Jun 2024 - 10 Jun 2024
Hornsby Musical Society

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
