AUDITIONS: – Sunday 30th June at 3pm.
Bakehouse Theatre, 255 Angas Street, Adelaide.
Auditions are conducted in groups, doing a “cold” read from excerpts of the script. You do NOT need to make a specific individual appointment, but you do need to show up ON TIME.
It is not a requirement, but you may find it useful to familiarise yourself with the book, or with any other works from Terry Pratchett. It will help you get a feel for the show.
If, after the group reading you would like the Director to see an individual monologue from you, please let us know when you come in to auditions. Monologues should be no longer than 1min.
PERFORMANCE DATES: Nov. 20, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, 30.
We are trying an exciting new way of working by auditioning early and then getting actors to learn their lines before “real” rehearsals start.
Initial rehearsals: July 14th & 21st. (reading & character discussion)
Then a break during which actors should learn their lines.
Rehearsals then continue on Tues, Thurs and Sunday from September 1st.
If you are successful in your audition a full rehearsal schedule will be given out.
PLEASE REGISTER YOUR INTEREST BY EMAIL
(so that we know how many numbers to expect)
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Moist von Lipwig is a con artist, a fraud and a man faced with a life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork’s ailing postal service back on its feet. It is a tough decision.
With the help of a golem who has been at the bottom of a hole in the ground for over two hundred years, a pin fanatic and Junior Postman Groat, he’s got to see that the mail gets through. In taking on the evil chairman of the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company and a midnight killer, he’s also got to stay alive.
Getting a date with Adora Belle Dearheart would be nice, too.
In the mad world of the mail, can a criminal succeed where honest men have failed and died?
Perhaps there’s a shot at redemption for a man who’s prepared to push the envelope….
If you are not interested in acting but would like to help backstage or on FOH, please attend at the audition time and have a chat to our Stage Manager, Andrew Zeuner. He would LOVE to hear from you.
ACTING ROLES AVAILABLE:
Many and varied – too many to list here, but you need to be prepared to accept any role/roles you are offered. This is all part of the fun in a Pratchett show.
