Susan, an eccentric, untidy, endlessly chatty woman is on a mission to find happiness. She’s on her way back to Australia to rekindle her memories of a trip she made many years ago. Will she find love second time? Will she stay on? Can she figure out the toaster?
This play is written as a monologue that can be performed by one courageous actor. However it can also be played by three or six actors each taking a portion of the script and portraying a different aspect of Susan. The character is essentially the same but each actor brings one personality to the part.
In a perfect world six actors would be great and the director would love to cast a male as one aspect of Susan’s personality. In the production there will be scenes in which all the actors will play non-speaking roles in group scenes. However, as each actor appears ‘on their own’ rehearsal time will be organised so that anyone cast should not be called unless they will be used.
Auditions at Theatre 62
Auditions take place in advance of productions to allow the Director to assemble their cast.
Theatre 62 holds a read-through ahead of auditions to allow interested auditionees to better familiarise themselves with the play and to meet the Director.
Each Director has her/his own way of auditioning; some prefer to read straight from the text, others choose to try improvisation; some a mixture of both. Auditions can often be a lot of fun, and gives an actor a chance to try out for different parts.
At Theatre 62 we like to welcome new faces to the stage as well as longer-standing regulars. Most auditions are ‘open’, which means non-members are welcome to come along and audition. However, if you are successful you will need to join Theatre 62 as a Full Member.
Auditions are held at Wickham Theatre Centre, location here.
