I’m so delighted we now have a theatre and dates for our production. The Royal Exchange Theatre in uptown Newcastle. All Fridays and Saturdays in October 2018!! With the show opening on Friday the 5th October we are now beginning the search for a cast. We have many roles still available, including pianist/musical director and some twenty actors/singers.
Given that our show is a satire, the music that we’re using is from musicals and pop-songs from the late twentieth century. If you’re an actor who’s interested in being a member of Australia’s very own Royal Household, check out who we’re looking for below:
Irving: a professional assistant to Princess Deanna – a man in his late thirties to forties.
Dame Doctor Lady Glad Spender: Deanna’s mother and mega-star of stage and screen – a woman in her fifties to sixties.
Lord Ernest Spender: Deanna’s father and a mega-star of stage and screen – a man in his fifties to sixties.
Prince Gustav: Prince Consort to the Queen, father of Prince Bruce – a man in his fifties to sixties.
Stephanie: the Royal Family’s Fairy Godmother, who until her recent sex change was the Royal Family’s Godfather – a man in his forties to fifties.
Christina: a woman who does the voiceovers during the show – her age doesn’t matter.
Carl: a professional assistant to the Fairy Godmother – a man in his thirties to forties.
Jean: professional assistant to Lord Ernest and Lady Glad, an actor who can speak with a French accent – a man in his thirties, forties or fifties.
Henry: professional assistant to Prince Gustav – a man in his thirties, forties or fifties.
Women Who Asks A Question: female actor – her age doesn’t matter.
Bejewelled Woman: a female actor – her age doesn’t matter.
Chorus: eight actors who can clap, sing and do a simple line dance.
We will be holding auditions in Newcastle on May 5, if you’re interested in any of these roles please email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
