JOHN WILKES BOOTH
Male | Baritone (F2-G4) | Lead | to look 25-40 years
An American man who at 26 years of age, successfully assassinated President Abraham Lincoln during a performance at Ford’s Theatre in Washington DC on April 14, 1865. As the pioneer and leader of the group of assassins and viewed amongst them as an inspirational celebrity. The actor portraying Booth must portray a strong sense of leadership and confidence, with a smooth and seductive undertone.

LEON CZOLOGSZ
Male | Baritone (G#2-G4) | Lead | to look 25-35 years
A Polish-American man who at 28 years of age, successfully assassinated President William McKinley at the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, NY on August 31, 1901. A young, poverty-worn radical with a lethal passion for justice, the young actor portraying the role of Czolgosz calls for an excellent actor with a strong lower register. Must have the ability to speak in a Polish accent.

CHARLES J. GUITEAU
Male | Tenor (A2-Ab4) | Lead | to look 30-45 years
An American man who at 39 years of age, successfully assassinated President James Garfield in the waiting room of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station, Washington DC on July 2, 1881. A religious man with psychopathic tendencies, the actor playing Guiteau must have strong comedic and expressive skills with the added ability to portray an unhealthy dose of eerie and intense undertones.

THE BALLADEER
Male | Tenor (C3-G4) | Lead | to look 18-25 years
The Balladeer is a young man, personifying the voice of America. He takes the audience through the stories of the three successful assassinations and acts as the voice of reason in opposition of the assassins, for as long as he can. A young actor is needed to portray this role, with strong acting and singing ability. Ability to play guitar, banjo, ukulele or another stringed instrument is preferable, but not required.

SARA JANE MOORE
Female | Soprano (F3-Eb5) | Supporting | to look 35-50 years
An American woman who at age 45, unsuccessfully attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford at the St Francis Hotel in San Francisco, CA on September 22, 1975. A bit of a scatter-brain, Moore acts as some of the comedic relief in the piece as a frazzled housewife with little sense. The actress portraying Moore must have excellent comedic timing and be a strong character actress.

LYNETTE “SQUEAKY” FROMME
Female | Alto/Mezzo (A3-G5) | Supporting | to look 25-35 years
An American woman who at age 27, unsuccessfully attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford at Capitol Park in Sacramento, CA on September 5, 1975.

A strong character actress with a beautiful voice is required for this role.

JOHN HINCKLEY JR.
Male | Baritone (A2-G4) | Supporting | to look 20-30 years
An American man who at age 26, unsuccessfully attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981. A love-obsessed and depressed college student, Hinckley’s obsession with actress Jodie Foster brings him to the brink of insanity. A stereotypically ‘geeky’ character to be portrayed by an actor with the ability to make anyone feel sorry for him, despite his actions. Ability to play guitar is preferable, but not required.

GIUSEPPE ZANGARA
Male | Tenor (B2-A4) | Supporting | to look 30-40 years
An Italian-American man who at age 33, unsuccessfully attempted to assassinate President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 15, 1933.

SAMUEL BYCK
Male | Tenor or Baritone | Supporting | to look 35-55 years
An American man who at age 44, unsuccessfully attempted to assassinate President Richard Nixon on February 22, 1974. Described as a “hysterically irate schlep in a Santa Claus suit”, Byck is persuasive and surprisingly wise, despite his appearance. Must have the ability to speak in a thick Brooklyn accent. Primarily a spoken role with some singing

THE PROPRIETOR (AND OTHERS)
Male | Tenor or Baritone (Gb2-F4) | Ensemble | flexible age

Dinkum Assorted

GTC is excited to present our first show of 2019!

Probably the only play in the world written for a cast of fifteen women and a nanny goat, Dinkum Assorted is a wild comedy with music and tap dancing, set alongside some thought-provoking stories about women striving for personal and professional freedom.

Set in an Australian country town biscuit factory during World War II, Dinkum Assorted shows how the all-female cast of factory workers fight to save the factory, run a ‘Mum’s Army’ Civil Defence Unit, put on a show for the War Effort – and cope with the fact that two thousand US airmen have just been stationed outside town.

Watch these women come together to laugh, cry, sing and tap dance around stage as they plot to save Australia’s iconic biscuit, become air raid wardens, put on a show for two thousand American airmen, and kidnap Rita the goat, the regimental mascot.

Then along comes Karl, a handyman who has the job of removing a valuable mural but who keeps returning with offers of practical friendship.
A funny and deeply moving play about friendship, ego, art and the secret longing for a better life.

RABBIT HOLE @ Chippen Street Theatre
Apr 18 @ 7:30 pm – Apr 27 @ 10:00 pm
RABBIT HOLE @ Chippen Street Theatre
Christie Koppe directs the 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama RABBIT HOLE which tells the heart-breaking story of Becca and Howie Corbett who have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. RABBIT HOLE charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day.
“With RABBIT HOLE, David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted the most serious, simply told work of his career—a painstakingly beautiful, dramatically resourceful, exquisitely human play.” —BackStage.
Our wonderful cast includes: Imogen Morgan as Becca Corbett; Peter-William Jamieson as Howie Corbett; Rachel Giddens as Izzy (Becca’s younger sister); Alison Chambers as Nat (Becca and Izzy’s mother); Sam Wallace as Jason (a local teenager).
Director Christie Koppe: “This is a deeply personal play for anyone who has lost a family member. It speaks truth about the endeavour to continue life after the initial grieving process has passed. While this play provides no resolution to the action, it is in this that its beauty lies. This is real life on stage and the audience is invited to share in the emotion that underlies regular everyday events that parents stomach after the loss of their child.”
Rabbit Hole is a tightly focused five-character drama punctuated with sharp, surprising flashes of aching humour.
Season: April 18 – 27 (8 performances)
Venue: Chippen Street Theatre – 45 Chippen St, Chippendale NSW
