Power, sex, ambition, greed…. It’s just another day at the office.
A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical comedy, follows the rise of young window-washer, J. Pierrepont Finch, as he follows the advice from a book entitled “How to Succeed in Business” and begins a meteoric rise as he climbs the corporate ladder at the World-Wide Wicket Company.
Finch’s unorthodox and morally-questionable business practices jeopardise not only his career but also his romance with secretary Rosemary Pilkington.
With a beloved score by Frank Loesser, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING is packed to the roof with hit standards such as “I Believe in You,” “Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm,” “The Company Way,” “Been a Long Day,” “Rosemary,” and “Brotherhood of Man.”

This chilling, unusual play takes as its influence from the myth of Romulus and Remus.
Twins Robin and Linda were given up for adoption shortly after birth by their mother Helena. Years later, on their 21st birthday, they lure Helena to a derelict building on the pretext that she will be meeting her lover, Michael. The reality is rather different.
Cast of Characters
Helena Vincent – 40 – 50 – very well spoken, elegant and impeccably groomed, she is self centred and has made a very comfortable life for herself and is used to getting her own way. The actor must be able to move from self-possessed to an emotional wreck through the course of the action.
Robin 21 yo male – dominated by his twin sister, he is weak and needs to be likeable, he wants to please.
Linda 21 yo female – charming, dominating and needs to be able to switch between rational and crazy within the space of a few sentences and then back again as if nothing has happened.
All characters need upper class British accents
This is a strong dramatic piece which has violence and sexual violence so the actors will need to be prepared to be very physical with each other.
The auditions will be open auditions so everyone will need to arrive at the same time. They will be given parts of the script on the night to rehearse and then read.
Audtionees will also be required to prepare a piece to present at the audition -this will be given to you at the time of booking your audition
Rehearsals, 1 to 2 weeknights per week and 1 weekend afternoon. More closer to performance. Days agreed based on cast availability.
Venue, STAG theatre, Strathmore
Please contact the director to schedule an audition.

Oliver invites a stranger around to his apartment for some company – and works out pretty quickly that they’re only interested in one thing (it isn’t the wine).
Things go from bad to worst-case-scenario when Oliver’s house-guest attempts to make a covert getaway and gets run down by the rideshare they were meant to be escaping in.
Now Oliver’s stuck with the ghost of a bad decision stuck in his apartment – and in desperate need of a way to get them out. The sooner the better, too. Turns out a ghost who does nothing but binge-watch TV is bad for your sanity – and even worse for your power bill.
Pop art and poltergeists collide in this brand-new Australian comedy that’s bursting with colour and will leave you dying of laughter. Not literally.
Written by Michael Thebridge and directed by Gabrielle Reiher.
