VOLDEMORT AND THE TEENAGE HOGWARTS MUSICAL PARODY
Apr 1 @ 7:30 pm – Apr 25 @ 8:00 pm

Presented by Salty Theatre, Theatre Works and Red Hot Productions, He Who Must Not Be Named apparates to Australian shores this April.

Salty Theatre making a name for itself as an “underground highlight” (Cameron Woodhead – The Age), “someone to watch” (ArtsHub) and “the answer to off-broadway in Melbourne” (Youshouldseeitmelb) bringing beloved pop culture to the fore with humour, grit and little bit of spice. Before Voldemort was, He Who Must Not Be Named, he was just Tom Riddle, another moody teen that couldn’t talk to girls. Join Tom and his Hogwarts classmates on a hilarious musical adventure as he learns the ways of love, proper snake maintenance and the Unforgivable Curses.This Harry Potter musical parody is sure to leave you spellbound! Following two hugely successful back-to-back seasons at The Edinburgh Fringe and sold-out performances at The King’s Head in London, Voldemort And the Teenage Hogwarts Musical Parody hits Australia for the first time ever.

Created by Los Angeles based comedians Zach Reino (A.P. Bio, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Chris Grace (Superstore, This Is Us) and written by Zac Reino, Fiona Landers, Richie Root and Scott Passarella, this hour-long pop-rock musical invites you to experience the world of Hogwarts like you’ve never seen it before. Teen angst, hormones and young love fill the magical halls, along with a few familiar and much-loved characters as they sing about ‘Cutting Your Soul’, ‘Care of Magical Creatures’ and ‘Love That Must Not Be Named’.

The show stars some of Australia’s brightest talent, both seasoned and new to the scene. The magical halls of Hogwarts will be brought to life by LaLa Barlow (Legally Blonde, The Best Little Warehouse in London), Alex Donnelly (Peter Pan, Richard III), Jay Haggett (Shrek, High Fidelity), Stephanie John (Mary Poppins, Nine), Jonathon Shilling (Kinky Boots, Rent), Ashley Taylor (The Sound of Music, Les Miserables) and Guillermo Urra (Evil Dead The Musical, Top Gun! The Musical). Directed and Choreographed by Sarahlouise Younger (Top Gun! The Musical, The Rocky Horror Picture Show) – Musical Direction by David Youings (People Suck, Muriel’s Wedding, Musical Assistant) – Costume and Set Design by Madeline Nibali (Hotel Bonegilla, Lear) – Production Concept by Sarahlouise Younger and Ashley Taylor – Stage Managed by Andrew Hughes (The Importance of Being Earnest, Barnum The Circus Musical, Intern SM).

Running this April at Theatre Works, Voldemort And the Teenage Hogwarts is a raucous musical comedy that lifts up its robes to give you a glimpse into the secret world of witches and wizards. Get your wands ready.

“It is a wizarding-world extravaganza, flourished with unforgivable curses, witty humour and muggle-worthy entertainment. A must-see for Harry Potter fans.” – VoiceMag.uk“

An hour loaded with sharply written Potter-parody, gags every few seconds, stellar singing and comedy.” – FringeReview

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE
May 25 @ 7:00 pm – May 27 @ 10:00 pm

Auditions: 25 May @7:30 to 10:00 p.m., 26 May @ 7:30 to 10:00 p.m.
Author: William Shakespeare
Director: Roderick Chappel
Synopsis
Antonio, a prosperous merchant of Venice in the sixteenth century, is approached by
his old friend Bassanio for a loan. Bassanio wishes to present himself in style and
travel to Belmont, in order to woo Portia, a young and beautiful heiress. Antonio’s
fortune is currently tied up in his trading ships, and he does not have the required
funds in hand. However, he agrees to act as guarantor, if Bassanio can borrow the
money elsewhere. Bassanio approaches Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. Shylock
hates Antonio, who has always treated him with contempt because he is Jewish, and
because he charges interest on money that he lends. However, Shylock agrees to loan
Bassanio 3000 ducats, to be repaid in three months. Pretending that it is a mere jest,
he specifies that the penalty for failure to pay on time will be a pound of Antonio’s
flesh, cut from his breast. Confident that his ships will return to Venice in good time
so that the debt can be repaid, Antonio accepts this condition for the bond.
Shylock’s daughter Jessica elopes with Lorenzo, fleeing her father’s house with much
of her father’s money, with the intention of becoming a Christian. Shylock is furious
at the loss of both his daughter and his ducats.
Under the terms of her late father’s will, no suitor may marry Portia unless they
choose correctly between three caskets, made respectively of gold, silver and lead.
Portia complains to Nerissa, her maid and confidant, about her lack of freedom to
make her own choice of husband. Unsuccessful suitors choose wrongly, and go
disappointed away. Bassanio, with his young friend Gratiano, sails to Belmont, where
Bassanio chooses the correct casket, to Portia’s delight. Portia and Bassanio prepare
to marry, as do Nerissa and Gratiano.
News comes to Belmont that Antonio’s ships have been unexpectedly delayed; he
cannot repay the loan on time, and Shylock will demand his pound of flesh at the
Duke of Venice’s court. Portia and Nerissa disguise themselves as men – a learned
lawyer and her clerk – and travel to Venice, where Portia uses brilliant legal argument
to confound Shylock’s malicious intentions, and save Antonio’s life.
After the trial Portia and Nerissa, still disguised, will accept no payment, but each
asks only for a ring which she has given her husband, who has sworn never to part
with it. Bassanio and Gratiano very reluctantly give the lawyer and clerk these
precious rings. Portia and Nerissa later have fun upbraiding their husbands for giving
away the rings, before the deception is revealed and all ends happily.

MORE INFO
The Merchant of Venice is one of Shakespeare’s best loved plays. This production is
to be set in the original sixteenth century, with period costumes.
The play has approximately 23 named characters, and 11 major roles (with dialogue
in between 5 and 9 of the 20 scenes) need to be played by individual actors. Five
other characters are significant but appear in only one or two of the scenes, and it
would be possible for one actor to play more than of these roles. Two roles that are
nominally male could be played by either a man or a woman. The full cast may
number about 15 or 16, including between 3 and 6 women, depending on the outcome
of the auditions.
Auditions will be open, reading from sections of the script, and there is no
requirement to learn or prepare anything in advance. It will be of assistance if
candidates who have auditioned remain at their audition session to read against other
candidates.
If you wish to audition, but are unable to make the above-mentioned dates, please get
in touch as we may be able to accommodate other dates.
Please ring or email the Director to book into one of the audition sessions, or with any
questions. Audition pieces can be emailed on request. The script, which has been
trimmed somewhat, can also be emailed on request.

Productions revels in all the bells and whistles, presenting theatre that is fun, entertaining and beautiful.

About the Show: On the back of the success of ‘Sugarbabies: A Boylesque Musical’, ‘Scoundrels’ is a brand
new boylesque revue that delves into a world of love, jealousy, betrayal, lust and infidelity- all those deadly
sins that we hold near and dear to our hearts. In a cabaret courtroom, the beautiful Ziegfeld Boys stand trial
for the various sins they have committed against one another. The show is a brilliant blend of old world
burlesque, musical theatre and clever comedy dipped in sensuality and dusted with sequins.
Songs include: ‘Mein Heir’, ‘Whatever Lola Wants’, ‘Cell Block Tango’, ‘Too Darn Hot’, ‘If (You Hadn’t but You
Did)’, ‘Let’s Be Bad’, ‘Mr. Monotony’, ‘Sisters’, ‘The Saga of Jenny’, ’By Myself’ and many more!

deconstructing the traditional roles it defines, giving a fresh take on the genre. We are looking for strong

who are self-confident and willing to be a bit cheeky. We are actively seeking performers of colour for this
show. Performers of all vocal ranges are encouraged to apply.

——————— 

In 1959, Rydell High School’s students are starting a new year. (“Alma Mater Parody”) 

Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl at school and Danny Zuko, the leader of the ‘Burger Palace Boys’, had a brief romantic fling over the summer. Sandy recounts her version of the fling to the ‘Pink Ladies’ (Jan, Marty, Frenchy, and Betty Rizzo), while Danny tells the boys (Roger, Doody, Sonny, and Kenickie) his rendition (“Summer Nights”). Sandy and Danny soon bump into each other at school, and while Sandy is happy to see him, he plays it cool. Meanwhile, the kids gather in the hall as Doody shows off his new guitar. The rock star wannabe gives an impromptu concert in the hall (“Those Magic Changes”). 

At Marty’s pajama party, the girls give each other pierced ears, and talk about boys. Marty tells about her long-distance courtship with Freddy (“Freddy, My Love”). Meanwhile, the Burger Palace Boys are bust stealing hubcaps and teasing Kenickie about his new (used) car (“Greased Lightning”). 

Danny sees Sandy again and tries to apologize for his behavior. Head cheerleader Patty Simcox interrupts to prompt Sandy to join to squad and to tease Danny about his latest indiscretions (“Rydell Fight Song”). The kids take their newfangled portable radios for a rock and roll picnic in the park and plan how they will pair off at the upcoming school prom, while Roger shares his love for Jan and his favorite hobby (“Mooning”). Rizzo teases Danny for falling for a girl who resembles the excessively proper teenage ingenue, Sandra Dee (“Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee”). Sandy realizes that Danny is putting her off to be cool and wishes she had never met him. 

Then Danny suggests that Marty go out with Eugene, and she chases after him. Act I ends with a spirited pledge of friendship (“We Go Together”). 

At the High School Hop, everyone is dancing, except Sandy (“Shakin’ At the High School Hop”). She is home feeling sorry for herself (“It’s Raining on Prom Night”). Meanwhile, favorite radio DJ Vince Fontaine, is warming the kids up for the hand-jive dance contest. Kenickie dumps his blind date, Cha-Cha DiGregorio, and pairs up with Rizzo. Danny and Cha-Cha then proceed to win the dance contest (“Born to Hand Jive”). 

A few days later at the Burger Palace after school, a couple of the guys run into Frenchy, who flunked out of Rydell and has now dropped out of beauty school (“Beauty School Dropout”). Danny, who has taken up track in order to win back Sandy’s affections, does not know that Cha-Cha’s boyfriend’s gang has challenged the guys to a rumble. He is more concerned about patching things up with Sandy at the Twi-Light Drive-In, but he moves too fast for her, and she leaves (“All Alone at a Drive-In Movie”). A couple of days later, the “greasers” are having a party in Jan’s basement, as Doody and Roger sing “Rock ‘n’ Roll Party Queen.” Sandy wonders what she needs to do to fit in at Rydell (“Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee” – Reprise). 

The next time Sandy meets up with the Burger Palace Boys and the Pink ladies, she has transformed herself into a greaser’s dream date (“All Choked Up”). Rizzo and Kenickie reunite. All ends happily (“We Go Together” – Reprise). 

  • DANNY ZUKO – The leader of the Burger Palace Boys; good-looking, strong and confident, with an air of easy-going charm. 
  • SANDY DUMBROWSKI – New girl in town; sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, and innocent. 
  • BETTY RIZZO – Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable. 
  • FRENCHY – A dreamer; good-natured but not too smart, she is heavily made up, fussy about her appearance, particularly her hair. She can’t wait to finish high school so she can be a beautician. 
  • MARTY – The ‘beauty’ of the Pink Ladies; pretty and looks older than the other girls, but bretrays her real age when she opens her mouth. She tries to act sophisticated. 
  • JAN – Funny, loud, compulsive eater and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with the boys. 
  • DOODY – The youngest of the guys; small, boyish and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshiping attitude towards the other guys. He also plays the guitar. 
  • KENICKIE – The second in command of the Burger Palace Boys; tough-looking, tattooed, surly and avoids any show of softness. He has an offbeat sense of humor. 
  • SONNY LaTIERRI – A member of the Burger Palace Boys; funny Italian-American, he is a braggart and wheeler-dealer who thinks he’s a real lady-killer. 
  • ROGER – The anything-for-a-laugh stocky type of boy; a clown who enjoys winding people up, he is full of mischief and is always dreaming up half-baked schemes and ideas. 
  • VINCE FONTAINE – A typical ‘teen audience’ disc jockey; slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran ‘Greaser.’ 
  • CHA-CHA, a.k.a. Charlene DiGregorio – The best dancer at St. Bernadette’s; a loud mouth, she wins the dancing competition with Danny. 
  • EUGENE FLORCZYK – The class valecdictorian; physically awkward, with weak eyes and a high-pitched voice. He’s a typical ‘apple-polisher’ – both smug and pompous, but gullible. 
  • JOHNNY CASINO – All-American, rock-star “greaser” student at Rydell High, whose real name is Clarence. 
  • MISS LYNCH – A no-nonsense, serious, loud, English teacher. 
  • PATTY SIMCOX – A typical cheerleader; attractive, athletic, sure-of-herself, but can be given to bursts of disconcerting enthusiasm. She’s a bit of a pain and unpopular with the Pink Ladies, and can twirl a baton. 
  • THE PINK LADIES – The club-jacketed, gum-chewing, hip-swinging girls’ gang who hang around with the Burger Palace Boys. 
  • THE BURGER PALACE BOYS – A super-cool, DA-haired, hard-looking group of high school wheeler-dealers… or so they think.

The History Boys
Mar 19 @ 8:00 pm – Mar 28 @ 2:00 pm

Alan Bennett’s The History Boys is a cheeky look into the English education system in the 80s. Eight history students are pursuing an undergraduate place at Oxbridge.

Their headmaster is determined to see them break records and enlists a new teacher to coach the boys into intellectual shape. Seduced though they are by his promises, the boys are concerned that there is more to the pursuit of learning than exams and grades.

Warning: Suitable for mature audiences. Some strong language and sexual themes.

The Lion King Jr
Mar 20 @ 2:00 pm – Mar 28 @ 4:00 pm
The Lion King Jr

The Lion King Jr. tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colourful cast of characters including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa.

To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar. . The Lion King JR. features classic songs from the 1994 film such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.

 “The Lion King Jr reaches to our deepest emotions, touching on themes of love, loss, guilt and responsibility. The overarching message of the Circle of Life and our place in it is both humbling and empowering. Lebo M’s soaring African music, Elton John’s crowd pleasers and the exotic beauty of the African landscape all combine to make this show, to me, the most joyful and moving of the Disney productions.”

Merinda Gray Director Lion King Jr

Playing from the 20th March until the 28th of March at Warrandyte High School Theatre this wonderful cast of 50 children aged 8-15 bring this magical story to life.

So get ready to shake your groove thing as CLOC fluffs the feathers, sprinkles the sparkles, and polishes the platforms for an epic journey of ​self-discovery, mateship and acceptance.

Based on the iconic Oscar-winning 1994 Australian film, PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT is the hilarious adventure of three loud, proud and very different friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for the outback to put on the show of a lifetime when political correctness was just a thought bubble. Along the way, they strut, dance, sing, laugh, cry, and learn more about themselves – while singing up a storm to a non-stop parade of dance-floor classics including It’s Raining Men, Hot Stuff, I Will Survive, I Love the Nightlife, Go West, Colour My World, Boogie Wonderland, Shake Your Groove Thing and many more!
