The Producers

Based on the 1968 film, Mel Brooks musical The Producers is a laugh-out-loud,
outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its 2001 debut. It ran
for more than 6 years on Broadway and won an un-precedented 12 Tony Awards, a
record that still stands today.

Fading Broadway producer Max Bialystock is desperate to get to the top of his
profession again, and he finds an unlikely ally in mousey accountant Leo Bloom, who
hypothesises that one could make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit.
Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever to hit Broadway, with the
worst script, the worst director, and the worst cast they can find; the catch is that they
will raise two million dollars to finance the show, take the money and head to Rio when
the show inevitably closes after just one performance. Too bad for Bialystock and Bloom
that, against all odds, the show is a total hit!

With dozens of big and bit parts alike, no shortage of show-stopping musical numbers,
and Brooks’ signature humour keeping audiences in stitches, The Producers is definitely
far from a flop.

Theatre: 9758 3964

5 Male (20’s – 60’s)

Leading Ladies Audition

 

From the comic genius of Ken Ludwig, this hilarious comedy set in the 50’s finds two English Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, so down on their luck that they are performing “Scenes from Shakespeare” on the Moose Lodge circuit in the Amish country of Pennsylvania. When they hear that an old lady in York, PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out that the relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Romantic entanglements abound, disguises, deception, and plot twists abound in this side-splitting farce.

 

The ages listed for the characters are those actually stated or suggested in the script, however, actors auditioning for these roles can be younger or older than the stated age. For many of the characters, their age in relation to that of the other characters is more important than any specific chronological age.

Actors reading for the roles of Leo / Maxine and Jack/ Stephanie will be asked to speak in British accents for both their male and female roles and show off their best Shakespearean voice as well. I plan to have a dialect coach on the team.

While all roles are open to all regardless of race or ethnicity, several characters are blood relatives, and as such must be similar in appearance.

Leo Clark / Maxine – (30s or older) Clean shaven, Shakespearean actor (English accent) possessing real talent, and a clever, quick-on-his-feet thinker, Leo contrives the scheme and directs it for the most part, posing as Maxine. When he falls in love with Meg, his skills are tested to their limits.

Jack Gable/ Stephanie – (30s or older) Clean shaven Shakespearean actor (English accent) of some talent as well. A reluctant partner in crime with Leo… more sincere and not so clever or conniving as Leo, who does know how to push Leo’s buttons. His female persona is that of Stephanie.

Meg Snider – (20s to early 30s) A bright, vivacious young woman (in line for the other 1/3 of Florence’s fortune) who loves the theatre and secretly dreams to experience far more of the world than York can possibly offer, but apparently resigned to settle for less as she has agreed to marry Duncan, an older, stuffy minister.

Duncan Wooley – (40s) A local minister, engaged but substantially older then Meg. A good man at heart, set in his ways and anxious to control Meg’s inheritance money. He suspects that Leo and Jack are frauds and would like nothing more than to expose them as such.

     Audrey – (20s or early 30s) A sexy, attractive young woman, brighter than she appears to be at times. Ability to roller skate is a plus but not required.

Chief Moose/ Doc Meyers – (40-50’s) Florence’s doctor and family friend and father of Butch. Doc is basically a genuine guy who married for love but encourages his son to marry into money. At some point, he misperceives that Stephanie (Jack) is in love with him.

Butch Meyers – (20s to early 30s) Doc’s stocky (played high school football) son who, notwithstanding his dad’s advice, is in love with Audrey. He is honest and sincere although a bit slow-witted at times.

          Florence Snider – (60s or older) A kind but crusty old lady with terrible eyesight but a sharp mind and tongue

Synopsis:

The year is 1962 and the world is worrying about the Cuban missile crisis, except for Lewis, a youth on the cusp of manhood, growing up in a Melbourne housing commission suburb. He is preoccupied with flying saucers, much to the disgust of his friend Brian who can think only of losing his virginity.

The play centres on relationships, especially the relationship between 14 year old Lewis and 14 year old Dulcie. It is through Dulcie that Lewis begins to understand that the struggle to be adult is the struggle to understand the world around him.

Summer of the Aliens is a vivid and amusing evocation of a family and a neighbourhood whose increasingly strange behaviour Lewis is forced to interpret in the only way he can… the aliens must be among us!

The music of Elvis comes alive in All Shook Up. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up follows a small Midwestern town that is thrown into a frenzy with the arrival of Chad, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who rides from town to town with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet, and a song in his heart. Repressed by their conservative mayor, the town begins to come alive once more under Chad’s influence. Lovers meet, woo, pursue, and more, all in one zany night that will change the town forever. All Shook Up is a rocking, heartwarming tale about following dreams, opening up to love, and the power of music.

Please come prepared with two contrasting songs.

The music of Elvis comes alive in All Shook Up. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up follows a small Midwestern town that is thrown into a frenzy with the arrival of Chad, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who rides from town to town with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet, and a song in his heart. Repressed by their conservative mayor, the town begins to come alive once more under Chad’s influence. Lovers meet, woo, pursue, and more, all in one zany night that will change the town forever. All Shook Up is a rocking, heartwarming tale about following dreams, opening up to love, and the power of music.

Please come prepared with two contrasting songs.
Children 10 and under only need one song
Please bring either sheet music for our pianist to play, or a recorded accompaniment (via phone or USB).

Anyone auditioning for a role above, please make an individual audition booking. If you are auditioning for a chorus role only, you must attend our group audition on Sunday June 30 at 1.30pm. Please make sure to book in for this.

A dance audition will follow this at 2pm. Everyone who auditions on both Thursday and Sunday MUST attend this. Dance auditions will finish at 2.45pm with some auditionees asked to stay for an advanced dance audition until 3.15pm.

Rehearsals will be Thursday afternoons/evenings and Sunday afternoons from July 18th.

Performances will be held at the Wyndham Cultural Centre on October 12th (at 7.30pm) and 13th (at 2pm)

Any questions feel free to contact us via the Facebook page, or email us on [email protected]com.au
