Sunday in the Park with George

Theatre People audition submission

UMMTA is proud to present Stephen Sondheim’s


5th – 13th May

About the show

Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE captures two moments in time revolving around one picture frame.

SUNDAY follows painter Georges Seurat in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Consumed by creative hunger and his need to “finish the hat”, Seurat’s artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes, not realising that his actions will reverberate over the next one hundred years.

From the award–winning duo behind Into the Woods, this stunning masterpiece merges past and present into beautiful, poignant truths about life, love and the creation of art.


Solo auditions will be held 20th – 22nd February, with callbacks on Sunday 26th February. Full information on audition requirements and how to book will be available from Sunday 12th February on our website (www.ummta.org) and on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ummtatheatre).

We will consider all applications equally regardless of your gender, race, religion, sexuality, age, or ability. The only prerequisites are your passion and willingness to work hard on creating a beautiful show.

Please note you are not required to be a student of the University of Melbourne to audition.
