AROUND AUSTRALIAN THEATRES

Cast Announcement: Chess

Australian stars of musical theatre Silvie Paladino and David Harris will perform in The Very Popular Theatre Company’s production of Chess. 

Chess turns a distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and East-West political intrigue. The principal pawns form a love triangle: the loutish American Grandmaster Freddie (un cast), the earnest Russian champion; Anatoly (Harris) and the Hungarian-American female chess second; Florence (Paladino) who arrives at the international championships with the American but falls for the Russian.

From Tyrol to Thailand the players, lovers, politicians, CIA and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score. Several numbers, including “One Night in Bangkok” and “I Know Him So Well”, are international hits.

The show is open now for auditions with information available at https://form.jotform.co/90822934456867.
