Mamma Mia!

BABIRRA MUSIC THEATRE Inc.
We are excited to announce auditions for our May/June 2020 production of:
MAMMA MIA

The ultimate feel-good musical, Mamma Mia is a celebration of love, laughter, family and friendship,
not to mention a tribute to the biggest pop band of the 70s, ABBA. Easy to see why it has become
one of the most popular musicals of all time, seen by over 60 million people around the world.
Set on a Greek Island, Mamma Mia follows the story of Sophie as she tries to discover the identity of
her father by inviting three of her mother’s ex-boyfriends to her wedding.

There are not many musicals that have such a host of wonderful lead and supporting roles for men
and women in their 40s and 50s playing alongside a large group of youthful, energetic performers.
For the roles of Donna (Sophie’s mother), her two best friends and the three potential fathers,
we are looking for character actors with strong comedic timing who can belt out a tune and move
well. For Sophie, Sky and their friends who make up the ensemble, we want energetic performers
who are a mix of strong singer-dancers and dancer-singers.

The uniting factor on stage will be the energy, spirit and delight that is magically contained in the
music of ABBA, and our objective is to package up that joy and deliver it to the audience.
Welcome to your audition for Babirra’s production of Mamma Mia.

Electric Dreams

Music Theatre Melbourne is excited and proud to announce the first full showing of a new stage production, ELECTRIC DREAMS The Musical, at the Gasworks Theatre, Albert Park, from November 20 to 24;

Written by DREW LANE the story takes you back to the wild innocence of 1984, combining a love triangle (boy-girl-computer) with a brilliantly catchy score that features 22 original songs.

It’s 1984.  The year of ‘Gremlins’ and ‘Ghostbusters’, string vests and shoulder pads. The year George Orwell chose as the title for his apocalyptic novel about Big Brother.  The year that Rusty Lemorande created his iconic cult movie called ‘Electric Dreams’, with a title song that made everybody sing along …

The stellar cast is headed by TOM GREEN as Miles (Miss Saigon; Gladys Moncrieff Award; The Project) who finds a brave new world of love and technology, and MADELEINE FEATHERBY (Paris: A Rock Odyssey; Follies; LaTraviata), as Madeleine, girl next door and cellist extraordinaire.  It also features STEPHEN MAHY (Miss Saigon; Jersey Boys; Mamma Mia; Crossroads!) as Miles’ Casanovan best pal, and ANGELA SCUNDI (Rocky Horror Show; Thoroughly Modern Millie; Tick Tick Boom), as Madeleine’s, the thoroughly modern Millie.  OWEN JAMES plays Edgar, the computer with human aspirations. SOPHIE LOUGHRAN, ZAK BROWN, ANTHONY SCUNDI, COURTNEY SMYTH and AIDAN NIARROS complete an ensemble that every new musical would love to have.

The (Other) Great American Songbook

The (Other) Great American Songbook

Robyn Archer AO FAHA completes her trilogy of performances at City Recital Hall this November.

Following the success of Que Reste T’il and Dancing on the Volcano, comes The (Other) Great American Songbook, which offers a different portrait of America over time through song, covering everything from the Civil War and The Great Depression to many of its citizens’ favourite vices. Accompanied by longtime colleagues Michael Morley (piano) and George Butrumlis (accordion), Robyn (vocals and guitar) delights with an epic range of music by Stephen Foster, Rodgers and Hart, Bob Dylan, Pink and the odd Broadway hit.

Robyn Archer says of the show “I’ve been aware for so many years of so many different versions of The Great American Songbook: wonderful songs, but they all come from the world of entertainment and rarely reflect the complexity of American life.
“I decided to create a program of songs from the other side” Robyn continues “songs that reflected decades of strong dissident voices, and on the lighter side the songs about human vices, reflecting a more authentic span of the American character. Michael, George and I have so much fun performing this program and it shows you can tackle some of the darker sides of life with just as much verve and fun and laughter as those that try to pretend that life is always a bed of roses and romance”

Robyn shows no sign of slowing down, and continues to deliver her punchy, thoughtful and most of all, her musically outstanding vocal range to audiences all over the country.
“Robyn Archer is a colossus on the Australian stage…Her choice of songs reflects not only a deep knowledge and understanding of her subject matter but also a desire to impose, subtly, some of her political views about the world.” – RAW on Adelaide Cabaret Festival

Synopsis:

Australian Premier production.

Based on the 1997 British film of the same name, this non-musical version is also set in Sheffield, UK. Six unemployed, working class men decide to do a one-time-only striptease to outdo a touring male strip show and make some desperately needed money.  But The Full Monty is not really about stripping; it’s a hilarious and heart-warming story about self-worth, dignity, honesty, authenticity and courage, as these men confront their fears of inadequacy, their insecurities and their failure to provide for their families.  And it’s about the women in their lives who love them and cheer them on.

 

Casting note:

*If you are auditioning for Gaz, Dave, Gerald, Lomper, Horse, or Guy, you need to be comfortable enough to perform on stage in your underwear. Will we go The Full Monty? Auditionees for these roles should be prepared to do so and agree to such to be considered for these roles. Trust is a key word for our production – you will be taken care of respectfully and our final moment will be powerful. You will not need to undress at auditions.

With the exception of Nathan, all actors auditioning must be 18+ by the time rehearsals begin.

 

Characters:

 

GAZ * 30-40. An unemployed steel worker. A complex emotional character with serious heart and charisma, and genuine tenderness for his son – a regular guy. A bit rough around the edges but with a lot of depth to his character. A regular guy who wants to do right by his son.

 

DAVE * 30-40. An unemployed steel worker. He struggles with unemployment and its effect on his marriage. A lovable, good-natured soul, with body weight and self-esteem issues. Having a very hard time adjusting to his stay-home-husband status. Must be comfortable enough with your belly to proudly wield it in all its glory.

 

GERALD * 35-65. An unemployed steel works supervisor. He is a doting, prideful husband who is determined to keep his wife in upper middle class luxury – in spite of 6 months of secret unemployment. Aloof at first, his dance skills are what finally, and arduously, brings the group’s dancing alive. Goes along with Jerry’s plan in order to keep up his cover.

 

LOMPER * 25-40. Security guard for abandoned steel mill. Still lives at home and cares for his elderly mother. Lonely, quiet, awkward and uncertain. He enters the show in a dark way but grows in confidence as his new friends help him along, and develops feelings for Guy.

 

HORSE * 50+. Originally cast as ethnically/racially different from the other Monty men. Seemingly, his “break-dancing” days are over… until he breaks out. Gentle demeanour and excellent mover with great dead-pan comedy.

 

GUY * 25-40. The embodiment of virile male potential. Confident, outspoken and aware of his own attractiveness. Develops feelings for Lomper.

 

NATHAN “10 years old going on forty”. Can be an older/teen actor with playing age approx. 8-12 years. Gaz’s young son. Nathan can be stoic, sincere, and charming, but ultimately real as he deals with his parents’ custody battle. Hangs around most of the Monty Men’s rehearsals so he witnesses many adult things. Has one swear word. Please note – Parents should familiarise themselves with the script and its content before booking an audition for their child.

 

ALAN & OTHERS – Alan is the manager of the Bar where the Monty Men perform. Will also play other roles.

 

BARRY & OTHERS – Barry is Mandy’s fiancée; the opposite of Gaz– clean-cut, well-off. Will also play Brian the Job Club Manager and other roles.

 

ALF & OTHERS – Alf is an unemployed man who attends the Job Club with the Monty Men. Will also play other roles.

 

TERRY & OTHERS – Terry is an unemployed man who attends the Job Club with the Monty Men. Will also play other roles.

 

MANDY & OTHERS  – 30-40. Gaz’s estranged wife and Barry’s fiancée. In some ways Mandy has become a realist. She earnestly wants Jerry to be an active parent for Nathan, but wrestles with strong reservations about his character and her own lingering feelings for him. Will also play other roles.

 

JEAN & OTHERS  – 30-40. A warm, down-to-earth soul that isn’t afraid to kick up her heels. Believes in hard work and hard play. Her reality comes in dealing with her hubby’s struggles and trying to hold her marriage together. Will also play Guy’s sister Michelle and other roles.

 

LINDA & OTHERS – 30-60. Married to Gerald. Charming and energetic, She has a taste for the finer things but in reality, the finest thing in her eyes is Gerald. Flamboyant on the surface, her love and understanding are real. Classy, but easily one of the girls. Ideally able to dance (foxtrot, etc). Will also play Jean’s friend Bee and other roles.

 

SHARON & OTHERS – 30-40. Jean’s friend. Out for a good time and ultimately supportive of the men and their goal. Will also play other roles.

 

Other information:

Rehearsals will be Tuesday & Thursday Evenings and Sunday late afternoons/evenings.

Rehearsals will begin before Christmas, with a break for Christmas/New Year, then resume in early January.
