Suncoast Repertory Theatre Inc and theatre s are calling an Open Audition Day for experienced actors only, on August 20 from 10am to 4pm, at NDS Actors, Cooroy. Both companies operate as not-for-profit co-operatives.
Simon Denver will run the day as a workshop requiring all prospective participants to attend the full day. Simon should need no introduction as he has been as a leading light in theatre for many years, as a writer, actor and director. The variety of Simon's work is as breathtaking as the depth of his knowledge. The day promises to be as valuable to all actors interested in exploring their craft, as to the directors looking for casts.
Be prepared for anything at this audition. There is no need to have a prepared piece as the day will be full of improvisation and games. Do bring your imagination and creativity (along with lunch, water, sensible shoes and loose clothing!). As a director, Simon works with the chemistry between actors and the emotion of the script to heighten the intensity of the theatre being created, whether it is comedy or drama. Just look at the last two productions of Suncoast Repertory Theatre - Bullshot Crummond (a cartoonish farce) and Macbeth (the great Shakespearean tragedy), to be followed with the "supreme comedy of (bad) manners", Hay Fever by Noel Coward.
Most recently theatre s has produced The Love List, King of the Ice Cream Mountain and Cosi. Previous plays include Shirley Valentine, Oleanna, Steaming, The diary of frank Annie and Keep Everything You Love.
Simon is also hoping to move into TV/film over the coming months, so there will be a camera at the audition to capture the relationship of the actors with the camera.
Between the two companies, casts are being sort for the following productions over the next 18 months:
Suncoast Repertory Theatre Inc:
Hay Fever by Noel Coward, performances in October 2006
Job's Right by Brett Klease, performances in 2007

Auditions will be at NDS Actors, 16 Jarrah St, Cooroy. Please register your intention to attend by phoning Stephen Moore on 5449 2625.
