Sweet Road – Auditions

Auditions for “Sweet Road”

The following pieces will be used for Auditions for “Sweet Road” to be held on Sunday 11 December at 2.00pm at Javeenbah Theatre.

Please note that it may not be necessary to use the entire piece on each occasion.

I am also providing a short description of each character to be auditioned.

The very small roles of the Mechanic, Phone Caller and Motel Receptionist will be played by the SM and ASM and so will not be open for audition.

 

Enquiries may be made to the Director, Gaye Gay, on 0407 537 044 or grantandgaye@bigpond.com
