AUDITIONS are now open for our August production of ‘Così’ by Louis Nowra. Directed by Stephen Carr
Contact Stephen via messenger to book an audition time. Audition spots will be done in pairs.
‘Così’ is an Australian classic, set in an old burnt-out theatre within the gates of a 1970’s mental institute. A cast of patients are brought together by Mozart’s Italian Opera ‘Così Fan Tutte’, yet no one can sing and no one speaks Italian.
This play is a mixture of the external world and the inside of the mind. It includes a hilarious and gripping plot and a highly dynamic character list that the audience will fall in love with
Auditions will be at the Roleystone Guide Hall (the building behind 46 Jarrah Rd if you are looking at google maps)

** Please note the roles of Lewis and Roy have already been cast**
Lucy (Female, 20s)
Girlfriend and roommate of Lewis. She has an affair with Nick who shares similar beliefs – that the Vietnam War protest is more important than anything else. Lucy cannot understand why Lewis is directing a play about love when thousands are dying in the war.
Julie (Female, 20s)
A patient addicted to illicit drugs. She is Lewis’s love interest in the play and is a catalyst for Lewis and Lucy’s deteriorating relationship. She believes that men have double standards, since women are routinely targeted for their infidelity while men are also unfaithful to their partners.
Note: There is a kiss between Lewis & Julie
Nick(Male, 20s)
An experienced student director, roommate and friend of Lewis. He promises to help Lewis with Così Fan Tutte however, he quickly breaks this vow in order to spend time with Lucy. Lewis later discovers that Lucy and Nick are having an affair. Nick is heavily involved in the moratorium, a protest against the Vietnam War.
Zac (Male, open)
A patient who takes the part of musician for Così Fan Tutte. He prefers to play Wagner over Mozart, which sparks a dispute between himself and Roy. Zac is passionate about music and plays the piano and the piano accordion (it is not required that the actor can actually play these).
Justin or Justine (30+)
A social worker who organised the patients from the mental institution to be a part of the theatre project. Patronizing towards the patients, he represents society’s view on the mentally ill.
Doug (Male, 20s-30s)
A patient who was sent to the mental institution as a result of burning his mother’s cats and home. He is a pyromaniac – someone who gains satisfaction from deliberately starting fires. He appears to light fires quite frequently, once in the theatre toilets and once outside the theatre. He also supports free love and is keen on the potential violence that may transpire at the moratorium.
Cherry (Female, 20s-40s)
A patient who has an abusive personality and carries a flick knife with her. She has a violent relationship with Doug, as she is always ordering him to ‘go burn a cat.’ She is overprotective of Lewis, on whom she has a crush. As a form of affection, she is constantly feeding him with food in order to ‘fatten’ him up.
Note: There is a kiss between Lewis & Cherry
Ruth (Female, 30s-40s)
A patient suffering from an obsessive disorder. Throughout the play, she focuses on minor issues such as having real or fake coffee on set, and the number of steps she needs to take to reach her position on stage.
Henry (Male, 40s-50s)
A shy patient, a damaged soul, who rarely speaks and avoids eye contact with others. A former lawyer, he now suffers from a disability with his left arm. However, it is shown to be a false disability when he switches his ‘bad arm’ from left to right. He is subservient to others, especially Roy. Towards the end of the play however, he overcomes his timidity to defend Lewis.
Note: Henry has a bad stutter.
