Audition for “Trivial Pursuits”

Audition for “Trivial Pursuits”

KADS Theatre’s third performance season is the acerbic comedy Trivial Pursuits, written by Frank Vickery and directed by Anita Bound.

The season runs from 17 July to 3 August and rehearsals will be on weeknights to be agreed between the director and cast. There are ten great roles for both men and women 20 years – 50 years+.

SYNOPSIS: A summer evening’s BBQ is the setting for a meeting of the Trealaw and District Operatic Society. Next season’s play is to be announced by Nick, the Society’s Business Manager, who has promised a different show and the plum role to four different people. As the evening progresses each character’s foibles and talents are revealed. The complex relationships between players emerge as moments of pure slapstick and farce, alternate with real drama and pathos.

CAST (With stage ages – approximations only)
NICK – the society’s business manager who selects the shows 30+
JOYCE – once talented and well meaning, now a vindictive drunk 50+
TEDDY – sweet and strident, gay, camp and bitchy, 30-40
