Auditions

Andy Griffiths’ Just Macbeth!

Audition Date: Tuesday July 22

Location: Pavilion Theatre

Time: doors open at 7.30 for an 8.00pm start

Production dates: Nov 21 to Dec 13

This play has witches, ghosts, time travel, ruthless tyrants, angry garden gnomes, marshmallows and whizz fizz. Andy Griffiths’ Just MacBeth! Is a really silly version of Shakespeare’s great big gory tragedy written specifically for the young and the young at heart.

The play requires actors with flexibility, particularly as three of them are required to play multiple parts. All actors need to be physically capable, enjoy eating whizz fizz and be willing to play the fool. If you are interested in Macbeth you ,must be able to eat marshmallows – this is a legitimate and non-negotiable requirement. The actors need wild imaginations as some of the script is literally in pictures, which we will interpret and imagine into existence!

Lisa / Lady Macbeth
