AUDITIONS
14 MAY at 2.00pm
Napier Repertory Theatre
76 McGrath Street, Napier
This exciting piece of theatre will be our premiere Studio Production. It has as its theme Restorative
Justice. A child's life has been ended by a joy-rider. Four years on, the parents and the joy-rider meet.
The play will be directed by Mason Price with Trevor Rose in the role of associate producer.
Playing dates are 8-12 August 2017.
CAST:
Leon 19 year old. Leon was driving the car that killed the child. Comes from a poor background.
Petra late 30s-early 40s. Petra is the child's mother and is a journalist.
Jimmy late 30s-early 40s. Jimmy is the child's father and is a teacher.
Mr E. any age. Prison art teacher. Mature, matter of fact. Two small scenes
Leon's Mother 50ish. Coarse, vulgar woman with language to match. Very short scene and I see the
person playing this role as also being the production's Stage Manager.
Actors must be prepared to widen and enhance the skills they bring to the production. Rehearsals,
which will commence in June, will concentrate on in depth script interpretation as this play relies on
an audience seeing the subtle changes of emotions and beliefs each character experiences.
It is essential that the play is read prior to auditioning.
In accordance with the aims of our Studio Productions the following roles are also available
Trainee Director
Will work with Mason and Trevor to observe and learn the requirements of bringing a production to
performance.
Trainee Lighting and Sound
Will work with Peter Hurley to learn the intricacies of lighting and sound design. Would also need to
be available to operate these systems during performance.
Musician and Composer
This production will use a musician who is able to compose a short piece of music as the theme for
the play. The musician would then be required to perform this piece live at each performance. For
practical reasons the instrument used would need to be fairly portable, e.g. guitar, violin, flute
Anyone interested in reading the script or participating in the production or with any questions is
encouraged to contact Mason.
