Audition Call – Lismore Theatre Company
Director Daniel Sassi is calling for actors to audition for roles in the upcoming production of Neighbourhood Watch by Lally Katz to be staged from May 28-June 6 at Rochdale Goonellabah.
Auditions are on Wednesday 24 February 6pm and Saturday 27 February at 10am at Rochdale Theatre.
This Australian play Neighbourhood Watch takes place in the year between Kevin Rudd’s election as PM and Barack Obama’s as US President.
We meet Catherine, a young woman stuck in suburbia, waiting for her life to change as much as the world around her is. She meets her neighbour Ana, an elderly Hungarian immigrant carrying the weight of the twentieth century on her shoulders.
Neighbourhood Watch is a magical comedy about hope, death and pets. It’s a classic odd-couple story: opposites attract, and from each other the characters gain a new understanding of themselves and the world around them.
