Audition Notice

The Real Housewives of Perth, the musical. Directed by Helen Smolders, Musical Director Shaun Davis. Dreaming to be a DIVA?! Come and be a part of this “Uproarious smash hit!” Can you be “Funny, cute, catty and comical?” or perhaps “beautiful, bitchy, and back-stabbing!” then this is the musical for you!
This new musical, written by Molly Bell is presented by Wanneroo Rep at The Limelight Theatre, playing March 14th – 24th 2019. The director is auditioning for all six roles (5F, 1M) on Saturday 15th December at Wanneroo Secondary College (11am – 3pm). Auditionees to prepare one song (please bring own backing track) and a short monologue suitable for the role applied for. Please reserve your audition slot by email: helar06@bigpond.com  Character breakdown as follows: Joanne Johnson: Female, 30s, the perfect wife who seemingly has it all, a put-together, type-A personality — nothing in her purse is out of place. Joanne is named “Head Housewife” under unusual circumstances and is thrown to the wolves by the other wives when her husband Anderson is indicted for fraud. She crawls her way back to the top as she learns how to change her life and become more like a “real” Real Housewife.

Babette Bellini: Female, 30s, Joanne’s best friend/frenemy, is desperately trying to hold onto her marriage to real estate mogul Royce Bellini, who is cheating on her with an “unspecified party” (who we learn is another of our wives). Her friendship with Joanne is almost destroyed by jealousy and rivalry, and their journey toward their patch-up is the heart of the show.

Beezus Horowitz: Female, 49-55, the oldest of the wives, trying to hold onto her youth, elegance, and wealth. Even though she doesn’t like it, she acts as the matriarch of the group. When Joanne has troubles, Beezus stirs the water as only she can to create mayhem and chaos.

Lulu Delecante: Female, mid-40s, the mysterious wife with a mysterious sort of English accent. She is a Sultana, and despite her divorce from the Sultan, she still uses the title, which she uses to hide a dire secret from the rest of the wives. Always first to recommend a pharmaceutical pick-me-up, Lulu helps steer Joanne through her early rocky period with the other wives.

Penny Quinoa St. Simone: Female, 30, cute and spirited, this wife is a follower, married to Theodore St. Simone (of questionable sexuality). Penny is both quick-and-dim-witted, a pleaser, and sells a 10-day cleanse called “Babylicious.”

Man: Male, 30s-early 40s, plays all the men in the show: Anderson Johnson, Royce Bellini, Theo St. Simone, a swishy hairdresser, a bedazzling TV host, a snooty shoe salesman, a mysterious gypsy, and so much more. Must be very adept at multiple characters and quick changes.

The Envelope Please

The final show for 2018 at the Limelight Theatre will be a celebration of Academy Award winning songs, devised and directed by Gillian Binks, “The Envelope Please” is a phrase which reminds us of the excitement of the Academy Awards, arguably one of the most popular entertainment awards ceremonies in the world. In 1934 a new category was introduced and an Oscar was awarded to the Best Original Song featured in a film. The movies weren’t always winners but the songs that came from them were often fabulous little pieces of history, many of which have become classics. We will present, in song and dance, numbers from “Lullaby of Broadway” and “Over the Rainbow” in the 30’s to “Beauty and the Beast” and “Let it Go”.
