CONCEPT
We’re looking at creating a dynamic, amusing and entertaining interpretation of Richard Tulloch's play adaption of Robin Klein's classic 'Hating Alison Ashley'. This production will use adult actors with the ability to play a Year 6 age range in a melodramatic manner to engage school and adult audiences. Some roles will be doubled.
The play will be performed in 100 minutes with no intermission.

We aim to cast inclusively, and so encourage actors of all ages, genders and ethnicities to audition for the production.

Our character breakdown may change based on the quality and calibre of auditions, but currently we are looking for eight actors to play the following roles.
ERICA YURKEN
