Full-time Actor in FAULTY TALES

at Boxboards Theatre New South Wales


Boxboards Theatre is looking for a dynamic actor to play the role of Manwell in our Faulty Tales show. The first performances will be staged at the Waldorf Leura Gardens Resort, Leura during Yulefest (20th June - 8th August.) This is a dinner Theatre format, though the successful actor will be employed to perform in other performances of the show as they are booked. This is a paid position.

Rehearsals will be held between March and June and will be on Monday nights.

Faulty Tales (TM) is Boxboard's parody of the world's most infamous BBC television show. I refer to 'Faulties' as the 'Mousetrap of the Mountains' as it has been entertaining packed audiences in the mountains, and elsewhere, for over 18 years! It is a show most typically performed as Dinner Theatre, but the show is performed in a range of formats and venues. The show is scripted, however, there is a significant improvisational component. The actor would need to be flexible and inventive.

Manwell is the loveable, innocent yet inept immigrant Spanish waiter of the Hotel. He is a comic character who is very physical. He derives from the Zanni of Commedia del Arte.

Manwell will most likely be played by an actor of between 30-40 years of age, though actors outside this range will certainly be considered.

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS: Please familiarise yourself with the show and character. The focus of Boxboards is mimicry -your ability to recreate recognisable vocal and physical characteristics of the character. If you apply for an audition you will be sent a short script to perform on the day. There will also be an improvisation element to the audition which will, obviously, be revealed on the day!

The audition will be conducted in a supportive and good humoured atmosphere.

Boxboards Theatre encourages and expects all performers display the qualities of professionalism, respect and generosity.

AUDITION DATE: Saturday 31st January. Audition times will be allocated between 10.00am- 4.00pm.

AUDITION VENUE: The audition will be held at the Waldorf Leura Gardens Resort, Fitzroy St Leura.

HOW TO SECURE AN AUDITION: Please email the Artistic Director, Matthew Barry, at... with the words 'Faulty Tales Audition' in the title of the email.
