Synopsis :
Citysong is a play for voices, a lyrical ode to modern day life in Dublin. The play is a chorus of voices showing us three generations of a Dublin family on one day - and it turns out one day holds the entire past.

There are teen discos, late night taxis, home nurses, teens, babies, immigrants, seagulls , bars etc.

Citysong is intimate and sweeping, cerebral and compassionate, and it’s also joyous and ridiculous. It’s a modern day Dublin’s Under Milk Wood which requires an ensemble cast of 6 actors, who will inhabit a multitude of different characters throughout the play, all linked by the narrator who will guide us all through Dublin’s fair city.

This production will be a World Amateur & Australian Premiere.

 

Characters :

A multitude! All played by a team of 6 actors.

Final selection would ideally be a bit of a mix of gender, age, ethnicity.

 

Requirements :

The ability to do a good Irish accent is an absolute must, as is the ability to quickly take on diverse characters including teens, gossips, old lady and her younger self, middle aged men, anxious mums and more, regardless of gender. There will be quite a bit of movement, probably on different levels - however, if you have a physical disability, as long as you can do the accent and characters, the director is very happy to have a conversation.

 

Williamstown Little Theatre requires that all those who work with us – including cast – must be able to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19, or provide an appropriate medical exemption. Please ensure you have your proof of vaccination certificate or exemption with you when you come to the audition.

 

Additional Information :

Rehearsals will be held at Williamstown Little Theatre 2 evenings and a Sunday each week. It is a complex play so this commitment is required.

 

Please bring to your audition a completed audition form downloaded from this page, together with a non-returnable headshot (studio shot not necessary).
