Metamorphoses

Are you interested in being a part of Metamorphoses at GCLT?

Auditions will be held at on Saturday 27 March, 2021 at Gold Coast Little Theatre, 21a Scarborough Street, Southport.

The season runs from 18 June – 10 July, 2021. Metamorphoses is directed by Bradley Chapman.

What is Metamorphoses?

Called by Time the “theatre event of the year,” Mary Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses brings Ovid’s tales to stunning visual life. Set in and around a large pool of water onstage, Metamorphoses juxtaposes the ancient and the contemporary in both language and image to reflect the variety and persistence of narrative in the face of inevitable change.

Metamorphoses explores classic Greek and Roman myths that are linked by the theme of transformation. These myths include Eros & Psyche, Orpheus and Eurydice, and the tale of King Midas, to name a few.

What roles are available?

Metamorphoses is not written or staged in a traditional way, so it is necessary to take a slightly different approach to casting.

The play features over 50 characters, including many well-known figures of mythology such as (Zeus, Aphrodite, Hades, Orpheus, Persephone, etc). Due to the fluid nature of the piece, and the vignette style in which these roles materialise, all performers will be required to create the ensemble from which the various characters will emerge. All roles are roughly the same size.

This means we are seeking actors who are willing to play a range of roles, rather than specifying a desired role before your audition (in your audition you will be invited to share the kind of role you are interested in).

We also intend for our actors to become creators and collaborators in the overall vision of the production, so we are keen to meet with performers who are willing to make their creative voice heard.

Our inclusive vision for this production means that all roles are open to all performers. We are seeking actors who can deliver the essence of each character, so these roles are not bound by traditional physical requirements. We encourage all actors to audition regardless of gender, appearance, ethnicity, racial background or lived experience of disability.

What should I prepare for my audition?

Upon registering to audition, you will be issued with a time between 10am and 4pm. You will need to prepare a monologue that demonstrates your ability to perform in the style of heightened realism. Any monologue will do, but Shakespeare and Greek pieces lend themselves well to this style.

This is all you need to prepare. In your audition, you may be asked to deliver sections of your monologue more than once.

When do we rehearse?

Rehearsals will take place three times a week, including two weeknights and one weekend afternoon. Not all cast will be required for every rehearsal. Please ensure you list any unavailability on your audition registration form.
