‘Puberty Blues’ is an Australian classic, coming of age story following the lives of two teenage girls, Debbie and Sue, in the 70’s surfing scene. Their lives revolve around male surfers, panel vans, straight-leg Levi’s, skipping school, getting wasted and fitting in. Puberty Blues is a raw, disturbing and honest portrayal of adolescence in 1979.
*These are just stage ages
Danny (18) - Lead. Tough and headstrong. Extremely narcissistic, bogan and carries the show.
Darren (17) - Supporting. One of the boys. A narcissistic and mean character. Understudies the roles of Straccy and Johnno.

Auditions will be a one hour workshop in the evening of December 29th. Location and times will be sent to you via email, once you have expressed interest. If you cannot make this date, please let us know and we can arrange an alternate day to audition.

Book By Alain Boublil & Claude-Michel Schönberg
Directed By: JJ Geelen (Director)
Derek Walter (Musical Director)
One of the world’s most iconic and longest-running musicals, Les Misérables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a former convict who spends a lifetime seeking redemption. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and the aftermath of the French Revolution, this timeless story of intertwined destinies reveals the power of compassion and the quiet evil of indifference to human suffering. As Valjean’s quest for a new life carries him into Paris and to the barricades of the Student Revolution, he is hunted by Inspector Javert and the ghosts of his past. Amidst a battle for the soul of Paris, he discovers the true meaning of love and salvation. Performed in over 40 countries and 22 languages, and with a lush, swelling score that features such famed songs as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” and “Bring Him Home,” Les Mis brings Victor Hugo’s revolutionary novel blazingly to life.
JEAN VALJEAN is the hero of the show. It is his life journey that we follow. Jean Valjean is supposed to be stronger than other men, and so physically should appear robust. He should reasonably carry himself as mature and paternal. Valjean's ability to change is his greatest asset. the key to his character is his great humanity and compassion. Jean Valjean is a vocally demanding role.
Vocal Range: Low A to High A
JAVERT is the inspector who serves as antagonist to Jean Valjean. Javert is unswerving in his belief that men cannot change for the good. "Once a thief, always a thief" is his mantra. At first glance Javert might appear to be the villain of the story, but on closer examination it is clear that he is not an evil man. He is aware that in society some people achieve control through evil and others through power of the law. He is a dedicated policeman, with a profound sense of duty. Unlike Valjean he cannot change. His attitudes are rigid and unmovable. He is stern, forbidding and lacking in
compassion. Javert should be an actor who can convincingly stand up to Jean Valjean.
Vocal Range: Low F to High F sharp
FANTINE is the beautiful young girl who, abandoned by her lover, is left to fend for herself and her daughter Cosette. She is rejected by society and forced through circumstances to become a prostitute. She is a brave woman defeated by life, sustained by her love for her daughter and clinging to her dignity. Sick with consumption, we witness her descent through poverty, hunger, cold, loneliness and destitution to death. She is a noble character, whose life becomes is a series of terrible events that rob her of her pride, character, and ultimately her life.
Vocal Range: G flat (below middle C) to D
EPONINE is the daughter of the Thenardiers. She is a young girl who is streetwise and tough, but also sensitive and lonely. She is in love with Marius, knowing that he will never love her. She bravely follows Marius to the Barricades in the hope that they will die there together. Once grown up, Eponine moves with her family to Paris where they fall on hard times. Now poor, living hand to mouth, she survives by helping her father break the law. Eponine is a tragic character, hopelessly in love with Marius. She sings one of the most famous numbers in the show, "On My Own," and should therefore be an excellent singer with a contemporary edge to her voice and an excellent actress.
Vocal Range: F sharp (below middle C) to E
MARIUS is the handsome romantic hero of the story. He is impulsive, passionate, willful and headstrong. His moods change according to his circumstances. He is sweet and tender but also capable of great courage and compassion. In Act 1 Marius plays Romeo to Cosette's Juliet. Marius matures after the Cafe Song as a result of his experiences on the barricade. Marius should have a lovely, lyrical voice with a contemporary edge. Vocal Range: Low A to High A flat
COSETTE is the beautiful daughter of Fantine. She is strong willed and loving. She is an intelligent, inquiring, personable girl. She is not in any sense a "soppy" romantic heroine. Once adopted by Jean Valjean, Cosette lives a comfortable, if secluded life. She is challenging to Valjean, behaving always with imagination and dignity. She falls instantly in love with Marius, changing her world and her priorities.
Vocal Range: B flat (below middle C) to High C (2 octaves above middle C)
ENJOLRAS is the student leader. He is handsome,brave and daring, although youthful. He combines his revolutionary ideals with a strong charismatic leadership. He is described by Victor Hugo as "a thinker, and a man of action". On the barricade he physically and vocally should dominate everyone else. He should ooze with charisma, be a natural leader, be good looking, and have a very strong high baritone or a tenor voice. Remember, Enjolras must lead the students to fight and ultimately die. His death at the barricade is one of the dramatic highlights of the show.
Vocal Range: A to G (above middle C)
MADAME THÉNARDIER is the wife of Thenardier, Madame Thenardier is as "one" with Thenardier. Together they con the world as partners in crime. They were made for each other, although she complains about him, she loves him deeply. She is coarse and vulgar, unhappy in her existence without knowing why. She is romantic, greedy, stupid, evil and larger than life. She is mean and nasty to Young Cosette and able to improvise in nearly any situation.
Vocal Range: G sharp (below middle C) to D
THÉNARDIER is the true villain of Les Miserables. He is embodiment of evil. That said, he should also possess a wicked sense of humor. He delights in cheating, robbing, fraud and blackmail, relishing every aspect of them with glee. He is tough, greedy, brutal, stupid and creafty and yet irresistable. He hates society and blames it and everyone else for all his misfortune. thenardier is also the opportunist and realist of the show. He is a thief, a liar, a cheat, steals valuables from the dead with no remorse. He is also the comic relief of the production. However, his comedy is based in reality and shouldn't be too exaggerated. He is married to Madame Thenardier and father to Eponine and Gavroche
(although he has abandoned Gavroche to the streets of Paris.)
Vocal Range: C (below middle C) to G sharp (above middle C)
BISHOP OF DIGNE is a good man who saves Valjean with his compassion. Don't overlook the importance of this role. The Bishop of Digne's compassion carefully establishes the premise of the show by literally buying Jean Valjean's soul for God.
Vocal Range: Low A to High E
GAVROCHE is Thenardier's son. He is left to fend for himself and lives by his wits in the streets of Paris. His "arch enemy" is Javert the Policeman. He is brave and witty. Think a young Artful Dodger. Gavroche has a very dramatic death at the barricade.
Vocal Range: B (below middle C) to G
YOUNG COSETTE is the child of Fantine. She is the ward of the Thenardiers forced into child labor and sings "Castle On A Cloud." She is a trembling little creature, underfed, beaten by Madame Thenardier and bullied by Eponine. Mak sure Cosette is small and looks properly pathetic and yet warms the audience's heart who should be sympathetic to her plight.
Vocal Range: A (below middle C) to C
YOUNG EPONINE is the pampered daughter of the Thenardiers. She does little except enter the stage and taunt Little Cosette. The role requires no singing or speaking. She should be a smaller version of grown Eponine and resemble Eponine in appearance and features.
THE ENSEMBLE plays a key role in Les Miserables. There are many featured roles/solos throughout the whole show and all are key to driving the piece forward. Characters include: The Students, The Chain Gang, farmers, workers, prostitutes, gentlemen, robbers, and many others.

Written By: Jack Cummins
Directed By: Jack Cummins and Grace Boyle
All the teenagers from Clanstow are ready to celebrate Jason Davidson's party - a night of unsupervised fun with drinking, drugs and drama. But the event has its consequences when a girl is murdered near the bathroom. As everyone becomes a suspect, the intelligent and manipulative Nick Waters tries to frame someone else for the girl's murder. When his classmate Claire Warren notices this, she learns of Nick's past and realises he is a psychopath. She sets out to expose his devious ways and Nick turns to lies, coercion and murder to get rid of her, setting the stage for a disastrous showdown.
An original story written by Jack Cummins. The winner of State Theatre Company's Young Playwright Award and the debut production of Glassroom Theatre Company. Will be performed in the 2018 Adelaide Fringe.
Youth Roles Available:
CLAIRE WARREN: 17, best friend of Amelia. She starts off as a quiet and introverted girl but when she becomes enemies with Nick, she realises she needs to become stronger in order to stop him from framing Adrian.
AMELIA SIMPSON: 17, Claire’s best friend and Adrian’s girlfriend. She wears her emotions on her sleeve and isn’t afraid to be bold but after finding Olivia’s body, she becomes more withdrawn and easily manipulated by Nick
KYLE JAMES: 17, Lynn’s son, Nick’s best friend and Ellie’s boyfriend. Pure at heart and extremely likeable, he is a complete contrast to Nick, meaning he is very naïve to his best friend’s devious ways.
JASON DAVIDSON: 18, Olivia’s ex-boyfriend and Ellie’s brother. It’s at his party that Olivia is murdered. He wrestles with a guilt that relates to her death and he starts to become Nick’s puppet as he is desperate to stay out of jail. He is intense and can often get quite angry.

alice in wonderland
ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Aussie Kelpie Arts
Written by Lewis Carroll
Book by Josh Heaysman
Directed By: Natalie Hockley
Aussie Kelpie Arts retells Lewis Carroll's timeless classic, Alice in Wonderland, like you have never heard before. Featuring parodies of songs by popular artists, such as: The Who, Wiz Khalifa, Guns N' Roses and many more, it's a musical that puts a fresh new twist on a beloved tale.
With a mix of contemporary humour for all audiences and Carroll's quirky characters that everybody grew up with, it's Alice in Wonderland...but not as you know it.
Alice (f): A young, naïve girl. Endearing and curious
White Rabbit: Always in a rush and in a constant state of anxiety-induced panic.
Door / Dormouse: Puppets.* The Door is sassy and has a keen knowledge of things going on around him/her (4th wall breaks). The Dormouse is more often asleep than awake.
Mad Hatter: Irish accent. Fast talking and absolutely mad.
March Hare: Mad Hatter’s Partner-in-crime. Fast talking and absolutely mad.
Cheshire Cat (m): Straight, to the point and full of confidence. Is always right, even when wrong. Quite clearly a man in a cat costume (i.e. Wilfred)
Caterpillar: A stoner. Chilled out with a deep philosophy about the universe.
Flower 1 (m): Overtly masculine despite being a literal pansy. Is as harsh as granite.
Flower 2 (f): Kind hearted and comforting. Direct opposite of Flower 1
Queen of Hearts (f): Aggressive and self-centred. Loves to win and is cruel to any opposition.
King of Hearts (m): Timid and good hearted. Direct opposite of the Queen.
Gryphon: An old soul. Too engrossed in his/her own tale to take notice of surroundings and always willing to give advice whether it is needed or not.
Mock Turtle: Kind but with a meek constitution. Will burst into tears over the slightest inconvenience. No self-esteem.
Jabberwocky: Thick Southern US accent. A powerful presence with a light sense of humour and old fashion values.
Father (m): Critical of Alice. Demanding and his word is the law in his household. Played by Jabberwocky
Mother (f): Plays the victim in order to manipulate Alice. Played by March Hare
Sibling: Uses own success as the bar to judge all others against. Played by Mad Hatter.
+ A chorus of the King’s Guards

Are you on a casting panel or a theatre company committee and want to see some of Adelaide’s talent perform outside the confines of a show?
