out of sight, out of murder
OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MURDER
TEA TREE PLAYERS
Written By: Fred Carmichael
Directed By: Lilly Dolman
Peter has come to a lovely old house to finish a play, a murder story in a place where another author had been murdered years before. A weird electrical storm causes a confused and chaotic state and his characters come to life. There is the lovely ingénue, the trusty butler, a feisty character woman, a dauntless hero, a fascinating ’other woman’ and a wily lawyer waiting for midnight to read the will. Peter loses control of his characters and after an attempted murder with him as the intended victim, other murders occur and events follow a typical thriller to a hair raising climax, until all is solved ingeniously with romance, suspense and cosmic wit.

MIDWAY TO NOWHERE
Melpomene Theatre Group
Written & Directed By: George Djukic
Set after World War 2 in a migrant camp in Australia, "Bitter Springs Creek" examines the collision of the Old World cultures of European refugees and that of a post-war Australia still in the grip of the White Australia Policy, and ambivalent both about its British heritage and its new links to America.
A group of southern European migrants, some political refugees, others economic, wait on tenterhooks in a migrant camp, as they wait to be placed in employment during the winter of 1952. It is set against the background of a riot by the Italian migrants in which they burnt buildings down, triggering the army to send in tanks with machineguns. This is based on an actual episode in Australia's postwar migration history.
Disempowered and trapped in a no-man's-land, the migrants wage a struggle on many fronts: against the past; the authorities; the new country; each other; and themselves, a struggle in turns sad, funny, painful and angry. By the end of the play, each character has a clearer idea of the road ahead. For some, it will be a dark journey. For example:
Sava is an ex-forced labourer who was transported from Yugoslavia to Germany. He chooses not to return after the war, as the communists have taken over. In Australia he befriends young Bosko, 20 years old, who idolises him. Their friendship is strained however when Bosko falls for a woman who prefers Sava. Sava decides not to marry his fiancée when he gets assigned work in tbe canefields, and Bosko is left behind, at the mercy of the ruthless and self-seeking Punisa, who finds him work with an exploitative Australian farmer. Bosko escapes only to be shot in an accident, becoming an invalid.
Gennaro is a young Italian farmer who comes with his family on a work contract but is suddenly trapped in the camp in the middle of the bush because of a sudden recession. His daughter becomes ill and dies and he seeks revenge on the incompetent doctor.
Rade is tormented by his experiences in concentration camps; paranoidally jealous of his young German wife, he kills her in a fit of anger and is sentenced to prison; his case is based on an actual event
"Bitter Springs Creek" captures an important historical time and place, and affords insights into the experience of being an immigrant and an outsider in Australia from the perspective of a son of New Australians, now no more. It is thus a tribute to their memory and a testimony to their suffering. More generally, in highlighting the need for compassion for and understanding of refugees, present and past, and in offering a perspective corrective of the myths and fears encouraged by mainstream media and politicians, it assumes special relevance to contemporary Australian society.

With unforgettable songs and a deeply moving story by the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning creators of Next to Normal, IF/THEN is a fascinating, ambitious and original new musical. IF/THEN simultaneously follows one woman's two possible life paths, painting a deeply moving portrait of the lives that we lead, as well as the lives that we might have led.
Elizabeth, a city planner, moves back to New York to restart her life in the city of infinite possibilities. When her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate, Elizabeth's life splits into two parallel paths. IF/THEN follows both stories simultaneously, as this modern woman faces the intersection of choice and chance.
IF/THEN is a contemporary Broadway musical about living in New York today and all of the possibilities of tomorrow. With a powerhouse role for a leading lady and rich and complex supporting roles, this show celebrates dynamite talent and the power of great storytelling.

the one day of the year
THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR
Therry Dramatic Society
Written By: Alan Seymour
Directed By: Kerrin White
While living in Sydney, playwright Alan Seymour was on his way home from the 1955 Anzac Day March when he saw drunken former soldiers brawling outside hotels. That day to change his life. Written in 1958 (when Seymour was 31) for an amateur playwriting competition, The One Day of the Year was also inspired by an article in the University of Sydney newspaper denouncing Anzac Day.
On its release, the play created outrage. Seymour’s fictional work highlighted social inequality, issues of mateship and masculinity and questioned Australians’ notions of national identity.
The play has since become a classic of Australian theatre, alongside Ray Lawler's Summer of the Seventeenth Doll, both dealing with concepts of mateship and the Australian way of life
Youth Roles Available:

Son of Dot and Alf. He rebels against his conventional and conservative upbringing. Hughie is frustrated with his father's lack of education and conservative values.

Are you a lover of all things musical theatre? Have you been working on a song, but only ever had the opportunity to perform it to your goldfish? Is there a role you love and would kill for the chance to perform one of their songs, even though you’ll never have the opportunity to play that role due to age, gender, ethnicity, etc.? Are you generally cast in the chorus but would like the opportunity to step up and show Adelaide what you can do? 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? Are you a student preparing for an assessment or an audition to that exclusive theatre school?
