(Ralph Lawson, who will direct the show)

Audition Date: September 9 between 14h00 and17h00

The Playhouse Company is holding auditions for professional performers to take part in its upcoming production of Skungpoomery.

This will be staged daily in the Loft Theatre during the festive season.

Written by Ken Campbell and adapted by Anita Page, Skungpoomery - which means “thinking up words and doing them” - is described as a manic, anarchic, iconoclastic romp whose humour is buttressed with pratfalls, wild chases, absurd disguises and will appeal to young audiences.

The production will be directed by Ralph Lawson and will rehearse at the Playhouse from November 3, and will perform until the end of December.

Auditions will take place at The Playhouse Company rehearsal Room A1, 29 Acutt Street, Durban on September 9 between 14h00 and 17h00. To secure an audition slot, prospective candidates should prepare a humorous poem or a short monologue and contact Sifiso Sikhakhane on 031 369 9457 or email: during office hours.

Local performers from all communities are welcome!
