The Playhouse Company is holding auditions for professional performers to take part in their upcoming production, For Your Ears Only, to be staged in the Drama Theatre as part of the company’s festive season programme.

A coloured female is required to play the role of Pearl, a spunky voice artist in her late 20’s as well as a white male for the role of Harold, an ageing matinee idol in his mid-50’s.

Set in a radio studio, For Your Ears Only is a wild and wonderful play-within-a-play that takes audiences ‘behind the scenes’… to the ‘coal-face of creativity’ where a group of actors, together with a producer and a writer, assemble for the recording of a weekly radio ‘soap’, tantalisingly entitled The Soul of Sister Serious. A comedy that crackles with humour and inventiveness, this acclaimed Paul Slabolepszy offering stars Michael Richard, Louise St. Claire, Sibusiso Radebe, as well as the playwright himself.

The production will be directed by Ralph Lawson and will rehearse during November.

Auditions will take place at The Playhouse Company rehearsal room A1, 29 Acutt Street, Durban, on March 27, 2015. Contact Sifiso Sikhakhane on 031 369 9457 or email during office hours to secure an audition slot.
