Actors sought for
Local theatre group Let Us Entertain You is on the hunt for seven keen actors to be part of its upcoming performance.
LUEY will be performing David Williamson’s Soul Mates in October under the direction of debut director Matthew Jenkins.
A theatre enthusiast for decades, Mr Jenkins said he was looking forward to the challenge of directing.
‘‘I had reached the point where I wasn’t going to be cast as the leading male any more ... I wanted to stay involved,’’ he said.
Mr Jenkins said Mr Willi- amson was arguably one of Australia’s greatest playwrights, and was looking forward to the challenge of recreating his story on the stage.
‘‘It’s quite a meaty play so it’s going to be challenging to cast because all seven characters are large, meaty characters,’’ Mr Jenkins said.
‘‘Even the smallest part is not a cameo.’’
Soul Mates is a story of about several different relationships between books, authors and the readers who love them both.
Set in Melbourne and New York, it is a tale of revenge as
