will hold au­di­tions for its up­com­ing sea­son of satir­i­cal com­edy Our Man in Ha­vana at its Nerang the­atre on Sun­day from 2pm. Writ­ten by Gra­ham Greene and adapted for the stage by Clive Fran­cis, the play lam­poons in­ept Bri­tish In­tel­li­gence Ser­vice MI5. The plot fol­lows James Wormald, a vac­uum-cleaner sales­man liv­ing in Cuba who spends his days drink­ing in seedy bars and wor­ry­ing about his daugh­ter’s spend­ing. When a vis­it­ing English­man ‘‘re­cruits’’ him to the Se­cret Ser­vice, he sees it as a chance to climb out of debt. Di­rec­tor Eric James needs four ac­tors – three males; one fe­male – to play some 30 parts. ‘‘This play is se­ri­ously fun for ac­tors and au­di­ences alike,’’ he says. Bri­tish and South Amer­i­can ac­cents re­quired. Email mad­londo@on­ for au­di­tion pieces and times. Our Man in Ha­vana plays Javeen­bah The­atre, Nerang, from May 24 to June 8.

Coast Lit­tle The­atre will hold au­di­tions for Corpse!, a com­edy thriller from the pen of Bri­tish writer Ger­ald Moon, at its South­port the­atre on Sun­day from 10am. De­scribed as a ‘‘who­dun­nit to whom’’ set in Lon­don in 1936 the day of Ed­ward VIII’s ab­di­ca­tion, Corpse! tells the story of twin brothers, one of who plots to mur­der the other in most un­usual cir­cum­stances. Di­rected by Nathan Schulz, the sea­son runs from June 29 to July 20. Call 5532 2096 or email n—shultz@hot­ for au­di­tion de­tails.
