COOLIE ODYSSEY AUDITIONS (article first published : 2005-05-7)

The Playhouse Company invites actors to audition for principal roles in its upcoming Festive Season production of The Coolie Odyssey written by Rajesh Gopie and directed by Heinrich Reisenhofer.

The Coolie Odyssey is a celebrated play about the indenture of workers from India for the sugar plantations in Natal between the years 1860 to 1911, a contentious and often neglected political issue in today's national dialogue.

Auditions are scheduled to take place at The Playhouse Company on May 9 and 10. Call backs will take place on May 11. Actors are required to prepare a modern and a classical monologue of no more than two minutes each in length. Actors need to be versatile. Singing and dancing are preferable but not essential.

Roles to be cast include: Indian male (late 20's to late 30's); Indian male (early 20's to mid 20's); Indian female (20's to 30's); White female - needs to play Indian characters (20ís to 30's); Coloured Female - needs to be able to play Indian characters (20ís to 30's), and White Male (40 and over).

Rehearsals start mid October in Durban.

To book an audition time phone Eubulus Tracy on 031 369 9461 or 082 877 4627.
