Penrith Players is holding a second casting evening for Our Country’s Good on Tuesday 19 March at 7:30 in the Playhouse bar. The play will be performed from 5 – 8 June. The cast requires seven men and four women playing dual roles for the most part.
Our Country’s Good is a modern classic taught in A Level Theatre studies and is a period piece adapted from the true story about a group of convicts staging the first play to be performed in Australia. The play tackles the themes of redemption, what it means to be ‘civilized’ and the power of theatre as a force for good.
Director James Shorrock said: “We had an excellent first audition from which good actors have emerged. I have a couple of parts to fill, but I also want to see how they would fit in with the actors who have already auditioned, so those who were at the previous event are welcome to return.”
