NEWSLETTER FOR MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS
April 2017
Things are moving apace at Three River.  We're gearing up for auditions for September's major production: the beautiful, scathing and sultry The Season at Sarsaparilla.  We're looking forward to the first playreading of the year.  And we're excited about the wealth of theatre on offer in little old Launnie.

SARSAPARILLA AUDITIONS

"White sees the tremendous fragility and nakedness of life.  He stages a mythic
presentation of ordinary life.  With scathing contempt and deep compassion
he brings us close to hidden lives...  He achieves what his
character Roy Child longs for, “to change love into the currency of words.” "
- Benedict Andrews, on The Season at Sarsaparilla

A reminder that auditions for The Season at Sarsaparilla will be held:

Sat 29 April, 10:00am - 4:30pm
Sun 30 April, 10:00am - 12:30pm
Sat 13 May, 10:00am - 4:30pm
Sun 14 May if required.

Pilgrim Uniting Church Hall,

There are fourteen speaking roles available (7F, 7M) and a great range of ages are called for.  All roles are juicy.

at the Earl Arts Centre.
Directed by Leigh Oswin.

KICKING A DEAD HORSE

"...the Western landscape may be vanquished by shopping malls and freeways. The American ideals that fed men’s souls may be tarnished and corrupted. The horse is dead, true, but maybe, just maybe, there’s some life left in him yet." - New York Times, 2008.

We are excited to present Sam Shepard's Kicking a Dead Horse as the first of our three playreadings for 2017.

Directed by Jonathan Pedler and performed by Stan Gottschalk, Kicking a Dead Horse traces one Hobart Struther, who made his fortune buying paintings for $20 from Wyoming saloons and reselling them for millions.

In the throes of some midlife crisis, he has abandoned his wife and his posh life for a "grand sojourn" - what will turn out to be a doomed "quest for authenticity". In a 50-minute monologue, the former art dealer discusses what path brought him here in the first place, the fate of his marriage, his career, politics and eventually the nature of the universe.

Please join us for what will be a magical reading.
