AUDITIONS: A Kick In The Baubles

Sunday 15 May 2022 at 10am at the MADC Clubrooms, St Venera

A Kick in the Baubles By Gordon Steele,

Directed by Steve Casaletto, at the MADC Playhouse, St Venera

Performance Dates: 25/26/27 Nov & 2/3/4/9/10/11 Dec 2022

It’s another peaceful Christmas in the Bauble household, but chestnuts aren’t roasting on an open fire.  And although a Silent Night would be welcome, all is not calm and all is certainly not bright.

Frank does not wish it could be Christmas every day - in fact, he’s dreading the arrival of snobbish in-laws who only ever bring a single bottle of wine for the entire festivities.  Throw in a couple of larger-than-live neighbours, let the drink flow merrily, and everything is set for a car-crash Christmas.

Character Descriptions

Frank - PreCast - John Montanaro

Jean - Frank’s Wife 40 to 50 Jean is really looking forward to Christmas and she sees the good in everyone and everything. 

Doreen - Jean’s Sister - 40 to 50 Doreen is a bit like `Hyacinth Bucket`.  However, once Doreen has had a few drinks inside her she lets the accent and posh act drop. 

Harry - Doreen’s Husband - 40 to 50 A very brash and cocky self made man. 

Gary - Frank’s Neighbour - 25 to 35 Gary is a beer drinking, karaoke loving larrikin who treats Jean and Frank’s home as his own.

Julie - Gary’s Wife - 25 to 35 Julie is into her looks and figure. Not the brightest of sparks. 

Alex (female) - Harry & Doreen’s Daughter - 18- 20 (Smaller role) Not very bright. She is easily swayed by her boyfriend.

Milly - Frank & Jean’s Daughter - 18 – 20 (smaller role) Milly felt she did not match up to her mother’s expectations, but now returns home wanting to reunite. She works hard at getting her parents to like her boyfriend Darren.

Darren - 20-25 (smaller role) Stable young man and the love of Milly’s life.
