Upcoming Auditions at Harbour Theatre for 2017:

"The Sunshine Boys"
By Neil Simon
Directed by Dale James



AUDITION:  Saturday 20th May 2017 between 1 - 4pm


LOCATION:
Mosman Park Memorial Hall (aka Camelot Theatre)
16 Lochee Street (cnr Solomon St)
MOSMAN PARK WA


SYNOPSIS:
The story focuses on characters Al Lewis and Willy Clark, a one-time vaudevillian team called Lewis and Clark, also known as The Sunshine Boys. Over the course of their forty-odd year career, not only did Clark and Lewis grow to hate each other but never spoke to each other off-stage throughout the final year of their act. The stubborn Clark, who was not ready for retirement, resented the wiser Lewis for breaking up the act when he opted to leave show business.

Now eleven years later and CBS is inviting the team to reunite for a special on the history of comedy, with the pair representing the vaudeville era at its best. Clark is convinced by his nephew Ben, a talent agent, to revive one of the old routines one last time.

Much of the humour in this classic Neil Simon play is derived from efforts to get the two cantankerous actors into the same room for a rehearsal, their differences of opinion once they reunite, and their shenanigans on the actual broadcast.
