What's On


The Sutherland Theatre Company is holding open auditions for the March production of Ronald Harwood's poignant comedy Quartet. We are looking for four older actors (two male and two female) for this production.

Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred reside in a home for retired opera singers in Kent, England. Each year, on the tenth of October, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva and refuses to sing. But the show must go on in this funny and poignant play by the author of Another Time, The Dresser and Interpreters.

The production will be staged at the Sutherland Memorial School of Arts from March 2 - 11, 2018. As we are a community theatre company, all roles are unpaid.  

Audition dates

Sunday 10 December @ 2pm

Thursday 14 December @ 7:30pm

Venue: Sutherland Multi-Purpose Centre, 123 Flora St Sutherland 2232


Cecily - female, stage age 60+. A bubbly, excitable retired opera singer with a hint of dementia.

Reggie - male, stage age 60+. Withdrawn and serious. Likes order and structure in his life.

Wilfred - male, stage age 60+. A randy old man with a wicked sense of humour.

Jean - female, stage age 60+. A tactless, overbearing, self-centered diva.
