Bride And Groom Required For A Perfect Wedding

With the Mackay Festival of Arts once again on the horizon, Kucom Theatre is holding auditions for their Festival Fringe event, Perfect Wedding.

Auditions will be held on Sunday, March 19 from 2:00pm for the Theatre’s July production, a comedy by Robin Hawdon and directed by Kathryn Evans.

Kucom Theatre will be casting for the following roles: Rachel - the bride, 20s; Bill - the groom, 20s; Tom - the best man, 20s; Judy - a girl, 20s; Julie - a chambermaid, 20s; Daphne - the bride's mother, 40s.

The theatre is also seeking a production team that will do the play justice, including a Producer, Stage Manager, Costume Person, Props Person and Sound and Lighting Operator.

Director Ms Evans brings a wealth of experience and an impressive list of credits to the production, meaning anyone who gets to work with her will be in for a treat.

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done it before,” Ms Evans said.

“It's great fun, it’s a wonderful way to make new friends.”

Perfect Wedding follows a groom who wakes on his wedding morning in his own bridal suite with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment.

As he awakes, he finds a strange girl in bed beside him – an extremely attractive girl whom, in the depths of his post stag-night hangover, he can’t remotely remember even having been introduced to.

Then things start to get really complicated.

For those who would like to audition but cannot attend on March 19, an alternative time may be arranged by Ms Evans on 0417 634 834 or by emailing with the subject line: Auditions “Perfect Wedding”.

Perfect Wedding will be showing at Kucom Theatre from July 6 to 8 and 13 to 15.

Early bird tickets are available from Monday, April 24.

The Kucom Annual General Meeting, including election of the 2023 Committee, is scheduled for Tuesday, March 28.

This is a public meeting and everyone is welcome to attend.
