Audition call for new school production

From Head of Drama, Alison Jinga


Would you like to be in next year’s School Production of “Stories in the Dark” by Deborah Oswald?

Come and audition in the PAC Theatre next Tuesday 14 November at 3:25pm.

We will also be having call backs the following day on Wednesday 15 November.

  • Students in Years 7-10 are eligible to audition.
  • No preparation is necessary.
  • Students will be given a script to read during the audition.

The play is about:

A terrified 12-year-old boy finds himself separated from his family in the unfamiliar streets of a war torn city. He takes refuge in a bombed-out house and in the total blackness his bravado crumbles into tears.

Into his life steps Anton – older, street smart and scornful of his crying. As a way of shutting the boy up, he starts to tell him a story that he vaguely remembers from his own childhood. And so begins a journey into the shifting, shimmering world of ogres, princes, singing bones, foolish lads and wolf-mothers.

Stories in the Dark explores the power of storytelling, mingling the magic and earthy wisdom of folk tales with the hard-edged story of violence, conflict and the struggle to survive.
