Curtain Up
Directed by Sara Single

Written by Peter Quilter

Curtain Up! is the hilarious story of five women who inherit equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and plan to bring it back to life again. They try various fund-raising schemes but their most ambitious is to hold a concert featuring local talent and a world-famous star who agrees to appear for no fee! However, their plans go awry and it’s a race to keep their audience from guessing the truth of the matter. A fast-paced and very funny comedy with five great roles for women.

“A mad play, full of dynamism, momentum, funny dialogue and great surprises…

Proves that purely female plays can achieve great success and lots of laughter…

Well worth seeing – you can be assured of great entertainment”

Thinking about auditioning with the Waihi Drama Society?

Auditions are run by the director and a WDS committee member and generally last about 10-15 mins (unless stated otherwise in the audition notice). There can be a bit of waiting around to get your turn so take the opportunity to meet some new people and have a chat. Once you’ve read for your part, the director may ask you to stay and read again with different people in different roles. Auditions generally involve a cold read from the script, however the audition process varies with each play and director so we suggest you read over any notes before attending your audition.
