Perhaps the most outrageous production ever staged at Vic. will run in the Memorial Theatre April 29 — May 5. Under the general guise of a Rock Opera that dubious genre defined in N.Z. by Alan Faquar) the show promises to be lurid, sensational witty and banned.
To assist Ian Watkin (300lbs of director) get this together we need females, males and eunuchs in the form of dancers, stage hands, technical staff, and wrestlers.
Auditions for this outrageous show will be held in the Listening Room, next Monday 19th March at 5.30pm.
