Media Release – 8 November 2019
The Devonport Choral Society has recently announced the cast for their Tasmanian premiere of The Full Monty. However, there is one very important role that is still up for grabs … the role of Nathan Lukowski.
Director Sid Sidebottom says, “The role of Nathan is a great role for an aspiring young actor who loves musical theatre, and is willing to learn, listen, and work hard to portray this engaging, well-meaning, and instructive character. Nathan is ’12-14 years old going on thirty’, but young-looking for his age.”
Mason Waller, who plays the lead role of Jerry Lukowski, Nathan’s on-stage father, will join Mr Sidebottom to read his parts at the young actors’ audition. “It will be a bonding session from the very start,” said Mr Sidebottom. “The relationship between these two characters is crucial to the story. Nathan can be stoic, sincere, and charming, but ultimately real, as he deals with his parents’ custody battle. Their connection will be believable.”
An information session will take place at Forth Primary School on Sunday 17 November at 3pm. Anyone expressing an interest in auditioning for the role is encouraged to attend with a parent or guardian. “This is a special role in the show in terms of character role and presenting a young person in a largely adult show with adult themes. Of course, this will be done with appropriate sensitivity and in communication with the player’s parents.”
Auditions are by appointment only and will take place on Sunday 1 December. More information is available by contacting Producer, Maree Brodzinski on 0408 079 805 or emailing DCSFullMonty2020@gmail.com .
The Full Monty will be performed at the paranaple arts centre (Town Hall Theatre) in May 2020.
