We are looking for actors/singers who are talented, committed. No experience necessary. This is an exciting opportunity to join a new theatre company. We are staging 4 productions between now and next July so if you impress us in SHOCK HORROR you will definitely be asked to take part in all of our future productions

Frederick Usher

This the show's main antagonist. He believes he has got away with the murder of his brother Salieri. He plays host to the many colourful characters who come to Usher House seeking shelter for the night. He is a cross between Vincent Price and Dracula. Must have good comic timing. Sings solo

Males, aged 18 to 50

Dominic Lians

Dominic is one of the shows two leads. He is the shows "hero". Young, ambitious, dashing. He has come to Usher House with his good friend Vincent to investigate Salieri Ushers murder. In normal hero fashion he soon meets a mysterious girl and promptly falls in love with her. He has a very funny "skeleton in his closet" that comes to light close to the end of the show. Sings solo

Males, aged 18 to 30

Elaine Usher

Elaine is one of two female leads. At first it appears she's a victim of Frederik Ushers evil but soon it's obvious she is not all she appears to be. She is quickly swept off her feet by Dominic. This is a good role to flex those acting muscles. One minute she's the damsel in distress and the next...well I don't want to spoil it :-) sings solo

Females, aged 18 to 30

Erik

Erik is part of the trio of actors who seek shelter at Usher House. He is very eccentric, camp and a very fun role. He is homosexual and proud of it (he even develops a crush on one of our male leads). Excellent comic timing required. Sings solo

Males, aged 18 to 30

Concepcione

The only female member in our trio of actors. She is very forthcoming and speaks her mind. Her hopes of finding a suitable one night stand in usher house seem rather bleak. Though an unlikely candidate is soon found later in the show and they share a very funny duet and a tango. Good comic timing needed. Must be comfortable with dancing. Sings solo

Females, aged 18 to 40

Stefano

Completing our trio of actors is Stefano. A Russian method actor who meets a rather sticky end in our tale. This is a part to really ham it up. The man is almost a caricature (complete with James Bond villain accent). Good comic timing required. Sings solo *may also double up with another role

Males, aged 18 to 50

Detective Mason

Inspector Clueso with an English accent. He thinks he is a much better detective than he actually is. He too comes to Usher house to find a murderer but instead leaves just as clueless as before and a little...dead. Must have basic dance ability or at least able to follow choreography. Sings solo

Males, aged 18 to 50

Lenore

The secondary female lead. The long suffering wife of Vincent who has felt the need to occasionally visit him (despite the fact she is dead at the start of the show). She is very sarcastic and just a bit of a compulsive complainer. In death she is still beautiful...we'll mostly. Requires excellent comic timing. Sings solo

Females, aged 18 to 30

Ensemble of lunatics, puppets, speaking roles

We are also looking for people to take on chorus singing roles and dancers for lunatics, puppets and ghosts. There are also speaking roles for those not comfortable with singing including:
Angelo (usher's sinister butler)
Rufus Griswold (sings solo but looking for an actor to play him and be part of the chorus)
Priest
Edgar Allan Poe (it's based on his work so felt the man himself should appear briefly)

Anyone, aged 18 and over
