Underground Cinema – Actors Wanted (Melbourne)

Underground Cinema is looking for new actors (m/f) to join their dedicated, hard-working, and infamous in-house troupe of talented performers!

The UGC Acting troupe holds weekly rehearsals for each Underground Cinema event several weeks prior to the production, often led by guest Directors. The troupe works as an ensemble – each performer bringing their own particular skills to the improvisational work done in rehearsals – so that we can bring the characters, history and sense of space and time of the chosen film to life.

Be prepared: production days can be long – with call times early allowing for professional hair & make-up and costume teams to do their awesome thing – but the thrill of improvising around a base structure, working with trained experienced performers & directors of a high caliber and bouncing off our AMAZING UGC audience makes it all worth it!

If you’ve got a history in improvisation, a passion to improve your craft and get in amongst the pulse of Melbourne’s art and performance scene – this is for you!

Although auditions will be workshop-based, and lead by members of the current ensemble, please prepare a monologue of your choosing to present to the troupe. There is no specifications regarding your chosen piece, just chose something that you enjoy and think shows your talents off best!

Audition dates:
Wed 22nd Feb 2012 between 7-10pm

Be prepared for:
A monologue presentation, physical warm up & theatre improvisation & 3 hours of attendance in total.

On the day bring:
A hard copy of your Acting CV & if possible a head shot (although not compulsory)

You will preferably be:
Experienced and or trained in acting/performance and want to further your skills in this field. You will also be hard working and be able to commit to a minimum of 3 events. This is a long-term project and a volunteer position.

If this is you then please email us by 5pm on the 20th Feb 2012 with the subject heading “ACTOR”, a cover letter including your contact phone number and attach your CV.

You will be contacted by phone to book you into the audition. GOOD LUCK!

P.S. Please ensure that you have read the full job description and website before calling with any queries. Thankyou. http://www.undergroundcinema.com.au

Beyonce And Jay Z To Bring ‘On The Run’ Tour To Australia?

Word on the street is that Beyoncé and hubby Jay Z will be bringing their On The Run tour to Australia.

It is yet to be officially confirmed by either party, however, after appearing on a Ticketek waiting list on a post which wrote: “Be the first to hear Beyonce and Jay Z coming to Australia – login and register your interest” we are reading this sign as little nudge, nudge from a reliable industry source.

Soundwave 2015 – Who To Watch Out For On Day One

Six days ago, AJ Maddah unleashed the first Soundwave 2015 lineup unto the world. Then came the stream of status updates on social media, which saw punters divided in criticising or applauding Maddah for what he was able to pull out of his promoter hat.

Featuring big names such as Faith No More, Soundgarden, Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, Slash, Fall Out Boy, and many more, the hard and heavy festival is now a spread over two days – to minimise clashes and optimise “dark time.” Kicking off in Adelaide and Melbourne, Soundwave will then move to Sydney and Brisbane the following weekend.
