Picnic at Hanging Rock
by Joan Lindsay

As old as time; deep in the psyche of the land; the Rock breathes.
Imperceptibly, indifferently.
The Rock breathes.
The schoolgirls are drawn inexorably in.
The rock breathes; leaving only the brief echo of the scream, ‘Miranda!’

Female actors (5) required to solve the mystery of Picnic at Hanging Rock.
Stage version adapted by Tom Wright, directed by Rob Whitehead.

If you are between the ages of 19 – 31 and not afraid of hard work and strong challenges, then this is the audition for you!

What to prepare: A short (max 2min) poem. Any style, any theme but one that means something to you.

This will be an open audition; no set time slots and may be a bit different from what you are used to, but don’t let that put you off. There will be group work, partner work, script reading and perhaps a little bit of waiting around.
Please wear appropriate loose comfortable clothing as physical movement will be part of the audition process.
