‘Megaseller’ is how VARIETY labelled ‘It’s Only a Play’ when it smashed Broadway in 2014/2015. This sizzling, comic romp is now to be presented at ZPAC Theatre from July 20th to August 5th this year. Auditions for roles are going to be held at the theatre on April 14th from 10am – 12pm.

To be jointly directed by Mark Thomson and Theresa Saunders, this play centres around the opening night of the play, ‘The Golden Egg’, on Broadway. A lavish party at the Producer’s townhouse is under way as all eagerly await the first reviews.

The laugh inducing action takes place in the bedroom above the party where a group of anxious insiders have staked themselves out to be the first to hear the reviews – will they be favourable or not?

In the group are the excitable playwright, the unstable director, the pill-popping, ageing star, the playwright’s supposed best friend, the show’s producer, the acerbic drama critic and the naïve, wannabe, young actor. All combine to create a sharp and humorous comment on theatre and the people who inhabit it.

The New York Times described the play as ‘..among the funniest lines to roll off the stage in years’ while the Wall Street Journal called it ‘hilarious!..the hottest ticket in town’. ‘It’s Only a Play’ is a celebration of theatre at its best and theatre people at their not so best!

Those interested in trying out for roles audition material and further information about characters and the play is available to view here. Paper booklets with the same information will be available from the theatre on Fridays between 9am – 12pm.

The cast required includes: 5 male + 2 Female

1 male (20s), 1 male (30s), 2 males (40s/50s), 1 male (50s/60s), 1 female (30s/40s), 1 female (40s/50s).
