Auditions are invited for Mates Theatre Genesis production of “Barbecue” by Daryl Peebles, to be performed 25th January – 8th Feb 2020 at the Redland Museum.

Smell the snags on the barby and listen to the sound of a tinny being cracked open. “Barbecue” is a grassroots Australian comedy set around the cultural ritual of the backyard barby. Retired truck driver Colin Cooper and his family unexpectedly win the lottery and move from the working class suburb of Bestwood to the ritzy suburb of Grand Bay. Many hilarious moments unfold as the Coopers rub shoulders with their upper class “successful” neighbours.

Auditions will be held Saturday 12th October 2019 by appointment at The Redland Museum 60 Smith St Cleveland.
