2022 Shakespeare in the Park season (The Tempest):

“Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, A tale of a fateful trip…”

After their successful seasons of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM and THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, Roleystone Theatre are proud to announce auditions for their 2022 season at Araluen Botanic Park:
William Shakespeare’s THE TEMPEST

  • Auditions: Saturday 18TH June 2022
  • Time: 1:00pm & 4:00pm
  • Venue: Harold King Community Centre, 11 Grovelands Drive, Camillo
  • (cnr of Westfield Rd, next to Aldi Camillo)
  • Bookings: please EMAIL the director at
  • Season: 12-13 & 19-20 November 2022

The production’s aesthetic will be drawn from American Popular Culture of the 1960s, especially with a beach or shipwreck theme, such as Gidget and Gilligan’s Island.

  • Auditions will be held as group auditions. Expect to be at the audition venue for 2 hours.
  • Please prepare a Shakespearean monologue – you do not have to learn it off by heart, you can read it if you need to. Preferably not one from The Tempest unless it is already one of your standard audition pieces.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that you can move around in.

Alternate audition times MAY be available upon negotiation with the director.
