Current Production

AUDITION… ‘COSI’

MTC will be holding Auditions for ‘COSI’, an Australian play by Louis Nowra –

Monday 10th December and Tuesday 11th December at 6:30pm. Greenroom, Majestic Theatre, Malanda.

Director Jean Newman requires seven males and four females of various ages.

‘Cosi’ is a terrific play about madness, illusion, sanity…and theatre.  Set in a mental institution in 1971, Lewis, a young director, takes on the task of mounting a production of Mozart’s ‘Cosi Fan Tutte’ in the burnt-out theatre while protests against the Vietnam War are being staged outside. COSI takes a poignant look at life through the eyes of patients at an insane asylum. On another level, it’s a hilarious take on the madness of creative endeavour and the chaotic terror of getting up there and making a fool of yourself.

The second Malanda Theatre Company production for 2019 is the farcical adaptation of ‘The 39 Steps’ by Patrick Barlow.

To be directed by Graham and Gill Harrington.  We have chosen this play because it is hilarious and unusual in the way the story is presented.  It offers considerable challenges for the actors, directors and crew.
