AUDITION NOTICE: 'The Cemetery Club' by Tugun Theatre Company

AUDITION DATE: Monday, 13th May at 6:45 pm for a 7:00 pm start - Tugun Theatre, 414 Coolangatta Rd, Tugun QLD

"The Cemetery Club" is a delightful comedy that explores love, loss, and friendship with heart and humour. Set in New York, the play follows a group of quirky characters navigating life after the death of a spouse.


  • Ida: She is a nurturing and sweet person – but she delivers her share of wisecracks. Ida is ready to move on to find male companionship again.

  • Lucille: Lucille is the feisty girl with the big personality, who just wants to have fun. She hides her heartache with humour.

  • Doris: Doris is conservative and judgemental. She still lives for her husband, though he’s been dead for four years. She disapproves of her friends who are trying to find love again - but values their friendship and shared bonds.

  • Sam: Sam, the butcher, is a widower. He is an easy-going, thoroughly nice person – a people pleaser. He loved his wife but he is lonely and wants to find female companionship again. He’s sweet on Ida.

  • Mildred: Mildred is trying to get her hooks into Sam. She is wriggling her way into his life, whether he likes it or not.


  • American accent (not Southern), but we can assist with perfecting it.

  • All characters have a stage age of 50s to 60s.

  • 4 females and 1 male required
