Audition for AMADEUS 

Amadeus Teaser.png

Parker Players is excited to announce auditions for Amadeus by Peter Shaffer.


Directors Chris Causer and Jenilee Houghton are bringing a rebellious new take on this classic story.


It's a tale of two artists and how their ego-driven battle for fame and glory ultimately leads to their respective demise.


A levity-filled drama whose scope is as operatic as it comes, but presented as an intimate, immersive (and slightly anarchic) new experience.
