Welcome to Dionysus Theatre’s Cyber Theatron

A place for viewing all that we are and all that we have to offer

Come and raise a glass with us at our next Dionysus Festival!



Last night I was present at the birth of a new theatre company. Many are born, but some are sickly and die in infancy. Dionysus, however, is a strong, healthy and beautiful baby – conceived in love and passion for theatre. Its mother is Emma Sproule, an exciting young director and winner of last year’s Victorian Drama League award for Best Director of a Comedy, and the birth was an exciting and joyous occasion… Despite the quality, and the quest for excellence, Dionysus needs community support to grow and prosper.

Play 1 - 'Adam & Eve' by Michelle Robertson and Kevin Middleton (2 M, 1F) - Directed by Gemma Sylvester-Keech

SYNOPSIS: Forced to hide in a bunker for months to escape a Government siege, Adam and Eve are desperate for help to save them from an unnatural future. Seeking out the help of a scientist, they hold on to hope, only to find out it's too late.

Play 2 - 'The Half Life of Truth' by Matt Allen (1M, 2F) - Directed by Jesse Thomas

SYNOPSIS: A young woman seeks out the help and advice of a medical professional due to her constant forgetfulness and memory loss. She explains all of her issues in detail, and laments at the burden she is on her boyfriend's life. However she soon discovers that all of the truths she thought she knew might not be so black and white. And finally when the boyfriend also seeks advice from the same Doctor, it all begins to unravel.

Play 3 - 'A Method' by Melanie Thomas (cast of 4 - 1F, other 3 open) - Directed by Jett Thomas

SYNOPSIS: In an undisclosed time and place four people meet. What follows is an emotional and existential discussion about human life, society and humanity's role in the world. Who are these people, why have they come together and what does the impact of their meeting mean for humanity moving forward?

Play 4 - 'Of Cabbages and Kings' by Sarah Thomas (2M) - Directed by Ebonee McKean

At a small park bench, Jim meets Gerald. Gerald is an odd, spacey man with very peculiar things to say about our world as well as his, and Jim's, place within it. But from this conversation, Jim's outlook on life changes. Suddenly what we are, who we are supposed to be and our general place in the entire universe is questioned.

No roles have been pre-cast.

IMPORTANT: Please arrive 10 minutes early to fill out an audition form and bring a small photograph/headshot to your audition that we can keep.
