Plush Duck Productions is  bringing the NSW premiere of NED, a new Australian musical, to the New Theatre from December 18-22, 2018.

NED: A New Australian Musical
Music and Lyrics by Adam Lyon
Book by Anna Lyon & Marc McIntyre
By arrangement with David Spicer Productions

Commissioned for the opening of the Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo in 2015, NED is set in rural Victoria in the late 1800s.  It charts the transformation of a local hero into an outlawed criminal into a national myth. When their mother Ellen Kelly is unjustly convicted of attempting to murder a policeman, brothers Ned and Dan and their two friends Joe and Steve flee to the bush to avoid their own arrest. They are quickly outlawed and villainised as the feared ‘Kelly Gang’, eventually taking a final, fatal stand against the police.

NED interrogates the notion of what makes a villain, how to survive in extremely trying circumstances, and just how far one will go to save their friends and family. With a rich, haunting score and a libretto that captures the raucous humour, warmth, and tragedy that audiences would expect from this iconic Australian story, NED deserves a life beyond Bendigo.

Plush Duck Productions [Facebook] will be launching NED into the Sydney musical theatre community and beyond and are now calling auditions.

Auditions will be held on Thursday 6th/Friday 7th September from 7-10pm (Camperdown), and Saturday 8th September from 10am-4pm (Alexandria).

Please see the audition pack for all further details about the show and audition process.
