Hayes Theatre Co presents
DUBBO CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING

Book & Lyrics by Daniel Cullen. Music by Daniel & James Cullen
Director Sheridan Harbridge
Musical Supervisor Joe Accaria
Musical Director Glenn Moorhouse

There’s not a spare seat in the Dubbo Dome. Ozzy the Aussie Battler flicks his cape and steps into the ring, and the crowd go troppo. This is Dubbo Championship Wrestling, the hilarious new Aussie rock musical that will change everything you thought you knew about professional
wrestling, regional Australia, and musical theatre itself.

Rose, a young woman from Dub-Vegas with wrestling in her blood, has long ago turned her back on the family business and Dubbo’s stifling small-town ways. When circumstance brings her back to her hometown on the eve of Dubbomania, the biggest wrestling tournament of the year, Rose is drawn into a monumental battle over family and identity, featuring capes, choreography, and some of the most colourful characters you’ll ever meet.

The violence, the joy, the costumes, the thumbtacks. Will there be
blood? We bloody hope so.

The Creatives and Producers strongly encourage performers of all ethnicities, abilities, and gender expressions to apply.

We are open to any interpretations of the below character descriptions.

All cast must be Sydney Based and will be engaged in a favoured nations deal, under the Live Performance Award.

Rose Green

ROSE GREEN: (17+) Female identifying, all cultural backgrounds (WRESTLES AS EL TESTOSTERÓN) Rose is late teens, in final year of high school. A young woman who grew up with dreams of being a wrestler, but is now disenchanted. Rose is athletic, angry, and snotty little punk with a bad attitude. After a violent outburst at school, Rose begrudgingly returns to Dubbo for community service at her father Des’ failing wrestling promotion; Dubbo Championship Wrestling (DCW).

Female, aged 18 to 30

Applications closed 24 May 2021.

Ron

RON (20+) Male identifying, culturally diverse background only (WRESTLES AS MR MULTICULTURAL & DON RON) A new member of the DCW family, Ron begrudgingly wrestles as Mr Multicultural, a mishmash of eye watering racial stereotypes that were popular with wrestling fans in the 80s, that Des insists Dubbo still wants to see. But now it is 2003, and Ron wants wrestling to retire its xenophobic tropes. Polar opposite to his in-ring persona, Ron is an empathetic gentleman, passionate about the emotional

Male, aged 18 to 35

Applications closed 24 May 2021.

Mickie & Trish

MICKIE & TRISH (25+) (two roles) Female identifying, all cultural backgrounds (WRESTLES AS THE TRADIE LADIES) DCW’s tag team champions and commentary team, the Tradie Ladies are the audience’s guide to the wrestling world. As colour commentator, Mickie is loud-mouthed and provides the emotional reactions to the wrestling action. On play-by-play, Trish is the Roy to Mickie’s HG ; analytical, understated, with a dry sense of humour. Think Kath & Kim, Magda Szubanski, Shirley in Priscilla.

Female, aged 30 and over

Applications closed 24 May 2021.

Ken

KEN (20+) male identifying, all cultural backgrounds (WRESTLES AS PERFECT TEN KEN) The Perfect Bastard, Ken was a white- hot wrestling superstar before his dramatic fall from grace. Having lost the fame, but kept the arrogance, Ken displays a thinly veiled disdain for his new surroundings. Completely deluded, Ken wears sunglasses indoors and firmly believes wrestling is real (think Mr Perfect, young Ric Flair or Shawn Michaels). Nasty little boy with daddy issues. Hails from California.

Male, aged 18 and over

Applications closed 24 May 2021.

Cheryl Green

CHERYL GREEN (35+) Female identifying, all cultural backgrounds (WRESTLES AS FERYL CHERYL) Driven, businesslike, and with a thin veneer of civility, Cheryl was a co-founder of DCW, with her husband Des, before leaving with her daughter Rose to pursue larger aspirations. She has since reinvented herself and would really like everyone to forget her past as “Feral Cheryl”, Dubbo’s bogan queen. Cheryl returns with Rose to Dubbo.

Female, aged 35 and over

Applications closed 24 May 2021.

Ozzy

OZZY (40+) Male identifying, all cultural backgrounds (WRESTLES AS OZZY THE AUSSIE BATTLER). The ageing star of DCW. With a forehead scarred by decades of blading, Ozzy has broken every bone in his body at one point or another. Unlike Ron, Ozzy’s in-ring persona is an exaggerated version of his already ocker personality. Out of his friendship with Des, Ozzy has wrestled long past his expiry date (think Terry Funk or Randy “The Ram” Robinson).

Male, aged 35 and over
