Typhoid Mary Auditions

Typhoid Mary is a new, original musical being produced for its premiere in 2020 by De La Salle with OLSH College. Typhoid Mary, with music and lyrics by Andrew Murrell, and script by James Melchior, tells the tale of Mary Mallon, an Irish American cook who infected dozens of people with typhoid fever through unhygienic food preparation in the early 1900s.

Auditions will be from 3:30pm till 5:30pm on Friday 13 September in the PAC. This audition is open to all students from Year 8 and above. Please contact Mr Murrell for the permission form and audition form that both need to be filled out before the audition. If any student needs to audition outside this time, please see Mr Murrell as soon as possible.
