About the opportunity

Queensland Theatre (QT) are currently in the process of casting for their second production in the 2023 season. They are seeking expressions of interest from neurodiverse male-identifying actors aged between 20 and 30. The candidate must have live theatre performance experience and/or theatre training.

This is for the title role of DRIZZLE BOY by Ryan Enniss (winner of the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award) about a young autistic man in search of where he fits in as he moves into his adult life. Who is he, or rather, who does he think others want him to be?

Drizzle Boy is autistic. Drizzle Boy is poked, prodded and diagnosed by a world that wants to change him and a family who doesn’t understand him. Then he meets Juliet — his very own star-crossed love. Could she be a safe space for a man who just wants a calm centre to his universe?

Join Drizzle Boy as he takes back his story from a world of misunderstandings with irreverence and audacity. It’s a biting satire blending magical realism with a Kafkaesque journey of self-discovery. If you are neurotypical then you’re about to take a theatrical cold shower in the world of neurodiversity.

Drizzle Boy is the winner of the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award 2022-23. If you like your theatre fresh, free-wheeling and unexpected, jump on board as director Daniel Evans (The Almighty Sometimes) takes us on an all-terrain ride.

Please send CV and headshot to: by 11 November 2022. For those with appropriate experience/training, first round auditions will be via self-tape (video capture – a scene will be provided). This professional engagement is for an 8-week full-time period from 6 February to 25 March 2023 in Brisbane.
