The team from Stories from the 428 are looking for approximately 20 actors of all ages, looks and backgrounds to join us for a two week season at Sidetrack Theatre in March 2010.

Stories from the 428 is a theatre project which takes its inspiration from travelling on the 428 bus route from the tourist hub of Circular Quay to the urban heart of Canterbury.
