When Matt Evans’ character Theo Poulos auditions for the rock band Lyrik on today’s episode of Home and Away (1:45pm – check our TV Guide for listings), it all kind of seems like The X Factor!
With Bob Forsyth’s resignation as lead singer, the band is in bad shape.
The problem is that Lyrik have previously agreed to perform at another event to support the local eatery Salt’s business.
They must now quickly find a NEW lead singer.
The co-owner of Salt, Felicity Newman (Jacqui Purvis), jumps into action by announcing open auditions for a substitute vocalist at the establishment.
Undiscovered musical talent is unfortunately not exactly abundant in Summer Bay!
Band members Bree Cameron (Juliet Godwin), Eden Fowler (Stephanie Panozzo), and Remi Carter (Adam Rowland) start to worry about the band’s future.
However, Kirby Aramoana (Angelina Thomson) might be holding a surprise ace card.
Theo, a nearby auto technician, is invited to perform!
Theo and Kirby have already bonded through their shared passion for singing and music.
Will Theo have what it takes to impress the band when he shows up for the tryouts at Salt?
Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) and her boss Justin Morgan argue down at the garage (James Stewart).
After THAT entire ugly incident where Justin almost had Theo expelled from his TAFE school for cheating on an assignment, Ziggy has taken over overseeing Theo’s apprenticeship at the garage.
She is not pleased, though, when Justin urges Theo to forego necessary study time in order to attend a Lyrik audition.
Theo wants to be a rock star, but where is he going to find the time to study for his mechanical apprenticeship?
