Noosa Arts Theatre Auditions
AUDITIONS FOR ARIA
Open Auditions with Director Sam Coward are to be held at Noosa Arts Theatre on Wednesday, December 6.
**Please arrive at 5.30pm for registration for a 6pm sharp start**
No need to have rehearsed any monologues. Director Sam will be mixing it up with games improvisation and maybe some script work, with the emphasis on fun.
Every year on the birthday of her three sons, who were all born on the same day, Monique gathers them together to mark the occasion. Her husband Kevin died years ago, but her three sons, who she idolizes, have more than filled the gap. Unfortunately for all the wives Monique, highy strung and imperious, doesn’t hold the same high opinion of them.
As the crowning moment of the gathering she sings a famous Opera Aria to remind them that until she met and married Kevin, she was destined to become a Diva. Her gatherings have always been fraught in the past but this year is something else again.
Aria is a play about how we all try to protect our inner selves by imagining we are somewhat more talented and special than we are, and how sometimes when image meets reality it can bring on crises. Aria exposes the raw conflicts that are inescapable in just about every family that ever existed. Funny, sad, dramatic- a caustic mirror held up to life.
