International One Acts Auditions
Descriptions: (A) The Falcon: One of the best-loved children’s stories in Russia, this funny, romantic adventure is a story within a story. At Anna’s engagement party comes a storyteller, offering glimpses of a different, enchanting world. He speaks of another Anna who possesses a magic falcon feather that turns into Fenist, a prince. When Fenist is driven off by Anna’s jealous sisters and imprisoned, Anna sets off to rescue him. Eventually, the real Anna must decide between the security of marriage or the adventure of Fenist.
(B) The Masque of Beauty & the Beast: “Moonlight and a gentle, misty veil, the perfect setting for a fairytale. Here, for an hour, you and I will climb the silken threads of ‘Once upon a time…” So begins this enchanting version of Beauty and the Beast. Narrated by masked Gargoyles who also set the scenes and move the action, this stylized story is told in rhymed couplets.
(C) A Thousand Cranes is the true and poignant story of Sadako Sasaki, a young victim of the Hiroshima atomic bomb disaster. Seemingly unharmed when the bomb fell, now at 12 she is diagnosed with “radiation sickness”. With boundless optimism, she takes an old story to heart: If a sick person folds a thousand paper origami cranes the gods will grant her wish and make her well again. She begins to fold her thousand cranes.
