Auditions set for Noël Coward’s ‘Hay Fever’

From page A7 | August 26, 2014 |

Auditions for the first show in Art Theater of Davis’ 2014-15 season, Noël Coward’s “Hay Fever,” will run from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30, at 946 Olive Drive in Davis. Audition sign-ups will take place on a first-come, first-served basis, starting at 5 p.m. Enter through the side door of Third Space Art Collective and come into the theater area.

Call-backs will be Sunday, Aug. 31, from 5 to 8 pm.

Casting for “Hay Fever” includes roles for four men and five women, ages 18 and older. Rehearsals are set for Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 6-Oct. 29. The show will be presented Oct. 29-Nov. 23.

“Hay Fever,” written by Coward in 1924, is a cross between a farce and a comedy of manners — bad manners — that the New York Times called “an evening of intoxicating escape.” An outlandish and self-centered family hosts guests for a weekend at their English country estate where their bohemian manners leave the rather bourgeois guests aghast and appalled.

“It is far away one of the most difficult plays to perform that I have ever encountered,” Coward himself said.

This is the first comedy, and the first work not performed from an original translation, presented by The Art Theater of Davis, a new ensemble entering its second season.

“Our company is on a mission to bring classics of modern theater to Davis, often using original translations,” said Timothy Nutter, artistic director. “As regional theaters trend toward contemporary and commercial work, we strive to enrich our community by staging masterworks of theater history.

“By re-staging them for modern audiences, we renew the dialogue between that rich cultural past and our present.”
