THE PLAY

Quartet is a play whose themes appeal to a wide array of audiences: themes of unrequited love, disappointment, dashed hopes, and the fall of the mighty. Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred—three retired opera singers—reside in a home for geriatric musicians in Kent, England. Each year, on the tenth of October, there is a concert to celebrate Giuseppe Verdi’s birthday. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts the equilibrium; she still acts like a diva and refuses to sing in the concert. But the show must go on, in this poignant, farcical, tongue-in-cheek play about four primé donné forced to deal—unwillingly—with the decrepitude and indignities of getting old.

THE CHARACTERS

Cecily Robson (Female, any race, 60+) – a plump soprano
dwelling in the fantasies of the past
Reginald Paget (Male, any race, 60+) – an “immaculate,
collar-and-tie” tenor fascinated by art
Wilfred (Wilf) Bond (Male, any race, 60+) – a larger-than-life
Basso, artistically untidy
Jean Horton (Female, any race, 60+) – a reticent diva,
most unwilling to embrace her circumstances

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

• Provide theatrical résumé, headshot, and schedule conflicts
(a rehearsal schedule will be provided at auditions.)
• There will also be cold readings from the script.
• Please prepare 16 bars of a well-known song, jingle,
anthem, or nursery rhyme that best displays your ability to emote
while singing. Singing will be a cappella with no accompaniment.
