The Diments Rock Opera – Audition Notice
Platinum Entertainment, the company behind the WA productions of Jesus Christ Superstar and We Will Rock You are looking for singers, actors, and dancers for a pro run of the rock opera The Diments.
ABOUT THE DIMENTS
A home grown rock show with a difference, a big original rock score, and a musical plot with a dark twist. The brainchild of Perth artist Keshet, an international veteran musician and sound engineer, and his writing partner Lefelman, The Diments Rock Opera is a dark tragedy about falling from grace into the realms of insanity, and one man’s quest for redemption.
The twisted tale centres on Eddie Diment, a successful businessman who believes he has it all – money, power and the beautiful Layla by his side. However, Eddie’s seemingly perfect world is quickly turned upside down when he discovers Layla is having an affair with his wayward brother, Barry. Soon after, a dramatic chain of events unfold that sees Eddie consumed by loss and grief and stripped of everything he once held dear. Edging ever closer to madness, Eddie searches desperately for answers to his downfall – who, or what led him here? And can he find a path to redemption?
The 75 minute epic combines theatrical rock performances, stunning costumes and over the top set design – think Alice Cooper, Kiss and Iron Maiden – with dramatic storytelling to create one hell of a show!
