CHOIR GETS THE BUL­LET

Comment News (Gosnells) - - Lifestyle -

MADDING­TON labourer Cal­lum Yard­ley will stare death in the face when he stars in Katie Rice’s The Mozart Fac­tion.

The black com­edy, di­rected by Siob­han O’Gara, finds a small sub­ur­ban choir held at gun­point in their church by an irate neigh­bour.

Mozart’s Re­quiem brings on a new mean­ing for the choir mem­bers, who each show their true colours when star­ing down the bar­rel of a gun.

Yard­ley had fun with the char­ac­ter of Ari, a young mu­sic lover.

“He is light-hearted and likes to laugh and joke around but at his core he is truly pas­sion­ate about mu­sic,” he said.

“Ari is for­giv­ing and fun but has a streak of steel in him – he is brave and shows that in his de­fi­ance. The chal­lenge is to show the lay­ers of a three-di­men­sional char­ac­ter with all his sides, not in sep­a­rate sec­tions but as a whole.”

Yard­ley stud­ied in Lon­don at the pri­vate act­ing con­ser­va­tory The Poor School and has acted for the past seven years.

The Mozart Fac­tion plays at 8pm on April 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22 with a 2pm mati­nee April 9. Tick­ets are $20 for adults and $15 for con­ces­sion. Book on 9330 4565 or at www.meltheco.org.au.
