Auditions for “1979 Is Going” Musical


1979 is Going is a political musical following the coming of age of four students in Iran, 1979, pre-Islamic Republic. Norah Shah is a bright university student who’s planning to go to an interview for a transfer program in England with the help of her friend Arash, behind her parents backs. At the same time, Norah’s friend Sara is attempting to convince her family to accept her new boyfriend, Siamak. All of their personal troubles come to a standstill, however, when the country goes to war. Essentially, 1979 is Going expresses Iran’s changes in government amongst kitchen bickering and break ups, and through family dinners and disappointed mothers. But above all, it expresses how much things can change when life throws something unbelievable at you.

In the Music Room on the 2nd floor of the Goldring Student Centre, Victoria College Campus
Nov. 15th 6-8 PM
Nov. 16th 1-4 PM

Please prepare a contemporary monologue and two songs; a slower piece and another upbeat piece. These songs should also be contemporary.

Break a leg! :)
