~ a Contemporary Water Ballet ~
~ Charming Yet Deadly ~
Seventy salty seductresses luring mighty sailors to their doom. Broken-hearted and hungry, these mermaids from the deep will not be satisfied until they have what they want – men! Can you resist the Sirens call?
Winners of the inaugural Auckland 2011 Fringe Peoples Choice Award, and the “media’s feel-good, sold-out hit of the summer”, Sirens was one of the largest outdoor event theatrical shows in the Auckland 2011 Fringe Festival. With a cast of 80, the show was sold-out before opening, and was awarded the Hackman Theatre Award’s Best Special Effect of the Year.
For the first time in 50 years … The glorious Wet Hot Beauties presents Sirens, a fantastical 1930s & 40s inspired Water Ballet with a cheeky modern twist as part of the Auckland Fringe Festival 2011.
Water nymphs as you’ve never seen them before. Watch and be amazed as seventy salty seductresses lure mighty sailors to their doom. Broken-hearted and hungry, these mermaids from the deep will not be satisfied until they have what they want – men!
Based at the historic salt-water Parnell Baths, the Wet Hot Beauties glide in spell-binding synchronicity with Art in mind. Muses with bright red smiles and pin-up chorus-girl style are guaranteed to beguile and delight you.
