By JESS ETHERIDGE Swapping shorts for a frock and acting out five different female characters is a new experience for Ashton Brown. The 25-year-old actor from Glenfield has been rehearsing for almost two months for his starring role in the one- woman comedy show Sisterly Love in this year's Auckland Fringe Festival. Playing five women is really chal- lenging as I'm not approaching it as a parody, I'm approaching it as though I am five different women,'' he says. Sisterly Love follows one woman's wedding day and her relationships with her mother and three sisters. The show centres around the wed- ding dress, a family heirloom supposed to bring good luck to the wearer, which goes missing. So it's not Mrs Doubtfire, you know, where someone's doing a mockery. I'm genuinely trying to make myself five very different women, especially vocally,'' he says. Ashton says softening his naturally husky voice has been a challenge. Most men can do one voice which sounds like a woman but I have to do five quite different voices spanning 30 years of age between the mother and the daughters. It's a real challenge but I'm really enjoying it.'' But girlfriend Kat Glass, 23, has been on hand to teach him how to walk in heels and develop his skills. Kat was also cast for the show, written by ME Macdonald of Grey Lynn. She will perform the 6.30pm show followed by Ashton's at 8pm. Sisterly Love runs from February 20 to 23 at Q Theatre, central Auckland. Visit sisterlylovefringe.com for more information.
