Open day for ac­tors

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - SAM SMALL­BONE

PER­FORM­ERS in the Dou­glas re­gion have plenty of tal­ent and there has been no bet­ter time to show it.

The Clink will cel­e­brate its first open day on Satur­day to in­tro­duce the new and dy­namic drama school, the Trop­i­cal North The­atre Com­pany, which will run drama classes for all ages dur­ing school terms and pro­duce new the­atri­cal work for the com­mu­nity to share.

Lo­cals over the age of six years will be able to demon­strate their tal­ent on the stage in the per­for­mance work­shop, with no prior ex­pe­ri­ence nec­es­sary.

The the­atre com­pany will be run by Laura Mu­ranty and Ni­cole Carn­aby, both pro­fes­sional drama teach­ers with ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in the per­form­ing arts.

Ms Mu­ranty, who di­rected last year’s Clink The­atre Christ­mas pro­duc­tion, is look­ing for­ward to un­earthing new tal­ent.

“We thought that the Clink The­atre needed to be more open to mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who are in­ter­ested in drama or be­hind the scenes,” she said.

“It will be a great day to pub­li­cise the new drama classes com­ing to the the­atre, in­form peo­ple about the au­di­tions com­ing up for Jack Hey­wood’s new play and seek in­ter­est for more mem­bers.

“Any­one can pop in dur­ing the day and ask about up­com­ing per­for­mances and au­di­tion dates, or to just have a look around the work­ing the­atre.

“We are look­ing for­ward to find­ing out what tal­ent lies within this great com­mu­nity of ours.”

The Clink The­atre open day kicks off at 10am on Satur­day, Jan­uary 22, and will fin­ish at 4pm.

Par­tic­i­pants of the work­shops are asked to bring a gold coin do­na­tion and BYO lunch.
