Open day for actors
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.
