The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SHOWS -

pro­duc­tion of the Dis­ney hit Camp Rock on the Gold Coast this week is de­signed to in­spire and pro­vide op­por­tu­nity for dis­ad­van­taged and young peo­ple to hone their per­form­ing skills. The mu­si­cal the­atre pro­duc­tion gives young peo­ple from di­verse cul­tural and eco­nomic backgrounds a chance to work along­side per­form­ing arts in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als, who will con­duct work­shops, pro­duce, di­rect, chore­o­graph and stage man­age the show. The show’s di­rec­tor and mu­si­cal di­rec­tor is Matthew Nut­ley, with chore­og­ra­phy by Ben Veitch (pic­tured). The pur­pose of the pro­duc­tion is to raise aware­ness of the young­sters’ am­bi­tions and they hope to at­tract spon­sors from among the VIPs who at­tend its per­for­mances. The long-term goal of the project is to pro­duce a full mu­si­cal the­atre pro­duc­tion each year and to cre­ate on­go­ing an­nual work­shops to co­in­cide with the pro­duc­tions. . Camp Rock opens to­mor­row at Coomera TAFE au­di­to­rium. Per­for­mances will be held to­mor­row and Satur­day at 7.30pm and mati­nees are sched­uled for Satur­day and Sun­day at 3pm.
