School gets cut for Fringe
CHRIST Church Grammar School’s Midnite Youth Theatre Company is part of the line-up for Perth’s Fringe World Festival.
Directed by drama director Gregory Jones, Viva La Restoration features music by WAAPA-based composer Jackson Griggs.
The surreal musical follows the story of two artists in a black and white world who seek to restore the colour, which disappeared long ago.
Writer of the musical and Christ Church old boy Cal Silberstein said he and co-writer Thomas Owen wanted to incorporate a distinctive visual aesthetic into the play.
“We landed on the idea of a story about young artists, it grew from there,” Mr Silberstein said. “The potential for multifaceted interpretation is left in the hands of the director, and the audience who sees the finished product; that's one of the show’s real strengths.”
Bringing together an ensemble of 18 to 25 year old emerging young performers, Viva La Restoration opens at Subiaco Arts Centre Studio on February 10 for 8 performances. Tickets are available through Ticketek or the Fringe World Website.
