Theatre op­por­tu­nity

Central Leader - - NEWS -

If you are be­tween 15 and 25 and want ex­pe­ri­ence as an ac­tor, de­signer, stage man­ager or tech­ni­cian, reg­is­tra­tions are open for the The Young & Hun­gry Fes­ti­val of New Theatre.

The fes­ti­val is a chance for up-and com­ing per­form­ers and pro­duc­tion crew to par­tic­i­pate in a pro­fes­sion­ally men­tored sea­son of new plays. The fes­ti­val runs from Septem­ber 25 to Oc­to­ber 12 at The Base­ment theatre.

Au­di­tions will be held this month and re­hearsals will start the week of Au­gust 12.

The Young and Hun­gry Arts Trust is a char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion founded in 1994 in as­so­ci­a­tion with BATS Theatre. It arose out of a need to pro­vide young peo­ple with op­por­tu­ni­ties to gain hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence within a pro­fes­sional struc­ture.

Many peo­ple who started out at Young and Hun­gry have be­come ac­com­plished theatre prac­ti­tion­ers, play­wrights and film pro­fes­sion­als, in­clud­ing Taika Waititi ( Boy), Brett McKen­zie ( Flight of the Con­cords) and Michelle Ang ( Neigh­bours).
