Reporter’s Short n Sweet debut looms
As part of our reporter challenge series, reporter Rexine Hawes will take part in the Matamata Dramatic Society Short n Sweet Festival.
It’s proven that Matamata has very talented stage actors, directors and play writes.
This has been evidenced by all the fabulous stage performances at both the Matamata Musical and Dramatic theatres in town.
Another fine example of this is the Matamata Dramatic Society Short ‘n’ Sweet festival at the end of this month.
It is a collection of six 10 minute plays - written by local playwrights.
The top six plays were chosen to be performed and upon completion of the festival, one will be announced the winner.
It’s a great event to get along to and show your support for the arts in our community.
Colin Kemplen challenged me to be part of the festival - and since I have never been on stage in my life - a challenge is absolutely spot on.
I have a small role with few lines in a play written by Colin Kemplen.
I have my lines memorised - tick. I turn up to every rehearsal - tick. So far I am doing okay. However, I have no idea how to actually act, and I feel like the proverbial fish out of water.
