Roleystone Junior Workshops
14 Jun, 2014
Celeste Underhill (2013’s ‘Peter Pan’ herself!) and Bree Hartley (Roleytsone Theatre President) will be co-ordinating the 2014 Junior Workshops.
Any one aged 8 – 18 years old can participate in either section of the workshop series.
There will be two sections for participants to take part in:
• Section 1: Two Saturday sessions of fun and challenging theatre sports (June 14th and 21st – 3pm to 5pm at the Roleystone Theatre, Roleystone). $5 per session. Come to one Saturday or both!
• Section 2: Auditions and rehearsals for 2 productions to be entered into Youthfest and to be part of Roleystone Theatre’s ‘Storytime in the Hills’ production.
Auditions will be on Saturday 28th June from 3-5pm and rehearsals will be Saturday afternoons (3-5pm) and Wednesday evenings starting the first week in Term 3.
To be in the productions actors must be available to be part of Youthfest (September 20th/21st) and ‘Storytime in the Hills’ (October 6th-10th) i.e. must not be going away during the October holidays and be free the weekend of the 20/21st September. We will also need participants to be part of the staging crew/stage manager etc, rather than onstage roles so please ask about this element.
Cost will be $45 per participant and will include Theatre membership, a T-shirt and Youthfest entry fees. The workshop coordinators have chosen two one act plays that will suit the diversity of ages and skills of the children.
Those auditioning for, and who are successful in obtaining, a part in the productions will be expected to be available for all rehearsals and all performances (barring sickness).
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0402014666 to register for either section 1 (theatre sports days) or 2 (audition and productions)… or both! Once you register your details (including name, age, email address, parent/guardian name and contact phone number) you will receive a return email with all the details!
