Here’s a message from Mahamati Currie about the new production for Theatre Onset:
Dear theatre friends,
In amongst the devastation in our beautiful part of the world, my thoughts turn to performance. I would like to produce a play and would like to hear from anyone interested in helping out either on or off stage. We will rehearse the play from Feb-May and perform in mid May – all over by end of May. The play is called “Abstract Expressionism” by Theresa Rebeck, an American playwright. The play is witty, biting, full of relationship with some great roles. I am looking for:
· Female 60’s
· Female, late 30’s
· Female, late 20’s
· Character, mid 50’s. Written as a black male, if necessary, the part could be either male or female, black or white (I might be wrong about this but we will give it a go).
· Male, mid 50’s
· Male, 40
· Male, 30
· Male or female x 2, mid 30’s-40’s – smaller parts
I will be having an initial read through and we can all express our interest this Thursday 16th January at Mumbulla School at 6pm. If you would like to EOI but can’t be there at that time, please call me, text me or email me. And, of course, if the weather and fire emergency turns nasty again, we will postpone. Also looking for costumiers, set designers and builders, backstage help, marketing wizards, gofers and helpers of all sorts.
May you all be safe and come through this time with joy still in your hearts,
