In the first week of the June holiday workshops of 2017, Speak Up Studio will be hosting a mid-year production of Roald Dahl’s play “The Witches”!
The Witches is a week-long workshop, with rehearsals held each day for an entire week. There is also a rehearsal before the performance on Saturday. We will be holding a group audition for parts on Thursday 22nd June from 4.00pm – 6.00pm at the Red Hill Studio. This is not a formal audition, but a chance to for the students to meet the others in the production, get to know the teachers, and be introduced to the script. During the group audition we discuss parts, and will ask students to perform a one minute monologue from the play individually – copies of monologues will be emailed out at the beginning of June. All students who audition for the production will be given a part. The production will be held across two venues and due to limited seat availability, and increased venue hire costs we have decided to ticket the production. Tickets will be available for purchase in early June. Tickets will cost $11.00 for adults and $5.50 for children.
This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about the whole experience of being involved in a large production and develop their confidence performing on stage! We encourage children of all experience levels to join us for our mid-year production. See the details below for rehearsal dates & times and how to enquire!
