Please watch and share our youtube clip – many of the highlights of the show are there. A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Shakespeare at the Tanks 2012. Enjoy.
Hi all! Grant writing frenzy at the moment – but I thought it wise to quickly divert my attention to this Tropical Arts blog site to let you know that we have solid dates now for our production….
Tuesday the 15/10/2013 is our dress rehearsal (also preview) and
Saturday the 26/10/2013 is final performance
Stay tuned for the details…
Also – see the post immediately below for our ensemble training… bookings coming thick and fast, please confirm your place. Workshop participants are definately hot favourites for roles in ensembles!
Also – working on two pieces for the FNQATA One Act Play Festival at Malanda on the weekend 26-28 April – that’s soon! Who’s keen to come and support us? We are also still looking for a performer for one play. First time Director, Douglas Robins has opened it up – any one of any gender or age (if underage, with parental permission) or persuasion may apply – inclusive approach!
Also, Theatre of Exchanges workshops, Lead by Willem Brugman (0434 594 674) are still on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings – food for the performer with a wish to access deeper aspects.
Tropical Arts – pathways into theatre…
This year we have decided to tackle another, slightly “lesser known” comedy, with a title that has become a part of the lexicon. “All’s Well that End’s Well” is about the folly of youth, the frustration of age and the triumph of commitment (or perhaps obsessive persistance/underserved love?). Well, at least that’s how we begin…
I have attached the full script in a format you may be able to print out – otherwise go to http://shakespeare.mit.edu/allswell/full.html this link and download onto your Ipad or tablet to save trees.
Have a read. See what you think..
At the close of 2012, Tropical Arts Association Inc has had an AGM, Christmas Party and we are now awaiting the DVD of our production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The show was very well recieved by our audiences and it was the largest and most ambitious so far in terms of cast and partners. There were up to 85 in the cast (varied from night to night!) aged from 4-74 with 12 paid professionals, 25+ school students, 22+ performers with a disability and a great range of talented community actors. Backstage was just as diverse and exciting.
Tanks Arts Centre, Song Connection and ARC Disability services came along with us for the ride and we made sure there was a place for almost everyone who showed up, no matter how close to the production. Please enjoy the photographs to see just how colourful and happening it was.
