Napier Repertory Players - Auditions - After the Accident
"After the Accident" will be Napier Repertory Players' premiere Studio Production: Theatre Without Borders. It has as its theme Restorative Justice. A child's life has been ended by a joy-rider. Four years on, the parents and the joy-rider meet.
The play will be directed by Mason Price with Trevor Rose in the role of associate producer.
Performance dates are 8th to 12th August 2017.
Leon: 19 years old. Leon was driving the car that killed the child. Comes from a poor background.
Petra: Late 30s-early 40s. Petra is the child's mother and is a journalist.
Jimmy: Late 30s-early 40s. Jimmy is the child's father and is a teacher.
Mr E: any age. Prison art teacher. Mature, matter of fact. Two small scenes.
Leon's Mother: 50ish. Coarse, vulgar woman with language to match. Very short scene. The person playing this role could also be the production's Stage Manager.
Actors must be prepared to widen and enhance the skills they bring to the production. Rehearsals, which will commence in June, will concentrate on in-depth script interpretation as this play relies on an audience seeing the subtle changes of emotions and beliefs each character experiences.
It is essential that the play is read prior to auditioning.
Attention all Music and Performing Arts Teachers!
Please refer to the following aims of the Studio Productions, which offer your students a fabulous opportunity to gain NCEA credits.
In accordance with the aims of our Studio Productions the following roles are also available:
Will work with Mason Price and Trevor Rose to observe and learn the requirements of bringing a production to performance.
Trainee Lighting and Sound:
Will work with Peter Hurley to learn the intricacies of lighting and sound design. Would also need to be available to operate these systems during performance.
Musician and Composer:
This production will use a musician who is able to compose a short piece of music as the theme for the play. The musician would then be required to perform this piece live at each performance. For practical reasons the instrument used would need to be fairly portable, e.g. guitar, violin, flute
Anyone interested in reading the script or participating in the production or with any questions is encouraged to contact Mason. Phone - (06) 877 4387 or Email - firstname.lastname@example.org
