Glen Street and NIDA to celebrate diversity in Warringah

Glen Street Theatre has announced an exciting opportunity for young people to share their voice and celebrate cultural diversity in association with the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA).

Voices of Warringah is an innovative theatre project nurturing the experiences and sharing the stories of young people from Warringah. Led by theatre director and NIDA Lecturer in Acting Kristine Landon-Smith and renowned composer and writer Felix Cross, the project will fuse verbatim stories, scenes and characters devised by young people and inspired by real life events and experiences. NIDA_logo

Glen Street Theatre and NIDA are looking for enthusiastic and reliable Year 7–9 students who are interested in drama to create this unique performance. The project will be devised from their stories and experiences and will use each and every language and cultural heritage from the performing ensemble.

Students are encouraged to audition through fun workshops, which will be held on Saturday 3 May and Saturday 10 May. The workshops will include theatre games, improvisations and story telling techniques. 

Twenty students will then be selected to commit to creating this exciting work together over a period of six months. Rehearsals will take place every second Saturday afternoon from May to October and the devised performance will be presented at Glen Street Theatre on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 October.
