A group of sixty-four young performers from across the region have been given the opportunity to take part in a new production, I’ve Been Meaning to Ask You.
Produced in partnership with The Good Room, the production will be centred around children asking questions that are answered by adults.
The whole community is encouraged to get involved with adults able to submit their answers to questions online here.
Artistic Director Rebecca Hutchins said the opportunity for local talent to be mentored by industry professionals provided a great opportunity for them to gain confidence and challenge themselves.
“I think it is a great opportunity for the participants to gather some new skills, work with people who they wouldn’t normally work with from other schools and there is also a mix of ages in that as well,” Ms Hutchins said.
“I’ve Been Meaning to Ask You is centred around the curiosity of children with answers collected from online responses.
“The children will be responsible for interpreting and bringing that to life with the guidance of the producers and the actors who will be travelling to Bundaberg to facilitate the whole process.”
Council’s arts, culture and events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the opportunity for local students to take part in the production was fantastic for their development in the industry.
“It is great that we can provide local up and coming actors the opportunity to be mentored and work with professional staff from The Good Room and see them become part of a very unique performance,” Cr Learmonth said.
“I look forward to seeing the production come together and encourage the community to support the production and our local talent.”
After the casting call, 18 young people will be invited to work on this project over the coming months.
I've Been Meaning to Ask You will be performed at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on Saturday, 25 September.
