Developing a love of theatre in the region’s young people is one of the Playhouse Theatre’s main aims and has been the guiding force of Youth Theatre since its inception.
Youth Theatre Director for 2022 is Brayden Rewald and he is looking forward to the challenge.
“Having been in the Playhouse Youth Theatre myself I know how much fun it is, but also know how being involved from an early age can give kids confidence, build discipline and teamwork and instil a love of theatre that can last a lifetime,” Brayden said.
Youth Theatre is open to those aged between 10 and 18 years and membership entitles the student to participate in workshops held by Bundaberg Players Inc exclusively.
This year there will be two registration nights for Youth Theatre – Wednesday 23 February and Wednesday 2 March, from 6.30 pm to 8 pm.
Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the registration night. As per the current COVID-19 mandates, anyone over the age of 16 must be fully vaccinated to enter the premises and anyone over the age of 12 must wear a mask indoors.
Brayden said two groups will be chosen following the registration nights.
“There will be a Performance Cast, who will perform in our production for 2022, Freaky Friday, with rehearsals starting 9th March,” Brayden said.
“There will also be a Development Cast, who will take part in workshops from 5th to 8th April.
“Depending on ages, levels of experience and outcome from the audition process, we hope to include everyone who comes along to Registration Nights into one of these two groups.”
