Help Young Actors To Be Top Girls

Project 2017-07-12 10:58:41 +1200

We are the Young Actors (Churton Park ) a kick ass group of talented young actresses aged 14-17. Who come together weekly and make some amazing pieces of theatre. We have previously worked on two original shows both being put in the NZ Fringe Festival 'Squawk' in 2016 and 'Wirecutters' earlier this year.

 

We are are now working on our showing of Top Girls by Caryl Churchill that will be preformed October this year. This is the first time we are putting on our own show as previously we have worked with our sister company, Young Actors (Wellington).

 

Top Girls is about Marlene and her promotion to directing manger of Top Girls recruitment agency. Based in Thatcher England, Marlene is a head strong women, fighting for status in a male-dominated, corprate world and is struggling to get along with her working class sister, Joyce, and niece, Angie.

 

We will be working on this show with our mentor and director Deborah Eve Rea.

We not only act, but learn all facets of putting on the show including fundrasing, marketing, design and production so that we can go on to be leaders in faciliating and creating our own projects.

 

Any donations made to our show this year will be put towards lighting, venue, costume, props and the play rights.


THANK YOU!

Thank you everyone for all of your help and support!!

We are so close to our pledgeme goal it's not even funny- but, remember we won't get any of it if we don't reach it so please if you can share the link to any friends or family that would be fantastic!!!

We have now reached the best part of the performance process, where we are all hands on deck trying to get this show looking amazing for all you guys! We are raiding Opp shops for costumes, spending almost all of our time on Dialects archive trying to perfect that accent and getting down that one line we can't seem to remember. So keep pledging so that we can get those rewards coming your way!

Lots of thanks!!
