Auditions are open on Saturday the 6th of April, 2013 for the script The Criminal Went That Way. Auditions will run from 11am to 5pm in the Dance Studio, Building 205 Room 125 at Curtin Bentley Campus.
Due to conflicting commitments, I am currently struggling to find someone to play Feste, the Clown, in Melville's Twelfth Night. Season starts in June (22nd) and rehearsals are due to commence later this month.
Reading Phase Finalised
1) 4th playreading session went smoothly
2) evaluations done
3) plays selected for workshop phase
4) gathering of interested souls
In contrast to the other three reading sessions this one went smoothly. Maybe it’s just us getting used to things or maybe it just went smoothly. A smallish group of five arrived, we gained entry onto the space without ado, and read through three scripts. We were also able to garner written and verbal feedback about the plays and the project. Overall the feedback was encouraging with everyone finding some element they liked or disliked. But as there were no unified dislike of any one element, most of the criticism was singularly subjective. Or to put it in analytical terms, there was no triangulation of data to suggest any one factor worth investigating further.
"If it be now, tis not to come. If it be not now, yet it will come. The readiness is all. Let be" - this review comes so late,due to posting difficulties, that it has to be considered more a series of thoughts on the production at Subiaco Arts Centre, a co-production between Barking Gecko Theatre Company and WAAPA and on the great tragedy itself. I believe that the collective theatrical community of any major city must ensure that Hamlet is performed at least once every 3 - 4 years. Bell Shakespeare manages to get a Dane out every four years. Of course in London you can expect about 3 - 4 major attempts every year. Think back over Jude Law, David Tennent, Rory Kinnear or Michael Sheen in recent memory. But here in Perth we have waited too long since Raymond Omedei's commitment to the play at The Hole in the Wall which boasted Richard Dillane in the 80's and David Davies in the 90's as the melancholic prince before that wonderful Perth theatre company ceased to be.
