Welcome to the inaugural
MainPower Musical Theatre Taster Day 2016
What does it involve?
They will be given a tour around the theatre and be shown rehearsal (warm-ups, makeup), production (costume, stage management, set design), technical (lighting and sound) and performance, aspects of the show.
The Production Team for the show will be on hand to explain each aspect of their role as will the Choreographer, Musical Director and Director.
They will then be able to sit and watch a portion of the dress rehearsal of the show. This will not be a full run of the show and their will be stops and starts.
A little about what this entails:
We at North Canterbury Musical Society along with MainPower realise that there is alot of work which goes into creating a major production such as AIDA. And we would like to include youth in learning and understanding about Musical Theatre and its production.
With the assistance of MainPower as our sponsor, we are able to provide this opportunity to school students via their schools, to join us for our first MAINPOWER MUSCIAL THEATRE TASTER DAY Tuesday 3rd May at 5.30pm at the Rangiora Town Hall.
This is invitation only with the schools. The aim of this event is to provide the students with a backstage pass to the theatre and give them a chance to see behind the scenes of a large scale musical
Thank you MainPower for funding this project:
Funding from Mainpower NZ means we can offer this to you free of charge although there are limited numbers so we need to ensure confirmation as soon as possible.
A gauge of interest in specific areas would also be appreciated. This way we can tailor your tour to suit your students.
Students will be asked to provide their own dinner and there will be a break for them to have this before the start of the dress rehearsal.
