The Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre’s newly launched Youth Performance Company “BREC YOUTH” is hosting open auditions on 20th May for the company’s performance debut of a new show called The Shoes That Sang.
The Shoes That Sang is BREC YOUTH’s first original production that will reimagine a host of fairy tales coupled with original songs. From Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson to Disney animation and live action re-makes, BREC YOUTH will create a new modern fairy tale by smashing the old ones together.
BREC YOUTH is looking for performers aged 15-25 years old to take part in this project, which rehearses between June and August with a presentation in BREC’s Cube Theatre at the end of August. The project is a unique opportunity to work with professional director Katt Osborne.
Katt is a Perth-based director who brings a wealth of experience in directing new theatre. She is currently a Black Swan State Theatre Company Resident Artist and has recently returned from working on a show at London’s Old Vic Theatre. “This project is a fantastic opportunity for young people to get involved in an exciting new show” says director Osborne. “Especially if you are interested in fairy tales, musicals and want to do something a little bit different in that field, this project is for you.”
BREC YOUTH’s artistic assistant 19 year-old local Lauren Wroth says: “The Shoes That Sang incorporates different classic fairy tales in a way that will definitely excite audiences. These opportunities to work with a professional director such as Katt rarely happen for young people in Bunbury. It will be a great experience for anyone interested in furthering their interest and skills in performing different styles of theatre”.
