Speaking gig at NIDA – Panel members required!

So we’re about 6 weeks from opening night for my next theatrical venture, SET the play which premieres at NIDA! Sam Atwell and I submiited the treatment for the play to the NIDA Independent Program and we were dleighted when we were one of four productions to be chosen.
Rehearsals start on Wednesday and the Marketing will hit the streets the week after.

SET is a new murder mystery that will go behind the scenes of an Australian TV soap opera with a satirical look at the glamorous world of celebrity and the cogs of the machine that makes it turn.
Its gonna be a lotta fun with a lot of audience involvement!

ABOUT THE NIDA INDEPENDENT PROGRAM:
In 2012, NIDA is looking to broaden its vision and develop a program to provide greater opportunities for artists/companies (both emerging and established) to extend their theatre practice and develop new work and theatre forms. The NIDA Independent Program will be open to the exploration of new work and creative forms as well as the re-invention of classic and contemporary texts.
