David writes on behalf of the audition team: “Massive thanks to all the 63 who came to the auditions yesterday, plus the other 4 who are still to audition yet as they couldn’t get there. We were blown away by the talent on display, lots of great new members to the ensemble too. Apologies for the long wait for some. Now a certain amount of work on the draft script is required as Sleeping Beauty is wide awake! We’ll be in touch with the casting soonest !”
Interested in acting? Want to brush up your skills? Stage Door launch Academy Plus.
As a result of demand, the Stage Door Theatre Company is launching a theatre experience for adults. Known as Academy Plus, it features classes by experts in acting, character, improvisation, stage movement, microphone technique, stage make-up and more.
The first of these takes place the weekend of September 14 and 15 from 10am to 4pm at Northtec, Kerikeri. Fee is $100 for the two days.
Following the outstanding successes of Shrek the Musical and Calendar Girls, we have had interest from more adults who haven’t been on stage since school, or who never have been, but who now want to be involved in our sort of community theatre here. This is for them and for our existing adult ensemble. It’s going to be a fun learning experience.David Crewe, Stage Door Artistic Director

Yes, it will be pantomime again this December (Oh no it won’t ! – Oh yes it will !) when the Stage Door serves up another fun-filled fantasy. This year it’s that tale of the Princess who falls asleep after pricking her hand on a spindle,cursed by the wicked witch.Then she is woken up by the kiss of a Prince.
There are lots of great parts, of course. Many of which have never been heard of in the original version! Plus music and song (and a little choreography too!).
Auditions will be on 8 September, 2pm at the Turner Centre.
Performances at the Turner Centre December 13-15.

A great show, big-hearted and full of laughs—the actors put in so much energy and love.
We were overwhelmed by the lovely comments and hugs we received in the foyer after the show. Such a fantastic audience on our first night!
If you haven’t booked your tickets for this heartwarming, funny and poignant play yet, make a date with the Calendar Girls at The Turner Centre this weekend!

We’re donating $5 from each ticket to the NZ Child Cancer Foundation. And if you’d like to donate a little more to this worthy cause, we’ll have our special calendars available on the night.
We’ve got two tickets to give away for our opening night on THURSDAY 1st AUGUST at The Turner Centre.

While some photos have been taken at private residences, we have used many of the businesses as location for the photos themselves, and we’ve been blogging about each photo shoot on our website. Read our blog posts to find the business names.
Of course, if you already have a calendar, this job is even easier!
