BWW Previews: ONE ACT PLAY FESTIVAL 2018 at Dolphin Theatre Onehunga Auckland
Get your act together to attend the Dolphin Theatre's 2018 One Act Play Festival!
The two plays and one musical on offer are irresistible with all three being written by award-winning writers; Robert Scott, Aaron Sorkin, and Lin-Manuel Miranda respectively. Dolphin have put together a menu of simply delicious entertainment!
The line up of performers alone is enough to get you securing your ticket and just skimming the cast lists, names such as Keith Marr, Bridie Dixon and Sam Iosefo catch my eye. I have reviewed them before and they are excellent.
First up is 12hr Life . Directed by Bianka Lee and Abby Lawrence the plot is intriguing; is it possible to live and entire life in one day?
Pictured left are Charlotte Robinson and Raymond Vinten in rehearsal.
The second offering comprises of one scene and four men who are tested to their limits when they endeavour to make a big budget film. Hidden in this Picture is directed by Christina Christopher. Featured below are actors John Edwards, Mike Daley, Carleen Craig, Rachel Barnhill and director Christina.
The final offering for our One Act Play Festival is the musical 21 Chump Street, directed by Zane Fleming. This contemporary musical highlights the issues of peer pressure, conformity and drug use in schools and has a stellar cast. Pictured below are: Director Zane Fleming (front), Actors: Kristin Candice Paulse, Bridie Dixon, Louise Wilkie, Jordan Henare, Keith Marr, Brandon Rhodes, Reuben Su'a, Sam Iosefo and Jahaan Nordien.
The One Acts have been a bi-annual feature at the Dolphin and are designed to foster young and emerging actors/ directors/ playwrights/ techs. Dolphin Theatre Company see the One Acts as a vehicle of opportunity for new performers to work with the more experienced. It encourages variety and showcases potential and diversity. Long may the tradition continue.
