Council Supports Emerging Theatre Makers to Take the Stage


Friday, 10 June 2016


Central Coast Council has been working with the region’s young and emerging theatre makers to create a performance showcasing their talents.

Periphery is the latest production created by local actors, musicians, writers and directors in conjunction with Tantrum Youth Arts and developed by Joshua Maxwell – a talented young director, theatre designer and writer.

Council’s Community and Cultural Programs Section Manager, Mr Glenn Cannard, said there is only one place Periphery can really shine and that’s at The Art House.

“Periphery is an innovative project supported by Council to help develop and encourage our future artists,” Mr Cannard said.

“Being an innovative project, it’s only fitting we showcase these works at The Art House, the Coast’s newest performing arts centre.

“The cast and crew have been through a number of Masterclasses and rehearsing for months and can’t wait to show everyone their new work.”

Periphery will bring together short plays written by locals, verbatim excerpts from local heroes, short video interviews and musical interludes locally composed and performed by a cast and crew aged between 15-25 years old.

The Periphery showcase is free and will be performed on Friday 17 June and Saturday 18 June from 7-8pm.

“A special performance will be held for schools only on Friday 17 June from 11am-12.30pm,” Mr Cannard added.

“After the performance students will have the opportunity to stay for a Q&A session with the crew.”

Tickets to see Periphery are available from The Art House box office or by calling 4335 1485.

Periphery: You see them everyday, those people and places just in the corner of your eye. You might seem them on a bus to work, or having coffee in Long Jetty, they might be shopping at Westfield, or riding the carousel at the Entrance. Wherever you see them, they probably see you.It’s about the “extras” in your life. Those people and places we’ve come accustomed to seeing as part of our daily lives on the Central Coast. We don’t know their names, but these might just be their stories.
