NYTC OnStage is an all-access programme - there is no audition required to be a part of the training programme, and all participants star on stage as part of the chorus. This OnStage programme is based around the production of the New Zealand Premiere of Disney's "My Son Pinocchio". The course is open to those aged between 7 and 21, and all skills required to be a part of the show (including singing, dancing, and acting) are taught through the workshops and rehearsals.
Lead roles are auditioned from within the group, and are triple-cast to ensure the maximum amount of opportunity. Cast are grouped by age and ability - ensuring everyone benefits from the training while extending our more experienced performers.
Rehearsals will be in assigned group times on Sunday afternoons, starting after our registration day on Saturday August 11th 2012.
At the end of the course, we put on seven full-scale performances of the show, featuring professional staging, lighting and sound, at the Dorothy Winstone Centre, a 790 seat theatre in Auckland's CBD.
