CentreStage Rolleston was set up in early 2018 after some like-minded individuals, with a passion for the performing arts, got together and decided Rolleston would benefit from having more drama activities available in the community. The vision in the next few years is to perform three times a year (two musicals and one play).
One of the proposed shows will be a dedicated CentreStage Rolleston Youth Theatre performance (performed by youth for youth). All performances offer an exciting theatre experience for audiences of all ages and those involved, and all accessible right on the doorstep. The seven members of the Executive Committee reside in Rolleston and have a wealth of experience in all aspects of theatre, both on and off stage. All have been involved in other theatre groups throughout New Zealand and they look forward to bringing a contemporary approach to the growing community of Selwyn. Their long term desire is to have a dedicated space in the Rolleston area, offering even more opportunities for the community to embrace the performing arts. Their first show, ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dream Coat’, is set to be onstage in November 2018, with auditions happening in July.
Audition information will be announced on the CentreStage Rolleston Facebook page in the coming weeks and prospective cast members will be able to register on CentreStage’s newly created website.
The group is also looking for talented set designers, builders, musicians, wardrobe assistants, lighting/sound technicians, or anyone just interested in being involved in some way. CentreStage’s mission is to, ‘connect the community through theatre’.
