Shrew’d young things prove to be knockout performers
The talented winners of OpenCall 07 take to the stage this summer in a dynamic production inspired by The Taming of the Shrew.
OpenCall 07 was a NZ Post and Auckland Theatre Company initiative, hundreds of aspiring actors from around the country went online to audition and fight it out for a spot in Shrew’d.
The ten successful actors have proven to be a plethora of talent, flair and personality. While still in rehearsals it is obvious to all involved that Shrew’d is shaping up to be an energized and spontaneous show. Experienced director Margaret-Mary Hollins explains “The cast has thrown themselves into the play with gusto - they punch, leap, slide and fling themselves about”.
The constant flow of ideas in rehearsals has meant the script has literally been rewritten. Audiences need not fear a traditional Shakespearian play, Shrew’d is a production that is loud, interactive and full of surprises!
