Toi Whakaari 2014 season of Go Solo commences

Toi Whakaari 2014 season of Go Solo commences

Grab your chance to see the next generation of performers from Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School in action as the fifteen final year Acting students strut their stuff.

Go Solo is the annual showcase of new work – monologues – all devised, written, directed, designed and performed by the third year students, with production support by the second year Technical and Management students. It’s an absolute highlight for all involved.

‘We all get to show what we can do,’ says production manager and Bachelor of Performing Arts Management student, Nicole Arrow. ‘Plus it gives everyone a really rich and memorable experience. Audiences will find it quite bold, I think.’

The 2014 Go Solo season runs from 1-11 October. Audiences can choose between the four groups of performances, or to see them all back-to-back on ‘Marathon Saturday’.

What: Go Solo 2014.

Where: SEEyD Space, Te Whaea: National Dance & Drama Centre, 11 Hutchison Road, Newtown

When: Wednesday 1st – Saturday 11th of October (no show Sunday). See the website for times.

Price: $50 Season ticket (all four groups), $15 (full), $10 (concessions & Toi Whakaari graduates), $5 (student standby/school group, if available).

Book: or phone (04) 381 9250
