Y&H Tours 2019 – I Am Māori

Organisation: The Young and Hungry Arts Trust

When: 30 April – 21 June, 2019

Regions: National

Target Audience: Secondary

Discipline: Drama

Type of Event: Performance

Contact: The Young and Hungry Arts Trust(info@youngandhungry.org.nz)

In the 50-minute no-tech programme brought directly to your school by Y&H Tours (A Country of Two Halves, OUTLIERS), I AM MĀORI showcases extracts from plays by Māori playwrights.

We are thrilled to have Nancy Brunning (Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāi Tūhoe) as the director and dramaturg of what will be another excellent show for your Drama and English students.

Nancy is an actress, writer and director who has won awards in film and television and has made a major contribution to the growth of Māori arts, including acting as a dramaturg for some of New Zealand’s most celebrated Māori playwrights.

Nancy says she would aspire her storyteller super power to be matakite/seeing into the future. “Ki te kahore he whakakitenga, ka ngaro te iwi - without foresight or vision the people will be lost”.

The programme will touch on topics such as family issues, politics and land rights, with a common thread being ordinary people doing extraordinary things to change their world, no matter who they are or their background. It is the connection to their culture that gives them great strength to fight their battles and find the hero within.

I AM MĀORI will be touring schools around New Zealand from April 30th to June 21nd.

The programme will feature at least one extract from a playwright on the NZQA prescribed reading list, with all extracts confirmed by early term 1, 2019.
Booking information and a proposed tour route are now available on the website. Booking enquiries can be made directly via me, Natasha at production@youngandhungry.org.nz or 04 385 8227

Stay tuned for more information being released in the coming months.
Curriculum support

Along with the performance at your school, your booking includes a study guide with:

• A master script
• Playwright bios and play synopses
• a digital filming of the work which can be accessed anytime throughout the year after the performance (available in July),
• notes and information from the creative team,

Y&H Tours (Formerly EnsembleImpact: A Country of Two Halves, OUTLIERS)
Y&H Tours takes New Zealand theatre to secondary schools, universities and youth theatre groups around the country. Created to support the drama curriculum, it showcases a themed collection of New Zealand playwrights, tells New Zealand stories, addresses issues that are relevant to New Zealand youth, and employs young New Zealand actors at the start of their professional careers.

Performed in traverse by four young professional actors, the show requires no lighting or sound set up. It is ideally suited to Drama students in years 10 -13 and has a Q and A built into the programme.

Tim Bray Productions 2019 season

Organisation: Tim Bray Productions

Where: The Pumphouse Theatre, Takapuna, Auckland

When: 2019

Regions: Auckland

Target Audience: Primary

Discipline: Multi-Arts, Drama, Music

Type of Event: Performance

Contact: Tim Bray Productions(info@tbp.org.nz)

Tim Bray Productions is delighted to announce its exciting season of children’s theatre shows for 2019. The company is entering its 28th year of bringing entertaining and educational theatre experiences to young people and next year’s line-up is sure to be enjoyed by young and old.

The season kicks off in April with a favourite Kiwi story - The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate by Margaret Mahy, which is a rollicking and funny pirate adventure. The show tells the story of Sam, an ordinary man who wears an ordinary suit and who works in an ordinary office. But his mother is an extraordinary mother – she’s a pirate and yearns to see the sea again. Hilarity ensues as they head to sea together with lots of opportunities for audience involvement.

Next up in July is the much anticipated We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury that has become a classic chant-aloud tale. Follow and join in the family’s excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!

For September/October audiences will enjoy The Little Yellow Digger, which is based on the series of children’s picture books about The Little Yellow Digger by Betty and Alan Gilderdale. When the little yellow digger gets stuck in the mud, a range of bigger diggers are sent to finish the job with entertaining results. Stories featured in the show are The Little Yellow Digger saves the Whale, The Little Yellow Digger at the Zoo, The Little Yellow Digger, The Little Yellow Digger and the Bones, The Little Yellow Digger goes to School.

December sees the return of Tim Bray Productions’ beloved Christmas story, The Santa Claus Show ’19. It tells the tale of Kelly and Alana who are best friends and decide to write to Santa Claus. But Kelly sends the longest list of things that a child wants for Christmas that Santa has ever seen. Santa flies Kelly to the North Pole so she can learn for herself the true meaning of Christmas.

Each show will take to the stage at the Pumphouse Theatre during 2019 with both an education season during the last week of term and a school holiday season for two weeks. Performance times are 10:30am and 1pm daily for education performances and 10:30am and 2pm for school holiday’s performances. There are also New Zealand Sign Language interpreted performances and audio described performances available for each show.

A Teachers Resource Guide packed with cross-curricula classroom activities to do before and after your visit to the show is available for each show and a special ticket offer with one free teacher's ticket per 10 students. Enhance your class or school’s visit to the show with a Theatre Workshop. Now available with drama, literature and art activities, Q & A with Tim Bray (diary permitting) and cast, and a backstage tour.

Contact: Musical Futures(info@musicalfuturesinternational.org)

We are very pleased to be able to announce that there will now be three days of training for “Musical Futures” in 2019 and for the first time these will be held at two different venues.

The first is at Long Bay College on Friday 5th and 6th April and the second at Waiuku College on Monday 8th April.

It is great that nearly 100 New Zealand teachers have already had been involved in training over the past two years with all being extremely positive about the benefits they have gained from the course and also the resources that they have been able to use immediately with their classes. Several teachers were so inspired they followed up their training with workshops in Melbourne while another has taken a sabbatical to study this teaching approach further.

We hope to have much more primary and secondary music teachers involved in the training next year and also that those who have already had training may enjoy the “recharge” day on Saturday 6th April.

Unitec Shakespeare Season 2019

Regions: Auckland

Discipline: Drama

Contact: Unitec(pasa@unitec.ac.nz)

2019 will see another excellent season of Shakespeare plays performed by the graduating students of Unitec’s Acting for Stage and Screen programme. Seating for our school matinees is limited so book now…

TWELFTH NIGHT Directed by Rita Stone
Twelfth Night was written to take place for the traditional festivities set for 12 nights after Christmas when a 24-hour party allows chaos to reign. A king and queen are identified because they find a pea or a bean in their cake and not all is what it seems. In Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night cross gender disguise, passionate pursuit of hidden identities and a sense that desire does not always find its satisfaction makes a timeless comedy; woven through with wisdom and pathos.

Wed 5 June @10:30am
Thu 6 June @10:30am

ROMEO & JULIET Directed by Elena Stejko
To simply call it the most famous love story of all time is to neglect the aching sadness and exposing of human foolishness that is in the heart of the timeless Romeo and Juliet. Through the tragedy of the lovers’ brief lives we learn once again that tender shoots of romantic love can be destroyed by parental neglect and vindictive refusal to heal, to forgive, to accept. Beauty and grief embrace and the poetry of the greatest dramatist leads us toward the light.

Wed 12 June @10:30am
Thu 13 June @10:30am

VENUE: Unitec Theatre, Entry 1, Carrington Rd, Mt Albert, Auckland
COST: $5 per person (inc GST)

This year The Royal Family is holding a FREE Community Hip Hop Dance Programme (40 weeks) in Otara, Papakura, Mangere, Otahuhu and Manurewa

During the programme students will learn a series of dance routines, techniques, styles and choreography. They will also work towards, and audition for, a showcase in October at the Vodafone Events Centre choreographed by Parris Goebel.

This is a great opportunity for students to gain experience as a dancer/performer if that is something they are working towards or it is an amazing way for them to keep fit and build confidence in a fun, supportive environment.

Classes run each week day (during the school term) from 4.30pm - 5.30pm and we provide free shuttle bus pick up (from select locations in the communities) and drop offs back home or to the nearest train station.

Pop music’s most in demand choreographer, Parris Goebel is the woman behind Justin Bieber's ‘Sorry’ video and the choreography for Sam Smith’s ‘How Do You Sleep?’ and Rihanna’s ‘Savage X Fenty’ runway show. She is also the curator of New Zealand’s entertainment and cultural programme for Expo 2020 Dubai and wants to give the youth of New Zealand a chance to showcase their talents at the world’s greatest show.

From New Zealand to Dubai, Parris Goebel’s ‘Voice of Youth’ will be an opportunity for singers and dancers between the ages 16-18 to perform at Expo 2020 Dubai in a show celebrating our youth through song, dance and spoken word.
