The GV Writers group and STAG will be presenting 10 In Ten - (ten 10 minute plays) as a part of the SheppARTon Festival on the 8 March...
And we need YOU!!
Nic Sleeth is the coordinator and liaison person between both groups.
The plays have been writing by members of the GV writers group and by a couple of STAG members (namely John Lewis and John Head at this point) and they will be directed and performed by STAG members...and this is where YOU come in.
FIRSTLY - on Tuesday 5th February at 7:30pm at The Bakehouse, Wheeler St, Shepparton, both groups will meet to read the plays out loud.
We invite anyone along who is interested AND any budding directors...you may be interested in having a go at directing a play and this is your chance! They are short plays (most only two pages long).
If you have directed before or if you want to give it a shot come along on Tuesday night. If you can't make it Tuesday or if you are unsure and want to know more...give Nicole a call on (03) 5824 3464 or Liz Zito on 0437 689 100 and we'll be happy to chat to you about it.
We look forward to either hearing from you, or being overrun with potential directors on Tuesday night.

After the success of it's first staging in December 2007, the cast and crew of John Head's short play, Prodigal Memories is returning by popular demand.
For those who missed it first time round and for those who were so moved by the premiere performance that they need to see it again, you are indeed lucky.
John Head's Prodigal Memories will return to the Bakehouse Rehearsal Complex for one performance only on Saturday February 16, commencing at 7.30pm.
The show's original cast, John Head, Aaron-David Palmer and Jacquie Pithie will reprise the roles of Jack, Jimmy and Cyn respectively. Entry will be by gold coin or small note donation.
The play is quite an emotional, raw and thoughtful piece. And, as you will see when you attend, for some it hits home pretty hard. Come and support the performers in Prodigal Memories and STAG by attending this anticipated event. You will be glad you did.
Here's a quick recap:
Prodigal Memories: Return Season

Buzz Grants For Young Australians
The Foundation for Young Australians is calling for applications from young musicians for Buzz Grants.
Buzz Grants offer flexible support for young musicians, sound artists and music-related arts workers through grants of up to $2,500.
Individuals aged 12 - 26, or groups with a majority of people aged 12 - 26 involved in a music or sound project may apply for a Buzz grant. This can be done with the support of an organisation.
In 2008 there will be two rounds for Buzz Grants. Applications to be considered in the first round will need to be received by 3 March 2008.
More information about Buzz Grants can be found by logging onto Young Australians or calling (03) 9670 5436.
Buzz is a project of the Australian Government's Young and Emerging Artists' Initiative, through the Music Board of the Australia Council for the Arts, and the Australian Government arts funding and advisory body.

We've Got Mail (And We Don't Want Some More)
Who'd have thought I could possibly fit a reference to Oliver! and a reference to a Meg Ryan / Tom Hanks movie into a headline? Well, apparently I have!
Anyway, down to business...
To try and curb the amount of emails from eager Mums and Dads flooding our email inbox (118 and counting), we thought we'd take this opportunity to let everyone know that auditions for Oliver! have not yet been held. That's right, you can rest assured that if we were holding auditions for a show it would be a) advertised on the Oliver! page of this website, and b) advertised in local papers and STAG newsletters.
The auditions for Oliver! will be held in mid February, just a little while after school goes back.
We can also let you know that the show will be directed by Rob Robson, musically directed by Steve Sargant with Liz Zito and Aaron-David Palmer providing assistance to the director. And if that isn't enough, Oliver! will also form part of Riverlinks' 2008 subscription season, which is to be launched early this year. Obviously this will leave us all wanting to know who will buy these wonderful tickets?
Stay tuned for more Dickensian updates as the come to hand.
