Students at Yellowknife’s École St Joseph School launched a space-age anti-bullying production this week.
The Bullying Games uses real-life experiences of bullying in Yellowknife to inform an intragalactic contest designed to highlight how bullying works, and how it can be confronted.
For more on the background behind the production, read our earlier story with the young cast members.
On this page you can see photos from the show and listen to a short montage of highlights alongside interview clips with the cast.
Meanwhile, open auditions will take place at the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre this coming week for a major production due in February 2016.
Mandy Tulloch, the artist in residence who produced The Bullying Games at St Joe’s, is looking for actors, dancer, singers, and martial artists for a show entitled We Are All Connected.
Auditions take place on Monday, June 15 and Tuesday, June 16 from 3:30pm till 6pm at NACC. Come to the stage door to take part and have either a song, dance, or martial arts piece prepared (or all three, if you want).
You need to be aged between 12 and 18 to audition, and rehearsals are set to take place from August 10 to August 21 this year, Monday to Friday, from 9am till 5pm – plus some Sundays leading up to the show.
There’s no cost to take part, and you’ll be working with a professional union director.
