Building on the success of the 2011 Youth Ambassadors Program where 20 young people from across the Northern Rivers spent a year on the edge of their seats at Norpa shows and gained special access into Australia's longest-running regionally-based professional theatre company, Norpa has created even more opportunities for their 2012 Youth Ambassadors to get hands-on experience in the performing arts.
This year's program includes workshops with actors and directors from this year's season, open rehearsals for works in progress, backstage passes and a special auditioning workshop with Norpa's artistic director, Julian Louis.
Norpa is looking for young people aged 16-26 years who live in the Northern Rivers to apply to become a Youth Ambassador. Youth Ambassadors get to see every Norpa show for free, discounted tickets for family and friends, and a year-long program of behind-the-scenes opportunities. Ambassadors learn about auditioning for plays, applying to training institutions, and gain skills from seasoned theatre professionals.
Young people who are excited about any aspect of the performing arts are encouraged to apply.
Applications close on February 29.
