Well 2016 has certainly gotten off to a flyer here at Shock Therapy Headquarters! It was a lovely and well deserved break over the festival season after a bumper 2015 but it certainly feels like we have hit the ground running again.
We are extremely excited to have officially moved into our new digs, The Farmhouse, in Miami which we are sharing with our good friends from The Farm. We have been flat out cleaning, painting, designing and preparing the space so that we can have it up and running asap. We are currently planning a kick arse launch party and we plan to have classes and workshops starting very soon, so stay tuned for updates!
We are currently writing/ devising and rehearsing our brand new show Magic Garden which has been commissioned by Bleach Festival and will be performed at Robina Town Centre between 17th-20th March. It is going to be a fun show for the whole family and we are really looking forward to sharing with you.
We are also busy working on another new work Viral which will premiere at the Arts Centre Gold Coast in The Space on 1st September. We really believe in this work and we are looking forward to developing the show further through a series of community consultations.
Auditions for the Youth Theatre project at the Arts Centre Gold Coast are coming up on the 13th Feb so if you are between 16-24 years and you want to sink your teeth into a challenging and dynamic productions then make sure you come along and show us your stuff. We are pumped to be directing the project this year and we are shocked that we found a great script to work with in Flood by Chris Isaacs.
If is nice to have the creative juices flowing and to be working on such a variety of different projects. Keep your eyes open and your ears peeled for the more exciting news from the Shock Therapy Productions team very soon!
Peace, Shock Therapy Productions
