Young & Hungry is looking for four up-and-coming professional Maori actors for the 2019 Y&H Tour to secondary schools, I AM MAORI.

Directed by Nancy Brunning, I AM MAORI showcases extracts from plays by Maori playwrights.

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.

Confirmed excerpts include scenes from Hone Kouka’s Waiora, Briar Grace-Smith’s Nga Pou Wahine and Astroman by Albert Belz.

About Y&H Tours:
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 New Zealand actors at the start of their professional careers.

Performed in traverse, the bare-bones 45 min show requires no lighting or sound set up and minimal set/props. There is a Q&A built into the programme. Touring 30th April – 22nd June, the tour offers eleven weeks’ full time work for emerging actors.

Available roles: two male, two female – all Maori

Rehearsals: 7 April – 29 April, 2019 – in Wellington

Tour dates: 30 April – 22 June, 2019 (see calendar)

We are looking for:
• Competency in Te Reo pronunciation
• Actors who can play a range of characters
• Can hold a tune/ sing a waiata – playing an instrument is a bonus but not necessary
• Someone who is hard working, focused and committed
• Able to do their own research on scripts and character building, and is generous and willing to play
• It will be an intensive 45 minutes of performance so physical fitness is required to maintain energy levels during the performance
• A willingness to muck in and get along are essential
