Editorial February 2010

Monday January 18 2010

A new decade begins , what do we call these ? The teens ? What ever it is called we are looking forward to see what it brings.

We are starting it by taking an Impov show to the Adelaide Fringe Festival called Those Who Did and Those That Didnot, its constructed around Australian stars in Hollywood. We are also competing in a theatresports show called the Clash of the Titans. After teaching it for so long can we revert to playing again, we are glad its in Adelaide so most of you will be at work in WA.

The other good news is Deckchair Theatre Company is running an Adult session of Theatresports in March so if your interesting in playing or watching get in contact with Deckchair.

Most of all we are looking forward to getting back into schools and we have some exciting projects flagged for the year . We have a tour of the Great Southern early in the year followed by many of our usual schools. Later in the year we have been tentatively booked by a school on the South Island of New Zealand. It also looks like we will be back in Hong Kong in November.

Just to remind teachers in Senior Schools that our program is endorsed by the Curriculum Council so if you have students that need credits towards graduation we have the program for you.

Last year we had a team of Hong Kong students compete in the Snr FOTS cup, they are busily trying to organize a return trip for this year, which will be fantastic. Put the dates in your diary for the competition relevant for the age of your students:

Snr FOTS CUP years10 to 12, Jnr FOTS cup years 8 to 10, and the AITS Cup for years 6 and 7

Have a good year and decade
