Do you want to be an actor?

The North Coast Players, the leading English-language theater group, is looking for actors and backstage crew for the new comedy that will be shown at Sosua Bay Resort and a musical review to be held in Cabarete.

The British-American comedy/farce will be “Whose Wives Are They Anyway?” to be shown at the Sosua Bay Resort in January. The comedy is written by well known playwright Michael Parker, who has promised to visit to run a master class-acting workshop for all cast members and any others who wish to attend.

The musical theatre review is “Love…Shaken not Stirred” and will be staged in December.

Judith Fox-Hogg, producer of both the comedy and musical, says they are looking for musical talent in the form of singers and possibly dancers.  The review will be directed by Linda Love, who directed “Wait Until Dark.” The thriller was performed last year for 3 nights to over 650 at the Casa Marina Amphitheater in Sosua, funds went to Sosua Kids, AAAS (the local animal charity) and Island Impact Ministries.

Auditions will be held on Saturday, 9 October at 10am onwards at the offices of West Indies Real Estate at Calle David Stern 6, El Batey, Sosua, next Saturday 9th October at 10am onwards. Fox motivates amateurs to join. “When someone joins us with no background in amateur dramatics, our combined experience comes in handy for teaching the art of performing, with quite a few of us already having acted in shows before.  We can boast of professional actors, directors, lighting, sound and stage designers,” she explains.

A Wonderful Start to Theatre on the North Coast, Dominican Republic

Entertainment on North Coast Dominican Republic

"Wait Until Dark" is well received

North Coast Players recently opened their first Season with “Wait Until Dark”, a tense thriller. Playing to around 650 people over three days, the sponsors of this first Play and the audiences felt the production was professional, crisp and an excellent attempt, as echoed by this positive review:
"This was a wonderful attempt by a group of amateur-dramatics
enthusiasts that clearly showed how much effort they had put into
creating a professional performance. The décor and lighting were
excellent, though unfortunately the radio microphones sometimes
produced a lot of distortion and you had to listen carefully to
understand the dialogue. But this was just a small technical hitch. The
cast and crew deserve our praise for all their efforts, and we look
forward to watching their future productions."

Sosua News   25th November 2009
As well as providing pleasure to hundreds of local residents and tourists, the production raised substantial sums for three local charities, Island Impact Ministries, Sosua Kids and AAAS (Association of Friends of the Animals of Sosúa).  Each will be featured on the West Indies Real Estate blog over the coming weeks.

Dominican Republic Leisure Time

New Opportunities on North Coast

For so many that complain of having little to do on the north coast, there are now so many more options available, like the formation of the North Coast Theatre Company for the community.
Once the first Play has been performed in November in Sosúa, the Theatre Company will be on the look out for more people who are interested in considering acting, directing or even producing a play. 
The profits from the Plays that are performed will go to local charities.
Equally important and perhaps not so widely known is the intention to create a learning tool for those adults and children who are interested in the theater and wish to try and learn more about the roles of acting and backstage work. To that end, N.C.P. intends holding several acting workshops and talks on the acting and theater profession during the coming year.
In fairness it has been, as usual, hard to find people who were keen right from the start to give up their leisure time to play a role in the formation of the theater company, but with so many people feeling like there is little to do in the evenings, we are hoping that we will see many of them joining us over the months.
‘ ‘I would like to think that the first play will encourage all those with an interest to step forward and come and try out in the auditions for future productions and by that I don’t just mean acting. I would love to see potential producers, directors, stage hands, set designers and lighting people. This is about giving opportunities for all who are interested and getting as much fun out of it as possible - as it should be for a community theater such as this.’ ’    
Judith Fox-Hogg
North Coast Players
There have been many Sponsors come forward to ensure that this play starts out on a strong basis and hopefully the community will support this effort to raise money, by buying tickets for these three charity performances.
On November 21st, 22nd and 23rd at the Casa Marina Reef Amphitheatre, the first season gets off to a thrilling start with the classic play "Wait Until Dark".
