I've Been Meaning to Ask You
The Street Theatre and Canberra Youth Theatre are searching far and wide to discover a diverse range of young people from our Canberra community. From those who do drama weekly to those that never have – we are seeking kids aged 9-13yrs to work alongside the award-winning theatre team from The Good Room, a Queensland-based performance collective who use the anonymous experiences of ordinary people to create extraordinary theatre works.
Auditioning ages: 9-13 years
Roles: Large mixed ensemble
About the Play
They asked. You answered. The next generation is about to drop some truths… and the mic! Performed inside a theatre-turned-playground-turned-battleground, this is a riotous theatrical experience full of questions asked by young people and answered by adults. Watch as age collides with experience in a revealing one-hour-tell-all that combines anonymous experiences with high-impact video design. Adults take a back seat as a powerful panel of 9-13 year olds tackle the answers they receive to the questions they’ve always wanted to know. Built in collaboration with and performed by local young people from across Canberra, I’ve Been Meaning to Ask You brings audiences both young and old together to tackle the big (and little) questions that life throws at us.
