2017 CELEBRITY PLAY READING FUNDRAISER

 

It's back!

After the amazing success in 2016, ATYP is once again hosting a Celebrity Reading to raise money for our scholarships program.

Don't miss this super fun night in the theatre as a bunch of award winning professional actors (including some of our best-known ATYP alumni, tutors and friends) give voice (and so much more) for a sneak preview of this year’s winning ATYP Foundation Commission play, Wonder Fly.

We are thrilled to announce our line up of amazing, generous and talented celebrities who will be joining us!

Actor and singer Jay Laga'aia (Star Wars, Home and Away, Water Rats, Play School), actor Nicole da Silva (Wentworth Prison, Rush, All Saints), actor and singer Ben Mingay (Packed to the Rafters), actor Mouche Phillips (Home and Away, Playing Beattie Bow), actor Penny Cook (A Country Practice, Neighbours), ATYP alumnus and actor Ben Wood (Talk (STC), Doctor, Doctor (9 Network)actor Leon Ford (The Rover, Gallipoli), ATYP alumna and actor Coco Gillies (The Trolleys, Oddball, Maya the Bee), singer, dancer and actor Prinnie Stevens (The Voice, The Bodyguard), award winning actor Libby Munro (Noises Off, Disgraced), Artistic Director of the iconic Ensemble Theatre Company Mark Kilmurry (d: Odd Man Out, Two) and friend and alumni actor Meyne Wyatt (Silent Disco, Neighbours, Gloria).

What an amazing line up so far! We are honoured and delighted to have theses talented and generous performers take to the stage for this excellent evening of fun. 

Wonder Fly is a coming-of-age hero’s quest. The only problem is; no one’s sure who the hero is supposed to be. Set in Sydney-slash-Gotham City, the play leaps out of the world of a comic book. People are isolated, and evil preys on the spaces in between. There are bright lights and dark alleyways, just the way the Fallen Phantom intended.
 
Armed with nothing more than a box, a costume, a mask, a torch, a few eclectic superpowers and a map with a big ‘X’ on it, Wonder Fly asks the question: if we are all heroes, who does that make the villain?

Join us as this cast of rather grown-up young people turn into super heros and probably definitely mess up their lines...

*The ticket price for the Celebrity Play Reading fundraising event includes a market value of benefits that exceed the allowable ATO tax deductible contribution for fundraising events. According to the ATO for a contributor to claim a tax-deductible contribution, the benefit they receive must be no more than 20% of the value of the contribution or $150, whichever is less. Unfortunately, in this situation the benefit is valued at well over the 20% threshold and therefore we cannot provide our supporters with a tax deductible receipt for a donation.
