During January 2019 Nautilus Theatre Project is initiating a Pop Up Theatre based in the Fish Creek Railway Station shed. There are 4 events each day taking place on January 11/ 13/ 18 20/ 25.

Young Playwrights’ Workshop: Chris Wrote his fist play when he was in 2nd grade. He has written plays ever since. They have been performed in at theatres, large and small, across Australia, and occasionally, internationally. He believes that children are naturally curious, creatively ingenious verbally witty and insightful. Chris feels that encouragement in artistic pursuits like these workshops help them to grow into the articulate and expressive older people we need in our modern world.

Starting at 10:00 am and running for 90 minutes the workshops will cover character development, the construction of plot, action, comedy and stagecraft. Each participant will complete a 1 to 2-page script by the end of the workshop, which they will be able to take home. All materials are supplied. ‘Let’s hope we uncover some budding new Australian playwrights.’

This Playful Life: This Playful Life is a one-man performance by playwright Chris Dickins reflecting on a life in the theatre including hilarious disasters, hard fought successes and memorable characters. Chris overcomes a traumatic first performance as Robin Hood, writing and performing as Lawrence of Arabia in grade 5, a disastrous role in the opera Carmen, single handedly pulling down the ceiling of a church venue, eccentric actors and directors and his first major breakthrough with a 15 minute standing ovation at the 1977 NADIE Conference in Melbourne for his play, The Violin Bird.

Starting at 11:30 this is a 60 minute performance includes a Q&A session with Chris.

The Mysteries of Rufus Bummings: This is a charming reading/ performance of a script that has been performed in theatres across Australia. The title character is a toy soldier, one of five soldiers who hang from a mobile toy in the bedroom of Ruth, a girl with Down Syndrome. Sitting in a darkened garage waiting for the sale the next day Rufus tells Ruth’s story, a life filled with triumphs and disappointments, adventure, mystery and the power of love.

Starting at 1:30 this is a 90 minute play in two short acts featuring a magical script and an original soundtrack. It is suitable for the whole family.

Playwrights’ workshop (Aged 16 and above): For people of all ages. Perhaps there is a family story you have always wanted to dramatise, a funny experience, a memorable character, a short story that might work better as a play. It is hoped that this workshop will open doors for creative expression and exploration. If successful the group will continue further into the year. Who knows – perhaps some of the plays begun here might be performed one day?

Starting at 3:30: (Runs for 90 minutes)
