THE Newcastle community are invited to be part of the public theatre project Hidden Port. It will explore Newcastle’s history presenting dreamtime stories, giant puppets, lanterns, multimedia projections and ghosts in an outdoor spectacle.
Curious Legends artistic director Mitchell Reese said the production would showcase Newcastle’s history, particularly in and around its working port.
“Over the last two months we’ve been busy collecting a large amount of stories, photographs and other materials to make the performance a fascinating show,” he said.
To take part in the performance members of the public need to attend one of two rehearsals on May 2 and May 3, between 4pm and 6pm. The actual performance will be held in Civic Park on May 5 at 5pm.
The free workshops to make puppets and props will be held at Curious Legends' studio at 8-10 Union Street, Newcastle West, April 29 and April 30, between 10am and 4pm.
