Makeup Artist Needed for Shrek

The upcoming HS Musical production of Shrek The Musical, is looking for some help with the makeup design and application. Ideally we are looking for someone with experience creating and applying theatrical and character makeup who can work with the cast and a very small group of student’s to create the looks required for the show. There is also a few quick changes that will require a full make-up change.

“For science teacher Douglas Kobekeaneski, there’s nothing greater than “The Hour of Desperation,” that magical hour before his immensely important, grade-devastating assignment is due. Each year, his students frantically scramble to come up with their method of escape — and this year is no exception, as they trot out a litany of outrageous excuses, including the greatest of them all: My homework ate my dog.” – playscripts.com

Save your seat for Macbeth now!

Get your ticket now to one of the most renown productions of the year! It’s only a week before the show begins.

At the beginning of November, UNIS Hanoi will be presenting the great Shakespearean tragedy, Macbeth. Directed by Theatre teacher Kristen Twynam-Perkins this production has a cast and crew of over 50 students from grades 9 – 12. Some of whom will be taking the stage for the first time.

This re-imagining of the tragedy takes us to a depression era carnival ‘freak show’ and explores the control that fate has over MacBeth’s decisions and ambition. MacBeth comes across a trio of witches on his way back to Dunsinane who tell him he will be King, from this point they control and guide all his decisions and actions until his tragic end.

Performances are Thursday November 8 and Friday November 9 at 18.30 and Saturday November 10 at 16.00 in the UNIS Hanoi Centre for the Arts. Tickets are 100,000 and are on sale at the Arts Office or during lunch and after school in front of the old canteen.

This production is one not to be missed and audiences will be immersed in the action from the minute they arrive with the ‘Freak Show’ spilling off the stage.

There are some extra special seats that will be allocated by a ticket lottery the day before each performance. Watch this space for more information on these awesome seats.

The students have all been working extremely hard over the last few months to bring this story of ambition, supernatural control, manipulation and murder to the UNIS Hanoi stage and we would love to see everyone come along to support their hard work and dedication.

Something Wicked this way comes – are you brave enough to face it?
