Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 21st 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 22, 2009 21 Eerie tale haunts the park Sam Nicholls and Jack Mendon star in Ashfield Youth Theatre's latest production, The King is Dead. WHAT: The King is Dead WHERE: Burwood Park. Meet under the giant archway near the corner of Burwood Rd and Park Ave WHEN: 8pm on January 24 and 25 COST: Free FIONA BRADY IF you notice eerie bright lights or strange noises coming from Burwood Park after dark this weekend -- don't be alarmed. It's actually Ashfield Youth Theatre's latest production, The King is Dead. The story centres around a troubled girl called Evangeline who falls asleep in Burwood Park, letting her inner demons and angels come out to play. ''It's the first time the company have done such a large production outside a theatre setting,'' the group's artistic director James Winter said. This unusual production has been written and developed by a team of 12 young people, supported by the arts and technology company CuriousWorks. Thanks to CuriousWorks' help, the theatre group has been able to use digital technologies -- such as animation and interactive installations -- to help tell the story. ''It's quite a contemporary production,'' Mr Winter said. ''You can see what happens when you leave young people alone with some computers for a while.'' Cast member Jack Mendon, 14, of Concord, said he loved his role as the ''deceiving, plotting part of Evangeline''. ''It's been really interesting and fun and I've gained so much confidence from it,'' Jack, who joined the theatre group six months ago, said. ''I usually stay home in the holidays but this year I've got so many things to do.''
