Everybody Cool Lives Here are bringing Wake Up Tomorrow back...this time it's quite a bit different. Audience's will still journey on a plane (inside the safety[?] of a theatre) but the direction's changed and we're still not sure where we're headed.

Active are back, along with some fresh new talent, as well a greater understanding of what it means to put on a show. Their ideas have been bubbling away since March last year and they're ready to bring it once again.

Active is a youth vocational base for 17-25 year olds with an intellectual impairment. These are some of the coolest (if not funniest) people Everybody Cool have hung out with, and you need to meet them!

Our team of theatre mentors have working to support creating confident young people ready to lead the transition into adult life... as well as put on the most amazing show you've ever seen.

We've jumped on-board the Fringe Festival bangwagon, even picking up two of last year's best talents - Simon & Izzy, who took out CreativeNZ's Fringe award for 'Most Original Concept' and the Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards 'Most Original Production of the Year' for their show "Dinner with Izzy and Simon".

Circa's even opening the door to let us into one of Wellington's premier venues CIRCA One... Let's see what happens when they let the youth go wild.

We need your support, for the final push. Whether it be telling your friends to come along or chipping in so all the hours of work our mentors have invested means they can feed themselves and continue to make new fun and exciting work.

  • MULTI-TALENTED STAR

    31 MONTHS AGO

    Our team's so lucky to have Duncan Armstrong in the room. Last year the story focused around his character Nathan, this time he's taking a step back... only to step forward and show some of the magical moves he's got on-stage as Michael Star! As Duncan transitions out of ACTIVE we're sure he's stepping forward into a bright and sparkling future as a professional performer.

  • AMAZING OUTCOMES

    31 MONTHS AGO

    Not only are the performances on stage amazing. Last year one of the outcomes included one of our emerging actors' Michael Hebenton getting a job at ACTIVE. Michael's continued to build on the supportive partnerships that were forged last year and he's an amazing asset to have working in the room now with a deeper understanding of each of our team.

    Our Production/Stage Manager Lucie Camp and Director Isobel MacKinnon are two of the amazing women that have made Wake Up Tomorrow a reality. They've been constant supporters of the youth throughout the process, working their hardest to make sure the youth feel safe enough to really shine.

  • Cutting out waste

    32 MONTHS AGO

    This is wood in it's third life, it first saw audience's in the stage spectacular that is the World of WearableArts, made an appearance in last year's #RaucousCaucus2014 and is now set to grace our poster campaign, all it needed was a lick of paint...

    Putting everyone's ideas in to the melting pot can be one of our hardest tasks when there's so much amazing content to choose from.

  • This is how we launched it...

    32 MONTHS AGO

    This year the launch of the New Zealand Fringe Festival happened to coincide with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, what better way to celebrate our new beginnings than partying in Midland Park.

    This is how we launched it...
