Scene It Theatre Group need your help! We have a script.
We have a venue. We even have pretty posters. Now we just need to
distribute our posters, make a cool set, find cool costumes, and
light our wonderful production.
About the Play
Follow Norah through regret and out the other side.
'Flippin' Norah!' explores a life from the vantage point of
death. Regrets? Norah has them but she can't change the way she has
lived. What is a successful life anyway? Perhaps it's doing
everything you ever wanted. Perhaps it's raising and loving your
daughters. Maybe it's giving them better opportunities than you
had. Or, just maybe, it is making the best of the circumstances you
find yourself in. And what if life gets in the way?
'Flippin' Norah!' flips a life on its head. Norah has to navigate
the changing social views, not to mention possible roles, of women
since the 1940s. Watch as different actresses portray Norah in
different stages throughout her journey. Discover that the real you
- the essential woman within - is who you really are; she's always
with you and age means nothing.
About Scene It Theatre Group
Porirua-based actor Susan Holt started the group when she wanted
a way for actors to practice their craft. The group originally met
to perform monologues and excerpts of scenes. Susan also invited
guest actors with specialist skills in different areas to run
workshops with the group.
Scene It Theatre Group took advantage of NextStage Theatre's
Playfest 2016, a competition to devise a 10-minute play in 48
hours. The group got together a small troupe of women and entered
the competition. Not only were these the only women in Playfest
2016 but they also won Best Acting Ensemble. And so the 'Flippin'
Norah!' was born.
