We are Simple Truth Theatre.
We an emerging theatre company trying to make a difference. It
is our intention to work intensely with the students, not only to
give them opportunities to observe and critique theatre in
preparation for their assessments, but also to inspire the students
to actively pursue the arts. We wish to inspire the younger
generation to share the same passion for theatre at The Simple
Truth Theatre Company.
It is our goal to constantly question and test what makes quality
theatre and are always searching for the magic found in live
performance. Not only do we pursue the art of the craft but we also
value the roots of theatre and what is has to offer in the form of
storytelling and being able to communicate effectively. Because of
this we are always looking for ways to increase involvement in the
arts at all levels. As technology speedily becomes a larger part of
our day to day routine, we are losing the ability to relate to one
another socially, it becomes even more important to develop the
ability to communicate with each other. Naturally we have the
desire to work with and inspire the younger generation to
participate and find joy in the arts.
We need your help.
There is minimal funding available for companies wanting to
involve students in the arts and further theatre education at a
high school level. It is something we missed out on growing up in
small towns. This year we are returning to our home towns (and
others) to give back to the communities that helped us get to where
we are now as artists.
We tour with a show that has been tailored to the NCEA
specifications and then run workshops on communication and
conveying emotion through performance. We hope to inspire and teach
these students from a different perspective. We are a young
company. We have been in their shoes. We can relate.
Please help us on our journey!
Much love from the team at Simple Truth
