Child Play, the complete children's drama program - "children can do everything "




Child Players Act is expanding our activities in 2010 by presenting a play by the older graduates from the Child Play program. This group is Teen Play and is made up of young people aged 14-19 who have graduated from Child Play and have also had considerable stage experience with other companies and school productions.

The first production by Teen Play is the fantasy play Mort adapted by Stephen Briggs from the book by Terry Pratchett. This exciting new production of Mort is directed by Rob Bunzli who has been involved in Canberra amateur theatre for many years as a Director, Stage Manager and Techie. Rob is assisted by BJ Anyos, the Artistic Director of Child Players ACT.

Mort is the fourth book in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. It tells the story of Mort, a clumsy but good-hearted lad who is rejected as an apprentice by even the town cesspit cleaner until Death arrives at the last minute and offers him a job. While being a very funny play, the image of Death may be a bit daunting for the very young and Mort is recommended for kids 8+, teens and adults and particularly any Terry Pratchett and fantasy fans.

Mort will be performed at the Belconnen Theatre, Swanson Court, Belconnen for only seven performances opening at 7.30pm on Wednesday 30 June and continuing at 2.00pm and 7.30pm on 1, 2 and 3 July. All tickets are only $12 with group concessions and can be purchased at the door or booked on 0410 049 834.
