The soon to be launched MURRUMBURRAH DRAMATIC SOCIETY (which falls under the umbrella of the Harden Murrumburrah Arts Council) are looking for those interested in acting, and/or being assistants, for the production of a locally written play set in the 1800’s.
It will be directed by Rob Provan, who has produced many successful plays and who is also a highly accomplished actor.
If you wish to apply you must be very committed, preferably have relevant experience, be aged from 18 upwards, and also be able to meet on Thursday evenings. Rehearsals will be held at the Murrumburrah Courthouse, Albury Street, Murrumburrah.
Those interested please call Robin on 6386 2100 and if no one is available you are welcome to leave a message which includes your contact number.
Whether your passion IS JOURNALISM, or you wish to ADVANCE YOUR WRITING, The Murrumburrah Writers’ group can offer you guidance that will improve your skills.
We are looking for dependable, motivated individual/s who wish to develop a foundation of local historical information that offers interesting perspectives of Harden and Murrumburrah. These would be used as background information by journalists’, should these be required. In addition, those interested will be taught how to write press releases to increase media attendances at large events such as the launching of Carl Valrius’ sculpture of Bill the Bastard. Relevant information will also be made into booklets suitable for tourists. And, if the incumbent/s are interested, on occasion, there may be opportunities to write free-lance articles.
Whilst this opportunity is only intended to offer beneficial experience and is not a fully-fledged course, those interested will be led by a former journalist/Editor.
Journalism, although fast-paced and deadline-orientated is an extremely interesting and rewarding career and according to recent Australian Government data, as many as 11,000 journalism-related jobs are expected to become available by May 2022.
The Murrumburrah Writers’ Group meets on the fourth Thursday of every month and the next meeting is on May 27, 2021, from 6 pm to 8 pm at the Murrumburrah Courthouse, Cnr. Vernon and Albury Streets, Murrumburrah. If you’re interested, please call Robin Cooper, Managing Director/Editor of the Murrumburrah Writers’ Group on 02 6386 2100.
