Over the Top – An ANZAC Play

By | May 24, 2015

_H4A9727CONGRATULATIONS to the Cast and Crew of Over the Top, written by Amanda Jackson and directed by Daniel Betty. This play was performed at the Napier City Council Chambers and toured to schools in Napier in April 2015. On ANZAC Day the cast and crew attended the Napier Dawn Service and then met with members of the Napier RSA for a cuppa and chat afterwards. the play was so successful, it was nominated then shortlisted for a Ministry of Youth Development Youth Week Award but sadly missed the final cut.  We are so proud however of the incredible work that went into this fantastic show that paid tribute not only to those young people who signed up to serve but also the families left behind. The show highlights the strained relationships and misconstrued message that Wartime brought to New Zealand.
