Young PMG actors win awards
Winners of student actor awards have been announced by the Moresby Arts Theatre (MAT). The actors participated in MAT’s recent Youth Arts Programme (YAP) where 500 year-9 students learned about important social issues from local NGOs and then performed short plays about them. The acting lessons were provided by drama teachers at the University of Goroko. The three winning 5-minute plays will be performed at the MAT Annual Dinner on November 18.
The Annual Dinner will also feature awards for the best performances by the MAT theatre company, an auction with items valued up to Kina 10,000, singers, dancers and a range of entertainment. With the Dinner’s theme of “Heroes and Villains” it is anticipated a lot of people will don costumes of all their favourite good guys and bad guys, be it Donald Trump, Batman, Wonder Woman, Hermione Granger, Nelson Mandella, or Malala Yousafzai … there are thousands of choices to pick from. Prizes too for the best costume.
