Grade 9-12 PPP Film Auditions

Hello Students of NIS,
Are you enthusiastic about drama, do you have a hobby in film making or do you just want to be a part of a fun event? Well then the perfect opportunity is coming up.

My name is Kostya Tyoschin and for my PPP I will be creating a short film. I need actors therefore I need a cast and crew. There are five roles and two positions for crew members.

If you are interested in being an actor or crew member please come to the black box at lunch on Tuesday Oct 6th after the holiday to get an extract to audition. The auditions will then be after Trip Week on Oct 19th.

If you have any questions please e-mail me at:
