Roller Coaster – Get Involved

Love to roller skate?! Want to be in the show?!

We are gathering a community cast of local roller skaters to star in Roller Coaster as part of Bleach* Festival and skate to live music that has been composed about skating – by skaters.

There are scenes for a variety of skating styles and experience levels, from park skaters, roller derby, roller dance and people who will be a part of a ‘rink’ scene that will suit a variety of skill levels.

No performance experience required – just enthusiasm to put your love of skating into a large-scale production.

Click here to see the different opportunities to be a part of this unique production. This is a welcoming and inclusive space for all genders, identities, backgrounds and experiences. Skaters between 8 – 14 years old need an accompanying adult.

What’s Involved? 

  • Attend 1 x community workshop 1.5hrs on either of the weekends here – 15 July or Sun 23rd July. One will be in the Northern Gold Coast and one in the South
  • Attend full cast rehearsal Sunday 30 July, 3hrs at the Broadbeach Cultural Centre
  • Attend full dress rehearsal and skate on the stage at HOTA, Home of the Arts Wednesday 2 August
  • Attend Opening night performance Thurs 3rd August and at least one other show. (Ideally you’d be a part of the whole season – 3 shows! – 3- 5 August 2023)

What To Expect:

  • To have a really great time!
  • To meet other skaters and create something epic together
  • To perform on the HOTA Outdoor stage to 500 people per night.
