SMASHED

NSW Sydney / Central Coast / North Coast

Cast of 3 (2 male 1 female)

Smashed is a hard-hitting interactive multi-media performance. It uses the experience of three credible teenage characters to explore the dangers and consequences that alcohol can have on a young person’s life. The characters relationships, health, safety and career aspirations are all put in jeopardy by the decisions they make as a result of peer pressure to engage in underage drinking. The audience interact with the characters and are challenged by our facilitators to offer advice and are encouraged to discover realistic ways to deal with peer pressure. This empowers them to behave responsibly and make healthy life choices.

Smashed engages young people in a unique way, allowing them to explore the causes and consequences of underage drinking in a safe and motivational learning environment. We use emotive theatre, interactive workshops, and interactive teaching resources all backed up with robust evaluation, with fantastic results.

  1. Hello Team!
    Would love to get involved with SMASHED as I’m super passionate about education and have worked with infants through to teens over the years!
    I am an actress based in Sydney and free for the listed dates.

  2. G’day team. I’m based in Brisbane and wondering if you have any up-coming audition dates scheduled. Looks like a very positive, encouraging and enthusiastic venture to become apart of. Having a degree in theatre (Music Theatre) and having worked in both hospitality and corporate retail sectors for over a decade would certainly be a great way to combine both my experience with my passion and step into a career I can engage and flourish in.
