Wishing NORPA success as they kick off their 2015 season
Editorial from The Northern Star's entertainment editor, Javier Encalada:
I am awaiting the announcement of the NORPA Season 2015 tomorrow with great anticipation.
It is a very exciting time. The free launch is always a great way to start the NORPA year with a nice community event.
NORPA is a not-for-profit organisation led by a management committee of local professionals, run by a small team of theatre and venue professionals, and supported by a large group of volunteers.
They also manage the Lismore City Hall, on behalf of Lismore City Council, as a venue for hire as well as a space for many different community gatherings.
Since its inception in 1993, NORPA has become part of the conversation defining contemporary Australian performing arts and storytelling. It is proof that small towns have big scope for creativity.
NORPA is one of our voices and it deserves all the support we can give it.
That's why, a day before the announcement, I pre-declare the NORPA Season 2015 a success. Now back me up, people.
