We have found out, a month too late, that both Fleur Saville
(Tribe’s Ruby – Series 5) and Aidan Weekes
(Tribe’s Ved – Series 4) were in the 2010 production of Christ Almighty
which ran at Wellington’s Bats Theatre
Christ Almighty is a comedy show written by Dan Musgrove and Natalie Medlock (who will be in Shortland Street in 2011). The money raised by the production which ran from 2nd-18th December went back into upkeep/maintenance work for the theatre and towards the Pike River Mine Appeal.
As with the 2009 production, Christ Almighty 2010 featured a revolving cast. The complete cast line-up was as follows: Erin Banks, Jed Brophy, Byron Coll, Ben Crawford, Nick Dunbar, Emma Draper, Phil Grieve, Sophie Hambleton, Paul Harrop, KC Kelly, Jono Kenyon, Brianne Kerr, Emma Kinane, Salesi Leota, Jennifer Martin, Ginette McDonald, Kate McGill, Carmel McGlone, Stuart McKenzie, Ryan O’Kane, Kate Prior, Jessica Robinson, Fleur Saville, Bryony Skillington, Amy Tarleton, Asalemo Tofete, Leon Wadham, Aidan Weekes and Martyn Wood.
We always knew Aidan Weekes Hannah
(Ved in The Tribe) was a cool guy, well currently he is in an advert for Tip Top
Check him out in the advert below:
He also appears in a brief scene, playing a boyfriend role, below…
He is looking pretty handsome! Shame the video quality isn’t higher though.
(The Tribe’s Ved) has been on stage recently in the production End Game
at the Downstage Theatre
The description for the production is as follows: “A twist of fate propels Alex (Dan Weekes) and his mother (Amy Tarleton) into a computer game — to face a land of mythical creatures and heart-stopping challenges. This is not going to be a typical school day. An ideal first Downstage experience for 8 to 14 year-olds.”
More details and pictures can be found on the Downstage Theatre’s website. This post has been back-dated. Full production details are below.
Here’s some news on our loveable rogue
Daniel Aidan Weekes Hannah
! (He was Ved in The Tribe series 4)…
Back in May I made three posts about Jennyfer Jewell, Ari Boyland and Amelia Reynolds featuring in short films at the New Zealand V 48 HOUR Festival. Well, I just found out today that Daniel Weekes Hannah (or should that be Aidan Michael?) also featured in an entry.
Dan appeared in Lies & Fabrications – The Martin Boyle Story, which you can view below…
Dan definitely gives a strong performance as the scattered, [slightly worryingly] pshychotic, geeky film maker. The video short you see above is also a re-edit of the original short.
The full crew involved in the production were team Cola Razzoo: Craig Johnson (BUREAU), Richard Larsen, Rose-Marie Kirkup, Nic E Lane, Ian Hammond, Aidan Michael Weekes, Elizabeth Carpenter, Rowan Pierce, Stacey Brummer and Miki Glowacki. (Infor from Bureau.
(aka Dan Weekes Hannah – formerly known as The Tribe’s Ved) is treading the stage in the production of That Face
. Dan has spent the past few years, since leaving The Tribe, honing his performance skills at the prestigious Toi Whaakari (New Zealand’s National Drama School) where he graduated from in 2009. He quickly landed a spot in this production playing the role of Henry.
The play ‘That Face’ is written by Polly Stenham, directed by Shane Bosher and is currently showing at the Silo Theatre – Aotea Centre – The Edge in Auckland until 10 Apr 2010. The full press release and cast info is at the end of this post.
A review on That Face at Theatre Review said the following: “...dazzling newcomer Dan Weekes, who makes his professional debut in the hugely challenging role of Henry, just weeks out of graduating from Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School“, looks like Dan is definitely making a great impression out there, the production has received some great reviews.
