Trio of actors are creating havoc By MELISSA KINEALY Triple the energy: The trio of South Auckland actors, from left: Tuyet Nguyen, Loretta Aukuso and Olive Asi who are on stage this month in the play Havoc in the Garden. A trio of aspiring actors has been rubbing shoulders with theatre royalty. South Aucklanders Loretta Aukuso, Olive Asi and Tuyet Nguyen are all performing in the Auckland Arts Festival show Havoc in the Gar- den and have had the chance to work alongside acclaimed writer and actor Lennie James. The show’s on at the Mangere Arts Centre next week. Mr James, who lives in the United States, has been in more than 20 feature films and his writing credentials include a BAFTA nomi- nation. This latest project has him working alongside Auckland’s Massive Company and perform- ers to create stories for the play. Olive, 20, from Otara says Mr James has so much experience and ‘‘coming here and work- ing with us means so much’’. It’s been a great experience with ‘‘a fam- ily vibe’’, she says. Twenty-year-old Lor- etta from Mangere says she feels honoured to be apartofagroupof14 taking the play to the stage. ‘‘It’s been scary, we were all nervous but we are privileged.’’ Tuyet, 19, from Manu- rewa is relishing the experience and says the cast’s been doing full-on rehearsals since late January. ‘‘Everyone brings a dif- ferent flavour to the fam- ily, I love hanging out with the other members of our crew.’’ All three girls are part of the Massive Company South Ensemble who started workshopping ideas for the show in January 2009 alongside more established actors and Mr James. Havoc in the Garden is a play about five houses on a hill in Auckland. It focuses on a single act of violence and a father’s rage against himself and his life. The ensemble cast also includes: Fasitua Amosa, Scott Cotter, Wesley Dowdell, Joe Folau, Kura Forrester, Ash Jones, Beulah Koale, Miriama McDowell, Bree Peters, Nicole Thomson and Jake Toaga. Part of the Auckland Arts Festival, Havoc in the Garden is on at the Mangere Arts Centre – Nga Tohu o Uenuku from March 9-12 at 7pm. Tickets range from $25 to $39.50 and can be booked at www.iticket. co.nz or calling 361-1000.
