The call is out for amateur youth actors over the age of 16 across the Parkes, Forbes and
Lachlan Shires to star in this year’s NOT A STATISTIC! Youth Driver Education Program.
“We are looking for four new actors to join our team and are holding auditions on Wednesday, 22nd June from 4pm – 7pm at the Parkes SES shed in Clarke Street,” said Melanie Suitor, Road Safety and Injury Prevention Officer for the three councils.
She said this road safety initiative had seen a 27% reduction in crashes involving young drivers since its inception more than 10 years ago.
Following two years of COVID disruption, this year’s mock crash is going to be developed into a training video. The video will replace the live mock crash demonstration for this year but will result in a resource which allows the program to be implemented in other areas and provides a back-up option for future years’ live demonstrations.
Pre-registration for the auditions is essential. Contact Melanie on 6861 2364 or Melanie.Suitor@parkes.nsw.gov.au for more information and to book your place.
