New Release - Pride and Prejudice : A Play

"IT is not only fans of Jane Austen’s much-loved novel centred on romantic manoeuvres in early 19th century England who will be delighted by this witty and excellently staged adaptation.

Audience comments at the performance I attended made it clear that people unfamiliar with the book were also having a good time."

Camel Boy From Oz Surprise

Leading Note Theatre in Ballarat had a surprise member of the cast for The Boy From Oz.

This very talented camel. In front of the camera I am demonstrating my lack of talent.

On the hump was Andrew Ronay-Jenkings just off a nine month cruise as a headline entertainer.

Well done to the whole cast and new producer Matthew Hustwaite.

Meet the DSP Double Rehearser.

Luke Zancanarro was a busy teenager during June and July.

The Sydney student was rehearsing for two DSP shows at once.

He played a power Achilles in Oakhill College's production of Paris.

At the same time he played Michael Feldman in Sydney Youth Theatre's Production of Back to the 80's.

Luke is pictured between me and Neil Gooding in front of Oakhill's Trojan Horse.

 

Meet the Brainy Tap Brothers.

Wollongong had never seen such a combination of brains, brothers and tap dancing.

What a treat for me to  see such nimble footwork from Moonglow Productions for their performance of Hot Shoe Shuffle at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre in NSW.

Five members of the cast were related. There were the  Sanderson brothers and the Bell Brothers with their real life on stage Dad.

These tappers also move quickly up top.

The lads were dancing in between studying for Doctorates in Physics and Actuarial studies.
