Description

Tucked away in his quiet attic, his only companions are the characters he has created in his stories. And then one day, Bambert decides to set his stories free, to send them out into the world on little balloons in the hope that they will find a home.

The stories contain instructions: whoever finds them should return them to Bambert, postmarked with a stamp from wherever they landed, so he knows where they should be set. But as each day passes and no stories return, Bambert’s hope begins to fade. Will his stories ever find a home?

Since its premiere in 2016 Bambert’s Book of Lost Stories has charmed audiences across the country and around the globe. This special return season of our Helpmann Award winning production brings Bambert home to Perth once more.

A reminder of how stories connect us to the world and ultimately, the power of kindness.

Description

THE magic of Cinderella will cast a spell on you this October as the Wembley Theatre Company brings the classic fairytale to life as a pantomime.

Written by Tony Nicholls and directed by Bryce Manning, the show takes the traditional story and mixes in a range of extraordinary characters including a stepmother full of malapropisms and an unlikely fairy godmother.

Thrown into the mix is a range of jokes, slapstick, puns, songs and laughter as Cinderella journeys from her downtrodden existence to princess life.

“Tony Nicholls’ pantomimes never stray far from the expected plot structure we’re all familiar with,” Bryce said.

“While we know we are watching Cinderella, Tony includes sub-plots, sub-sub-plots, songs and a myriad of characters that make us laugh and cry – but never distract from what we all know will happen.

“The challenge for a theatre director is to find a heartbeat in the script.

“It normally takes four or five rehearsals before the cast is clear and confident with the direction I am taking them.

“It’s then they take ownership of their characters and the play and each actor starts the process of playing a part in this living, breathing thing called theatre.”

Involved in acting, directing and theatre teaching since 1984, Bryce trained as an actor at the University of Western Sydney before moving back to Perth to start his teaching career.

He formed the Wembley Theatre Company in 1996 and has been producing, directing, writing and acting in the company’s annual productions for the past 24 years.

The company has seven pantomimes it performs in rotation and last staged Cinderella in 2014.

“This year’s production will be vastly improved,” Bryce said. “We have new LED lights, stage microphones, stunning new costumes and an impressive smoke machine.”

Cinderella plays at 7pm October 16, 23 and 30 and 2pm October 17, 18, 24, 25, 31 and November 1. Tickets are $17, $12 concession – book at www.trybooking.com/BLKAD.

The pantomime is showing at the Wembley Community Centre, 40 Alexander Street, Wembley.

The Boys in the Band

A deliriously delicious, bitingly bitchy, groundbreaking gay play comes to Perth!

  • Dates:4th - 7th and 11th - 14th November 2020
  • Time(s):7:30pm. Matinees on 7th and 14th November at 2:00pm.
  • Venue:Dolphin Theatre

Details

  • Hosted By:GRADS
  • Venue Address:35 Stirling Highway, Nedlands WA 6009
  • Ticket Price FROM:$25
  • Ticket price TO:$35
  • Event Venue:Dolphin Theatre
  • Performing Arts:Comedy,Theatre

Description

Award-winning director Barry Park is at the helm of the forthcoming GRADS’ production of Mart Crowley’s groundbreaking smash hit play THE BOYS IN THE BAND, which will be staged at The Dolphin Theatre, UWA from 4th to 14th November.

After half a century, back on stage will be the camping, the fighting and laughing and crying, Mart Crowley’s insightful portrait of gay friendship as both endurance test and saving grace.

One of the first productions to put gay lives front and centre, it is about a group of entertaining, angst-ridden, openly gay men who gather for a friend's birthday - which goes horribly wrong.

‘This play has a wide appeal,’ Park says, ‘as it is an engrossing, character-driven story. Older audiences will be reminded about how different attitudes and values were in the 60s, while those who are younger will be intrigued to see how difficult it was to be gay 52 years ago. Many will recognise aspects of themselves in the play, as essentially the play is about how people relate to one other. ‘

Fifty years after it first opened, THE BOYS IN THE BAND finally made it to Broadway, a production that won the Tony Award for best revival, directed by Joe Mantello with a cast that included Zachary Quinto and Jim Parsons. A new film version of the play featuring the entire Broadway cast is on Netflix in September.

Be sure not to miss the rare opportunity to see this deliriously delicious, bitingly bitchy, groundbreaking gay play, which has not been performed in Perth for years!

Tickets are $35, $25 concession (groups of 8+, pensioners, students). Book at: https://www.ticketswa.com/ Enquiries: [email protected] Phone: 08 6488 2440 Call between Noon and 4pm on weekdays. The Dolphin Theatre is located within the University of WA with entry from Mounts Bay Road or Hackett Drive. Parking is free. The production is by arrangement with ORIGIN Theatrical on behalf of Samuel French Inc.
