Description

IF YOU knew a secret that could shatter a bride’s dream the night before her wedding, would you tell?

That’s the premise of Roleystone Theatre’s production of Secret Bridesmaids’ Business, written by Elizabeth Coleman and directed by Michelle Ezzy at Roleystone Hall.

The popular comedy is set the night before Meg Bacon’s wedding in a hotel with her mother and bridesmaids, ready for one last night of girlie fun.

But one lie could change everything – and the bridesmaids have to decide whether to reveal a secret about the groom.

Secret Bridesmaids’ Business was made into a 2002 telemovie with Vince Colosimo while playwright Coleman is also known for It’s My Party (And I’ll Die If I Want To).

“When I was looking for plays to direct, I was particularly interested in a female-led show with complex characters and Secret Bridesmaids’ Business jumped out as being the perfect production,” Michelle said.

“The end of the show really sealed the deal because I laughed out loud when I read the script.”

The main challenge, according to Michelle, is the venue.

“It’s only the second production we’ve done in Roleystone Hall so we’re still ironing out the kinks,” she said.

“Rehearsing in the hall without the acoustic curtains we use during the performances can be difficult, due to the effect it has on sound.

“But I’m fortunate to have a cast of experienced and talented actors who can cope with projecting their voices more.” 

Michelle began directing in 2016 after taking up a position as music and theatre educator at John Curtin College of the Arts.

Since then, she has worked on numerous productions as director, vocal coach and choreographer for productions such as The Addams Family musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr and Guys and Dolls Jr.

But Michelle’s theatre journey originally began as a trumpet player, playing in pit orchestras for the musicals Hairspray and The Phantom of the Opera at Limelight Theatre, Oliver!, Mary Poppins and The Phantom of the Opera with Stray Cats Theatre Company and The Pirates of Penzance at Phoenix Theatre.

Stepping up to the stage in 2017, she has since appeared in Oklahoma!, Mort, Robin Hood: The Truth Behind the Green Tights and Lords and Ladies at Roleystone Theatre, Between Wind and Water with Agelink Theatre, 1916: A Love Story at Marloo Theatre and Sense and Sensibility at Melville Theatre.

“With Secret Bridesmaids’ Business I wanted to do something quite different than I had done before,” Michelle said.

“Previously, I’ve only directed large cast youth musicals, so a straight play with a cast of six adults is quite a change.”

Secret Bridesmaids’ Business plays at 7.30pm October 11, 12, 18 and 19 with a 2pm matinee October 13. Tickets are $20, $15 concession – book at www.roleystonetheatre.com.au.   

Roleystone Hall is at 44 Jarrah Road (corner of Wygonda Road), Roleystone.

Description

This year marks the Tenth Anniversary of a very special  event initiated by a small group of talented enthusiasts
in 2009.

Ongoing participation has given the artistic community living in the Mundaring hills the opportunity to open their studios in late October and to share their work and environment with fellow artists and visitors. 

Following a successful trial of extended opening times last year, some 27 studios and the work of 49 artists will be showcased this season between Saturday 19 and Sunday 27 October. Actual opening days are individual for each studio and their times are detailed in the brochure and on the web.  

If you can’t make it to the hills for the weekends, check and see if the studios are open to the public on the days between or perhaps by private appointment. 

The Mundaring Hills Open Studio event is a rare opportunity to experience the lives of our local artists and to gain an insight into their work environment, skills and methods. 

The open studios will give you access to art work in an incredible range of mediums – from glass and ceramics to oil paint, water colours, textiles, wood and recycled metals and much more.  

The artists too range across the spectrum – from professionals with international acclaim to those who work part time or as a hobby – and all of them want to share their creativity with you. This is an opportunity to talk to them, explore techniques, share ideas, admire art and even acquire a unique piece of local artwork.

On the trail there are also many delicious food venues, pubs and wineries and a range of picnic spots – all welcoming you to the hills environment and helping you to create a memorable visit.
