Comedy troupe ready to shine
THE Myrtleford Commedia dell’Arte Troupe are beginning preparations for their newest slapstick comedy ‘Forbidden Love’, to be performed at Myrtleford’s La Fiera festival in May.
The play written by troupe members Kym Goodman and Kath Morgan is about the antics and mix-ups between servants and masters with a twist said to provide a hilarious ending.
“Commedia dell’Arte” is a form of improvisational theatre that began in Italy in the 16th century … it’s fast paced fun”,” Ms Goodman said.
“We are looking for one extra person to play the part of a misfit servant.
“The part is open to someone of any age and experience is not necessary.
“Our members range in age from 14 to 70, we have Aussies, Italians an Indian and a Scot, so we’re very multi-cultural.”
The troupe has been bolstered with the addition of new practice masks that were recently purchased with the help of a Community Grant from Alpine Shire Council.
Anyone interested in joining the troupe can contact Kym Goodman on 0431 329 840.
Group rehearsals are held on Mondays from 4am till 5.30am at the Myrtleford Neighbourhood Centre.
