Com­edy troupe ready to shine

Alpine Observer - - News -

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.
