Sookie (Alison Hayes) provides some ‘common sense’ to Red (Ellie Bott) in the play ‘Uncommon Sense’ put on by the Euroa Little Theatre Company.
THE Euroa Little Theatre Company hit the boards on Saturday and Sunday, September 9 and 10 with two original comedies.
The cast, performing in the intimate surrounds of the Euroa Schoolhouse, were thrilled with a full house on both occasions.
‘Sir Kenneth Shortcuts’ written by Susan Bennett, was performed by both skilled and novice actors in brilliant costumes.
There were laughs aplenty with this crazy, mixed-up medieval tale with the usual goodies and baddies.
Sir Kenneth (Patricia Benedict) won out in the end by slaying the dragon and winning the heart of a fair damsel.
His faithful servant, Gerald (Susan Bennett), despite his odorous affliction, was an indispensable side-kick.
‘ Uncommon Sense’ ( written by Alison Hayes) gave Sookie (Alison Hayes) an opportunity to spread a dose of common sense to all she meets, with not always the expected or usual outcome.
With three years since a previous production, the company has put in an all-out effort to place themselves back in the public eye.
In 2015 the Euroa Little Theatre (ELT) moved from ‘The Studio’ in Brock Street to a permanent stor- age space at the rear of the Euroa Cinema.
This was a mammoth task that took much culling, sorting and storage of all costumes, props and sets in this new location.
In 2016 ELT celebrated 60 years in community theatre which in itself was quite an achievement.
The Euroa community hopes to see more of ELT and productions in the not-too-distant future.
GERALD’S SECRET WEAPON: The dragon (Mary Dean) is overcome by Gerald’s (Susan Bennett) odorous pong despite Sir Kenneth (Patricia Benedict) putting his best foot (or sword) forward.
IT FITS: Prince Charming (Ayden Cullen) fits the glass slipper on Cindy (Rachael Buerckner) under the eagle eye of the King (Jan Watters) and Tina (Annie Mitchell) his intended bride.
WOMEN’S RIGHTS: Deirdre (Alison Hayes), Anoria (Ayden Cullen) and Germaine (Margaret Watters) try to make themselves heard.
NO WAY: Gertrude (Alison Hayes) and Kenny (Ayden Cullen) haggle over the ransom money.
