Spot­light on ef­fects of change

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Tay­lar Amonini

A for­mer New­man res­i­dent is ex­plor­ing how one mo­ment can change ev­ery­thing as she man­ages Melville Theatre’s lat­est play in Perth.

Michelle Sharp will be the as­sis­tant man­ager of Di­ana Son and Vanessa Jensen’s Stop Kiss, a poignant and funny play about the ways, both sud­den and slow, that lives can change ir­re­vo­ca­bly.

With a life­long love of theatre, Sharp said she had some ma­jor chal­lenges ahead of her as she was also act­ing in the play as a nurse.

“The chal­lenge is keep­ing the tran­si­tions smooth be­tween do­ing what we need to do back­stage with cos­tume and set changes and then switch­ing to be ready to go on­stage in char­ac­ter,” she said.

“A big draw­card with this show is I get to act and be part of the crew, so it’s the best of both worlds.”

Stop Kiss plays at 8pm from Septem­ber 8-23. Visit meltheco.org.au to re­serve tick­ets.
