One act plays de­but in Ju­lat­ten

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

CATCH but a glimpse into the en­ter­tain­ing the­atri­cal world of Ju­lat­ten when an evening of One Act Plays takes to the stage this Satur­day.

The Ju­lat­ten The­atre Group will present a night of en­ter­tain­ment, with four plays cov­er­ing a range of gen­res and sto­ries, from the trial of the Big Bad Wolf, glanc­ing into the mind of one woman, see­ing a band of en­ter­tain­ers test their friend­ship, to a fa­mous ac­tress be­ing ac­cused of steal­ing a hus­band.

The Big Bad Wolf has a rep­u­ta­tion for hav­ing been a naughty boy and the Twelve An­gry Pigs will deliberate the truth of the mat­ter, when the stu­dents of Mt Mol­loy make their de­but on stage.

The stu­dents will give a twist to the tale of the ‘‘Twelve An­gry Men’’ clas­sic, as the young­sters open the evening with the court case of Mr Wolf and two lit­tle pigs.

In­cluded in the evening is A Dol­lar, the win­ning play from last year’s one- act play com­pe­ti­tion in Ma­reeba, a satir­i­cal com­edy set in the De­pres­sion.

A band of en­ter­tain­ers who are com­pletely pen­ni­less stum­ble across $1 and face the dif­fi­culty of shar­ing the hum­ble coin.

Also on the bill is the play A Mat­ter of Hus­bands, with the win­ner of the one-act play com­pe­ti­tion’s best ac­tor award Angelique Pat­ter­son star­ring as a fa­mous ac­tress be­ing ac­cused of steal­ing a hus­band from an ev­ery­day woman.

A hu­mor­ous drama set in the ac­tress’s house, af­ter the woman makes the ac­cu­sa­tion in a bid to get back her hus­band, the ac­tress turns things around and ac­cuses the hus­band of in­vent­ing a love af­fair to make the wife jeal­ous, to rekin­dle the spark in their mar­riage.

A well- re­ceived play San­dra’s Shad­ows, by lo­cal play­wright Wynn Schiller, pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate the im­pres­sive re­cent re­fur­bish­ment of Ju­lat­ten’s Ger­aghty Park Hall, with its new stage, light­ing and dig­i­tal sound-sys­tem.

This event shows the pos­i­tive and en­er­getic col­lab­o­ra­tion among the rel­a­tively scat­tered res­i­dents of Mt Mol­loy and Ju­lat­ten that has un­der­pinned the cre­ative spirit of the re­gion.

The Ju­lat­ten One-Act Play event is this Satur­day night at Ger­aghty Park Hall in Ju­lat­ten.

A cash bar opens at 6pm and a light sup­per will be pro­vided, sup­plied by the Mt Mol­loy School P & C, and tick­ets are $15 adults and $5 school-age chil­dren, avail­able from the Nine Mile Store in Ju­lat­ten, Opal Bar at Mt Mol­loy and Mt Mol­loy Ser­vice Cen­tre.
