Stairs in their eyes

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

CARLISLE res­i­dent Tim Prosser is repris­ing a role he first played seven years ago as Stair­way to Heaven hits Rigby’s Bar and Bistro this month.

Stair­way to Heaven is set at the Pearly Gates as Rob­bie tries to find out why he is in limbo and what’s to come of him.

Prosser plays Gabe, an an­gel who checks new ar­rivals in to heaven.

“Dressed in his im­mac­u­late white suit, he is su­per­cil­iously prim and proper,” Prosser said.

“But he does tend to oc­ca­sion­ally em­bar­rass him­self by for­get­ting his dig­ni­fied de­port­ment, re­veal­ing both a dev­il­ish sense of hu­mour and an oth­er­wise sup­pressed wild side to his char­ac­ter.

“Hav­ing played the role be­fore, I know it back­wards and for­wards, so there are no great chal­lenges this time.”

With a 27-year back­ground in theatre, Prosser has worked as a scenic artist and ac­tor af­ter sev­eral years spent as a nar­ra­tor for au­dio books for the visu­ally im­paired.

David John­son, Tim Prosser and Willy Smeets meet at the Pearly Gates in Stair­way­toHeaven at Rigby’s Bar this month.
