CEL­E­BRAT­ING THE YEAR’S BEST

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LIFESTYLE - Aaron Cor­lett

THE high­lights of the Old Mill Theatre’s past 12 months will be recog­nised at an up­com­ing awards cer­e­mony.

The Milly Awards will take place on Jan­uary 20 with a num­ber of awards, in­clud­ing best ac­tor, ac­tress and pro­duc­tion handed out.

At­ten­dees will be able to en­joy gourmet canapes, en­ter­tain­ment and drinks be­fore the evening starts proper at 8pm.

Old Mill Theatre vicechair­man Phil Bar­nett said the night would be a chance to re­flect on the past 12 months.

“There will be ex­cerpts from shows that have been per­formed from the past year as well as other bits of en­ter­tain­ment,” he said.

“There have been some qual­ity shows but I think the last show of the year, Scrooge, was one of my favourites.

“It got kids in­volved and I be­lieve the youth should be in­volved in theatre; the show def­i­nitely sent off the year on a high.”

Bar­nett said there would also be a sneak peek at the shows to come.

“We are al­ways try­ing to put on in­ter­est­ing, al­ter­na­tive shows as well as ones that cater for our ex­ist­ing at­ten­dees,” he said. “We want to have new au­di­ences en­joy our shows.”

Peo­ple in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing are re­quired to RSVP on 9367 8719.

David Heder (cen­tre) has been nom­i­nated for best ac­tor for his role as Ish­mael in Moby Dick, along­side Kit Leake and Josh Har­ris.
