The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - DRESSING ROOMERS/PLAY - KATE PETERS

Open­ing this week was Javeen­bah The­atre’s Five Women Wear­ing the Same Dress –a com­edy play about wed­dings. It runs un­til De­cem­ber 6 – book on 5596 0300. No other open­ings on the Coast com­mu­nity the­atre scene, but Gold Coast Lit­tle The­atre con­tin­ues its suc­cess­ful run with The Pa­jama Game, Bal­lina Play­ers with High So­ci­ety, Tu­gun The­atre Company with It Runs in the Fam­ily and Been­leigh The­atre Group with Calamity Jane. Voices in Par­adise have an­nounced an up­com­ing event for choir direc­tors called Voices In Par­adise: Choir Direc­tors Work­shop. The event will be held at Grif­fith Univer­sity Gold Coast cam­pus on Fe­bru­ary 22, 2015. Par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive di­rect­ing ed­u­ca­tion by award-win­ning direc­tors, view per­for­mances by Pan Pa­cific youth cham­pi­ons Blenders Youth Cho­rus, get a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of lo­cal pro­duc­tion tech­niques for har­mony singers and more. This is an ideal way to boost your di­rect­ing skills and stay up to date on all mod­ern trends in the a cap­pella world. The Man in Black will de­scend on Jupiters Casino to­mor­row night. I saw this show some years ago in Bris­bane and it’s a cracker. The man, the mu­sic and the legend that is Johnny Cash will be brought to life when Tex Perkins rolls into town for three shows only. The two-hour spec­tac­u­lar ex­plores Cash’s com­plex life from his jour­ney to the top and un­timely fall from grace to his ul­ti­mate re­demp­tion. Tex Perkins, one of the most elec­tri­fy­ing front men of Aus­tralian rock ’n’ roll, brings the in­fa­mous coun­try legend to life, and leads The Ten­nessee Four in a not-to-be missed night of mem­o­rable mu­sic. Nom­i­na­tions for this year’s Gold Coast Area The­atre Awards were re­leased at mid­night Mon­day last. A host of ac­tors, set de­sign­ers, cos­tume mak­ers and direc­tors, mu­si­cal direc­tors and vo­cal direc­tors will be hon­oured at the nom­i­nees’ cock­tail party and pre­sen­ta­tion night at The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast next Tues­day and De­cem­ber 16 re­spec­tively. It’s in­ter­est­ing to see the pop­u­lar­ity of cer­tain pro­duc­tions over oth­ers; great to see young peo­ple tak­ing part in lo­cal shows and mov­ing for­ward into pro­fes­sional ca­reers in show business. Watch this space for more news on the ma­jor events! Yours Truly is off this week­end to see La Cage aux Folles from the Pro­duc­tion Company in Mel­bourne – a fab­u­lous mu­si­cal star­ring the great Aus­tralian tal­ents of Todd McKenny, Si­mon Burke and Rhonda Burch­more. We hear that the bril­liant Tony Shel­don is Aus­tralia-bound again soon to per­form in Man of La Man­cha – don’t miss it.
