LOCAL TALENT SHINES
It’s well worth the hop up the highway to see some familiar faces star in this polished production of classic hit Grease
Harvest Rain will open its highly anticipated production of Grease in Brisbane at the Convention Centre on April 7. Local performers Emily Monsma and Tim Carroll have roles – it’s nice to see some ex-GC community theatre people in the professional mix. Gold Coast Little Theatre will present an orientation for its July production of Kander and Ebb’s 70 Girls 70 on March 18 from 2pm, followed by light refreshments. This is to explain the storyline and play some of the music so potential auditionees can learn more about the show. For more information call director Roger McKenzie on 0412 667 785. Another theatre party in the wings is Gold Coast Little Theatre’s offering for the historical drama Crown Matrimonial on May 11. Tickets are $20. Call 5532 2096 or check out the website. In rehearsal on the Gold Coast are Javeenbah’s Sweet Road, Spotlight’s Boy Band and Ballina Players’ Blithe Spirit, all opening on March 24. Tweed Theatre’s Broadway Blockbusters in Concert opens April 21 and GCLT’s Crown Matrimonial opens May 6. See you in a crowded foyer real soon!
Grease stars Blake Testo and Hannah King.
