old Coast Lit­tle The­atre di­rec­tor Rob Hor­ton is ap­proach­ing his forth­com­ing pro­duc­tion of Lady Win­de­mere’s Fan a lit­tle dif­fer­ently – Steam­punk style. This is a clas­sic by Oscar Wilde, one of his first so­cial come­dies. A so­ci­ety woman be­lieves her hus­band is hav­ing an af­fair, a mis­con­cep­tion that may have dire per­sonal con­se­quences for all in­volved. A bit­ing satire on the morals of so­ci­ety, one of the best-known lines of the play sums up the cen­tral theme: “We are all in the gut­ter, but some of us are look­ing at the stars”. The show opens 8pm on Septem­ber 2 and runs un­til Septem­ber 17. Book by calling 5532 2096 or via GCLT’s web­site. Spot­light The­atre is cur­rently play­ing the mu­si­cal Nine to Five. Di­rected by Jamie Watt, it’s a tight, pacy show, with ex­cel­lent leads. It’s nice to see Ta­mara Hamil­ton (nee Poo­ley) back on stage. Based on the film of the same name, the show fea­tures a large cast and ex­cel­lent chore­og­ra­phy. It runs un­til Au­gust 19. Call 5539 4255 to book.
