Cast mem­bers needed for roles in com­edy play

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

SCRIPTS are be­ing stud­ied and roles be­ing cast so now is the per­fect time to jump on board for the come­back of the Cannonvale Air­lie Beach Live En­ter­tain­ment (CA­BLE) Theatre.

In­ter­est is grow­ing for the theatre group af­ter a suc­cess­ful au­di­tion for the fa­mous Aus­tralian play, Dim­boola, saw a num­ber of new faces join the cast on Satur­day.

Writ­ten by Jack Hib­bard, Dim­boola, is a hi­lar­i­ous com­edy that fol­lows the in­ter­ac­tions of var­i­ous whacky char­ac­ters at a coun­try wed­ding re­cep­tion.

CA­BLE Theatre founder Mar­garet McDon­ald said the group was founded in 1997, and Dim­boola fea­tured as their first ever per­for­mance.

Held in the old night­club un­derneath the pool at Ter­races Restau­rant and Bar in Air­lie Beach, Dim­boola, was a sell-out suc­cess, paving the way for CA­BLE’s next 13 years.

De­spite this, in 2010 the cur­tain fell on CA­BLE but Ms McDon­ald said she “will beg, steal and bor­row un­til I see this play on the stage”.

CA­BLE Theatre are now look­ing for two ma­ture age women to take out the roles of April De­laney and Florence McA­dam who are the mothers of the bride and groom.

Five men are also needed to take charge of the un­in­vited guests Bay­o­net and Mut­ton, the drunken Ir­ish Priest Fa­ther Pa­trick O’Shea, best man Daryl Dunn and Ho­race McA­dam who is the un­cle of the groom.

Proser­pine State High School drama teacher Melissa El­lis and her hus­band John will be tak­ing out the lead roles of the bride and groom.

Mrs El­lis said she was look­ing for some­thing to sink her teeth into and couldn’t wait to get on stage.

CA­BLE Theatre will be meet­ing ev­ery Tues­day at the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club from 7pm and all are wel­come to at­tend. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Jac­qui Kerr on 0416 616 205.

CEN­TRE STAGE: Cannonvale Airle Beach Live En­ter­tain­ment (CA­BLE) Theatre cast mem­bers Jennifer Ren­ton, John El­lis, Rachel No­bel, Steve Wick­ett, Melissa El­lis and Mar­garet McDon­ald were hav­ing fun with a whacky wed­ding scene from Dim­boola at the sail­ing club on Tues­day night.
