Cast members needed for roles in comedy play
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.
