Memorial hall rocks again
Small-town Kiwi life in the sixties has made a comeback in Cromwell.
Fine Thyme Theatre’s show, Flagons and Foxtrots begins a season of five performances closing on Friday, November 4.
Newbie director Kelly Keenan has been delighted with the work of the cast during the 12 weeks of their rehearsals.
‘‘This is one of the most harmonious theatre projects I have ever worked on. The polish and talent of the cast will guarantee lots of laughs for the audience.’’
Flagons and Foxtrots was a great reflection of small town Kiwi life in the sixties and the plot and characters would be instantly recognisable, he said.
The cast featured several new faces, including Hunter Hill who had wowed Alexandra audiences as Buddy Holly and an Elvis lookalike.
The show was about a small town somewhere in 1960s Central Otago and Sid Jenkins had a problem - The Bobbin’ Robbins are stranded at the ferry terminal and Sid needs to find another band to play for the local Saturday night dance.
Ticket prices include suppertime refreshments and seats can be reserved at Cromwell and Alexandra iSite offices.
‘‘Do not miss a great night out that will bring old-time dance tunes back to the Memorial Hall,’’ Keenan said.
