Benalla Ensign - - Front Page -

Af­ter an ab­sence of 14 years the Be­nalla Theatre Com­pany has an­nounced it will re­turn to Be­nalla Town Hall for its first pro­duc­tion next year.

The lo­cal theatre group an­nounced it was get­ting ready to put on a pro­duc­tion of Robin the Hood in May.

Be­nalla Theatre Com­pany’s Molly Craig said ev­ery­one in­volved was ex­cited.

‘‘We are very much look­ing for­ward to grac­ing the stage of one of our town’s grand­est build­ings again,’’ Ms Craig said.

Com­pany mem­bers re­cently met at the town hall to cel­e­brate the re­turn to a stage that has been per­formed on by the group and its pre­de­ces­sors since the 1950s.

‘‘Next year’s mu­si­cal is Robin the Hood. It is the tale of Robin Hood try­ing to res­cue his love Mar­ion from the evil clutches of King John and the Sher­iff of Snot­ting­ham,’’ Ms Craig said.

‘‘Throw in the Merry Men, a group of Gree­nies and the hoped-for re­turn of the right­ful King Richard, means that much hi­lar­ity and fun will en­sue.

‘‘The style of show means that the town hall is the per­fect place for Robin the Hood.’’

Cabaret seat­ing with ta­bles will be avail­able for some per­for­mances and tra­di­tional theatre seat­ing avail­able for oth­ers, mean­ing that ev­ery­one can be ac­com­mo­dated.

Robin the Hood will be per­formed in late May with au­di­tions to take place on Fe­bru­ary 3 and 4.
