Tai­lor-made role

Canning Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

RIVER­VALE res­i­dent Jade Azor is about to play a spe­cial role in an up­com­ing wed­ding; on stage, that is.

She’s ap­pear­ing in Se­cret Brides­maids’ Busi­ness at Ro­ley­stone Hall this Oc­to­ber as one of the brides­maids.

Writ­ten by El­iz­a­beth Cole­man and di­rected by Michelle Ezzy, the pop­u­lar com­edy hinges on a lie that could change every­thing and whether the brides­maids should re­veal a se­cret about the groom.

Jade plays Lucy, a fierce friend to those close to her.

“She’s com­pletely un­afraid to be who she is and, if you come for Lucy or one of her loved ones, you should watch out,” she said. “But un­der­neath it all, she’s re­ally a softie.

“Lucy spends a good amount of the play try­ing to de­cide whether or not to re­veal a big se­cret, so there are mul­ti­ple lay­ers to every con­ver­sa­tion.”

In­volved in the­atre and mu­sic since pri­mary school, Jade spent a year at a Lon­don drama school be­fore per­form­ing in three pro­duc­tions with the Is­ling­ton Play­ers.

After a four-year hia­tus, Se­cret Brides­maids’ Busi­ness marks her re­turn to the stage since mov­ing back to Perth.

“I love the way the char­ac­ters in­ter­act with each other,” Jade said.

“At first glance, they all seem to be a cer­tain way but there’s ac­tu­ally more to each one of them.”

Se­cret Brides­maids’ Busi­ness plays at 7.30pm Oc­to­ber 11, 12, 18 and 19 with a 2pm mati­nee Oc­to­ber 13. Tick­ets are $20, $15 con­ces­sion, book at www. ro­ley­stonethe­atre.com.au.

Ro­ley­stone Hall is at 44 Jar­rah Road, Ro­ley­stone.
