Theatre arts in four parts

Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - By GRACE EVANS

EUROA Lit­tle Theatre is com­ing back to a stage nearby, as they pre­pare for their “The­atri­cal Arts in Four Parts”.

The team will re­turn to the stage at the School House at Euroa Pri­mary School on Fri­day Novem­ber 2 at 7.30pm, Satur­day Novem­ber 3 at 7.30pm and Sun­day Novem­ber 4 at 2pm.

There will be four per­for­mances through­out the night in­clud­ing two live per­for­mances ‘Live, In­ter­rupted’ by the ju­nior cast and ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ by the se­nior cast.

Along with the live per­for­mances will be a spe­cial screen­ing of the per­for­mances from the 2018 ARKfest Short Play Fes­ti­val, with all the plays writ­ten by Euroa’s very own Ally Hayes.

Pres­i­dent Marg Wat­ters has said she is look­ing for­ward to putting on an­other show for the com­mu­nity of Euroa.

“It’s just a way of en­joy­ing your­self and hope­fully in your en­joy­ment of putting some­thing on, you’re giv­ing plea­sure to oth­ers,” Mrs Wat­ters said.

Of­fer­ing act­ing work­shops and set de­sign mak­ing work­shops, Mrs Wat­ters said the group of 20 mem­bers are keen for any­one to get on board with the group.

“We are hop­ing to be able to put on a cou­ple more things per year, rather than just one thing a year,” she said.

With her up­com­ing pieces set to go out to the com­mu­nity, play­wright Ally Hayes said her in­spi­ra­tion comes from what­ever she is do­ing or read­ing at that time.

“Some­times I might start with a con­cept or genre I want to try, other times some­one will say some­thing or I’ll read a line and it will just click some­thing in me and I grab a scrap of pa­per and start fran­ti­cally writ­ing be­fore I lose the idea,” she said.

One of the live per­for­mances will be per­formed by an all ju­nior cast and Miss Hayes said she felt the kids’ play is im­por­tant be­cause she wants to in­crease in­ter­est from the younger gen­er­a­tion in town in Theatre.

“As long as peo­ple want to keep per­form­ing I’m happy to keep writ­ing for them,” she said.

“We’re not a big club and we don’t take our­selves too se­ri­ously so be pre­pared for a few laughs.”

‘Live, In­ter­rupted’ will fol­low a band set to do their fi­nal re­hearsal be­fore a live per­for­mance, with a man­ager that wants ev­ery­thing to run to plan, and a band that have other ideas.

‘Choose your Own Adventure’ is about a young hero that em­barks on a dan­ger­ous quest to com­plete three im­pos­si­ble tasks to win the princess’ hand

Tick­ets will be made avail­able on the door, with con­ces­sion at $7.50 and full at $12.
