Look­ing for dra­matic me­mora­bilia

Mansfield Courier - - NEWS - By DAVID MIMS

MANS­FIELD Mu­sic and Dra­matic So­ci­ety (MMuDS) is look­ing to up­date and ex­pand its ar­chive collection and needs your help.

Pres­i­dent Karen Pirie is call­ing on any­one in the com­mu­nity who has ever had any in­volve­ment with MMuDS to check their garages, wardrobes, draw­ers, stor­age trunks, and those dark hid­den cor­ners for any sort of me­mora­bilia of past shows and events.

“Whether it be pho­tos, pro­grams, old scripts, or any­thing MMuDS re­lated, we’d love to get our hands on them,” said Ms Pirie.

MMuDS will scan your rel­e­vant ma­te­rial and re­turn it to you, or if it’s some­thing a bit big­ger such as an old un­usual cos­tume or small prop they will have a look and see if it’s suit­able, how­ever, space is limited.

If you think you have some­thing of in­ter­est, con­tact sec­re­tary De­bra Dodg­son via email sec­re­[email protected]

Mean­while, back in the present, a small but very tal­ented cast are busy re­hears­ing for the first pro­duc­tion of the year.

Com­ing to the Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre from May 9 to 17 is the de­light­ful, funny, and poignant play ‘A Month of Sun­days’ by Bob Lar­bey.

Based in an English nurs­ing home, it is the story of six people whose lives are in­ter­twined around the home through fam­ily and work.

The play is de­scribed as “a warm, witty play about friend­ship and hero­ism in the face of ap­proach­ing obliv­ion”.

Tick­ets go on sale from April 1 on­line at www.mmuds.org.au or in per­son at Wal­laby Ritz.
