The hunt is on for a swashbuckling woman to join the cast of a new radio-style production of the classic boys’ adventure Treasure Island
Gold Coast theatrical allrounder Nathan Schulz is looking for an elusive woman with a parrot on her shoulder for his new radiostyle production of the classic boys’ adventure Treasure Island. Nathan, who is presenting a new version of Orson Welles’ 1938 Mercury Theatre on Air show at the Burleigh Common next month, believes the woman was among the 15,000 Games Shapers at the recent Gold Coast sports fest. The Treasure Island production team would like to invite the woman to join their band of cutthroat swashbuckling pirates for their rip-roaring show. It runs May 16, 18 and 19. For more information call Nathan Schulz on 0412 26 3281 or go to thedramamerchant.com.au and click on The Radioplay Hour for ticketing details. The cast list for the forthcoming GCLT production of Kiss Me Kate has been announced: playing Lilli/Kate is Naomi Mole; Fred is Brad Kendrick; Louis is Tess Burke; Bill is Jack Harbour; Gangsters are Nicola Barrett and Terri Woodfine; Paul is Patrick Phillips; Hattie is Freya Haywood; Harry is Joe Bourke. The female ensemble consists of Livia Abreu, Dana White and Jordan Brinsley. The production is seeking members for a male ensemble. Interested male performers can contact director Andrew Cockroft-Penman on email@example.com Dressing Roomers was sorry to hear of the passing of Margaret Beskin, wife and supporter of local theatrical guru Joel. She will be remembered with much affection by her many friends in the local theatre community. Gold Coast Little Theatre hosted Drinks with the Director last week, featuring the cast of the forthcoming Piccadilly Olde Time Music Hall. An enthusiastic crowd enjoyed highlights from the show, which opens tomorrow for a two-weekend run. See you in a crowded foyer.
