Good crowds for WYT

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The first of this year’s pro­duc­tions by the War­ragul Youth Theatre, “Puss n Boots”, drew good crowds to its six per­for­mances last week.

The cast of 15, cho­sen af­ter au­di­tions, was smaller than most pro­duc­tions of the group.

But the young per­form­ers re­ceived en­thu­si­as­tic re­cep­tions from the au­di­ences at the twice daily per­for­mances last Tues­day, Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day.

The group’s sec­re­tary Trudy Tam­bassis said the War­ragul Ex­hi­bi­tion Hall had been an ad­e­quate tem­po­rary venue while the West Gipp­s­land Arts Cen­tre was un­der­go­ing ma­jor re­de­vel­op­ment and ex­pan­sion.

How­ever, she said it was hoped the War­ragul Youth Theatre’s third and fi­nal pre­sen­ta­tion for the year, “Goldilocks”, would be at the new arts cen­tre.

As the scenery and props were be­ing put away af­ter the fi­nal ses­sion of “Puss n Boots” last week, the group’s at­ten­tion quickly turned to the next pro­duc­tion.

An in­for­ma­tion ses­sion for prospec­tive cast of “Sleep­ing Beauty” will be held at the VRI Hall in War­ragul at 7pm to­mor­row (Wed­nes­day).

At­ten­dance at the ses­sion is es­sen­tial to book for au­di­tions. “Sleep­ing Beauty” will be per­formed from July 9 to 13.

Ms Tam­bassis said casts com­prised pri­mary and sec­ondary stu­dents aged eight and above.

“Puss n Boots” was di­rected by Ms Tam­bassis, Joe Hill and Abbey Per­son with an­other 10 vol­un­teers in­volved in the many es­sen­tial be­hind the scenes du­ties.

The cast in last week’s show was Dayna Tam­pa­line as Puss, Flynn Lock­ett, Eilidh Pur­ton, Lochlan Costello, Pan­dora Frake, Jes­sica Kom­sky, Made­line Ron­alds, Tori Mad­den, Han­nah Wer­tiechowski, Sian Nauta, Vanessa Hornby, Tara Matthews, Bianca Wil­son, Lucy McKen­zie and Lily Tam­bassis.
