Open­ing night for Lit­tle Theatre show

CHB Mail - - NEWS -

It's open­ing night this week for

Se­cret Brides­maids Busi­ness, the fi­nal show of Lit­tle Theatre's 2019 sea­son.

“Se­cret Brides­maids Busi­ness was last seen on stage at Lit­tle Theatre 15 years ago, and we are in­cred­i­bly lucky to have one of the orig­i­nal cast mem­bers from that show, Deb­bie Hart, in our 2019 pro­duc­tion,” Jules Hamil­ton says, mak­ing her Lit­tle Theatre di­rec­to­rial de­but.

“She is joined by her real life/ on stage daugh­ter Kristin Hart whose star shines brightly as our beau­ti­ful bride.

“They are joined on stage by su­perb brides­maids Alanna Barkle and Br­yar McKerrow, whose char­ac­ters are so well drawn you'll recog­nise them as your own friends.

“Round­ing out this cast are Eli­jah Gra­ham and Lucy Mavin who play groom and ‘friend' and their won­der­ful per­for­mances will have you ques­tion­ing your own be­liefs on re­la­tion­ships.

“A wed­ding is such a great sub­ject for a sto­ry­line. They're full of love and hap­pi­ness but at the same time fraught with tightly wound emo­tional drama. To say it's been a plea­sure to work with this great en­sem­ble cast is an ab­so­lute un­der­state­ment. Their ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment to the task at hand has been a joy to be­hold. I can't wait to share this fan­tas­tic Aus­tralian play with Lit­tle Theatre au­di­ences,” says Jules.

For one per­for­mance Lit­tle Theatre will be tri­alling “Pay What You Can Af­ford”.

Waipuku­rau Lit­tle Theatre wants every­one to be able to ex­pe­ri­ence a play, re­gard­less of bud­get or ex­pe­ri­ence, so for the Sun­day Mati­nee sim­ply turn up, choose your ticket price (they are $5, $10, $20 and $40) pay on the door and en­joy the show. The curtain goes up at 2.30pm and it's first come, first served so don't miss out.
