Countdown to Opening Night

The pressure’s on and the clock is ticking – the upcoming run of our latest production is fast approaching and it’s all systems go to ensure everything comes together like a well-oiled machine for opening night. ‘Are You Being Served?’ opens this Friday with a gala performance and promises to be another quality show at Repertory Theatre.

Led by seasoned local theatre director Glenn Cameron, and adapted from the highly successful seventies television series, this delicious ‘blast from the past’ is guaranteed to provide an hilarious night out with all the familiar characters and catchphrases from the much-loved TV series and wonderful seventies costumes and decor to match. With a terrifically strong cast, great set design and clever direction this show promises to deliver an evening of quality theatre.

A production like this requires just as much effort backstage as it does onstage and we’re extremely fortunate at Rep to have a strong team of enthusiastic backstage helpers. Led by the endlessly patient and tireless Sherman Page as our Stage Manager, this group of hard-working crew members certainly has its work cut out on this production with a major complete set change in the interval and a large number of props to efficiently deal with throughout the performance.

Once again Murray Ware has come up trumps and delivered an extremely effective lighting design for the show, and Debbie Spence, our technician, provides faultlessly cued sound effects. Once the production has been through its final dress rehearsal, then the friendly front of house and box office team will come on board, to provide another evening of warm, welcoming theatre for Wanganui audiences.

For an evening of outrageous fun and slick theatre, come along to Repertory’s production of “Are You Being Served?”. The season opens this Friday 23rd at 7.30 and plays 24th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st nightly at 7.30 and Sunday 25th at 2pm. Book in person at the Royal Wanganui Opera House or online through our tickets page.
