April Reptalk

LOOT is well underway at Rep, the set looks wonderful, wardrobe is in hand, and the great cast are putting in the time required at rehearsals to get things perfect. Technical rehearsals start shortly so that always tells us all that opening night is coming ! There has been a change in cast line-up due to an actor stepping down, so yes folks, Wanganui has a chance to see our very own Director Extraordinaire Mark Rayner take the role. Mark has jumped from desk to stage with ease and is enjoying the opportunity to play Inspector Truscott, the evil villian of sorts in Loot and a very fun character for Mark to play, along with a strong very supportive cast. LOOT by Joe Orton 3rd to 11th May 7.30pm, Matinee Sunday 5th May at 2pm. This is the second of four productions this year to celebrate Repertory Theatre’s 80th birthday 1933-2013. This classic play still has the power to shock and entertain. Be in to win free tickets to the show by visiting the Rep website and sending us an email with your contact details to enter.

Announcing our next production at Rep,THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST by Oscar Wilde. Auditions for this sparkling comedy of manners will take place on Sunday June 9th from 12pm to 4pm, Repertory Theatre. Casting all roles. Performances August.

WWI Centennial Commemorations

Next year, 2014, will see the start of centennial commemorations of the First World War. Many groups and individuals are putting on their thinking caps, and have already come up with some terrific ideas for ways to tell our stories of that time. At Repertory Theatre we’ve been talking about linking with the September 2015 Literary Festival, to present drama written by our own Whanganui playwrights (either established, or budding!).

Reflections could provide the inspiration to write a full-length play, a one-act play, or provide a thread for a series of related vignettes. Good luck with getting started with this if you’ve a mind to put pen to paper. You have nearly two years to work on it, as your scripts would need to reach us by the end of March, 2015 so that we can workshop, cast, costume, rehearse etc, the play or plays selected. We’re looking forward to seeing some locally-flavoured history enacted at Repertory!
