Countdown to LOOT

The countdown is on to opening night for LOOT and we’ve all been working especially hard this week to ensure this play is everything that Wanganui audiences come to expect from a show at Repertory. The cast and crew have been working tirelessly to achieve a slick and polished performance and, come opening night, this work will have hopefully paid off. We are certainly enjoying the challenge of performing such a wonderfully written play, and are looking forward to that first performance when the reaction of a live audience makes all the difference!

Backstage, much thanks must go to James Graves, who is very ably assisting Kerry Mountstephen on the wardrobing of this show. It’s lovely to welcome a newcomer like James who has so quickly (and efficiently) become a pivotal part of the well-run team, displaying a wonderful flair for costuming and a keen eye for detail.

A reminder that submissions are now open for locally-written plays (either full-length or one-act) to coincide with the nationwide commemoration of the hundredth anniversary of the first World War. Plays should ideally have a local flavour and should tell a story about (or a have a theme based around) World War I. We will be receiving these new works from now until the end of February 2015, so there’s plenty of time to get writing. It is envisaged that these plays will be workshopped (or staged) during the 2015 Wanganui Literary Festival.

Congratulations to Midweek reader Heather Turner who is our lucky winner in the giveaway competition for opening night tickets.

Tickets for LOOT are now on sale at the Wanganui Opera House, priced at $25 (with concessions available).
