“All the worlds a stage, and all the men and women merely players!” Thus wrote Shakespeare, years ago, along with words and stories that have stood the test of time. It is great fun to play around with words and songs, and a great pleasure for the North West Theatre Company to produce and ‘showcase’ some for you.
On Saturday July 14 and Sunday July 15 and again on the weekend of July 21 and 22 The North West Theatre Company will bring “SHOWCASE 2018 – Under the Spotlights” to the Roxy Theatre in Bingara.
SHOWCASE 2018 is a mix of short plays, skits, songs and mime with a broad range of theatrical performances. With SHOWCASE the challenge set by the NWTC was to provide its members with the chance to not just perform on stage but to also direct performances and hone their skills in the production, design and technical requirements of theatre.
Twelve items have been selected, designed, cast and rehearsed to provide our audiences with a variety of styles and types of theatre. There is Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ and Lewis Carrol’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ along with contemporary Australian pieces, ‘It’s My Party and I’ll Die if I Want To’, ‘ And the Big Men Fly!’ and ‘Mediation’. There is music from ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, Buddy Holly and the Andrews Sisters, plus twists on fairy tales and classic poems.
It is a programme with something for everyone. Some drama, some fantasy and lots of laughs will form SHOWCASE all in the name of entertainment. Book your seats now through the Bingara Visitor Information Centre on 02 6724 0066 or online.
