The North West Theatre Company has cast the play It’s My Party and I’ll Die if I Want to, which will show at the Roxy Theatre, Bingara from March 30th 2019.
Ron and Dawn Patterson will be performed by old favourites, Rick Hutton and Lee Loudon. Rick has performed in or directed almost everything the North West Theatre Company has produced since its inception in 2003.
Since Lee moved to Bingara, she has performed as Mrs Higgins in Pygmalion, Mrs Savage in The Curious Savage, Councillor Mrs Pearce in Gosforth’s Fete, Inspector Pratt in Murdered to Death, the Prosecutor in You, the Jury, and the Innkeeper’s Wife, the Radio Announcer and a Policeman in The 39 Steps.
Ron and Dawn’s children, Debbie, Michael and Karen will be played by Tanya Heaton, Stu Devlin and newcomer, Monica Coddington.
Tanya has starred in The Curious Savage as Miss Willie, Gosforth’s Fete as Milly Carter, Murdered to Death as Pierre, Blithe Spirit as Ruth Condomine, You, the Jury, as Mrs Hughes and most recently in The 39 Steps as Annabella Schmidt, Margaret and Pamela.
We welcome back Stu Devlin who played a range of roles in The 39 Steps during his first production with The North West Theatre Company and we particularly welcome Monica Coddington who is new to Bingara and is looking forward to her first role with the company.
Last but not least Ted Wilkins, the undertaker, will be played by the well-known Garry McDouall who has appeared on stage in An Artist, Farmer and Scientist Walk into a Bar.
“Both Terry Brady, the Director and I are sure we have a great cast for this play” said Ros Moulton, Producer “and I know the audience will be in for a very fun time. Everyone will be able to relate to this dysfunctional family and our cast will really bring the characters to life.”
It’s My Party and I’ll Die if I Want to was written by Australian author, Elizabeth Coleman who also wrote Secret Bridesmaids’ Business and was a writer on many TV shows such as The Flying Doctors, GP, Seachange, Police Rescue, The Secret Life of Us and All Saints.
