The North West Theatre Company members are ready to delight their audiences at The Roxy Theatre with their first major production of 2018. Called “Under the Spotlights” – SHOWCASE 2018, the production brings together twenty local performers, some making their Roxy debuts.

“A major focus of SHOWCASE is to give our members the chance to direct and design a stage show!” said NWTC President Rick Hutton. “Directing requires imagination, patience and persistence and we have found six new directors for this show.”

SHOWCASE consists of twelve staged items. From the poems, “I Shall Wear Purple” (Linda McDouall) and “All the World’s a Stage” (Henry Martin) to the songs “Do You Love Me” (Lee Loudon & Rick Hutton), “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” (Tanya Heaton, Johnette Walker & Linda McDouall) and the rock ‘n’ roll classic “Oh Boy” (Johnette Walker & Henry Martin) there is a feast of talent and styles on show.

Excerpts from contemporary plays “Mediation” (Kerri-anne Thomas, Lee Loudon, Willow South, Johnette Walker and Francis Bilsborough), “And the Big Men Fly” (Brian Weaver, John Wearne and Francis Bilsborough) and “It’s My Party and I’ll Die if I Want To” (Rick Hutton, Wendy Wearne, Linda McDouall, Kerri-anne Thomas, Lynne Clarke, & Tanya Heaton) contrast with scenes from classics Macbeth’s witches (Sally Olive, Wendy Wearne, Rebekah Turner, Rick Hutton & Garry McDouall) and “Alice In Wonderland” (Rachael Heaton, Lee Loudon and Kerri-anne Thomas).

All ages are represented at SHOWCASE 2018 with the young talents of Sarah Heaton on trumpet with “Scrappy Rag” and an original concept play where Cinderella (Emily-Kate Rattray) and Jack (Tammy Trevithick ) compare experiences in “The Ups and Downs of Jack & Cinders”.
