Congratulations to the Moruya Red Door Theatre cast & crew.
Moruya’s new theatre company performed, for their first production a fun pantomime for the entire family, "Babes in the Wood" based loosely on Hansel and Gretel and written by Australian playwright Tony Nicholls. The Baron (Anthony Mayne) wants to get rich, the witch and her cat want to make gold – and all the other characters help them, or hinder them, towards a happy ending – perhaps. There was lots of action and slapstick antics. Following a "sellout" performance to 350 students from the Moruya Primary school (The theatre's stage is the School's auditorium) the company also put on a Friday night performance and a Saturday matinee.
Anthony Mayne (The Baron) writes: The new Moruya Red Door Theatre launched its first production to a full house in Moruya. The night was a real celebration of community theatre. A night made possible by the work of many hands. A big shout out to the actors, who also formed the committee and put in many hours behind the scenes in set construction, painting, promoting and so forth. Starting a new theatre group from scratch meant that we needed all hands on deck. The success of the play is testimony to the vibrant arts and culture scene we have in the Eurobodalla. Thank you to our community and sponsors whose support and patronage has been wonderful. And of course, to our very first director, Linda Heald, of Narooma, congratulations. For those interested in being involved in our next production keep an eye out on our Moruya Red Door Theatre Facebook page. "Wonderful to have a full house on opening night. Moruya now has a theatre company. So what's next......Good Question.......planning our next production shortly - so let us know if you are interested in being a part of the theatre" Cheers to Bay Post / Moruya Examiner, Narooma News & The Beagle for your coverage.
