The Bay Theatre Players are in the final days of their run of “Children of The Black Skirt” by Angela Bietzien, and so far, the audience reaction to the production has been astonishing. Patrons have been truly blown away by the young female cast of three, Milly Shanahan, Scarlett Lane and Michaela Burtenshaw, who bring this dark and evocative play alive on the Playhouse stage.
Director Lyn Sterling is so pleased with the positive feedback from theatre goers this past weekend, saying “I have been commended for bringing our young emerging actors to such a high-performance standard, but really the credit goes to the girls who have wholeheartedly embraced the project.”
Lyn also praised the play itself, a story that is so engaging and important to tell. Lyn said “Credit must also go to our Australian writers. There is an amazing body of work out there that is current and sometimes controversial that ignites and supports our creativity and really allows our actors to expand their skills and grow themselves as performers and people”.
Lyn invites everyone to come along to one of the last 4 performances of “Children of The Black Skirt” this week, Friday 29th at 7.30pm, Saturday 30th at 2pm or 7.30pm and Sunday 31st at 2pm. Tickets are on sale at www.trybooking.com
Don’t miss out on this wonderful production – come and support theatre and the young emerging talents in our local community.
