Playmates is fast approaching, with our teams finalising their casts for this exciting production. Teams are starting to fill up, and it is looking like all our group’s are going to be putting on a fantastic show for our audience. Bookings have started coming through nicely, so make sure you book your tickets now to secure your seat to this one night only comedy sensation.
Unfortunately, the much anticipated inclusion of NSW’s oldest running community theatre group Nowra Players will have to wait another year. This small group of passionate theatre makers are not able to field a team this year, with many demands on their talent involved with upcoming productions in Nowra. We look forward to having you with us another time, and wish you all the best with the rest of your 2012 season!
We will be announcing the new theatre company this week, but we are hoping to welcome Bulli’s Black Diamond Players. Stay tuned!
In casting news, Playmates is again fielding a host of the Illawarra’s finest. Brother and Sister pair Evan and Charlotte Kerr will be joining fellow graduates of The Drama Studio Elizabeth Ray and Eamonn McNamara. Wollongong Comedy are fielding an exciting team including Craichouse Comedy Club co-founder Martin Henchion with partners in crime Bryan Goddard and Adam Armitt who are looking to take the trophy home in their first year. But watch out everyone for the ambush from the north, with Stanwell Park Arts Theatre (SPAT) pumped after a great turnout to their Playmates try-out, with Cameron Campbell, Bernadette Le Mesurier and the electric Rebecca Barrows hungry to record their first Playmates victory.
The very talented Toby Davis and Lauren Killey head up the University team who are again out to impress after the team’s strong performance in previous years, but all eyes will be on reigning champions Roo Theatre who are raging hot favourites to win back-to-back. The boys from Shellharbour are pumped, and with returning actors Adam Higgins and David Rienits joining good friends Adam O’Brien and Daniel Stefanovski – the boys from Shellharbour will be hard to stop.
The 2012 Playmates may well be the closest contended battle yet. Look out for the complete cast list being released over the weekend.
