PERFORMANCE: The Hall Committee

PERFORMANCE: The Hall Committee

The Hall Committee Poster reduced.jpg

A Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre original production
Written and Directed by Damian Callinan

The Rummage South Memorial Hall has seen better days. With white ants in the walls, possums in the roof and pigeons in the projection booth, the local wildlife are getting more use out of the hall than the locals. Due to the stringent restrictions enforced by Brenda, the intractable hall committee president, many residents have given up even trying to book the place.  However, when tree changer Penny manages to inveigle her way onto the committee, the community gets a shake-up. When she reveals that a hall grant is within their reach, the fractured committee ultimately join forces to outbid nearby rival, the Glenwarren Community Hall. Unbeknownst to the committee, the hall is also inhabited by the spirits of the hall’s past who weave their subtle magic to help the hall & the community heal.

Written, directed & co-starring by Damian Callinan, the writer of the hit movie The Merger, The Hall Committee will include a cast of local Wagga and Sydney actors to bring to life the folk of Rummage South past and present. Devised to be performed in the small country hall environment, audiences will have their own hall transformed in front of them as the cast usurp their residing committee to bring this interactive, immersive, hilarious play to life.

The Hall Committee is a nostalgic celebration of the role halls have played in the fabric of small town Australia but challenges us to look forward to the next phase of community life in the ever changing landscape of rural Australia.

Duration:

Approximately 1 hour & 50 minutes (including interval)

Ticket Prices:

"BIG STUFF" An Evening with Eamon Flack

Eamon+Flack+%26+Branches+web.jpg

“BIG STUFF”
An Evening with Eamon Flack
Artistic Director of the
Belvoir Street Theatre

In 1987 Eamon Flack moved from Darwin to Cootamundra. It was the year that he turned 8 and it was the first time in his life that he had live through a winter. This year, 2019, The Arts Centre is thrilled to welcome Eamon back to Cootamundra for one wintry night only. It is the year he turns … well, you do the maths!

During a delicious two course meal, created from fabulous local produce, Eamon will talk to us about the “Big Stuff” - like how important, dynamic, Australian stories can best be told by theatre and why it is so important to fund the arts.  And over a mellow local beverage the conversation will continue as Eamon will respond to our questions.

TICKETS FOR THIS FANTASTIC EVENT ARE SOLD OUT!

Thank you to everyone who has supported BIG STUFF by purchasing a ticket!

For more information contact The Arts Centre Cootamundra via phone on 02 6942 4773
between 9.30am and 1.30pm, Tuesday to Friday.

Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy some local wine produced by Coe & Co Wines, from Cooba near Gundagai. Thank you to Jim and Karen of Coe & Co Wines for Sponsoring BIG STUFF.

about the talk, “Big Stuff”

There’s just so much Big Stuff – like the great mess of the world and the incomprehensible political, social and environmental situations.  But theatre shows us that different perspectives are possible and allows us to appreciate ideas that are challenging and a bit wild.  Through theatre we can experience the full scope of life and society.  There are so many stories that have never had the special attention that theatre offers where real comedy and tragedy can mix.  Theatre is so much better than Netflix and if we want to remain a self-respecting, national democracy, we have to fund the arts. Eamon will also tell us how, from Singapore to Cootamundra to Surry Hills, a shy kid came to run one of Australia’s great theatre companies.

about Eamon

Eamon is the Artistic Director of Sydney’s acclaimed Belvoir Street Theatre. He lived in Coota in 1987, on Hovell Street, next door to a very old man called Bede who always wore a three-piece suit. Eamon was born in Singapore and his family moved around and travelled a lot before settling in Brisbane in 1988. He trained as an actor at West Australian Academy of Performing Arts from 2001 to 2003 and has since worked as a director, writer and dramaturg, from the Tiwi Islands to Melbourne, from Geraldton to Palm Islands. His directing credits include Counting and Cracking, A Taste of Honey, Ghosts, Angels in America, The Glass Menagerie and As You Like It. He has worked on new plays with many of Australia’s major writers, from Leah Purcell to Michael Gow, and he has adapted plays by Sophocles, Chekhov and Ibsen. His production of Ivanov won four Sydney Theatre Awards in 2015 including Best Mainstage Production and Best Direction. His productions of The Glass Menagerie and Angels in America both won Best Play at the Helpmann Awards.

about Belvoir

Located in Sydney’s Surry Hills, Belvoir was born out of the Nimrod Theatre in 1984. Since that time it has remained a “cultural weather vane” that bridges Sydney’s alternative theatre with the mainstream. Embracing a mix of risk and tradition, Belvoir’s productions are dynamic, challenging and visionary. Belvoir Street Theatre has nurtured the talents of many renowned Australian artists: actors including Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh; writers such as Tommy Murphy and Kate Mulvaney; directors including Rachael Maza, Wesley Enoch and former Belvoir Artistic Director Neil Armfield.

AUDITIONS & PLAY READING
May
27
to May 28

AUDITIONS & PLAY READING

The Tin Shed Theatre Group are hosting auditions for the their next production “It’s my party (and I’ll die if I want to)” by Elizabeth Coleman.

The Auditions and Play Reading will be held from 7pm to 9pm on Monday the 27th and Tuesday the 28th of May in the Tin Shed Theatre (please enter by the stage door off carpark). Everyone is welcome to attend ONE audition night.

We require 3 men and 3 women for this play (2 from each age bracket). If we have enough people to fill the roles, TACC will apply for the Rights for an Amateur Production Performance through and by arrangement with ORiGiN (TM) Theatrical on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

It is proposed that there will be 5 performances between the 10th and 19th of August 2019.

SYNOPSIS
Australian playwright Elizabeth Coleman’s 1993 play is clever, a bit black and very funny. This dark comedy is centred around the dysfunctional Patterson family. Patriarch Ron is dying of some nasty form of cancer. Ron has calculated that he has just 111 minutes to live and has called his family together to share his last two hours with him. All manner of unexpected revelations surface which make Ron’s proposed last two hours a major roller-coaster ride. Over party pies and pavlova, the choreographed schedule of events is meant to tie up all loose ends. What could possibly go wrong?
