Nanango Theatre Company is ready to go post-COVID … they just want you!

The group is currently looking for actors to cast for three one-act comedy plays.

Anne Davoren will be directing “Pastiche” and “Blind Date”; while Jon Fearnley is directing “Short Term Affairs”.

Casting will be held on Thursday, July 30, from 5:00pm to 6:00pm; and on August 1, from noon at the theatre company’s playhouse on the corner of George and Elk streets.

Secretary Valerie Mathews said both men and women were wanted, aged from 20 to 70 years.

The Nanango Theatre Company had planned a large program of events in 2020 to mark their 40th anniversary but the pandemic threw a spanner in the works.

As soon as restrictions are over, the group is planning to resurrect its planned special program.

In the meantime, it will soon begin hosting movie afternoons using a screen and projector donated by the former Ringsfield Film Society.

Valerie said the NTC would be showing old films from the National Film Archives.

Also, on the drawing board were “Poetry, Pizza and Plonk” nights.

Valerie said members met at the theatre on the first Wednesday of every month from 7:00pm for a general meeting and play readings.
