Audience numbers are limited to just 24 for each session of Nanango Theatre Company’s upcoming short season of romantic comedies – so you’d better book your tickets straight away!
The NTC’s first production for 2020, dubbed “Make It A Date!”, is a collection of four one-act plays: “Blind Date”, by Peter Quilter; “Short Term Affairs”, by Donna Spector; “Pastiche”, by Nick Hall; and “The Un-Cucumber Man”, by Ian Austin.
They will be staged under a COVID Safe plan at the NTC’s theatre building on the corner of Elk and George streets, Nanango, on October 23-24 and 30-31 at 7:00pm plus a matinee session from 1:30pm on October 24.
A second matinee session on October 31 has also been pencilled in but has not yet been confirmed.
Bookings – in cash – can be made at the Nanango Visitor Information Centre (the Energy Museum) in Henry Street.
The four comedies – who doesn’t need a laugh in 2020? – promise to provide a huge night of fun entertainment.
” ‘Pastiche’ is an English fast-paced situational comedy that we presented 10 years ago, and has a strong cast,” NTC president Jon Fearnley said.
It’s being directed by Anne Davoren.
“Anne also directs ‘Blind Date’, a short reflection of the difficulties of mature people dating, and featuring Lloyd Macpherson and new member Karen Denniss,” Jon said.
“Brad and Kieran Boynton then feature in the witty ‘Short Term Affairs’ that examines the elements of attraction and how personal differences affect relationships.”
Jon is directing this play.
“The program finishes with the comedy of errors, ‘The Un-Cucumber Man’, by Queensland playwright Ian Austin. Also directed by Anne Davoren, it features a strong cast of Des Moore, Valerie Mathews, Mattia Micco Iraci, Mathew Carlson and newcomer Kelsey Anderson,” Jon said.
Tickets are $20 (adults) and $15 (concession).
