FOLLOWING its successful season in April and May, the Northam Theatre Group is now rehearsing for its next production, ACT 3.
This season will feature plays written and directed by two theatre group members.
It is not often that a season of three plays can be produced by an amateur group, with two of those plays being both written and directed in-house.
A relatively new member, Kay Withoutanee, has written and directed many plays in different Australian states.
For her first Northam season she has written a comedy reflecting the many real headaches and hitches a director has to deal with in a small amateur theatre company.
Many years of experience come to this production, and the director has recruited some new faces to the Link stage, giving an equal opportunity to every cast member both new and experienced.
The second play is written by a well-known active and creative long-time theatre group member Joseph Lepmah.
This play is a serious contrast to the first.
Developing from a coffee shop conversation it can be interpreted in many different ways, somewhat sinister, depending on how the audience sees it.
There are some new faces on stage.
The third play is a send up of art and art galleries, and the personalities who can be found in the art world – again, with a new face in the cast.
This play has an underlying comment on artistic society.
This evening’s entertainment will be quite different from the offerings of recent times and will be a mixture of comedy and comment.
It runs for three nights only on August 2, 3 and 4.
Tickets are $20.
Book at Everlastings on Fitzgerald from July 23.
