Heildeberg Theatre Company (Vic) presents The 39 Steps, Patrick Barlow’s entertaining adaptation of the John Buchan / Alfred Hitchcock Espionage classic, from September 15 to October 1, 2011.
The 39 Steps follows the hilarious trials and tribulations of the wrongly accused Richard Hannay as he evades police and finds love while trying to foil the fiendish plot of a devilishly brilliant mastermind. On stage is a rollicking thriller-romance script with madcap vaudeville like comic routines and a delightful array of characters.
Things are not always what they seem – as evidenced in the September / October production at Limelight Theatre, Wanneroo (W.A.), with its puzzle of scattered clues, mixed motives and concealed identities.
Written by Agatha Christie and directed by Sue Mainwaring, A Murder Is Announced is set in an English country village house and features the famed amateur detective Miss Marple.
In A Murder Is Announced, a killing is advertised in the local paper with the location – and people turn up, waiting for the crime to unfold.
A Chorus Line - the much loved musical based on the unheralded men and women who make up the chorus line – will be presented by Miranda Musical Society at the Sutherland Entertainment Centre (NSW) from September 21 to 25, 2011.
JYM theatre co. brings to life the quirky and energetic world of competitive spelling with The 25th Annual Putnam Counting Spelling Bee from August 20 - 27, 2011 at the Phoenix Theatre in Elwood (Victoria).
The six-time nominated Tony Award winning musical is a comedy about a group of middle school kids hoping to win their state Spelling Bee, with a coveted spot at Nationals on the line. The show takes its audience through the surprisingly touching and sometimes painfully funny moments of prepubescence and exposes the idiosyncrasies of each competitor.
