CHRISTMAS is coming early this year at Harbour Theatre in WA with ’Twas The Night Before Christmas, written by Ken Ludwig and directed by Jane Sherwood, which follows the story of whySanta forgot to visit Emily and her friend Amos the mouse the previous year.
Stage Whispers correspondent Kimberley Shaw has attended more than 30 productions in WA since theatre returned in that state. She reports on how theatres are managing.
While much of Australian theatre patiently awaits to return, Western Australian school, community, pro-am and professional theatre is tentatively returning - but what does it look like and how does it work?
Following the NSW Government’s directive in March this year that all non-essential gatherings of 100 people were banned, Arts Theatre Cronulla was unable to proceed with the remaining planned performances of Don’t Dress for Dinner and the theatre was literally plunged into darkness, with the set being mothballed.
Theatre management is now very excited to be able to reprise the show for a limited number of performances from 13-28 November. There will be ten shows in total, including two Sunday matinees.
