New Children’s Show – The Treasure Traveller

The Treasure Traveller

Annabella is finding growing up hard enough without her mum making her move to the boring, little town of Banana. If that isn’t bad enough, being made to work at her clumsy uncle’s second hand shop after school makes life even worse. That was until Annabella found a magic book in her uncle’s store, which whisks her away to adventurous worlds. Discovering lands where talking jungle animals roam, ghost pirates feud and the exotic Carnivale never ends, Annabella discovers that maybe life isn’t so hard when you to learn how to have fun.

Written by Julie Bray and Johanna Tough, this exciting new children’s show, The Treasure Traveller, will have you laughing, dancing and singing these September school holidays!

New Show – Front Row Follies

follies

 

From enthralling comedy and musical performances to World War II romance, Front Row Follies kicks off 2014 with a night of theatre to be seen by all and to be missed by none.
With help from our musical guests EnChord, we will present to you four short plays, written, directed and performed by local Brisbane talent, each ready to take you on a journey through the different genres and styles of theatre.

Les Anglais (The English)
Playwright: Mitch Broom
Director: Gene Smith

It’s the year 1940, and World War II has spread throughout the globe. William and Genevieve find themselves evacuated to the British countryside, and though they are safe from the war, they are not safe from the feelings they begin to develop for each other.


YOU START HERE
Playwright: Vivien Whittle
Directors: Mirjana Ristevski, Michael McNally, Crystal Arons

Life seems sweet until you realise everyone’s into boys except you and no- one else loves Xena: Warrior Princess… A one-woman show about how liberating life can be if you have the courage to let it.


SURPRISE
Playwright: Julie Bray
Director: Gene Smith

Marlene is spending the early hours of her 30th birthday cleaning a theatre with her colleague, Audrey. Marlene doesn’t have any extravagant plans for her special day, however Audrey does…


TUESDAYS ARE FOR BILL
Playwright: Paul Hannah
Director: Gene Smith

It’s a bright and chirpy Tuesday morning at the cemetery when long-time widow June and newly widowed Mandy meet for the first time. As they talk about their lives and tribulations, a friendship begins to form. Meanwhile, the ghosts of their late husbands get up to some mischief of their own.

 

Front Row aims to continue this Showcase as a yearly event, in which people from the Brisbane community are invited to come forward and offer their writing and/or performing talents in a chance to put their work on display for all of Brisbane to see.

Bookings essential through our booking pageemail or by phoning 0488 011 219.

Bump

We’re proud to announce our next production, Bump, will be opening on Saturday 2nd November at 7:30pm.

Bump is a hilarious insight into how a theatre group deals with “bump in” and “bump out” of a play with crazy actors, ditzy directors and egotistical writers. Who will get bumped off? Who’s the killer and will the show go on? Find out in the world premiere of this outrageous new play.

Fans of Agatha Christie will love Leah Pellinkhof and Julie Bray’s light hearted take on the murder mystery genre.

Leah and Julie are the team behind Front Row shows like My Pet Human, Hamilton Hall the Musical, Tuckshop, Macbeth for Wayward Girls and Holding Hands in Public.

Bookings essential through our booking page, email or by phoning 0488 011 219. All tickets now $15.

Audition Notice – The Odd Couple

Next on our agenda is The Female Odd Couple by Neil Simon directed by Dierdre Robinson. A March season means we need to cast asap so auditions will be held at 1pm on Sunday 16 Dec at Hamilton Town Hall. Dierdre has supplied the following notes on the roles to be filled for those interested in participating. If you have a hankering to tread the boards again (or even for the first time) in 2013, why not come along? We have 8 roles to fill using a range of ages and levels of acting experience:

• The odd couple are Florence, the fussy one, and Olive, the messy layabout. These two characters should be similar in age, old enough to have families.

• Manolo, the Mexican upstairs, and Jesus, the brother of Manolo, are the dating interest and ideally will be in the same age range as Florence and Olive.

• Four girlfriends, smaller parts, visit to play Trivial Pursuit.

Audition Notice

New show opens this weekend

Front Row Theatre’s season of The Works of William Shakespeare by Chicks is very close (and very short!). Opening night is this Friday 30 November and the show will play for just three weekends.

Five good reasons to see the show:

1. Satisfy your curiosity about what happens when the all time greatest writer in the English language meets up with two very good writers from the 21st century.
2. Break the monotony of wall to wall Christmas parties – see a show instead. Or see a show first and then make a grand entrance!
3. We have air conditioning (and we know how to use it).
4. At $18 ($13 concession) we are still a cheap and always cheerful night out.
5. See Leah Pellinkhof live on stage. This is for all of you who have seen shows written and/or directed by Leah including My Pet Human, Hamilton Hall the Musical and Holding Hands in Public. Now you get to actually see what this very talented lady looks like. (Not bad at all, as a matter of fact!)
