Two new Faces to the Rondo Theatre.
As a community driven theatre group, this is what we're all about with the productions we stage throughout the year in our intimate Greenslopes Street theatre. Meet Diane and Heather, both just beginning their involvement with the Rondo Theatre through their engagement in the September play, I ought to be in Pictures, directed by the stalwart Narelle Shorey.
Diane, a friend of the Shorey's from yesteryear and a backstage worker from many years ago, has continued to hone her craft and skills in the world of theatre in Tasmania where she's lived for a number of years. She's welcomed back as a 'new' face this year, with the role of Stage Manager for the September production in her capable hands. Playwright, the late Neil Simon, can rest assured that no stone will be left unturned behind the scenes in regards to props, decor and scene changes under Diane's capable management. This is sure to be a high quality production of what is one of Neil Simon's most relatable, humourous and heartwarming stories; a play about unresolved family life in the La La land of Hollywood in the seventies.
Heather is the real thing. As American as apple pie, she's a genuine 'new' face to the Rondo stage, and how wonderful it is to welcome her. An experienced performer, she brings freshness and light, both to the rehearsal process and to the prodcution itself, as she captures the joy and truth of Herb's "on and off" girlfriend, a makeup artist in the same ratrace business of movie making in Hollywood. Come and watch as these two wonderful new members add a polish and panache to the next play in the 2022 season at The Rondo in the heart of Cairns Cultural Precinct. September 16-24th.
