Moruya’s dynamic Red Door Theatre Company is on the road this weekend for the final performances of their contemporary satire “All in a Night’s Work”.

“Going on the road has been a brave,” says Company President and cast member Anthony Mayne.

“Bums on seats is key, ours is a region of people who don’t tend to prebook tickets, which can be terrifying going into a performance,” Mr Mayne laughs.

On the back of a successful season at Moruya Public School, the troup moves to the Narooma Kinema on Saturday night (June 30) and the Central Tilba School of Arts Hall on Sunday afternoon (July 1).

Local performer and South East Arts board member Shanna Provost is a fan.

“Local director Linda Heald has cleverly matched a group of lively actors with varying acting experience and talents,” Ms Provist says.

“[The show has] vignettes from The Naked Vicar to Monty Python to Fry & Laurie, Wayne and Schuster and the Muppet Show – that will lift your heart and keep you chuckling throughout.

“The post-interval parody about the distractions and rabbit holes we go down when we go online, written by American Ian McWethy, shines a hilarious light on this medium now embedded into our daily lives.

“It has been a while since live theatre has blessed the boards of the Kinema, so it’s an opportunity to support local community members joyfully giving their all – a wonderful experience we don’t get to have often enough.”

A live orchestra adds to the experience and the depth of local talent on show.

Tickets are $15 to $20 and available online and at the door.
