Do you think only actors need to rehearse?
An amateur theatre company's opening night of Hamlet is approaching, and Gerry the Stage Manager and his backstage crew are racing against the clock to perfect their complicated scene changes... Battling against cluelessness, absent crew members, an ambitious producer and Gerry's meticulous staging chart; the team soon discovers that in the world of theatre anything that can go wrong at the last minute, most surely will!
Will the crew pull it together? Will the show go on?
Or will it all, along with Gerry's sanity, fall to bits?!
After being entered into the 2014 Zimbabwe Invitational One Act Play Festival held in Kadoma in September, this production came away with six awards; including Best Technical and Best Director.
Easy Stages will be followed by a short Variety Bucket of Repteens original material and performance pieces from throughout the year. Come along and see how we do things!
For any social events all are welcome and there is no cover charge … day visitor cards available for non-members to buy drinks.
