The next show at Greytown Little Theatre (GLT) will be ‘Quick & Quirky’ a season of short plays (all less than 10 minutes) and monologues. The programme, featuring several GLT members, is diverse, entertaining and should prove to be a lot of fun for our audiences.


‘Smoke and Mirrors’ to be performed by local comedienne, writer and radio host, Lucy Cooper, tells of the trials and tribulations of a director presenting an outdoor Shakespearian production in the grounds of the local pub (reminiscent of GLT’s Midsummer Night’s Dream at Cobblestones Museum a few years ago).


Anna Logan and Egan Tearle, last seen together in ‘Ladies Day’, share the intrigue in ‘A Ring is Round it has no ending’ by New Zealand author Lindsey Brown, as Alice is shopping for the perfect engagement ring, but her criteria for perfection are not quite what you would expect from the blushing bride.


Melinda Francis, returning to GLT after a number of years, together with Julia Harris, last seen in the ‘Blue Murder at the Blue Parrot’ and ‘Ladies Day’, bring us the very amusing ‘One Solitary Line’ where two Shakespearian actresses, before heading onstage, bemoan the fact that Shakespeare never wrote any good roles for women, not even a soliloquy!


‘Camp David’ by Tony Domaille features Victoria Ross who co-directed ‘Ladies Day’ in 2023 and Greg Webb who played Ned Kelly in the production of ‘Kelly’ in 2020. They play a couple who head off for a weekend camping in the wilderness  but with murderous intent.


Melinda Francis and Dave Adams will share with us ‘Quiche isn’t sexy’ and ‘It’s terrible being nice’  by American author Gabriel Davis and Julia Harris will bring us two short monologues by Joyce Grenfell called ‘George don’t do that’.

 

The programme will likely include the Kuranui College’s short excerpt from ‘Othello’ that recently won the ‘Colin Palmer, Spirit of Shakespeare award’ at the Regional Sheila Winn Shakespeare Festival. This short piece includes three student members last seen in the murder mystery, ‘Blue Murder at the Blue Parrot’.

 

The show will be performed cabaret style. You are most welcome to bring your own (BYO) alcohol and nibbles.

Studio 73 - 73 Main St, Greytown
