Council employee by day to ‘flamboyant director’ by night, one Wagga local is rising to the challenge. Mel Donges, 33, will be directing School of Arts Community Theatre’s first show for 2019.
Ms Donges said she will be leading a cast of seven, with three females and four males.“This is my first one to direct,” she said. “I am very nervous, but also very excited.
“It’s a good show for me to start with because the dialogue isn’t hectic and the characters are very real which means we can apply method acting.”
Ms Donges said she has a very hands-on approach especially considering her background as a choreographer which she will also be using for the show.
Members of the cast are Iain Wright, Leah Ellis, Dominic Hort, Tim Phillips, Jessica Brodie, David Downey, and Ms Donges. Musical director is a newcomer to Wagga Hannah Caterer.
