The 20’s And All That Jazz

Wagga School of Arts 160th Anniversary year is finishing with amazing flair.  They have secured professional Director /Choreographer Joseph Simons to direct and choreograph their final show.

Joseph recently appeared on tour in Wagga Wagga in August performing 100- Years of the History of Dance.  The show was a huge success and the audience members were captivated by the skills of this outstanding dancer’s one-man show.

Having the talent of Joseph Simons work with a Community Theatre Company is a wonderful coup and will totally reflect the celebration of 160 years of cultural contribution to the Wagga Community by the Wagga School of Arts.

The 20’s and All That Jazz a 1920’s a musical recollection compiled by John O’May, John Diedrich and Caroline Gillmer, has been adapted by Joseph into a sparkling musical cabaret.  A cast of eight has been selected and includes DesiréBurger, Hannah Reid, Georgi Lamond, Rachel Rienits, Erin Brown, Stephanie Roe, Lynden Clark and Tracey Lonergan.

The 20’s and All That Jazz features the music of the 1920’s and the Musical Director is Nichole Rosengren.  Coupled with Joseph Simons this is a duo of great talent and inspiration.

Wagga School of Arts is presenting The 20’s And All That Jazz in the CSU Riverina Playhouse opening on November 29th and running four evening shows and four matinees closing on Sunday 8th December. Bookings are now open.

Absolutely Fabulous

BEYOND BANK WAGGA

presents

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

a Wagga School of Arts production.

Directed by Anna Swift, a cast of experienced actors brings to the stage the story of Patsy and Eddy, their family and friends who make this comedy of madness scream to life  constantly lubricated with endless bottles of Bollinger Champagne.

Both Patsy and Eddy are striving to hold on to their youth and will go to any lengths to keep the ugly word ”age” out of their life and conversation.  Jo Darby in the role of Patsy and Elizabeth Woods in the role of Eddy bring these two flawed females to the stage managing to layer their characters with a sense of vulnerability.

They are surrounded by an equally talented supporting cast with Eddy’s level headed daughter Saffy played by Rachel Rienits, Eddy’s kleptomaniac mother, played by Lynden Clark, and the totally vague and witless assistant Bubbles played by Georgi Lamond.

The play also reveals parts of Eddy’s past in the form of former husbands, their partners and Patsy’s sister Jacks, played by Bec Huxtable.  Other members of the cast include Josh Steadman, Patrick Kenny, Shaun Perry, Barbara Landrigan, Antonella Salvestro, Damian Triulcio and Silas Darby.  The characters from Eddy’s past, offer some revealing and interesting stories of her life that has been interspaced with vices, dalliances with men, and many embarrassing moments.

The world of high fashion serves as the perfect backdrop for the show.  Everything about “Absolutely Fabulous” is risky , yet the cast deliver a side-splitting and spectacular comedy that offers total entertainment.  This adaptation of “Absolutely Fabulous “was written by Faeron Wheeler

Sunday July 28th at 3.00pm
