We are pleased to announce that tickets for our next production, the comedy PLAY ON, directed by Liz van Eck, will be available for sale soon.
This is Liz’s first directorial production having worked as an Assistant Director for CLUE On Stage in June 2022
The synopsis of PLAY ON is: One plucky community theatre is about to produce a show called Murder Most Foul, a new “murder mystery play” with the same title as an Agatha Christie novel but with no relation whatsoever. The director/theatre manager, Gerry, thought producing the play was a good idea since the inexperienced playwright has agreed to let the company perform the show for no charge. Gerry, however, had no idea what disasters awaited her: the show is hilariously amateur, the “murder mystery” plot doesn’t really have a murder, and to top it off the playwright keeps changing the story and script only two days from its premiere! It doesn’t help that the cast is disgruntled, and the playwright accidentally deletes the entire sound effect board. All of the disasters come to fruition in Act III when the company performs the actual show with hilarious mishaps as every turn. Play On! is a hilarious love letter to community theatre.
Tickets will be available from Monday 27th February online at www.ballinaplayers.com.au at $28/adult and $18/child 16 & Under. For those who are completely unable to use their credit card online, we will have 2 sessions at the theatre 24 Swift St Ballina just for you: Monday 27th February from 9am-12; then on Wednesday 1st March from 2.30-4.30pm. We will have an announcement for an exciting new ticket outlet which can be used from Monday 6th March at a later date.
