‘Calendar Girls’ (CG) the play is based on a true story about a group of middle class, middle aged women in the provincial north of England who raise money for cancer research and treatment by producing a ‘nude’ calendar, featuring themselves – something along the lines of what the ‘fire-ies’ do here.
Alas, my time in Broome has expired without me achieving all I set out to. C'est La Vie.
Now back in Fremantle, I am looking around for part-time work, appropriate accomodation and a theatre gig or two. If it's not too late already, I'd like to get involved in the forthcoming one-act festivals. Any suggestions (by private message) greatly appreciated.
For the past 3 months, I have enjoyed the position of chairman of Theatre Kimberley - as far as we know, the ONLY theatre group based here in Broome. As such, I would describe it as 'semi-professional' rather than 'amateur' community theatre.
Hardly twelve months after relinquishing my position as President of Phoenix Theatre and moving to Broome to enjoy semi-retirement, I find myself not only back in full-time employment in the high-pressure world of native title law, but last Monday evening I was elected President of 'Theatre Kimberley' - the largest community theatre group I have ever been involved with - not only in terms of territory, but also members, budget and performance program!
