“Night Of The Ding Dong" #63
3 - 24 April, 1970
A play entitled "The Night Of The Ding Dong" by Ralph Peterson was presented as our opening production of the new Millicent Civics & Arts Centre that opened in April, 1970 as part of the Millicent Centenary year celebrations.
The Cutting Room Floor proudly presents their devised piece 'Poly' for Fringe World 2013.
"Can you fall in love with more than one person at a time?
Poly is an exploration into the lives of three women, who happen to find love in the same place. A provocative new play that confronts conventional relationships, the apparent success of monogamy and the struggle to be understood. As their first production for 2013, The Cutting Room Floor begins the year with a bang. Poly is a beautiful journey into something that has never been explored on the Australian stage before. A show of vivacity, beauty and fascination that is not to be missed

The test of great theatre are these questions: would you see it again and would you recommend it to friends? For Paige Newmark's Much Ado About Nothing in Kings Park for Shakespeare WA the answer is a definite yes! Set at the end of the Second World War, complete with Army Uniforms, Vera Lynn tunes, a Hollywood themed masked ball and references to Churchill this production is full of laughs. And I mean genuine laughs. It is wonderful event theatre, outdoors, on the grass with a picnic and the actors ranging about full of verve and sparkling with wit. The man of the moment is David Davies who gives us a Benedick to remember as one of the great performances of this role. I am not kidding but not many people will realise that unless they travel around the world to see the various companies tackle this play as this reviewer has done. I put him on a par with anyone I have seen on the West End, National Stage, RSC or Broadway. It is what is called a tour-de-force performance. Cavalier and with an incredible voice that is not only audible at the back but also has nuances and changes in tone which is the one great challenge the actors face in this setting. He is funny, he is heroic, he is full of life and energy and he gives us all we could wish for in Benedick.
The economy is in trouble and The Business Council is very worried about its members. So they take drastic action – they blackmail a wealthy young tax avoider, Sam, to start spending in their members’ shops. But there’s a problem – he’s a Scrooge who hates shopping!
