TO celebrate its twelfth year since its formation, In Theatre will be performing “Under Milk Wood” by Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas.

This radio play, a play for voices, was first performed in 1954 by an all Welsh cast.

Andrew Gray, producer/director has some innovative ideas for removing the play from the radio to the stage, while at the same time preserving the lyrical quality of the script.

A small Welsh seaside village of Llaregyb awakes to a new day.

Two voices, Michael Bevitt and Damon Counahan set the scene, linking the characters and their relationships to one another.

The blind sea-captain, Captain Cat, Govind Hodgson, presides over the community from his exalted position in the attic of the Schooner House.

Other main parts are played by Sara Francis, Tim Murphy, Chris Pratt, Tinonee Pym, Ellie Seckold, Emma Thomson, Megan Harris, Ellie Sautelle, Grant Heino, Emma Clift, Chelsea Beadman, and Sarah Edmunds.

The thirty-five cast members are very enthusiastic and this augers well for future productions as over half are from Years 9, 8 and 7.

Some parents attended the post workshop meeting on Thursday, April 26, but more will be needed in the July School Holidays, July 9 to 22, to help with production.

Bump in (setting up the stage, completing the costumes, finalising the props) will be held on Sunday, July 15.

Geoff Bevitt has offered to construct the surreal set.

The next In Theatre workshop will be Sunday, June 10, Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Performances are July – Friday 20, Saturday 21, Friday 27 and Saturday 28.

It is hoped the group will receive yet another nomination for the Canberra Area Theatre Awards in December.

A small wooden boat is needed as an additional prop. Can anyone help?
