The barbed quips the characters throw at each other are briskly paced, delivered with humour and intelligence and punctuated with judiciously placed laughs. Ms Page’s direction allows the characters to develop sensitively, unfolding in an unhurried manner never becoming strident or unlikable. They may be flawed but they are never un-relatable.
In between preparing for opening night of Seminar we also managed to cast our May production of Company!
And what a cast they are! Beaumaris Theatre is thrilled to be working with this talented group of musical theatre performers who are bringing Stephen Sondheim's classic musical to life.
This is a really collaborative team creating this show. Kirsten and Dan really work with us, finding the good and nudging us towards better. The cast are really giving and sharing. This show features a lot of high density speeches and monologues; It would be easy to be looking inwards as actors, but instead everyone is inclusive and sharing, looking for opportunities to bring everyone else into the scene.
2018 has been another year of outstanding success. It is tremendously rewarding to be able to report that our Theatre continues to give pleasure to our community, with more than 2,700 tickets sold over our four productions this year.
Meet the cast of Seminar who are bringing Theresa Rebeck’s provocative comedy to life this March at Beaumaris Theatre.
In Seminar, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard, an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmourned.
