Fantastic successes for CROSSING!

Wow! Just home and almost recovered from a hectic ten days away with CROSSING from Blackheath and Wentworth Falls through to Lithgow - and that was just a few of our public performances, while over 6,000 schoolchildren have sat entranced and rocked with laughter at schools performances as far afield as Oberon. The amazingly versatile and hard-working team of actors and stage manager has been shifting sets from our blue and yellow bus lent by the generous Blue Mountains Bus Company into school halls and venues such as Treeview Lifestyle Resort's lovely Community Centre; stage manager Jess has been up at all hours washing and ironing costumes and repairing sets with gaffer tape - and we have all fallen in love with the clean air,  wide spaces and warm hearts of the people from the Blue Mountains and beyond. What an experience this is all proving, with plenty of backstage dramas that prove live drama is edgy, fascinating work.

 

You have a last couple of chances to see this amazing play for yourselves: the Union Theatre, Lithgow at 7pm Thursday 6th June (yes, this week!); at Brush Farm in Eastwood 7pm Saturday 8th June (sorry, 2pm show sold out), and 2pm and 7pm Saturday 15th June at the magical Richmond School of Arts. Book at MCA-TIX 1300 306 776 and www.mca-tix.com.au and find out more at our website www.blaxlandanddaughter.com. See you at the theatre!

Carl Batchelor, Lisa Bluthal and James Lee play forty characters among the three of them. Live theatre at its best!
