Celebrating Dads

In honour of all the wonderful dads – present and past – the unsung heroes; the ones who cop the flak and suck it up; the ones who put their lives on the line for humanity; the ones who stand up and risk all for their family; the ones who don’t have kids of their own but step into a fathers role when they’re needed; the ones who don’t ask for/expect/or need accolades; the ones who play a joint mum AND dad role; the ones always ready to lend a helping hand without favour/bias/prejudice;

This one’s for you ….. you outstanding EVERYDAY HERO


So, 11 months after the much anticipated Wireless Chronicles: Series 4 had to be mothballed – thanks to Covoid – I’m shaking off the dust and opening a new show in February.

Sponsored by the NCC for the start of their new annual arts festival, I’m gathering a small troupe to produce the UH! OH! REVIEW: When the things you planned don’t go to plan.

An evening of Comedy – Sketches, Songs, and a few bewildering confessions – based on the theme, the troupe will their view on those spectacular debacles that started out with almighty promise and ended in abysmal failures. 

ONE SHOW ONLY – at the Royal Exchange Salon Theatre, 32-34 Bolton Street Newcastle 2300. February 20, 7.30pm. Bookings are essential and numbers are limited due to Covoid requirements. Full house is expected so walk-ins may not be available. Phone 4929 4969 for inquiries and bookings


…a second installment for the second half of 2021! Don’t miss it

The Wireless Chronicles Series 4: I SPY

Devotees of “The Wireless Chronicles” series are waiting in anticipation for the fourth and final series opening in ### ##PRODUCTION DEFERRED DUE TO COVOID19 …Stay Tuned

Set in the 1950s – the era of the Cold War – this show is titled “I Spy”, with stories and songs from the decade.  A decade where the new crazes Rock and Roll and television were just emerging in Australia; a decade where fledgling inventions in Australia were about to become worldwide, household names; a decade where unknown aussies would emerge to stardom in a number of fields; and a decade when the world would begin to see Australia as more than a dot at the bottom of the globe.

Interspersing some of the great music from this decade are multiple episodes of the Devious Digit of Destiny – A crime/comedy farce delivered as a Live Radio Play.  On stage, the readers add to the farce with various props and sound effects.  Those who have been following the series already know to expect the unexpected and will be keen to hear; the latest schemes and scams of our bunch of bumbling crooks; the newest blunderings  of their local bobbies  ;  the inept fumblings of our ageing tarts;  and just how many new characters will pop out of this mix in this final episode!

Featuring;  Maureen O’Brien;  Grant Bailey;   Stevi Cannon;  Amanda Broberg; John Dickeson; David Benge; & guitarist /sound effects wizard Peter Sesselmann.  Written by Maureen, the script is filled with plenty of wisecracks and one-liners and in WC tradition, it’s filled with quirky, oddball characters bearing wacky names.

Multiple Venues, Multiple Dates:   Wed 11th March/8pm/Royal Exchange Salon Theatre, Bolton Street Newcastle;  Fri 13th March 8pm/venue to be advised;  Sat 14th March/2pm/St Augustines Hall, Winsor St Merewether;  Sun 15th March 6pm/The Dungeone/ Glebe Road, Adamstown.…….SEASON CANCELLED DUE TO COVOID19
