SOME FORTHCOMING AMATEUR PRODUCTIONS OF INTEREST:
HASTINGS GROUP THEATRE is to provide an excellent fare as seen by casting your eyes over the following list of productions.
Noel Coward’s “Relative Values” will be produced by Mrs. Coleen Craven, in their Studio, 407W Queen Street, Hastings, 8 to 15th August, 1964, nightly at 8.
The H.B.’s Only Junior Group (Junior Group Theatre – 82 members) will present their selection of plays and excerpts from plays in their Studio in Mid-September.
Tutor: Mrs. Eva Farquharson.
Their Last Major Production for the Year will be: “The Women” to be produced by Mr. Warren Toogood, in their Studio, about the end of October.
That evergreen old favourite “The Belle of New York” will be presented by the HASTINGS MUSICAL COMEDY COMPANY in Hastings from 31st August to 12th September with a Napier season extending from 16th September to 19th September. The beautiful music of this light opera will be performed by a Company of seventy performers while the dazzling stage sets – especially hired from Hamilton – plus colourful costumes will make a beautiful spectacle.
For their next major production which is to be presented in the Napier Municipal Theatre for three nights on September 5th, 7th & 8th, the NAPIER REPERTORY SOCIETY has chosen Anthony Kimmin’s most amusing farcial [farcical] comedy “The Amorous Prawn’. This is an exceedingly funny tale of how a C.O.G.’s wife, inspired by a telephone call from some American tourists sets out making money out of official Army Headquarters.
Patrons are assured of a most entertaining evening as they watch the fortunes of Lady Fityadam and her “staff” rise and fall in their endeavours to make some quick money in an ever growing series of diverting incidents.
After a successful season with its 1964 production “Iolanthe”’ the HASTINGS LIGHT OPERA CO., has decided to produce a further “Gilbert and Sullivan’ opera, “The Pirates of Penzance” for its next production to be presented in both Napier and Hastings in April, 1965.
The company intends sparing no expense or effort in making this their biggest and best production yet.
The wardrobe, scenery, and effects are being hired from the Wellington Gilbert and Sullivan Society who had this specially made for their production last year.
