Now that I have all this time on my hands, I’m trying to get back into theatre.
I’ve just worked out that I did 15 shows — in one capacity or another — in just over 10 years with the Ignatians Musical Society in Brisbane. Not to mention countless choral performances, charity concerts, weddings and funerals.
1982 — The Gondoliers (crew member)
1983 — No No Nanette (crew member); The Zoo/Trial By Jury (stage manager); Guys and Dolls (crew member)
1984 — Utopia Ltd (cast member); How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (cast member — featured dancer!!!)
1985 — The Mikado (lighting operator); The King and I (stage manager)
1986 — Patience (stage manager)
1987 — Man of La Mancha (stage manager in the Princess Theatre); Iolanthe (stage manager)
1990 — Pirates of Penzance (cast member and stage manager)
1992 — Music Man (president); Ruddigore (president)
1993 — Showboat (president)
Can’t wait to get back into it, somehow, somewhere.
