    Synopsis

    Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends Susan, Heidi and Larry on the eighty-eights. With the cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation about what to write about. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what to write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival's deadline and dream about the show changing their lives.

    [title of show] —taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show] — follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. [title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre, a uniquely American art form, and to the joy of collaboration.

    The musical received a Tony Award® nomination for Best Book of a Musical in 2009.

    Meets 4th Monday of the month
    7.00 - 9:30pm at the Delatite Hotel - casual participants very welcome.

    This friendly group meets to read and discuss plays of all sorts, from ancient classics to modern Australian drama. Everyone is welcome to come along, take a part, or just listen. The readings enable people to discover more about drama, express themselves by playing different characters, enjoy the entertainment of theatre, and analyse how playwrights obtain their effects.  

    We rent the scripts from the Victorian Drama League, which has a library of thousands of plays, choosing them according to suggestions from the group.

    The group meets on the fourth Monday of the month at the Delatite Hotel. All welcome. Gold coin donation.
