East Gippsland theatre-goers spoiled for choice

Thursday 28 February

The theatre should be treated with respect. The theatre is a wonderful place, a house of strange enchantment, a temple of illusion. What it most emphatically is not and never will be is a scruffy, ill-lit, fumed-oak drill hall…

With these words by Sir Noel Coward, the launch of The Forge Theatre and Arts Hub 2013 Program was held on Wednesday evening amidst a buzz of colour and movement, attended by 100 invited guests.

 

The 2013 Forge Theatre and Arts Hub Program contains 30 theatrical shows, and East Gippsland theatre-goers are spoiled for choice. There is something to suit all ages and tastes, including drama, comedy, classical and popular music; a fund-raising variety show, musicals; the Café Culture series and spokes tours; a children’s series and a morning music series.

The program was put together by theatre manager Janice Haynes, with expert artistic co-ordination of the launch provided by Sue Lake-Harris.
