Volunteers cleaning the cottage

Big Thanks to our lovely ladies Helen Jennings and Katrin Chrysaphis for their wonderful work in the Cottage. I don’t think it has ever looked better! All our Costumes and props are so tidy, making it so much easier to find everything, and providing a much needed extra rehearsal space!

MOU with Culture Caf at the Community Centre

Memorandum of Understanding with the Culture Caf has just been renewed for another year. Culture Caf is a great monthly event open to the public, which showcases different Cultures each month, serving food from the country and providing entertainment. See Flyer at the end of the Newsletter. Each month I host the event and have the opportunity to share with the 150 attendees what is coming up at Z-PAC. Z-PAC provides costumes and props for the events too. Recently our Tech Director Jeff Sweeney installed their new lighting, ably assisted by Michael Doherty. In return, Culture Caf promotes Z-PAC to all its members and volunteers, who regularly attend our shows and even volunteer with us! Great to see community groups working together!

Z-PAC Performs out in the Community

This past month Z-PAC has performed shows at Torbay Retirement Village, the Focus on Friendship Morning Tea at the Urangan Community Centre and at the Seniors Expo. All were very well received and Torbay and Urangan CC would love more! It is great to be able to provide entertainment for those who do not have the opportunity to attend our theatre. Thanks to Steve Dixon for his involvement with me, and to Jeff Sweeney for his valuable assistance running the sound.

Best wishes and see you at Z-PAC soon! Liane Mills President read more

Wolf Lullaby

Directed by Jonathan Dunn

Auditions: August 12, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

2018 - Wolf LullabyIntriguing! Gripping! Breathtakingly audacious. WOLF LULLABY by Hilary Bell is coming to ZPAC. This play unapologetically packs a punch and will grip audiences until its final moment.
In a bleak, remote town, a small child is murdered. Suspicion falls upon nine-year-old Lizzie. Angela, Lizzie’s young mother, is convinced her daughter is guilty. She must make the torturous choice between ignoring what her intuition tells her, and presenting Lizzie to the police, with painfully extracted information. Lizzie is constantly haunted by a ‘Wolf’, which seems to overwhelm her and, in her words, ‘swallow’ her.
For the four characters of this play, all their accepted beliefs about the world are challenged. WOLF LULLABY explores the disturbing question “can someone be born evil?” The situation for these characters tests the bonds between parent and child, society and individual.
This is a unique opportunity for local artists to extend their skills and immerse themselves in a classic of Australian Gothic literature. With a small cast, the experience for both actor and audience will be intense. For more information, download an audition package. Auditions occur August 12, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm at Z-PAC Theatre – 15 Zephyr St Scarness.

It’s Only a Play – by Terrence McNally.

July 27-August 11 (8 shows only)

Directed by Mark Thomson and Theresa Saunders Some Adult language and Adult Themes. Not suitable for children. It's Only A PlayA sizzling comic celebration of theatre at its best and theatre people at their not-so-best. It’s the opening night of “The Golden Egg” on Broadway and there’s a lavish party at the producer’s townhouse as they await the first reviews. The action takes place in the bedroom above the party where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to be the first to hear the reviews. In the group are the excitable playwright, the unstable director, the pill popping, aging star with an ankle monitor, the playwright’s supposed best friend, the show’s producer, the acerbic drama critic and a wannabe young actor who combine to create a sharp and comic comment on theatre and the people who inhabit it. Tickets selling fast. Book today. Online Book or at the Box Office at the theatre Fridays 9-12
