My first theatre memory: It was 1983 when my Mum took me to the theatre. We saw The Sound of Music. And I loved it. I loved the music, the choreography, the characters and their relationships and of course the story, but there was one moment that made me feel absolutely electrified.
In conversation with 'The Lighthouse Girl' Director Stuart Halusz.
The Lighthouse Girl by Hellie Turner, based on the novels by Dianne Wolfer, is a uniquely West Australian story. This gentle play takes place in the Great Southern region of WA, based primarily in Albany. Evocative and powerful, this play embodies a powerful and truthful sense of a pivotal time in Australia's development as a nation.
Tartuffe is quickly approaching! We chatted with actor Alison van Reeken (The Caucasian Chalk Circle, Blithe Spirit, Dinner, Dust and more) about the play:
Many will remember the production Dust by Suzie Miller which Black Swan presented in 2014 as the World Premiere. We are thrilled that Dust, a Rio Tinto Black Swan Commission work, won Best Script at the WA Premier's Book Awards last week! A huge congratulations to Suzie for this outstanding award.
