FROM THE EDITOR
Welcome to the July edition of Theatre & Z”Arts.
Well a new financial year is here... boring !!! haha... but what is very exciting is the
amount of awesome and quality productions on out and about all over the state.
I can’t stress enough how much I want to hear from all the regional theatres, art galleries,
bands, clubs, playwrights and authors - anything to do with our vibrant WA performing
arts scene.
For example I have heard of a show that will be presented in
Dowerin in October... and I look forward to telling everyone about
it... I may even have to get the TAZ Trips going again and organise a
group of Perth theatre lovers for an adventure.                                                 Factoid 1)The Eagles lead singer
                                                                                                     is also their drummer.
If it’s on in Western Australia, we want to know about it. So get in
                                                                                                     Factoid 2) The original title

                                STAGE SCHOOL:      Stage Door School of Performing Arts expands
                               The Stage Door School of Performing Arts under its                          Summer Fun with Stage Door
                               Director Ian Westrip OAM will be reopening its doors
                               in the Northern suburbs this winter, now located at
                               Perth Modern School.
                               This amazing opportunity for all of their students has
                               occurred after an invitation from Dr Robyn White of
                               Perth Modern School allowing Stage Door the use of
                               their heritage buildings located right on the campus.
                               Dr White says, “We are supportive of performing arts
                               at Perth Modern School and are pleased to welcome
                               Stage Door. We are looking forward to a very positive relationship.”
                               This fabulous chance to expand has been accepted with great excitement from all involved with Mr
                               Westrip saying, “We are so pleased to be able to offer our programs to the school and the community
                               through the auspices of Dr White,”
                               Stage Door was originally located in the heart of Subiaco, however due to the proposed closure of the
                               Lords Centre they accepted an invitation by Kent Street Senior High School (situated in Victoria Park)
                               to move onto their campus. Still wanting to be positioned in the Northern suburbs those working at

                               Great writing is a collaborative work of writer and editor. Authors cannot look objectively at their own
                               work, so often miss errors that are obvious to a reader. That’s why they need an editor. The workshop
                               is designed for aspiring writers, editors, proof readers and journalists as well as all people who want to
                               improve their written communication skills, especially writers of non-fiction, short stories, novels and
                               other narrative writing.
                               Participants should have written at least one story or article intended for publication, and preferably
                               bring it to the workshop.
                               Frank Smith has more than 30 years experience in writing, proofreading and editing. He has worked in
                               government, industry and universities in both Australia and the US.
                               As a writer he has contributed paid articles to more than 30 magazines and newspapers in four
                               continents. He regularly writes for The Countryman, Have a Go News, Australian and New Zealand

                               His special skill is in helping writers improve the readability – the ease with which a reader
                               understands the writer’s message – of their work.
                               The workshop will be at the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers
                               Centre, 11 Old York Rd, Greenmount on Saturday 17 July from 1pm to

   “Sometimes you have to go places with characters and emotions within yourself you don't
   want to do, but you have a duty to the story and as a storyteller to do it.” ~ Hugh Jackman
  “It's funny that you spend all your time when you first graduate from drama school thinking,
   'I wish someone knew who I was', so you could get a job. But then, when you start to become
        known, you work just as hard to be seen differently. Basically, I do it because I like it.
  It isn't something I've chosen to do for fame. It's my job and I take it seriously.” ~ Lisa McCune

                                                   the news. We’ve generously been allowed to use the

    we can finalise the purchase in full, and then comes the exciting part – raising funds to renovate the

    our needs.
    “Every day and night of the week the Barracks is in use – be it for rehearsals, improvisation

6                      Theatre & Z’Arts - July 2010
                                PROFESSIONAL THEATRE:         Eileen
Dawn Pascoe has more reasons than one to be flying high these days as her theatre company
Natural Wings, takes off, in part, to a $4,500 arts grant awarded by the WA Department of Culture and
Arts.
This talented and vivacious young woman, who has honed her spectacular craft within the world of
theatrical, Circus and aerial dance, is taking a three-member troupe to one of the largest festivals in
Norway, this August.
“It was thrilling to learn we had been awarded the grant as it will enable us to perform in Europe for
the first time, “said Dawn who, at 27 and recently married, is also set to offer one of her most
compelling and emotional theatre acts – Eileen to Perth in July.

                                                                Depicting the life of Eileen, her
                                                                eccentric     grandmother,      Dawn
                                                                dramatically portrays a woman of
                                                                grace, beauty and a sense of humour
                                                                that depends on her inner strength to
                                                                survive when her world spins out of
                                                                control and others claim her soul.
                                                                Eileen grew up in the bush with her
                                                                four brothers, cared for by her father.
                                                               When she married an engineer her life
                                                               changed – for the worse. Only referred
                                                               to as HIM, the husband not only
                                                               abused her in every way, put their five
children into foster care but organized for Eileen to be institutionalized and receive electric shock
treatment.
Regular beatings at the institution saw Eileen fight back but it was an unforeseen tragedy that sent
her over the edge.
“Every trapeze routine shows the emotion of Eileen and what she is going through, rather than
watching a pretty trapeze act,” said Dawn who, by using the trapeze and her body, magnificently
wrings every emotion from torture, betrayal, grief, making love and rape, and offers it to the
audience.
The use of monologues, music and narration add emphasis to the story. Singer, musician, actor and
brother of Dawn, Clint Strindberg adds a new dimension to the performances as these siblings
showcase their talents.
All this innovative talent, energy, and passion has produced a
gutsy, emotion-filled, powerhouse of choreography and
creative imagery that will leave audiences speechless at the
event but talking about it for weeks.
Having honed her skills as an actress at WAAPA, Dawn shifted
her focus to circus and aerial dance after gaining a place at
CircoArts, New Zealand where she stayed for three years
developing her new found skills and performing in circus
theatre shows throughout the country.
Her natural ability to combine her skills with her passion for
this art, Dawn was funded to take part in the International
Aerial Dance Festival in Colorado, USA.
Dawn’s first self-devised show The Life of Eileen now reworked
and re-titled, Eileen stole the “Best Solo Show’ at the Wellington
Fringe Festival in 2006. It has since been performed in
Christchurch and will be entertaining audiences in Perth for
four nights from July 14 – 18 at The Chapel Space, North Perth,
commencing at 7.30pm
This show has adult themes and suitable for 15+.

                              COMMUNITY RADIO:         Living Histories
    Kalamunda Community Radio 102.5 FM
    has shown its initiative and launched a
    new program which is believed to be a
    first of its kind.
    Working in conjunction with the
    Department for Communities, over the
    past few months a number of presenters
    at KCR have been quietly pre-recording
    a number of stories from the Living
    Histories series of personal memories of
    life during the 1950’s. There are close to
    800 stories in the series, this was
    obviously quite a mammoth task.              Hon. Robyn McSweeney MLC
                                                 with presenters at KCR 102.5FM
    The Department for Communities
    initially invited members of the public to write their memories of life in the 1950’s and these were
    initially published in 2007 in hard cover ‘coffee-table’ book form. The response was so great that a
    further invitation resulted with a colossal amount of wonderful stories that not all would fit into the
    printed form. Therefore they were recorded to disc for viewing as an e-book which was published in
    2009.
    One of those entries was written by KCR presenter Denni Cee, who instantly saw an opportunity too
    good to pass up. She proposed that KCR record and broadcast these stories individually as a
    mini-segment of approximately 10 minutes each.
    Denni said “initially I thought it would be a simple process, in fact it became a huge undertaking and
    the project itself has been of mammoth proportions”    .
    The Living Histories Broadcast Project was officially launched on June 30 at the station by The Hon.
    Robyn McSweeney, MLC in her capacity as Minister for Communities, Volunteering, Seniors, Child
    Protection, and Women’s Interests. She praised the work of all involved at KCR, not only in the
    production of this project, but also for their very considerable commitment to the day to day
    functioning of a community radio station, all of which is offered and undertaken on a voluntary
    basis.
    Denni will continue to co-ordinate readers for the stories. She plans to approach local community
    theatre groups with a view of accessing additional readers with good speaking voices to volunteer to
    read a few stories each.

                              COMMUNITY THEATRE:             My Fair Lady
Classic musical brought to life with a more-than-fair lady
by CHRIS THOMAS

                                 ,
DESCRIBED as “the perfect musical” My Fair Lady is coming to Roleystone Theatre this July.
Based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, it follows Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle who becomes
a lady after speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins.
The original 1956 Broadway version of My Fair Lady was a smash hit, followed by the famous film
version with Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison, and numerous stage revivals.
Kimberley Harris as Eliza Doolittle and Darren Bilston as Professor   Director John Ramsell, a 28-year theatre
Henry Higgins                                                         veteran, chose to direct the Roleystone
                                                                      production because it was the first show
                                                                      he ever appeared in.
                                                                      While My Fair Lady is extremely
                                                                      well-known, Ramsell said he had no
                                                                      intention of simply copying the film.
                                                                      “Our production is, of necessity,
                                                                      performed on a small stage and a much

                                                                      remain true to what I saw as the writers’
                                                                      original intent.

“The main challenges are accuracy in the music and the presentation of accents, idiom and costume.”
Mainly involved with Roleystone Theatre, Ramsell has also worked with the Gilbert and Sullivan
Society of WA, Playlovers and Omnibus Productions.
He said the appeal of My Fair Lady came from the fact it was now regarded as a classic, thanks to its
music receiving a large amount of radio airplay in the mid-1950s and 1960s when the show’s
popularity was at its height.

“The story isn’t just about Eliza’s transformation
– a romantic attachment develops between her
and the professor, given their close working
relationship,” Ramsell said.
My Fair Lady plays at 8pm July 23, 24, 28, 30, 31,
August 4, 6 and 7 with a 2pm matinee on July 31.
Tickets are $20 adults, $15 children – book on
9399 4016 or through BOCS on 9484 1133.
Roleystone Theatre is located at 587 Brookton
Highway, Roleystone.

formally through lectures and workshops which we intend to hold as we gather momentum.”
“We have established a link with the organisation Australian Screen Editors which has a
predominantly East Coast axis - although some of our members are also members of ASE. ASE runs
a number of lectures/workshops each year and we are looking at ways of tapping into that
resource.”
The next meeting of the editors group will take place Wednesday July 14 at 7:00PM at Clancy's in
Fremantle.
