Rollicking fun and plenty of talent

THE Playhouse Theatre is the place to be this month for some good old-fashioned rollicking Aussie fun as the Hobart Repertory Theatre Society presents its production of ‘On Our Selection’.

Portraying the misadventures of the iconic Australian characters Dad and Dave, the play offers a cast of local talent and a three-piece bush band.

Hobart Repertory Theatre Society president Liz Lewinski said the company was extremely pleased with the line-up for this classic Australian comedy.

“We were quite overwhelmed with the casting for this show – pretty much the cream of local theatre will be on stage,” Ms Lewinski said.

“Distinguished Hobart actor and director Robert Jarman stars as Dad, alongside equally well-loved actors Andrew Casey, as Dave, and Noreen Le Mottee, as Mother.

“Also joining the talented line-up are Ivano Del Pio, Nicole Farrow, Damian Brockie, Trevor Gallagher, Jon Lenthall, Steven Jones, Kate Choraziak, Luke Visentin, Deidree McMaster and Tara Carroll.”

Directing the show will be Rod Anderson, who has had an extensive career as both a performer and director stretching for many years from musical theatre to TV.

He has directed for the Melbourne Opera Company, Victorian State Opera, Melbourne Theatre Company and Playbox (now Malthouse).

On Our Selection will be at The Playhouse Theatre from Friday 14 August to Saturday 29 August.

Performances will begin at 8pm Wednesday to Saturday, with matinees on Sunday 23 August at 3pm and Saturday 29 August at 2pm.
