Supa productions Inc, one of Canberra’s mainstays in amateur musical theatre is taking steps to broaden its appeal to Canberra audiences. For the first time Supa Productions will be performing a non musical, Noel Coward’s “Blithe Spirit” at Theatre 3 in October this year.
Supa’s president Garrick Smith said that, “the opportunity came about when we realised we couldn’t fully cast La Cage Aux Folles to give Canberra audiences the quality production that Supa has become known for. We had a commitment to our members for two shows a year and there was not time to prepare a new musical.”
Garrick went on to say, “Supa has been discussing the options for putting on a non musical and so we grabbed the opportunity when it arose.”
This production is to be directed by Ron Dowd who has had some 20 years experience in all aspects of amateur theatre and has had prior experience with Blithe Spirit. Ron said, “I was involved in a production of Blithe Spirit in 1993 and have wanted to do the show again. The situations that Coward develops in his play make for great comedy and the show has kept its appeal since the day it opened on Broadway.”
Auditions will be held for Blithe Spirit on Saturday 6th of August.
