Show needs more men

MORE men are needed for the Winton theatre-restaurant show That’s Life.
Organisers Alister Gray and Jolene Kynan-Wilde, of Winton, held auditions for the show on Sunday.
It will be the first performance by the new theatre group, Winton Theatre Friends.
More than 20 people auditioned on Sunday, and they were ‘‘just so fantastic’’ more women had been added to the show than intended, they said.
However, Kynan-Wilde said although some men auditioned, more were needed.
‘‘If they can sing contemporary songs, anything from Elvis to Justin Bieber, we would like to hear from them.’’
The duo said they needed about 12 singers, with a split of 50-50 roles for men and women as the show would feature about 10-12 songs in each half.
‘‘It would be really good to have men of all ages take part,’’ Kynan-Wilde said.
The couple, who have both been in many musical theatre shows and perform in a band, have been talking about setting up a theatre group in Winton for years.
‘‘We have been waiting for other people to put their hands up and start one… There is so much talent around Winton,’’ Kynan-Wilde said.
That’s Life will be staged on Friday, December 2, and Saturday, December 3, at the newly refurbished Winton Memorial Hall, with a buffet supplied by Country Manor Catering.
Gray said there had been such a good response so far there could be a third show.
He also said although the show would be afun, social night out, the content could be a bit ‘‘risque with adult themes in the language’’, and recommended a R18 rating.
Tickets will cost $60 per person and will go on sale at the end of this month.
