Barb's in Boston

The flight from Melbourne was uneventful. I was sitting next to a very nice woman whose life was like an episode of Days of Our Lives. She was on her way to Barbados to celebrate her 60th birthday with three girlfriends. Obviously loaded and spending most of her time travelling all over the world.

L-R Maggie McInnes, Bryan Thomas, Rosemary Hare, Les Terrill, Marian Sinclair, Ray Hare It was Mothers' Day. The weather was a tad capricious, but the warmth of the applause inside the theatre was indisputable. Ellis Ebell was both MC and performer, and with him on stage were Marian Sinclair, Maggie McInnes, Rosemary Hare, Bryan Thomas, Ray Hare and Les Terrill. Legends all. And legends also whose names cropped as performers, directors, designers, movers and shakers of that era. Names like Laurie Gellon, in attendance in the audience, Brian Crossley, Vin Foster, Grahame Murphy and others. There was laughter and good humour, there were wry 'looks', there were reminisces and above all, sterl

Another 70th Birthday Event

The second of our three 'Pleasant Sunday Afternoons' will take place on Sunday 8th May. Entitled 'A Bakery Doth a Theatre Make', it takes us into the Albert Street era and covers 1969 to 1990. The very first production in our Albert St theatre was 'Barefoot in the Park' and Ellis Ebell will share some memories of that. WLT legends take the stage to reprise some scenes they performed... Ray and Rosemary Hare, Maggie McInnes, Marian Sinclair, Les Terrill and Bryan Thomas. These excepts include a scene from 'Journey's End' and 'Equus', and an Australian musical... but you'll have to be there to find out which one! Admission is free, no bookings required, and it starts at 2pm and is followed by
