FABULOUS FOLLIES FROLIC

Held annually as part of Escape Art Fest, the Follies Frolic is a free, family-friendly event where everyone is welcome to participate, or just sit back and watch. There are guaranteed laughs and fun with Theatre Sports, improvisation, monologues, skits, and previews of our upcoming productions.

OPEN REHEARSALS

Whenever possible, we open our rehearsal doors to the public for a special open rehearsal, to demystify the process of acting and staging a production. Community members participate in the actors’ warmups, watch the actors and director working on scenes, and get a sneak preview of the upcoming production. They also participate in a Q&A session with the cast and crew, to help them learn more about the world of play, and what goes on behind the scenes.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Follies is privileged to be part of the great Milton-Ulladulla community. We try to be involved in as many community events as we can, in this very active community. Our members and volunteers regularly participate in yearly community Christmas Carols. Our children’s productions (all ages shows) are usually accompanied by a handmade scarecrow of the lead character for the Milton Scarecrow Festival. Audience members are also  encouraged to dress in costume for a special performance during our all ages productions.
We aim to engage work experience students from Ulladulla High School in all of our productions, in all aspects of technical production, including: sound; lighting; projections; stage management; stage hands; and assistant directors.

We are also extremely grateful for the ongoing support of our community and local sponsors. Individual Follies members are also regularly recognised by the community for their amazing talent.

WYRD REHEARSALS UNDERWAY

The cast and crew of Milton Follies’ June Production of the hilarious and topical ‘Wyrd Sisters’ have hit the ground running.
The show, a thought provoking comedy (think “MacBeth meets Blackadder), follows the adventures of three country witches who take on royal politics and the power-hungry, mad King. They meet with fierce resistance, in the form of a travelling performance troupe hired to rewrite history and spread ‘alternative facts’.
Director K-M Doyle was thrilled with the audition turn out, and the subsequent casting.
“This play attracted new blood for Follies which is always exciting. We have found: Sarah, a former professional, British and French actor; Faron, a recent Charles Sturt drama graduate; Jodhi, a former professional actor and acting teacher, (now well-known locally as ‘The Scrappy Sculptor’); Ed, a writer, actor and director of short films; Gemma, an experienced puppeteer; and Layissa, a young, emerging actor, who has recently returned from drama training in America. We’ve also been blessed to find Ella, who is being mentored in Stage Management, and is proving herself to be perfect for the position, and an invaluable asset. These new recruits, combined with the wealth of talent already in the Follies stable, are uniting as an insightful and dedicated ensemble, and I am so proud of the work they are already producing.”
Follies President, Ruth Myers, herself making her stage debut in this production, is delighted with the show so far.
“Terry Pratchett’s® Discworld® series is a firm favourite with readers worldwide, and I am delighted that a director with K-M’s experience and passion has volunteered to bring ‘Wyrd Sisters’ to Milton Theatre. It is a privilege to be a part of an amateur cast that is receiving such professional training – from the industry’s leading voice training method, to ensemble building, deep character development, and individual tuition. I am hopeful that our patrons will be treated to a show that makes them laugh and makes them think, and makes them proud to be of a community that produces and supports great talent.”
‘Wyrd Sisters’ will open at Milton Theatre on the June Long Weekend.
