Premiere tonight for Cloudstreet
TONIGHT'S the night for the Coffs Harbour premiere of Cloudstreet, as CHATS Productions brings the stage adaptation of Tim Winton's best-selling novel to the Jetty Theatre stage.
Set in and around Perth in 1943, the play follows the fortunes of two families thrown together in a rambling old house.
Director Jean Newman sees Cloudstreet as a metaphor for Australia and its inhabitants, people from all over the world thrown together on an ancient continent.
CHATS has assembled a talented cast of players from throughout the North Coast to mount this epic four-hour production, filled with emotion, humour, meaning and challenge.
Cloudstreet will be performed on Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday matinees until August 27.
Because of the length of the play, evening performances will begin at 6.30pm and Sunday matinees at 11am.
Tickets include a meal and refreshments and each performance will include a meal break.
Tickets are $35 ($32 concession) and can be bought from Park beach Music ph 6652 3725.
