Woy Woy Little Theatre presents “Sylvia”


Sylvia is a delightful and funny play. It opens next Friday, April 27.
If you like dogs and a good laugh then you will love Sylvia!There is plenty to laugh about as the middle aged mid-life crisis Greg comes to realise what he needs in his life with his wife Kate.
It’s a play about a couple coming to terms with how over many years of marriage the relationship evolves or change for both.
Add a street-wise lovable labra-doodle looking for a home to the household and the laughs come thick and fast. Love is at the heart of this play so I see it basically as a romantic comedy even though beneath the laughs are a few home truths.
The author A. R. Gurney wrote this play with great dialogue and witty scenes. He has devised a clever twist to ‘the other woman’ paradigm!
The performance of Greg’s wife Kate (Susannah Bonnor), is pivotal as she is the one with further career ambitions to fulfill whilst Greg (Duncan Mitchell), is just a bit lost in life.  Greg brings home a stray dog Sylvia (Kellie Martin) from Central Park New York and so the comedy begins. Three other characters: Tom, Phyllis and Leslie; all played by Mark Austin, try to advise Kate and Greg, how to handle Sylvia and other matters.
You may well find yourself laughing, smiling and crying as you get swept along to New York to meet with Sylvia!If you haven’t booked yet you can do that online here.

WDG presents Andy Kabanoff’s “End of the Line”

End of The Line

By Andy Kabanoff


From the Russian revolution to Rooty Hill

Wyong Drama Group proudly presents “End of the Line” by local playwright Andy Kabanoff whose “Sepia Secrets” production was greatly loved by audiences in 2016.


This prequel, set largely during the Russian Revolution, is loosely based on his grandmother’s life. Orphaned as a child in 1890s Poland, she achieved prosperity in Imperial Russia, lost most of what she loved in the old Yugoslavia, and lived to a great age in her adopted Australia.


It is the life of a woman and her family dramatically affected by world events, having to escape from Russia during the Revolution, and from war-torn Europe after years of German occupation and war. Time is fluid as an old lady and her grand-daughter relive her memories and find humour in the midst of the chaos.


A large and talented cast will bring this epic story to you, once again in the Grove Theatre. Directed by Andy Kabanoff and Gabrielle Brooks.


End of the Line runs from  From May 25th to June 2nd at Wyong Grove Theatre, North Rd, Wyong.


Details can be found on the website. Bookings will be open 16th April online or via phone: 1300 665 600

WTF Festival 2018

This month Jopuka Productions hosts a NEW Short Play Event on the Coast. The WTF festival features eight short plays from more than 30 emerging writers, directors and local performers. The entertainment includes live music and an upcoming local comedian as MC. A highlight of the event will be the first Central Coast performance of the best new work from this year’s Newcastle Fringe Festival. Specially commissioned by Jopuka Productions, “Because there was fire” is a darkly-comic coming of age story set against the backdrop of an Australian bush fire. On a warm summer night, two teens leave a neighbourhood barbeque and vanish without a trace. Clara is fed up with her suburb and everyone in it. Andrew is the rich new kid in town. Sparks fly when they meet, and they hit the road, looking for adventure, but soon learn escape isn’t so easy, and fires can burn out of control. The play was written Jamie Hornsby, who has been described as one of South Australia’s most exciting new playwrights, and it’s directed by Danielle Brame-Whiting. Performances are at the Youth Arts Warehouse in Donnison Street, Gosford on Friday 20th at 7pm and Saturday 21st at 6:30pm.
