ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING
Our production of ALL THE KING’S WOMEN recently concluded after seasons at Phoenix Theatre (Hamilton Hill) and Camelot Theatre (Mosman Park). Although there were problems with the Camelot venue, overall the production went very well. Audience response was enthusiastically positive – so another artistic triumph, folks! ARENA would like to thank all those involved in the show for such a fabwunderbliss production.
This is being held early in the new year – coinciding with a visit from some of our International ARENIES. Members can contact Simon for details.
THE STORYKEEPER 2011.
Yes, this production just keeps going from strength to strength. Next year will see the nineteenth year of this very popular Storytelling Theatre production. It already has a swag of bookings, and we ain’t sent out any publicity about it yet! Scheduled for in and around Bookweek in August 2011, and aimed at Primary Schools, this is ARENA’s most successful production.
The next ARENA Meeting will be held in January, so stay tuned for details. We’re in a strong financial position, so will looking for projects to produce over the next twelve months. If anyone has ideas or a production they roooolllly want to do, then chat to us before the meeting. Other issues to discuss are finalising the new Constitution, Storage Space and Fundraising.
ALL THE KING’S WOMEN
Stories of Elvis told through the eyes of fifteen women.
Some enthralled. Some appalled. All obsessed!
This comedic collection of monologues and short scenes is for Elvis fans and any lovers of having a good laugh and a great night out!
From the saleswomen who sold the 11yr old Elvis his first guitar .. to a TV producer and a network censor dealing with Elvis’ appearance on the Steve Allen Show .. to a manic shopper encountering the King at 3am in a supermarket and thinking he is there to steal her bananas .. to Whitehouse Secretaries dealing with an unexpected arrival .. to Warhol’s groupies negotiating an endorsement .. to feuding saleswomen desperate to sell him his 100th cadillac .. to a female Elvis impersonator competing in the Nationals … these are the stories of ALL THE KING’S WOMEN.
Nine Scenes. Twenty-two Characters. Eight Time Eras. One King.
The show is full of Elvis music and nostalgia that will transport its audience through scenes from 1946 to the present day. A show full of dance and drama, songs and silliness, and mirth and memories. You don’t have to be an Elvis fan to laugh at this crazy collection of women and their outrageous stories, but if you are, you’ll love it even more during the King’s 75th Anniversary year.
