Performers of all ages wanted!

Here’s a chance to be involved in a play about the Old Mill – no, not the theatre, but the theatre’s namesake, the actual Old Mill on Mill Point Road near the Narrows Bridge (a graphic representation is in the theatre’s logo).

Drama teacher Chrissy Tallowin, involved in theatre for the past 28 years, is devising a project called Sails and Tales – A History of The Old Mill and wants to hear from you. She’s looking for people of all ages to perform in the voluntary, not-for-profit project.

“It is for the promotion of the Old Mill to attract more visitors to the museum and South Perth,” she said. ”The project is running in conjunction with the City of South Perth council.

“The outline of the project is to tell different events that happened at the mill, such as its erection, the raid, the fire that decimated it, its re-build, the protest about its demolition and what the mill means to people in South Perth.

“There will be the use of a narrator to link the stories together, as well as poems, music, movement and straight acting. It will be part of the South Perth Fiesta and hopefully be performed in February. “

To get involved, call Chrissy on 0410 406 102 or email (don’t leave a message here on the website).
