Coolum Theatre Players

Classic TV hit comes to the Coolum stage!

Get ready, get set, GET SMART!
The ever-popular hilarious hit TV series from the 1960s is coming LIVE to the stage this month, thanks to the Coolum Theatre Players.

With a script adapted by Christopher Sergel from the original series created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, the local theatre company is breathing life into the well-known characters – Maxwell Smart, Agent 99, Chief and the kooky villains from KAOS.

Coolum Theatre Players turned 30 this year and the iconic show is the ideal one to finish the birthday year on a high note.

Experienced directors Kevin and Lisa Blair have been working solidly for the past three months with a cast and crew of more than 30 people to re-create 1960’s Washington DC and to bring the comedy to life for the six performances which kick off on November 16.

The Buderim couple have directed the show before at a theatre company in WA. They have won various acting and directing awards for a swag of productions over the past 20 years, as well as having attended the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) Summer School training. Since re-locating to the Sunshine Coast in February last year, they have been involved in directing and performing at various theatres including BATS in Buderim, Lind Lane in Nambour and CTP in Coolum.

“When Coolum put the call out for a show to wrap up the 2018 season we brainstormed a few ideas and then proposed Get Smart,” Mrs Blair said.

“It’s such a fun show, provides great acting opportunities for the 24-strong cast and is highly entertaining. It’s the perfect night out for a Christmas function or end of year catch up with friends.”

The cast includes some well-known faces who have acted before on the Coast, along with plenty of talented newcomers, making their stage debut. We cannot give too much away about the plot but we can tell you that your favourite characters will be there, along with the usual crazy secret agent gadgets from CONTROL headquarters and some amazing costumes and props reflecting 1960s style.

Tables of 8 are available for each of the six performances but are selling fast! You can book individual seats or a full table by heading online to www.coolumtheatre.com.au or by heading in to North Shore Realty in Coolum during office hours, or phone them on 5446 2500.

Opening night is Friday November 16 at 7.30pm. Subsequent shows are on Saturday November 17 at 7.30pm, Sunday November 18 at 2pm, then Friday and Saturday November 23 and 24 at 7.30pm and finally on Sunday November 25 at 2pm.

Guests are very welcome to BYO their beer, wine and soft drinks and nibbles or platters to share with friends to ensure a great time out while the show is underway. But be quick, we’ve heard that the villains from KAOS are stealing the seats, so don’t miss out!

CTP COMMITTEE 2018-19

Welcome to the new Coolum Theatre Players’ Committee.

Following the recent AGM, the new team (pictured) includes: Fiona Bastion, Mallory Young, Jenny Gilcrist, Greg McMahon and Julie Delmore.

Mallory Young has taken over the presidential reins from David Coleman.
Welcome Mal!

Here’s a little more info about our new president:

“Never work with children or animals!
I think I took this advice as a challenge as I have not only worked as an educator within the Drama field, but also as a Veterinary nurse. The logical progression? Becoming the president of The Coolum Theatre Players!

When I have trod the boards, I have been a temptress, an unimpressed matriarch and a despondent witch. I have also stumbled into many roles within the theatre family including Lighting design for Rock Eisteddfod (Miles, 2001), Stage manager for ‘Rapunzel’ (Margaret River), lighting for ‘Beauty and the Beast’ (CTP), and Sound for both ‘Spamalot’ and ‘The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’ (CTP).

Yes, you will see me generally skulking around backstage and maybe even on stage. I now look forward to a larger role as President of The Coolum Theatre Players!”
