Indee theatre on the move

AS NOTED last week, The Indee Theatre's on the move (again) - this time from Palmwoods to Yandina.

Consequently all hands are on deck, except mine.

I'm pushing 82 and that's enough exercise for anyone.

It's so easy to overdo it.

My only exertion for the past decade has been delivering eulogies at funerals of friends who've exercised.

It's been 40 years since the Yandina School of Arts housed a theatre group (it was the Nambour Lind in a previous incarnation) and the stage area now needs big help, including a serious power upgrade.

The strain of whether the work will be completed in time to stage a short-play season before battalions of Santa-hatted elves start tinselling the Coast is the sort of stress that caused medieval monks to start sleeping in their coffins.

Yes or no rests on a knife-edge. As it is, the actors have been standing by for so long that their feet have gone to sleep.

Maybe they should just follow Coolum Theatre Players' production of Sylvia and head for next March.

Meanwhile, casting for January's The Reluctant Dragon is close to complete and some very good young talent emerged at the recent Yandina auditions, proving that parents don't necessarily get upset if their children show an interest in the arts instead of sport.

While another three youngsters would be welcomed to join the village children in this fun-filled holiday production, director Carol Burls says she can happily go with those she has chosen so far.

If any children would like to audition for the Yandina January pantomime, call Carol on 5472 8200.
