Sorell locals share Short stories

Local theatre group Sorell on Stage is combining four plays into one at the Sorell Memorial Hall next month for its original production ‘Four Shorts’.

‘Four Shorts’ will feature four short plays including ‘The Bridal Brood’, about a group of eccentric bridesmaids dispensing sage advice to the bride; and dramatic tale ‘The Reunion’, about four old school mates and their mysteriously missing friend.

‘The Interview’ takes a hilarious turn as a TV host gears up to interview the world’s most famous person; and ‘The End of the World as We Know It’ explores the perils of being an Influencer unable to connect in the modern world.

The production features a cast of 17 Sorell locals including some well- known performers and some new faces, such as Marco Ghedini who is making his stage debut.

“I saw at the last show that the society was calling out for new performers,” he said.

“I’m excited to be stepping outside my comfort zone.

“As a police officer by day this is something completely different for me.”

Craig Cherry, who recently moved to Sorell, is returning to the stage after more than 35 years.

He said following his daughter’s footsteps onto the stage was a great way to become more involved in the community.

“I’ve seen a few Sorell on Stage shows and my daughter was lucky enough to play the lead in ‘Alice’ last year,” he said.

“It’s been 36 years since I stepped on stage so I’m a little nervous.

“But the team have been so welcoming and rehearsals have been a joy.”

‘Four Shorts’ will run from 3-5 August. Tickets are available at the door, by calling 6110 9941, or at www.sorellonstage.net
