The Magic Hour
UpStage at the Playhouse presents The Magic Hour
Written & Directed by Vanessa Bates
Produced by Lulu Bell Productions
Fairy-tales reworked, funny, furious and fantastic, as tales of the marginalised.
Original fairy-tales were about bravado, fortune, destiny and courage. But always, watching from the edges, were the quiet ones. The bit characters. The weary mothers, the ugly sisters, the irrelevant queens, the grandmothers.
In The Magic Hour, they get their chance to shine.
From beach shacks and caravan parks, in Housing Commission towers and old school discos, in backyard gardens and to the familiar tune of one dirty big earthquake...
Welcome one and all to “the twilight hour, the dreaming hour, The Magic Hour”
Written and directed by Vanessa Bates, featuring Lou Chapman and Jan Hunt with music by Amy Vee, all award winning Novocastrian creatives.
