Get on the road for Caravan

THE cast and crew of the Murwillumbah Theatre Company's latest production Caravan are promising Tweed theatre lovers a night of laughs to keep them warm.

Despite some off-the-wall rehearsal locations, the team behind Caravan is set to tour their latest offering across the Tweed.

Due to location availability and budget restraints the company members have been rehearsing in a disused piggery outside of Murwillumbah, but publicity officer Rosemary Hume said the actors have been soldiering on.

“It has been bloody cold rehearsing at the piggery, but we are very grateful to have the space,” Ms Hume said. “Comedies always go down well, and this will be a great night out for adults.”

Caravan takes a light-hearted look at friendship, age and the holidays you should never have, while raising issues about fidelity and monogamy.

This is the first time the Murwillumbah Theatre Company has taken the show on the road.

“This is a new venture for the theatre company; we had to build a transportable set, but we are looking forward to a great production,” Ms Hume said.

“It will be a hilarious show, the cast have had a lot of fun with it and they are all still laughing after eight weeks.”

Caravan was written by Donald MacDonald, directed by Julie West and stars a number of familiar faces from the Murwillumbah Theatre Company.

The show will premier at the Cabarita Beach Sports Club this Friday and Saturday night before heading to the Cudgen Leagues Club on June 25 and 26 and Greenhills on Tweed in Murwillumbah on July 2 and 3. All shows start at 7.30pm.
