appleloft!, the fringe, TiNA and others.

So, Appleloft! was last Friday night. It was pretty sweet.

We had some lovely tunes from Rob and Mark, poetry from Doug (who also created an indie film script/send-up with Rob and Kirby which was seriously funny) and other performances from Nathan, Joe, Duffy, and myself – plus the Summit (‘Who or What do you think should be PM that isn’t currently running for parliament?’) and the Holes stories.

Thankyou so much to everyone who performed and everyone who attended. We look forward to seeing you all at the Fringe version of Appleloft.

Speaking of, the Sydney Fringe Festival starts in about two weeks! Which means our show is in about three weeks! Tickets are on sale here and you can book subscriptions to see four or five different shows throughout the festival for a discount. We’d love to see you there 🙂

TiNA and the Crack Theatre Festival is the October long weekend in Newcastle, NSW – where we are presenting Applespiel’s Morning Breakfast Commercial Radio Show at 10-11am each morning. I am personally looking forward to this very, very much as I have never been to TiNA before and I can’t wait to see all the other works over the long weekend.

Other shows: next week at Carriageworks, the National Youth Theatre Company is presenting a series of new works as the first ever showcase of the NYTC. I’m performing with the Senior Ensemble and have been working with the Junior Ensemble as Assistant Director. You can buy tickets to the Senior Ensemble show ‘Growing Up’ here and if you enter the discount code RACHEL you’ll get cheaper tickets and the joy that comes from knowing you’ve used my name as a discount code. Tickets for the Junior Ensemble show ‘MUD’ and the Regional show ‘OUTBACK” are available through the NYTC website.

It’s going to be a busy few months, with shows and teaching pracs and thesis editing and camping ahead for the Applespielers. We hope that we’ll see you at the Fringe and TiNA/Crack Theatre Festival.

    Ooh, what were the Holes stories? I’m intrigued.

      A couple of months ago some surveyors (though at some point they were called Geo-Engineers) came to Rachel’s house and dug bathtub sized holes in the front and back gardens, to check the foundations and stuff. The house is going to be knocked down at the end of the year so a condo can be built, see. But the geo-engineers didn’t fill the holes back in, so two months later there are still two large holes and two large mounds of dirt and turf in the gardens. The back one cuts through the path to the gate. It’s awful. Anyway, we got people to tell an origin story for the holes, and the best one won. I think it was something about goats?
