Call for Submissions
Oct 2018 
Northern Light Theatre Company is seeking submissions/expressions of interest from prospective experienced directors for its October 2018 season.

Submissions should contain as much detail as is available but can be expanded on later.  The Committee may contact directors for further information regarding shows considered suitable.

Please note that the Company will give preference to large cast musicals which appeal to our audience base.  New shows with widespread appeal, or older shows which are still relevant would fit the bill.  Our audiences appear to favour shows they are familiar with and which contain a dance component.

Please address your submission to the NLTC Committee and forward to
contact@northernlight.org.au .

The Pajama Game

Director: Max Rayner
Co-MD's: Tammy Papps & Bec Mason

Choreographer: Linda Lawson

Romance is blossoming at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Handsome new Superintendent Sid Sorokin falls hard for feisty Union rep “Babe” Williams, and, despite her dismissal of all things love-related, it seems she’s falling right back. That is, until Sleep-Tite employees are refused a seven-and-a-half cent raise, and the pair find themselves on either side of the union protest that results.

The Pajama Game features hit songs including “Hey There,” “Hernando’s Hideaway” and “Steam Heat”.

Friday 24/3, Sat 25/3
Friday 31/3, Sat 1/4 Mat, Sat 1/4 Evening

Our October production of Herman and Stewart's Mack and Mabel.

DIRECTOR: Andrew Hawkins
Vale Margaret Moore
NLTC was very sad to hear of the passing, recently, of one of its founder members, Margaret Moore.

Margaret was actively involved in the company for many years, not only as a founder member, but as President for several years. She was absolutely dedicated to the Company until she was too old to carry on, but even then she still came to see many, many shows.

She ran the company with an iron fist in a velvet glove, and was always there with a joke, or buttered teacakes for everyone for morning tea. On more than one occasion she put her hand in her pocket to keep the Company above water, by way of a gift or a loan.

Her two main claims to fame were as Aunt Eller in our second production of Oklahoma, and as Calliope (Orpheus' Mum) in our production of Orpheus in the Underworld. She may be most recently remembered as Higgins' mother in our production of My Fair Lady.

Her funeral will be held at the Smithfield Memorial Park Cemetery towards the end of next week. Details will be provided as they become available.

Margaret was a lovely lady who was kind to everyone and she will be sadly missed and very fondly remembered.

Vale Margaret.
