Ipswich Little Theatre is back on the boards

After COVID-19 shut down Ipswich Little Theatre in 2020, they are finally heading back to the boards.

COVID-19 restrictions have forced everyone to think outside the box in the way we interact and the community theatre is no different.

Back on the Boards is the first season for 2021 and the show is actually several comic pieces shown in two different venues simultaneously in a creative way to comply with COVID restrictions.

Ipswich Little Theatre publicity coordinator Robyn Harm said this season will be different from others.

“We will hold the plays in two venues, the Incinerator Theatre and the adjacent Jean Pratt Building,” Ms Harm said.

“As we can only have 45 patrols in each venue, the actors will perform twice and the audience will swap over at interval.”

The season runs from 4 March to 14 March and includes several comic pieces, Time Flies by David Ives, Post-Its (Notes on Marriage) by Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman, The Holiday and A Blind Date from Duets by Peter Quilter, How Could We Ever Forget and An Indelicate Interruption by Ian Pullar.

Helen Pullar is producing with Jim Orr, Ian Pullar, Helen Pullar, Relle Scott and Jane Sheppard directing.

There will be four performances on Saturday 6, 13 March at 6.30pm and Sunday 7, 14 March at 1.30pm.

Bookings have opened, online at www.ilt.org.au or at the Ipswich Visitors Information Centre, Queens Park, in person or phone 3281 0555.
