Moree Arts Council Thespians proudly present The Red Barn

Uniteing Church Hall 29th April 30th April 1st May 13th May 14th May

With a star-studded cast of aspiring thespians treading the boards, the Moree production of Brian J Burton’s The Red Barn is set to put a whole new take on local theatre – and have the audience mirthfully mesmerised over three acts of delightful melodrama.
Written in 1963 and based on a true story from the early 1800s, The Red Barn has been lovingly recreated by Moree Arts Council Thespians.
The Red Barn is directed by Stevie Drenkhen with Merri May Gill and Joey Dixon heading up an eclectic cast of local actors that includes Tim Barklay (simple village idiot), Bernadette Quirk (witty sister of the heroine), David Watts (outraged father), Kate Brennan (doting mother), Rebecca Reardon (simple country girl), Kerry Cassells (manipulative gypsy woman), Angela Carroll and Jayne and Sammy McDouall (wandering gypsies), Greg Cumberland (rejected Love Interest), Greg Fisher (sexy maid), Alison Quirk (maiden of polested town ) and Michael Warick as the vengeful law officer.
The plot centres on a virtuous young girl, tricked by tales of marriage by a villainous squire, to whom she then becomes pregnant and subsequently disappears. It is humorous and fast-moving and audience vocalisation is encouraged.
The Red Barn will be at the Uniting Hall in Moree on the following dates and times: Friday, 29th April at 7pm; Saturday, 30th April at 7pm; Sunday, 1st May at 2pm; Friday, 13th My at 7pm and Saturday, 14th May at 7pm.
