Fan hopes to bring back buzz
WHEN Kay Jackson returned to Warwick after a 20-year stint away, she was saddened to discover the Warwick Little Theatre group was no longer.
Mrs Jackson was a member of the group from 1983 until 1988, and said she was now hoping somebody with the right skills and passion would step up and get it running again.
The group used to practise at Maid Marion's Castle on Dragon St and would perform shows at the town hall.
During her time in the group Mrs Jackson took part in theatre restaurants and murder mystery nights, and said the group and its performances were well received by the public.
This was at a time before DVDs, but she was hopeful the concept could be successful again and is looking for others who share her passion for the dramatic arts.
“I love to perform on stage – I get a real buzz. If I was going to go into acting I would have chosen theatre because I love to see people laugh, smile and enjoy what we do,” she said.
Mrs Jackson said she was surprised to hear Stanthorpe still had its theatre group running and was hoping Warwick could soon boast the same.
“I think that is incredible – they must be getting fresh blood in all the time,” Mrs Jackson said.
