An outright parody of the telecommunication industry;  The industry that has driven us all to the brink of insanity at some point in our lives as we attempt to get a handle on a new world of electronic communication that changes the game, constantly. 
Whether it be trying to grapple with a new Computer, iPad, phone, iPhone, Bluetooth, or even a bloody tv remote!, we can all relate to the frustration of learning new technology. 
......THEN, there’s the people we encounter! – the Call Centre, the Help Desk, the phone salesmen, the telemarketers, and on it goes.  
In this production, we’ll take a cross-section of characters  in a fictional company – from the Call Centre, the Help Desk, the field Staff, and management – plus a hapless householder, walk them all through a series of experiences and interactions, throw in a corporate re-shuffle, add a twist to finish, and voila!  A 2-act Play  of pure farce ... with a bit of song thrown in for good measure!    OPENS JUNE 28 / Discounted tickets available online from April:
  SECOND HALF OF 2016:

......The central character is Jasmine who has accepted her life choices with good grace.  Audiences will enjoy getting to know her, and Jane – who is reflecting on having her newly retired husband underfoot... constantly!  Whilst they may grit their teeth at Flick, they could feel like giving Cyril a good shake!  Meanwhile, they might want to give Sydney a big hug and a darn good talking to!  And then there’s Arthur!  Ahh, how to describe Arthur.  Guess you’re just going to have to figure that out between laughs.

IN 2013: MONEY HONEY at Theatre On Brunker, Adamstown
...MONEY HONEY is a musical adventure through the money maze.  Pearl and Shirl are a pair of cleaners in a Brokerage House with a talent for sniffing out secrets - mostly through their well-honed snooping skills.  They're determined to find out how to get rich and embark on a journey of discovery.  However, what they find in their travels - which involves a series of observed 'live' tableaux - is that they're in a minefield of stereotypical, farcical, characters and experiences that leave them shaking their head/s in disbelief, disquiet, and downright disgust! 
A nonsensical romp filled with laughs and some cracking money songs, the Novocastrian Players strut their stuff demonstrating a wealth of stage experience and a glorious sense of fun.  The director's inclusive casting style provides opportunities for members of the cast to shine in small ensembles as well as full-cast scenes.
