Dandenong Ranges OAP Festival


We had a great time at the DROAPF. As usual. Well done to Matt and the rest of the Gemco crew for putting another great festival.

There were some great plays put on by old friends and (hopefully) new. 

Hopping the Bags picked up Best Drama and Best Original Play came third in the People's Choice award, as well as nominations for Best Actor for Bruce, Alex and Andrew and Best Director for Michelle. The utterly amazing set won an adjudicator's award for Steve and Dave. This set has to be seen to be believed. It looks great, is completely functional, and fits into a trailer. Engineering and art all in one.

Locked had Best Actress nominations for Kaity and Helen and Kitty picked up an adjudicator's award for the "Here's Johnny" moment.

Kill a Better Mousetrap earned Sarah a nomination for Best Actress and Aron for Best Director.

The competition was strong with a lot of GREAT plays. Seriously - get to a festival. There is amazing stuff being put on this year. I've laughed and cried and had my world views challenged and I only got to see about half of them so far. I can't wait to see more.

We move straight on to the Mount Players in Macedon this weekend. I can't wait.
