FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Rehearsals Bring New Changes and More Laughter to the Set Cairns,
14 May 2015
It’s at the half way mark and rehearsals for JUTE Theatre Company’s latest production “Is My Lipstick on Straight?”
The script has been tightened, pulled apart and put back together again, new musical material has been added and there has been more laughter than most would see at a days’ work.
Suellen Maunder, Artistic Director of JUTE Theatre Company and Director of the show says: “I love the musical moments, it’s like being on the set of a musical at times. I can’t help laughing, the insights are so spot on, and Susan delivers them with such flair.”
“The interesting thing about this production is that the actor is the author, so we’ve been honing the material as we rehearse, and I find myself bursting with laughter and then tearing up as Susan pulls us into a heartwarming moment.
” The one-woman show, written and performed by Susan Prince, takes us on a semi-personal journey through a theatrical life.
As Susan herself says: “I sometimes feel as if I sacrificed my kids for my life in theatre. Luckily, they thought their lives were wonderful, and that makes me so very glad and grateful.”
