Don't miss the return of Job's Right!
Here are eight more chances to see the run-away hit of January. Touring the coast again with a tighter, slicker production by Suncoast Repertory Theatre Inc and theatre s.
Writer Brett Klease and director Simon Denver have taken another look at the script to see what improvements can be made, if any, so even if you saw it before, it'll be worth seeing again. The idea of putting a day-in-the-life of a painter and decorator on stage took the Sunshine Coast by surprise, but the audiences were delighted. Even the non-conventional end was enthusiastically received by frequent theatre-goers and novices alike, with the opportunity to thank the author and cast in a much more personal way than the usual curtain-call.
Many tradesmen and/or their wives took the bold step into a theatre for the first time to see what this play about them was all about. The response was that the play was very true-to-life, every detail was accurate, every character very real, every situation had happen on a construction site. And so they came back again and brought their friends and colleagues. But, not every one got to a show, so here is your opportunity to see what the buzz is all about.
Job's Right has a house under renovation with a house-proud owner from hell (and her lusty daughter). You'll see the work get done, sort of, along with the arm-chair expert opinions, smokos, one-upmanship, jokes (practical and otherwise), set-ups, put-downs, and all the things that happen on a million job sites across the world every day (as attested by a contractor from New York City who saw the show in Maleny). It's real life, not pretend or contrived.
It's also a very adult show with very frequent coarse language, drug references, sex references, and adult themes; but what would you expect from the blokes-being-blokes world of Job's Right, right?

Ya gotta see this sell-out cult of a play
4 down 4 to go.
In Nambour, it became the hottest ticket in town with the last performance overflowing with an eager audience. With 2 shows only in Noosa and 2 shows only at Lake Kawana and tickets selling well, this may be your best chance to see the show on the Sunshine Coast before it travels to nearby regions. The phenomenon shows no sign of slowing as tradies are talking about bringing their whole crews, not just a mate or two, they enjoyed the experience so much; and for many it was the first time they have seen live theatre, ever.
A reminder that it's a blokes-being-blokes world, a physical, masculine energy inhabits the stage, so the language is very blue, very often, and the topics of conversation are impolite and politically incorrect. But it's hilarious.
New production sponsors Zinc FM and Hot 91 FM will have tickets to giveaway in the lead up to the last performances, but you'll have to listen to know how and when.
