Launch into 2023 at The Playhouse

LOCAL theatre lovers who attended the recent launch of the Hobart Repertory Theatre Society’s ‘2023 at The Playhouse’ got a special sneak preview of what’s on offer next year.

Hobart Rep president David Clements said after the pressures of recent years it has been a delight seeing audiences flock back to the theatre.

“We are pleased to announce that we will present five shows in 2023, and we are also pretty confident that we have something for everyone in the 2023 line-up,” he said.

Hobart Rep’s 97th year of entertaining local audiences kicks off at The Playhouse in the April school holidays with ‘Anne of Green Gables – The Musical’.

Then comes the dramatic story of ‘The Winslow Boy’ in June; followed by the comedy ‘Let’s Kill Agatha Christie’ in July/August.

Tennessee Williams’ classic play ‘The Glass Menagerie’ takes place in October; and the final show just before Christmas will be a very funny take on the nativity tale ‘Jingled’.

David was Master of Ceremonies at Hobart Rep’s ‘2023 at The Playhouse’ launch. He has had a regular involvement in local theatre since his days with Uni Revue back in 1981.

Since then, he has stage-managed a wide variety of plays and musicals in various venues including the Peacock Theatre, the Theatre Royal and of course at Hobart Rep’s beautiful, heritage-listed venue – The Playhouse Theatre in Bathurst Street.

David has occasionally had fleeting moments on stage but generally leaves the acting performances to his wife, Kathy Spencer, a veteran performer of many years.

Kathy last performed in Hobart Rep’s October production of ‘The Last Resort’, for which David was – you guessed it – behind the scenes as stage manager.
