SINCE moving into their plush new abode at the Plantagenet District Hall, Plantagenet Players have started to reel the punters in from far and wide.
Halfway through the four-night season of the musical/murder-mystery/ comedy You Heard What I Heard, the Players had already entertained folk from Collie, Mandurah, Ravensthorpe, Margaret River and Perth.
On night number three, the hall was near capacity again and the cultural haven of Forest Hill was added to the list of locales from which theatregoers had attended.
The main talking point of this production was that it was penned by Players’ own Roxanne Mills.
Mills, who worked with Michelle Harris to mould the show, is to be congratulated for her debut effort. It is no mean feat to entertain a hall full of people in the middle of winter.
Sure, the plot got stuck like a wintery fog in a few places, but the tight, witty and amusing script kept things ticking over, delivered in various amounts of hilarity by the cast. A laugh was never more than a few minutes away.
The only mystery left to solve is to see what Plantagenet Players serve up next.
