Puffs

 

Or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic.
World renowned actor Miriam Margolyes commanded our presence for an exciting announcement of a new theatrical production set to have its Australian premiere on May 2018.

Some people are born with the capacity to do great things. Some people change the world. Some people rise from humble beginnings to defeat the forces of darkness in the face of insurmountable odds. Puffs is the story of the people who sit in class next to these people.
"For seven years a certain boy wizard went to Wizard School. this,, however, is not his story. This is the story of The Puffs who just happened to be there too.
A play for anyone who has NEVER been destined to save the world, Puffs is a Potter-inspired comedy for anyone who has ever felt like a secondary character in someone else's story.
Puffs gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three new heroes just trying to make it through magic school. It takes a second look at everyone's favourite world of wizards through the eyes of The Puffs, a lovable group of magical misfits.
Meet Wayne (Ryan Hawkes), a very averageAustralian boy who finds he is a wizard and that wizards a real. Wayne and his new friends Megan (Eeva /Seymour) and Oliver (Keith Brockett) try to keep their heads down and get a basic wizarding education, while a certain other famous boy - with a very peculiar-shaped scar on his forehead - sets out to make life at school increasingly eventful.
The producers of Puffs have announced that Rob Mills will join the cast as to play the coveted role of Cedric.
The full cast features Keith Brockett, Zenya Camellotti, Olivia Charalambous, Daniel Cosgrove, Kiana Daniele, Ryan Hawke, Gareth Isaac, Tob Mills, Eca Seymour, DAvid Tadman, Annabelle Tudor, Tammy Weller ad Matthew Whitty,
The original New York production has been updated for this Australian premiere by Matt Cox and Kristen McCarthy, both of whom are travelling 'down under' to bring this piece to life for local audiences with a whole new company of actors.

Season May 30 August 12. 2018

Puffs has on Jul 17 announced a final extension to its season at the Alex Theatre. It will now play an additional two weeks, concluding its record smashing Melbourne run on Sunday August 12. 2018
Puffs will not only become the longest running play in Melbourne this century by the time the season concludes, it will actually be the longest running play in Melbourne for the past 48 years. Noted theatre historian Frank van Straten confirmed that not since the famous season of The Boys in the Band at the original Playbox Theatre has a play run for so long. That season commenced on June 3. 1969 and closed on February 7. 1970.
The Puff season at the Alex Theatre St. Kilda, will have notched up 92 performances over the course of its 11.5-week season, which commenced on May 26. 2018, and wraps up on August 12. 2018. In the coming weeks, it will soon surpass Warhorse that ran for 10 weeks in Melbourne from December 23, 2012 through March 3. 2013.
Meanwhile the New York production of Puffs continues its record-breaking run at New World Stages, celebrating 500 performances Saturday July 21. 2018.
Audiences and critics have been overwhelmingly united in their response to Puffs since the show opened to rave reviews and continues to receive 5star praise from all those who experience its hilarity night after night.
Puffs continues its remarkable success with eight performances each week including two weekend matinees designated "family friendly" for ages 8 and above with evening performances recommended for audiences aged 15 years and above. i

Stock Take: Bitches in Business

Business is War & War is Our Business

Armed with the latest Givrnchy handbags, the ladies of Stock Take: Bitches in Business would like to cordially invite you to witness the wheelings and dealings if the WHOAWHAM Corporation. Taking you on an odyssey og absurd proportions , you enter a workplace as denocratic, responsible and sustainably minded as the political superpowers of today... and if you arn't in it to win it ... YOU WILL BE FiRED.
Stock Take: Bitches in Business is a shrewd, satirical, garish examination of corporate greed and its covert connections to gender politics, nuclear weapons and the decimation of our environmernt. These business-women, show-women, con-women embark on a destructive, fanatical, criminal crusade to enrich and empower the super wealthy elites and their empires. :We ever waste a good crisis! When bad times come we get whatever we want." (The CEOs of WHOA WHAM Corp) With these ladies at the helm you better beieve that The Doomsday Clock is set to 23.58 and counting.
Whilst looking at the intricate interplay between corporate power and women, qustions begin to surface: Must women enhance, protect, or camaflage themselves in order to succeed? What kinds of behaviour are swept under the rug? Do those striving towards a top lack moral responsibility? Or is the top position in and of itself minutely corrupt? Nothing fires up these women with killer instincts quite like a mega-buck deal...so strap on your designer dildos,...stilettos...stilettos anf remeber "Business is War and War is our Busienss/" The bitches are back in business and ready to play hardball.

The Owl and Cat
trybooking.com/174922

THE OWL & CAT THEATRE - VENUE CLOSURE.

Dear reader, 

A lot of electro swing, drinking & theatre making later... the time has come to close the doors on the old haunted house style theatre venue (with terrible signage. I know!) on swan street. Thomas & I got a crazy idea & we ran with it. 50 or so shows later - that crazy idea has grown into what I like to believe is now a key part of the Melbourne theatre scene.

I have had the joy of watching SO many artists grow & gain opportunities & experience, what a gift! The thank you letters & messages from artists who wouldn't be were they are now if it wasn't for something we did or said or simply enabled them to do, are enough to make my life complete. From musicians to set designers to actors & visual artists. The Owl & Cat Theatre has become known & appreciated as a space of equality, acceptance, & artistic expression. It's a home to fearlessness & compassion & heaps & heaps of dust. I have seen audiences filled with awe & inspiration & genuine insight. All of THAT I would pay twice for then again & again & even over once more. 

In the coming year we will continue our production partnership with our Alaskan family at The Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Alaska & we will continue to push boundaries & support new playwrights in different locations. I don't know where the wind will take us just yet but I am excited to find out. I look to MKA as inspiration in this challenging time & I look to all the people that gathered around 2 crazy kids fresh out of a drama degree who wanted to make new theatre. Thank you to those people. The ones who kept the space alive this long. (I tried to write a list of names & this paragraph actually got out of h& - you know who you are - I love you) 

I am honored that I was given this experience & I urge you too remember this at this time - I will remember it too.. we are not a building .. we are artists who work together to tell stories, stories that help people to understand themselves & others more. Theatre has an amazing ability to bring people together & that can't be taken away. 

The Owl & Cat will continue to make theatre, & continue to try new ideas fearlessly, we will continue to make art that tackles anything head on & continue to take submissions. Stay updated via our website - www.owlandcat.com.au

I'm incredibly proud of so so so many things we have created over the years like ORGASM, Boys Club, Tinder Box, Erasers, Bordello, killers, RIOT, our sets, The Main Stage seasons, giving poetry nights a venue & hosting friends parties.. oooh baby our parties (they are always great let's be honest!). Just to name a few. I am chuffed that playwrights flew across the globe to see their work on our little concrete stage from the USA & LONDON. 

What I am most proud of though- is something that we can continue from any space. I am so proud that we take the time to consider everyone. Thomas would read scripts for weeks on end literally weeks - all day every day just reading play after play to ensure all the writers who bothered to submit got a fair go, he would demand world premieres even if they don't sell because writers need a chance. I would sit for hours to watch every actor who registered to audition with an open mind no matter what school they went too or experience they had. I remember the rejection emails as a younger actor. & I do understand the time & financial restraints from the other side of it- but that's why I am proud. We did it anyway. Why? Because we love theatre & we know what it is like to fight for what you believe in. The fight can't be easy or it's dull - but you need someone to give you water ringside right? When the people, who wouldn't otherwise have had the chance to try, did with us... & then they succeeded... man... let me tell you, that is better than any drug on this earth. 

A little bit of my heart will stay on Swan Street... BUT no matter where the Owl & Cat's home is - I have no doubt that this spirit of acceptance; innovation & joy will follow us there. 

As Catherine Holder & Carolyn Dawes (Who have been integral to the longevity of this whole operation to date) reminded me on my birthday... 'if you build it they will come'. 

I will keep building & I hope you will come. 

STAY TUNED.... meow.... 

Sincerely,

Gabrielle Savrone

Mistress of The Owl & Cat Theatre

Season:

We Need You More Than Ever


Hullo,

It has been an overwhelmingly exciting year for Red Stitch - sellout houses,. new audiences, loyal supporters, regional tours and a season of acclaimed new work. And, with thanks to you - a small step in the right direction with an increase to our artists fees. We are growing and the outlook for the next 6 months is no exception.
However, the proposed Federal Government budget reform to the Arts announcement last month has sent waves of uncertainty through our community. Red Stitch are among those now vulnerable to funding cuts. Grant applications that were well underway have been scrapped as relevent programs evaporate.
We need our community's support now more than ever! We are committed to advancing the vitality of Australian theatre through nurturing artists and an unerring pursuit of integrity in our craft. But without our audience, theatre doesn't exist. We ask you, our community, to do what you can to ensure Red Stitch is alive and vibrant for years to come.
