Gin and Tonics were flowing, fabulous food was consumed and gym gear was adorned; all in the name of community spirit and the arts! The show was attended by nearly 100 people including Ross Beckett, Country Arts WA Chairperson who travelled all the way from Esperance!
The Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council was proud to bring the Country Arts WA touring show “Gym and Tonic” to the Hopetoun Everett Golf Club on Monday May 25th 2015. The show was created and performed by Roz Hammond, as seen on Muriel’s Wedding, The Librarians and Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell!
Roz Hammond played eight different gym-junkie characters in her self-penned, one woman show, based on her own work as a trainer in a women's gym.
The vision was to make it more than just the show with additions such as delicious platters by Steele and Streets Woodfired Treats and café style cakes available after the show with proceeds going to the Hopetoun P&C.
Audience members were encouraged to dress up in their gym gear and participate in a mock “circuit” as they entered the Golf Club. Special mention to Carly Reeve who was awarded the best-dressed prize on the night. Carly won a massage voucher for Cassie’s Remedial Massage that was kindly donated by Cassie Badcock.
We thank the local community for supporting the Arts Council and coming along to the show, we hope everyone had an amazing night out!
The next Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council show is The Lost WW1 Diary by Damien Callinan at the Jerdacuttup Hall on Saturday August 29th 2015. It will be the last Country Arts WA touring show of the year that the RRAC will present in collaboration with the Jerdacuttup Community Association, so see you there!!!
