we head into winter, things are heating up
at the Lieder – beginning with a special event
just for Lieder members and supporters. At
6.45pm for 7.30pm on Wednesday 21 May you
are invited to the first night of the new
revised interpretation of Carlo Goldoni’s
zany The Servant of Two Masters.
is the play the Lieder Company is taking to
the USA to perform at the 2014 International
Community Theatre Festival – so it will be
a great opportunity to upstage the rest of
the world who won’t see the play until June.
along early so you can also have a chat with
us about the exciting concept design for the
new Lieder Theatre building – with a model
of the proposed structure taking centre stage
in the foyer.
We hope all (I’m a glass half full person)
members and supporters will come to this special
event, thoroughly enjoy the performance and
become as excited as we are about the proposal
for a new energy efficient, sustainable and
brilliant Lieder building in the, hopefully,
not too far distant future. You might even
be interested in helping us reach that goal.
There will be really quite excellent refreshments
at this special members’ and supporters’ event
on Wednesday 21 May, and the cost for tickets
is only $10. You can book online, or by contacting
the Lieder by email firstname.lastname@example.org
or by telephone (02) 4821 5066. We ask that
you RSVP by Monday 19 May so we can cater
After the three-week season of The Servant
of Two Masters, there is another world
premiere at the Lieder Theatre (this will
make three in less than 16 months). The new
play, Life’s a Bitch, is by well-known
Goulburn playwright David Cole who wrote
the popular Windfall - performed
at the Lieder in 2009 – and co-wrote with
John Spicer the acclaimed The Ballad of
Mary Ann Brownlow which was performed
by the Lieder in 2004-5 in Goulburn and around
Life’s a Bitch premieres at the Lieder
on Wednesday 11 June for a 10-day season.
It is a hilarious play about modern life for
humans and canines. While there aren’t actual
dogs in the cast, there are humans, and it
promises to be a romantic comedy like no other.
And it’s great to see the Lieder again supporting
I do hope to see you at the Special Event
on Wednesday 21 May and again during the season
for Life’s a Bitch.
And I wish the cast and crew of The Servant
of Two Masters a fantastic festival performance
and experience in Florida.
