WTC President Joshua Ferguson’s Cov… festive update for going into 2021!
It is with great pleasure that I am able to write to everyone, as the newly elected President of the Wyndham Theatre Company for 2020/2021.
This year has tested all of us on the committee, in the community and around the world. But with restrictions easing, things are getting better! I look forward to being able to meet you, without a mask, sanitiser and social distancing.
Our 2020 season was brought to an abrupt halt early this year, leaving our valued directors, actors, committee and community without the wonderful art of performance. However, even though we were overshadowed by lockdown we still added two wins to our name.
Working with Artistic Director, playwright and professional partner, Alaine Beek, WTC took home several awards, including Judges’ award for Best Script and People’s Choice award for Best Production - at Ark Fest in March with “A Good Coffee” written by Alaine Beek.
We also won the VDL Monologue Competition for best Adult Comedy (written by A. Beek) for “Benedict III”, including the converted Judges award for “…lavish period set and costume… and sound design,” by Max of Cascader Classic.
Going into 2021 will have its challenges no doubt, but with government easing restrictions and the wonderful supportive team of the Wyndham Theatre Company, we can look forward to a bright and colourful new year.
Happily, our major play is up for consideration, to run in early May, then One Acts in late August. Completing the year will be our Christmas special, with our partnership company Essence Productions, putting on “Scrunch Test” in late November 2021.
The epic task of finding a home is still on the top of our list but several options are under consideration. During the end of year period, celebrating the community is key to end this challenging year for all of us, during this festive season.
The trials and tribulations we all face, with dare I mention that word, Covid, is uncertain, but the WTC is still here, strong and always looking for new faces to join our established ones, to work together to put the spotlight on the West of Melbourne and a smile all around us.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact us, even just for a yarn, or to speak to us about upcoming projects or ideas you may have, and we will endeavour to help you in the best way possible.
Yours through the struggle,
