Bounce back.

3 11 2013

Wow. What a trip.

Last week we finished up our “critically acclaimed” sold-out world debut season of TRAMPOLINE and I’m still finding it hard to put into words just how truly amazing it was. We had such amazing crowds, overwhelming great reviews and such positive feedback from the general public. For my first show back in Australia and my first brand new show in a few years, I was so relived to have the play so well received. I must admit, I put a lot of pressure on myself with this project, it was a huge undertaking, but I really couldn’t have asked for a better result. I am so incredibly proud of the show and all the people involved, this reminded my why I do what I do and why I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

I want to say a MASSIVE thanks to my cast-mates Ben and Amanda, who really brought the characters in this show to Iife in a way I could’ve never imaged, I am so honoured to work with you both. To our director Damon, thank you for pushing us in each rehearsal to really bring the text to life and give it the heart, comedy and pathos it deserved. Our Stage Manager Louise who came on board fairly last minute but became an invaluable and extremely joyous member of our team and I hope we can all work together again soon. Thanks also to Mike deGrussa, Cherie Hewson, all at The Blue Room Theatre and all else who helped work on the show.

“Working with a strong script, skilful technical support and talented comic actors, Trampoline is a perfect dream for creators and audiences alike… Short, sweet, quirky, produced with passion – Trampoline has all the elements that demonstrate why The Blue Room Theatre is such a vital part of Perth’s cultural milieu. ✭✭✭✭1/2″ – artsHubs.com.au

COMING SOON another Canadian show debuts in Oz! I will getting ROTTEN again and rocking that hideous bright orange hair again when Vicious Circles makes it’s way to Perth and Adelaide for a few festivals early 2014 and I for one, cannot wait for Aussies to see the sweatiest, dirtiest, more-drugged fucked punk-rock play ever. Keep an eye for “official” announcements for dates and venues soon! In the meantime you can help support the show by donating to the VICIOUS CIRCLE INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN here and help pay to bring over the Montreal cast. We would really like it if you did that.

Trampoline – Week 2 – REVIEWS

14 10 2013

“Adamczak, takes that idea of boy meets girl and turns it on its head, creating a wonderfully absurd piece that will have you laughing in your seat….Trampoline is easily one of the funniest plays I have seen in a while; a darkly comic take on a familiar theme, which will have you laughing right from the outset.” – The AU Review

The show is off to a great start, a completely sold out first week and some great reviews starting to pop up (will post more as they come out). I am joyfully overwhelmed with the response* so far and am extremely proud of everyone involved in this show. But there’s still work to be done…

Good tickets still available for the rest of the season, but are selling fast, so if you don’t want to miss out (and you don’t want to miss out, do you?!) make sure you book through The Blue Room Theatre Website. Booking in advance is fun and easy. We like when you do it.

“ This dark comedy is equal parts touching, funny, awkward and sad, and the characters will tug at your heartstrings and refuse to let go.” –Bloodyunderrated.net (Canada)

“The three-person cast were incredible, clearly experienced performers, who immersed themselves in their roles and drew the audience into the tale from the very beginning. …The 60 minute play was performed without a hitch, and was, and is likely to remain, the most enjoyable hour of my week. I cannot recommend this production more highly.” – Colosoul Magazine

“Shane has skilfully constructed a superb script with several genres of comedy, from subtle to slapstick, all smoothly blended…The acting under the directorship of Damon Lockwood was wonderful. The expressions, characterisation, accents and body language were well-observed and fully exploited, to achieve maximum fun…One of the Blue Room’s funniest shows for a long time. Great team work. Highly recommended.” – Theatre Australia

*I don’t know if I can treat it as a credible media source, but a friend’s teenage daughter told me she liked the show “Even more than WICKED” which really made me smile.
