The 6th annual SHAKESPEARE AT THE TANKS: “It’s an epic journey for love” says Director, Avril Duck, “but it’s madcap and full of dubious motives and uncomfortable clinches.”

This year we have decided to tackle another, slightly “lesser known” comedy, with a title that has become a part of the lexicon. “All’s Well that End’s Well” is about the folly of youth, the frustration of age and the triumph of commitment (or perhaps obsessive persistance/underserved love?). Well, at least that’s how we begin…
At the close of 2012, Tropical Arts Association Inc has had an AGM, Christmas Party and we are now awaiting the DVD of our production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The show was very well recieved by our audiences and it was the largest and most ambitious so far in terms of cast and partners. There were up to 85 in the cast (varied from night to night!) aged from 4-74 with 12 paid professionals, 25+ school students, 22+ performers with a disability and a great range of talented community actors. Backstage was just as diverse and exciting.
Tanks Arts Centre, Song Connection and ARC Disability services came along with us for the ride and we made sure there was a place for almost everyone who showed up, no matter how close to the production. Please enjoy the photographs to see just how colourful and happening it was.
Have a safe festive season and see you next year…Cheers Avril
