Busting Out all over Tassie

Busting Out all over Tassie

Posted November 10th, 2009 by debritz

The producers are calling it "the show the Thetare Royal didn't want you to see". After being rejected by Hobart's most historic theatre, Simon Bryce and Andrew Guild have found a new venue for their show, Busting Out, and a planned Tasmanian tour will go ahead next year. It will run at the Derwent Entertainment Centre, in "lyric mode", on June 11, along with dates in Launceston, Burnie and Devonport. Bryce said in a media statement: “I’ve taken it as a personal challenge to get this production to Tasmania. Why should a show that’s been seen by over 230,000 people in over 50 other theatres around Australia and New Zealand, miss out on coming to Tasmania?” You can read more about the saga and the show, starring Emma Powell and Bev Killick, here and here.
