SASFEST – Short and Sweet One Act Play Festival – 23,24 & 25th August 2019
So SaSFesT is upon us – about fabulous women who did amazing things. WHEN HEDY MET GEORGE and QUEEN OF THE MIST. Hedy Lamarr invented a secret wartime communication system that could keep the enemy from interfering with a ship’s torpedoes, whilst also being the ‘most beautiful women in the world’ …. she was almost as busy as Michaela Gregory who takes on the role of Hedy Lamarr in SOOTs SASFEST production of When Hedy met George…. and George was just the ‘badest boy of music!’ just like Matthew Bertram… so musical that lad! Annie Edson Taylor was an American schoolteacher who, on her 63rd birthday, spoiled herself with a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Well, who hasn’t got time to treat yourself to a bit of barrelling theatre! Join Skin of our Teeth and Mary Steuten as Annie in this soaking good rollick as part of SASFEST – superb story, sublime actors!

Pride and Prejudice – August 2015
“What a hilarious night in the theatre! A huge shout out to Christine Davey and all the cast of Skin Of Our Teeth’s “Pride & Prejudice” at the Shenton Theatre tonight. Some Oscar-winning performances there, not least of which was Christine’s own ring in cameo, standing in for the (also great) Jacqui Connor who was ill. Just loved seeing you up there Christine. Would also be remiss of me not to mention the flawless performance of Lauren Ann Crute too – one of the best character portrayals I’ve seen on Geelong stages for many a year. Plenty of other great moments too from many others in the cast. A few shows left, folks, grab your tickets while you can!!”
