Dinky-di Dinkum Assorted

Petrina Dakin (Connie), Nicole Hickman (Little Beat) and Carol Fogg (Grace)
in QLTG's Dinkum Assorted
In the Dinkum Assorted biscuit factory in Warrabadanga (otherwise known as the Queenscliff RSL rehearsal room) the ladies are curling up their Victory Rolls and Marcel Waves and getting to grips with WW2 underwear in preparation for the latest offering from Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group, October 12-20 at Queenscliff Uniting Church Hall.

Dinkum Assorted’s Director, Jennie Roles is in command, keeping her troops on top of the dialogue and stage movements and interpreting the challenges of Linda Aronson’s play brilliantly.

Well-thumbed and highlighted scripts are being clutched in anxious hands as the ladies learn their parts; not easy with 15 roles for 15 very different characters and lots of punchy and poignant dialogue to commit to memory.

As the scenery is still under construction, the rehearsal room is awash with odd boxes, tables and chairs, representing the interior of the factory. Ladies will often be found popping up in the middle of the (invisible) oven to say their piece!

Maestro Ron Sudden, aka Father Mulcahey, is fine-tuning the ladies in their magnificent harmonies as they belt out some well-loved WW2 classics – some rousing, some bitter-sweet.

QLTG invite you to come and sample their batch of Dinkum Assorted biscuits; there really is something for everyone’s tastes.

Oh, and did we mention the goat?

Dinkum Assorted

Presented by Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group
October 12-20
Queenscliff Uniting Church Hall

Probably the only play in the world written for a cast of fifteen women and a nanny goat, Dinkum Assorted by Linda Aronson is a wild comedy with music and tap dancing, set alongside some thought-provoking stories about women striving for personal and professional freedom. 

Set during the wartime spring of 1942 in the remote outback town of Warrabadanga, the female workers at the Dinkum Assorted Biscuit Factory are battling to keep the biscuits baking.

For these ordinary Aussie women in a town devoid of men, life is challenging. Not only are they fighting to save the factory machinery from being sold for scrap, they're running a 'Mum's Army' Civil Defence Unit, putting on a show for the war effort and coping with the sudden arrival of 2000 American airmen stationed just outside town.

Directed by Jennie Roles with musical direction by Ron Sudden and featuring a cast of 15 local ladies, Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group's production of Dinkum Assorted opens Friday October 12th at Queenscliff Uniting Church Hall with evening performances at 7:30pm on the 12th, 13th, 18th, 19th and 20th, and 2:00pm matinees on the 13th, 14th and 20th.

Tickets are $29 for adults, $25 concession and $20 for groups of 20 or more, and are available through this website by clicking on the link below, or at the Queenscliffe Visitor Information Centre, 55 Hesse St Queenscliff. Ph: 03 5258 4843
