Ups and Downs

‘Life has its ups and downs’, as the saying goes.

This turned out to be an especially appropriate title for the recent stage performance by the Southern Highlands Club Trust Drama Group, after the production end up being eighteen months in the making thanks to many setbacks including COVID lockdown restrictions.

But to quote another oft used saying, ‘The show must go on’, and, thanks to the dedication and determination of the cast and crew, it did so with a bang.

Drama teacher for the group, Mandy, was delighted, as she explained.

“I was so proud of the cast of Harriett, Harrison, Sophie and Cameron. The performance took countless hours of rehearsal, script writing, sourcing material and sheer determination”.

Even rain on the day of the performance couldn’t deter 25 people from attending The Venue in Bowral to see the cast take the stage for ‘Ups and Downs’.

After the show, the cast were more than happy to answer audience questions about the performance including the preparation for the show and standing in front of a group of people.

Another highlight of the show was an exhibition of works by the Southern Highlands Art Group, who displayed paintings in the foyer. Work by this group of talented artists featured recently in the local media and in The Disability Trust newsletter. The paintings were available to be purchased for $40 with all the proceeds going to the artist. There were some very impressive pieces on display, and six of them were sold.
