Movie extras needed

IT’S 1965 in Sandy Point. It’s summer, love is in the air and there are iconic Australian rock and pop songs on the radio.

That’s the background to the brand new musical created by local writer, Chris Dickins, for Foster theatre company, FAMDA, to perform as part of the Prom Coast Seachange Festival.

Titled Waratah the Musical, it is coming to Foster in April and May 2015 and you can be part of it now.

Part of the musical involves a movie sequence to be shot on the beach at Sandy Point.

Several cast members have already been getting into the mood by visiting Sandy Point beach.

Now people of all ages, visitors as well as locals, are invited to swell the ranks of movie extras on the sands at 2pm next Sunday, January 4.

Come dressed for a day at the beach and hopefully filming will be completed by 4pm.

The assembly point is at the south end of the beach and there will be FAMDA people with Waratah signs and instructions on what is required.

For further details contact the director, Chris Dickins on 5682 2151 or tribes@chrisdickins.com or check www.famda.org.au

FAMDA also needs two young men, aged in their late teens or early 20s, for the show. Anyone with singing and dancing skills can contact Chris Dickins.

FAMDA also needs colourful 1965ish beach towels to decorate the hall for the musical.

Donate your old beach towel and you could win a free family pass to see the show and your towel on stage.

Attach your name and contact phone number to your old towel and drop it in to the Waratah box at Offshore Surf School in Sandy Point, Revelations in Foster, Green Heart Organics in Inverloch, the Venus Bay Community Centre or the RACV shop in Wonthaggi.

There are lots of ways to have a brush with fame with Waratah.
