Recently the Whyalla Players Committee had the pleasure of awarding Whyalla Scaffolding the 2021 Services To Theatre Award.

The award is given by the Committee in recognition of, what we deem to be, outstanding service to theatre.

Darryl Durdin has provided scaffolding as a base for our sets for Little Shop of Horrors, Three Musketeers, and, more recently, Beauty and the Beast and Mamma Mia!

Darryl’s generous donations of scaffolding, as well as staff hours to erect and dismantle, has meant that we have been able to maximise our performance budgets and get the most out of the limited funds we have available. There is no doubt that without his generous donations, our musicals would not have been as successful as they were!

Community partnerships are very important to the Whyalla Players and are integral to the success of the Arts in our community.
We value the relationship we have formed with Whyalla Scaffolding and are pleased to present the award in recognition of it!

Oh, one I can answer! 1. Cosi 3. Show was performed in the Whyalla High Drama Unit and in Roxby 4. Mr Matt Mallee 5. I think the character is Zach? Only thing I can’t remember was the year. This was an amazing play, with an awesome cast! A real pity that it didn’t have a longer run really!

Cosi cast photo

Kylie Tonkin wow knew it was Matt, main memory is toilet roll hair does and Warren Mc swearing, at WHS. nice little production !

Here we have Kym Clayton as the lead in GODSPELL in 1984. Can anyone tell us where this production was performed? It wasn't on the Middleback Theatre stage that we use today.

Yep. It was in the College Theatre. I remember it well, especially the ‘religious’ protesters outside the theatre who condemned us to the fire pits of hell for having the audacity to perform the show. It wasn’t performed “in the round” however.

A full band, I think. No radio mics back then either. Not a great theatre to work in. But a fantastic space. So versatile . Many a good cast party held.

Yes, Jo, and ruffling Grahame Eaton’s hair (?) as you worked the crowd in the aisles! Many cherished memories of that production.

I’m more concerned with why that woman on the right forgot her pants… 🤔 Maybe her quick change was too quick?! 🤣 (I’m joking, I realise you wore leotards in the 80s.)

College Theatre in the round.

I remember going to watch this performance… I was a student of Ray Estall at the time …

Loved this show

Would it be in the old institute hall or the Tafe theatre

I think it was in the Tafe stage in the round

Was it the College Theatre?

Hey Kym - Turn back O man - my cameo after coming back from OS?

Darrell Boothey … we’re you stage manager

Oh such wonderful memories here! Am I allowed to name it???? Or can I just say the playing the role of Annie is still one of my favourite highlights of my musical career!

i recognise lots of them, and quite a few no longer with us unfortunately! Great show,

Oh the memories! Mother and son in this one ( last one before he went west).

I, surprisingly, recognise 5 or 6 faces in there! Neva, Glen, Stewart, Val, Nick, Wal… then a few faces I recognise but can’t pick 30years older now… 😜 Love it!

OMG. I had to look hard to recognise me. I don’t think I was in that one. I reckon I choreographed it. See Peter Shandley among all the other faces already mentioned. Such lovely memories of all these folks.

Isabell Campbell her husband Alec and Peter Shandly just behind her

Would have to be 93/94

Great times!! Thanks for sharing Val ❤️

There's no business like show business!

Yes, definitely went to see this one and think I still have the programme too! Lol

Annie get Your Gun! With Frank’s geriatric posse! Early 90s. 92?

Wal Pawlik 5th left in 2nd from back row. Maybe Peter Brown far right, back row

Annie get your gun??

Ann clapp, Matt goh? Kate Bruer, maria D? Wendy renton, Michelle? Kylie Batt, Mr Shandley

Wendy Scuderi is that your lovely hubby there in the back row??

Was Garry Judd mentioned?

Steve Aitchison ☺️ Colin Faulds 🎭 Walerwee Val 😍

It’s “THROW BACK THURSDAY”

Welcome to our first “Throw back Thursday” post. An idea from our President Kylie Tonkin to bring back some memories of our past productions and hopefully encourage some good interaction with our members and followers.

Todays memory is of our first ever Pantomime ”Santa in Space” which was performed in 1992.

Keep an eye out for upcoming information about this year’s Pantomime. There will be opportunities to audition as well as being involved behind the scenes.

I have experience as assistant director, backstage crew, acting and historical fencing (NOT stage fighting) and just moved in from Adelaide half a week ago. I don't yet know how much time I have to commit yet but keen to at least see the local players at work

I can help out somewhere but not sure if I can commit to a big thing at present

Will Faulds - Widow Twanky?

Leroy Jacob Rincon right up your alley

Bec Werner thinking you can help with costumes???

I will help wherever needed

I can help paint things but that’s about it xD

2022 I hope you mean!

Because we knew you, we have been changed for good.

This is sad news. Vale, Matt. A larger than life personality. He came to Whyalla to see our productions of ‘Phantom’ and ‘Poppins’.

Without the generous support from these local businesses it would be impossible to perform like we do.

Isabel (Bella) Campbell was a member, and later a life member, of the Players for more than three decades. Her beautiful smile, cheeky sense of humour and lovely singing voice were just a few of the things she bought to our organisation and she will be missed!
Everyone who knew Bella adored her and the world is a darker place without her in it!
Vale Bella, reunited at last with your wee Alec!
We love you and will always remember to move “to the right!!!”

Condolences to Bella’s family and friends xx

It was a pleasure treading the boards with you Bella. I’ll treasure the many memories I have of you on and off the stage. You were the brightest shining star and I will miss you. Your curtain has come down one last time, I wish there was an encore. Rest peacefully Beautiful Bella, (Isabel Campbell) thank you for your friendship xxx

🎭 oh the fun we had over the years. Our darling Bella. We competed for the Princess roles for so many years, and I’m sure I pipped her at the post every time, but someone else always got the role over us(must have slept with the directors we worked out). Rest with wee Alec darlin xxxx

We might be in Lockdown but that hasn’t stopped us from rehearsing our show, Mamma Mia, coming to the MAC in late August 2021.

Last night we Zoomed, FaceTimed, Skyped and emailed each other to run through lines, practice songs and go over dance moves!

That’s commitment!!!!

Stay tuned for some lockdown introductions to our cast.. 😉
