MYSTERY IN THE AIR
MALENY COMMUNITY CENTRE SUNDAY 7TH APRIL 2.00PM
“… hilarious tribute to the glamour, the style and the political incorrectness that was the pre-television era.” The Daily Edition
“Comedy legend Michael Veitch deploys his talents for turn-on-a-dime mimicry and timing, playing off Simon Oat’s perfect rendition of 40’s radio matinee idol. Two men, charged with turning out daily drama, at war with each other … This is live comedy at its finest, laughter but with heart, slapstick with a study of character, succinct enough to leave you wanting more. ” Guy Rundle
Michael Veitch (Fast Forward, D Gen) is back doing what he is loved for – original comedy. Simon Oats joins him on stage as the perfect matinee idol rogue, dashing former Squadron Leader, Tony ‘The Ace’ Hamilton.
Set in a 1940’s radio station the original radio plays, Flash Gordon and The Wax Works Museum are performed, but there’s even more drama on stage from the ‘off-air’ shenanigans.
Sharply written, intelligent comedy that crosses politically correct boundaries but manages to hold the audience by their heart-strings. A much-loved fading star is feeling the heat from a dashing newcomer. Talent vs stability, old vs new … the drama doesn’t just go ‘live-to-air’ – the laughs come from everywhere!
This is without a doubt terrific entertainment with big laughs at a cracking pace.
