Live Theatre is Back at Redcliffe

Live Theatre is Back at Redcliffe

If you’ve missed seeing live theatre, here’s some good news – it’s back! Redcliffe Musical Theatre’s first production since the COVID-19 shutdown opens on July 24.

It’s Minefield and Miniskirts – an Australian drama about the Vietnam War as told by Australian women.

RMT President Madeleine Johns says it brings to life a collage of true stories: the extraordinary experiences of the women who played a part in the War in Vietnam.

A volunteer, a journalist, an entertainer, a nurse and the wife of a veteran relive their time in Vietnam – from the glitz and glamour of lavish parties, to caring for the soldiers and orphans and the displacement of returning to civilian life in Australia.

The roles are played by well-known and accomplished actors – Deborah Rubendra, Phillipa Bowe, Jacqueline Kerr, Pauline Davies and Madeleine Johns.

“It’s hard-hitting and raw – real recollections from people who actually experienced the war first-hand or through their spouse,” Madeleine explains.

What to expect

Madeleine says RMT is thrilled to be up and running again, and hopes the community will support the production after a long break due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Redcliffe Musical Theatre has been gradually returning to business over the past month and we have been closely monitoring the regulations and restrictions recommended by the Queensland Government over this time to ensure the safety of our staff, performers and audiences,” she explains.

“You will notice that things will look quite different at the theatre as we aim to deliver our productions as safely as possible. We are following the Stage 3 Queensland COVID Safe Industry Plan.”

All tickets will be offered as general admission to enable organisers to develop personalised seating plan for each performance, so groups booking together can sit together but also keep a safe distance from others.

Pre-packaged food items will be on sale at the canteen and patrons are being encouraged to pre-order drinks and snacks to minimise queues.

Doors will open 30 minutes before the performance so guests can be seated early to minimise queues. The details of all guests will be recorded at the time of booking and checked as they arrive at the venue.

“These are unusual times for us and we ask that you respect and follow instructions from our venue staff in order for us all to remain safe and well – and enjoy a return to live theatre,” Madeleine says.
