‘The Jinglists’

Saturday 22 September 2012

 Professional Theatre Comes to Coolamon!

 Coolamon’s Up-to-Date Cultural Precinct will host its first live theatre performance on Saturday 22nd September when the Independent Theatre Company of Australia presents ‘The Jinglists’ , a fast past comedy which is sure to entertain the audience.   Described by the Sydney Morning Herald’s Theatre Critic as a ‘a slickly produced hour-and-ten of cleverly orchestrated comedy and adroit ad jingle parodies…” the performance is being held in Coolamon as part of the Theatre Company’s State-wide ‘Critical Stages’ Tour.

Coordinator of the Up-To-Date Store Precinct, David McCann said that securing the one night only performance was a significant coup for Coolamon and recognised the versatility of the Up-to-Date Store Precinct.   ‘This will be the first professional theatre performance at the Up-to-date Store Precinct and highlights the venues cultural value to the community’ Mr McCann said.

The performance will be of interest to anyone who enjoys live theatre and those with an interest in the performing arts.   The story follows step-brothers and jingle-writing geniuses Leigh and Loman who live in their own little world. They haven’t left their apartment in 30 years and are barely on nodding terms with reality, but they find comfort and meaning in their work, crafting brain-searing, highly infectious melodies for products they know little about. Though their existence may seem abnormal they live and work in “relative” harmony in the search for the perfect jingle.

Until one day their lives are thrown into turmoil when they glimpse the girl of their dreams through the mail-hole of their apartment door. Leigh and Loman battle each other for the love and affection of a girl they’ve never met and who they will probably never glimpse again. In the world Leigh and Loman it is a battle of epic proportions.

This extraordinary comedy with it’s with razor sharp wit, slick physical comedy and hilarious musical numbers that will stay with you long after the curtain falls and is a show not to miss on tour in 2012.   ‘The Jinglists’ will be at the Up-to-Date Store Precinct for one night only on Saturday 22nd September at 7pm.

Tickets for ‘The Jinglists’ will be available from the Up-to-Date Store and Coolamon Shire Council Office.   Advanced bookings can be made by contacting David McCann on 69272379.   Seating at the Up-to-Date Store is limited and with considerable interest in this live theatre performance around the region, the community is urged to book early so as not to miss this exciting performance.
