David Williamson's Let the Sunshine Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre presents award winning Australian playwright David Williamson's Let the Sunshine on Saturday, March 10 at 7:30pm.

W

illiamson's Let the Sunshine is part Romeo and Juliet, part Meet the Parents. Toby and Ros are retired left wing radicals who flee to an upmarket Sunshine Coast seaside town to escape scandal in Sydney. Ros meets an old school friend Natasha, who is married to Ron, a hugely wealthy property developer. The connection between the two couples seems destined to be brief and acrimonious

except for one thing… When their children find romance together, the patter of tiny feet brings on the clashing of egos and then, in typical Williamson fashion, it’s on for young and old! Directed by Denis Moore, Let The Sunshine features an all star cast including Peter Phelps (Stingers), Alexandra Fowler (All Saints), Dennis Coard (Home & Away), Toni Scanlan (Water Rats), Ryan Hayward (Casualty) and Hannah Norris Tickets are adult $40, concession $35, group bookings for six or more $35 each. To book tickets contact the box office on 03 5722 8105 between 10am-4pm Monday-Friday. The cast of Let The Sunshine during rehearsals.
