Letters: Theatre truly magical

Letters: WOW, Wow, Wow. Hands up all those who saw Mary Poppins the musical at the Brolga Theatre.

It's heartening to see that despite the threat of techo gadgets taking over our leisure time we are still drawn to experience the magic that is live theatre. And what magic Mary Poppins was.

The cast and magic- performing sets were amazing. The matinee I attended was filled with little children and not a peep was heard from them because they were spellbound from start to finish. And when Mary Poppins literally flew high overhead across the theatre we all just gasped. What a magical way it was to introduce our next generation to the wonders of the theatre.

As a former board member of the Brolga Theatre, the promotion and support of community theatre was foremost on the board's agenda. Community theatre will be kept alive thanks to our abundant and outstanding local talent, and each new production finds more.

Maryborough is blessed to have the Brolga Theatre and such talent on our doorstep.
