Masquerade by Kate Mulvany. Directed by Carole Patullo.
In a wondrous world of riddles and hidden treasure, bumbling Jack Hare is on a race against time to deliver a message of love from the Moon to the Sun. Far, far away in a world just like ours, a mother cheers her son Joe with the tale of Jack Hare’s adventure. But when Jack’s mission goes topsy-turvy, Joe and his mum must come to the rescue, and the line between the two worlds becomes blurred forever.
With a cast of 17 ensemble members, this magical play with music was performed at the Southern Peninsula Arts Centre. Directed by Carole Patullo with musical direction by Anna Durham (Mornington Peninsula resident and 2017 VCA Music Graduate) with a live 5-piece orchestra.
