Put Yourself In A Mechanoid

A piccy of Kryten. WHAT A RUBBISH MASK. IT SPOILS THE WHOLE PROGRAMME.What have we here? The Blak Yak Theatre in Perth, Australia, are staging a production of the original Series 2 episode Kryten, that’s what. Details are as follows:

Dates: March 17th, 19th, 20th, 24th, 26th, 27th, 31st, and April 2nd, 3rd.
Time: 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Venue: Kalamunda Performing Arts Centre, Canning Rd (next to the High School), Kalamunda WA

This follows on from their first Dwarf production in October 2002 (presumably, an adaptation of The End). The cast is: Nick Donald as Dave Lister (who also wrote the adaptation; of the original script “by Doug Naylor & Rob Grant” apparently), Alex Jones as Arnold J. Rimmer, Chris Thomas as Cat, Jarrod Buttery as Holly, and Scott Northover as Kryten; and it’s directed by Tim Edwards.

Sounds like it could be a fun night out; and at least slightly better than my re-enactment of the Chicken Merango scene I did in front of my WHOLE YEAR when I was 13 (with plenty of Howling Cat Sounds). Anyone here who lives in Australia going? Incidentally, the same team have also done an adaptation of Men Behaving Badly (at the bottom of the page). Nice. There’s more about this “young and vibrant community theatre” on their website.
