Pambula-based touring group Footprint Theatre is ready to thrill audiences with its next show, to be staged at Pambula-Merimbula Golf Club from August 24 to September 1.

Directed by Kerry Hynes, spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s live radio broadcast of the master of suspense’s earlier films. 

With 'The Lodger', 'Sabotage' and 'The 39 Steps', Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer’s ominous presence, and a devastating explosion, through the magic of live actors, sound effects and musical underscoring.

Audiences are encouraged to dress in 1940s style and become the ‘live studio audience’ for each performance, with a prize for the best dressed.

There are matinees at 2pm on Friday, August 24 and Saturday, September 1. Evening shows are at 7.30pm on Friday 24, Saturday 25 and Friday 31 August and Saturday 1 September.

Tickets cost between $15 and $25.

More details are available at Footprint Theatre's website at www.footprint.org.au or by calling 6495 7160.

Footprint Theatre is a touring community theatre group based around Pambula.

They don’t have a ‘home theatre’ and instead do street theatre, perform at outdoor events and festivals, and have readings and radio plays or staging theatre performances in country halls or outdoor venues.
